Keep getting "out of paper" error message

Even though I have a full tray, half tray, one or two pages; I keep getting an error "out of paper".....I have had the printer for about 20 mos and never had any other issues....... The printer que does show the items to be printed but just can't get the paper to route through the printer. Can you provide some insight into what I can do to get rid of the mentioned error???

Re: Keep getting "out of paper" error message

Unfortunately this printer and alot of others like it have a very poor paper feed mechanism. I am finding that the (1) small pickup roller that is used in this and other machines like it is failing (not picking paper) prematurely or faster than i think it should (this is looking at page counts on some of these machines). We have been disassembling them and rubber restoring the pickup roller which fixes the paper jam/paper out errors.

Why does my 2040 Paper light (Red) keep flashing even though the paper tray is full and there is no paper jam?


There are several possibilities with too many to type here so, here is a link to the Brother troubleshooting page that gives several causes for the flashing red light. When you get to the page, scroll down until you see the "lashing "paper" light.

Hope this helps.

Printed 47 pages, paper for page 48 started to feed incorrectly & was yanked out. However, LCD keeps saying paper jam even though entire paper was retrieved. Turning machine off, on, examined for any...

More likely especially if the paper was pulled out backwards, that the paper sensor just before the platen roller is bent or broken. When you pull paper back up thru the feeder it gets caught on this sensor tab and it gets bent, holding it up just like a paper scrap would. If it's broken or you can't locate it to bend it straight, you will need a shop to repair your printer.

Brother HC4040CN displays error message NO PAPER even though paper tray is full. Will not feed paper from Main tray.

The paper sensor flag above the paper tray on the printer chassis is either stuck or has broken of. You need to take the printer for repairs.

Not noticing paper

I took an envelope, folded in the end to triple its thickness and placed it in the middle of the paper tray underneath the very last page. This pushed the center of the paper up more and it had no problem detecting or getting hold of the paper. Have to be sure the paper supply tray is full though. When it gets to the last five or seven pages it has difficulty again. It's a nontechnical fix, but it seems to work.
