Brother HL-2140 Error light is flashing

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.

Try to unplug the power from the print, wait 1 minute then plug back in.

This may remove the error.

This will:

Paper light flashing on my brothers HL-2040 printer. I fanned the paper still keeps flashing


Hello ,

Please follow the below steps to try and clear this message.

  1. Turn the power off on the unit.
  2. Open the front and back cover of the unit.
  3. Remove the drum and toner cartridge from the unit.
  4. Check thoroughly inside for any paper jams or any other foreign objects and remove them.
  5. Reinsert the drum and toner and close the front and back cover.
  6. Turn the unit back on.
If the light keeps flashing you will want to check to see if you need to feed paper through the manual feed.

The manual feed is the opening on the front of the printer, just place a page there.

This should clear the error message on the display screen and allow you to resume normal use of the printer.

Thanks,

Pat

Connected to printer via USB cable, worked in the past, now it just doesn't print -says 'error'


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.

For the HL-2140 Brother printer, the red error


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.

Red Error light is on, what is this error and how to get out of it?


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.
