The paper jam light won't stop flashing on my Brother HL-2070N laser
printer. I've tried everything...more paper, less paper, running
cardstock through the paper path with the printer turned off, cleaning
the feed wheels, opening and closing all of the doors, turning it off
and on, unplugging it, changing the settings (Tray settings > Manual
> paper size changed from "undefined" to "letter"), holding down
the big blue "Go" button. There is no paper jam, and nothing will stop
the light from flashing. All of these things seem to have worked for
someone or other out there, but none of them are working for me.
hate to throw out what otherwise seems like a perfectly good printer,
but it won't work unless I get this light to stop flashing. I can't
afford to take it to a repair shop, so any other suggestions would be

First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.
From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.
There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).
Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.
The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,
Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.
Usually there is a sensor right before the paper enters the fuser. If the paper sensor is bad the machine will stop feeding and output the error paper jam. This is probably the cuase if the paper stops in the same position all the time.
most likely a sensor is tripped, eiher it's stuck or there is something blocking it. the most likely place is in the fuser, back door where paper exits and geta hot. look closely you should see a black lever towards the middle of the fuser, it should be up
