When I turn on Brother HL-2140 printer the light "Error" flashes. I tried to open the paper feeding plate, the door from behind of the printer, I don't see any remains of the paper there. What could be the reason and how could I solve it? Thanks, Ilya
Reset printer by removing toner tray and drum, then while printer power is turned off hold down power button andkeep it held down while you flip side power button on. Then after a few seconds release the top power button and reinstall toner tray. It should print out a couple of test pages and then be fine.

If the error light is flashing it means that Either there is a paper jam in the machine or the back or front cover is open.
If the error light is ON, it means that there is no paper in tray one or manual tray. Some times from certain programs it will ask the printer for the manual tray because it feels that the margins are too big.
Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed slot above the paper tray.
Too many things can cause that, you remove the drum and run the blue tab back and forth to clean the corona about 20 times, the fuser may not be heating and you need a new fuser, Feel for heat in the back door or at the exit, If the drum is used up you open the front door and press go until the lights flash to reset. Make sure the paper tray is fully inserted, this one is picky. You may need a shop to diagnose.
If the light is steady (not flashing), it means a paper problem. Either the paper tray is empty, or maybe the document you're trying to print is set to 'manual feed.' If the latter, then modify the page setup in properties, to use the defult paper tray.
