    The red light flashes, and when I try to print, it starts then stops before the paper has gone through. The print command erases immediately.

If all else fails, as it did for me, try removing the paper tray and feeding a sheet through the manual feed slot. On the printer I was working on, the paper would feed only about an inch and stop. I swapped toner/drum cartridge with another printer and that fixed it. I installed a new cartridge and the printer now works fine. Apparently, the cartridge was jammed and very hard to turn.
Hope this helps.

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


Hello,

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.

Same prob as sphil4988 11 Sep09 - RED PAPER LIGHT REMAINS ON EVEN IF NO PAPER JAM, THERE'S PAPER ON TRAY, UNIT IS CLEAN. THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT.


Check the Paper Sensor if it is in the Upright position or broken off it will keep asking for paper
check that sensor.

Flashing red light - no paper jam


I had this problem and couldn't figure out until I opened the front, pulled out the toner cartridge and found a paper jam.  Removed it and now I have the green light.

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)

Brother 2040 all lights keep blinking


Just got the following solution that worked for me:
1. Power Unit off

2. Open front cover

3. Press and hold GO and turn power on

4. When all 3 lights lit release and press GO twice

5. All lights turn solid

6. With all solid, press GO 5 times

7. Ready light GOes red

8. Close door and you're all set
