Hi, I agree with the previous comment, it sound like the typical 'paper jam' case. Make sure the rollers and the inside of the printer are clean. I know it's not the same model but this manual helped me a lot. Take a look if you are not familiar how your printer works ;) Brother HL-2240 manual

This is a paper jamb problem. There is a piece of torn paper stuck in the paper path that is stopping the printed page from exiting properly.

Paper keeps jamming after 10 -20 sheets,please help


if your fuser rollers look clean and even it could be pickup issue. It's easy to fix in 3 steps.
  1. Remove left cover (where the USB connection is located);
  2. Remove big black gear with a spring on it (you may need to unscrew the PCB that partially covers it);
  3. There is a clutch that sticks to the rubber pad behind this gear. You may put a piece of scotch tape towards to a rubber pad, so the plastic from clutch mechanism would'n stick anymore.

I have a Brother HL-2040 and the Toner light is on. I have replaced the toner but it still will not print. Can you advise if there is a easy solution to this problem?


Front panel of printer (manual paper feed is in the middle of this panel) has tabs on the right & left and will fold out and down. Remember to shake the toner right-left to loosen the toner before putting back in the unit. To reset the printer, and with the front door still open, hold the GO-Control button down until all lights are on, then let go, close up front door. Power off & back on and you should be set.

Printed paper is stalling within the output.


That's a common problem on that machine, those rollers at the exit get coated with toner and fuser oil, so they have no grip to pull the paper thru. If you dampen a rag with alcohol and power off the printer, each time you turn it on or close the front door the rollers turn and you hold the damp rag against the exit rollers one at a time to clean them...

Will not pick up paper from tray. Red light blinks indicating a paper jam. Prints fine if single sheet thru bypass slot.


Not picking up paper indicates either a worn nip roller (rubber on feed spindle) or you have a broken gear in the feed mechanism.

Paper jamed


Sounds like the fuser is causing the jam. Anything from a dislocated pic finger to other paper debry can be causing these types of jams.
If you open the back door, will the page exit the printer fine of does it still jam?
If it still jams the fuser is definatly the problem. If it dosen't, then it might be the delivery assembly causing the jam.
You might be able to see where the jam is happening if you print something and watch it though the back to see where the paper catches and jams.

Make sure to clean all the rollers you can see and make sure to check the paper sensor, and clean all rollers and paper paths with some Isopropyl Alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol)

All error lights blinking and fan running but won't print...


Yes Mr. Guest and Mr SwT,

Replace the fuser assembly unit.

Definitely the fuser got problem. This can be confirm by pressing the Go button and only the Toner LED will light up.

What had happen was right after the power blackout the fuser has fused together both rollers (heating drum and rubber roller) where the paper pass through in between the rollers. Since there was a power blackout, the printer fan has stop functioning and the heat was unable to disperse out from the printer. Suggest to improve on design to disperse heat using aluminium cage in case of power blackout.

Who ever has a Brother HL-2040 should definitely use together with a UPS.
