Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

Paper LED Blinking

The paper led is blinking on my printer. I checked for paper jams. I have none. In fact, I went through the trouble-shooting list on the following Brother website: http://www.brother-usa.com/FAQs/Solution.aspx?FAQID=100000001324&Sympt=The+Paper+LED+is+flashing.++How+can+I+clear+this+error%3f&Model=3&ProductGroup=1&Keyword=feed%20roller&ProductID=HL2040

    On occasion, the machine will print the odd page, but normally, when one attempts to print a document, the rollers will revolve, no paper will come out and the paper light will come on. A friend, who knows a great deal about computers, tipped it on its left side, and it then worked for a few minutes. Now it is upright again, and doing the same thing.

    Brother laser printer HL-2030. Paper led red light continues to blink after paper jam. Pulled out jam and filled paper tray. Paper red light continues to blink. Normal Brother trouble shooting pages unavailable. Printer is about 3 months old and have only printed about 30 pages.

The amber lights are blinking next to the printer icons and exclamation points on top of the printer. How do i get that to stop so my print job can go through?


There 3 light on the printer that able to indicate to user when problem occur.

1st button light blink rapidly = the printer may be out of paper, so load more paper and press the 1st button itself to continue. Or may be paper jam is occur, so clear the paper jam and press the 1st button light itself to continue.

If 1st button light blink slowly = mean the cartridge carriers are stuck, so raise the scanner unit and remove any object blocking the path of the cartridge carrier, make sure the cartridge are closed and installed properly, then lift the scanner unit, gently push the scanner support towards the cartridge carriers, and carefully lower the scanner unit until it is completely closed. After that press the 1st button itself to continue.

If 2nd LED light blinking = the color cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 2nd LED light is ON = the color cartridge need to be replaced immediately.

If 3rd LED light blinking = the black cartridge need to be replaced soon.

If 3rd LED light is ON = the black cartridge need to be replaced immediately.
