Question about Brother HL-2030 Laser Printer
My Brother HL-2030 won't work. All the 4 LED light are flashing. What to do?
Use the software to diagnose the problem or check for a paper jam and ensure the drum and toner is OK.

SOURCE: paper light flashes red...
I found just doing this one simple thing sorted the problem.
First take off the front cover. Pull the tabs on the side. Pull out the big toner and cartridge. Do you see the blue tab on the top shaped like an arrow/triangle? Slide the tab from right to left - reinsert toner close door.
Hope it works for you

Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.

Hi from what i have read on the internet and past experience with these printers (our company has 20 -30 of them) the fault is within the printer and requires a service call from brother.
if its still under warrenty i would suggest taking it back for a replacement if that is not possible but its still under warranty ring up brother in your country and get them to send out an engineer. we have just had another one of our printers start doing this after some routine maintance (we simply used compressed air cans to clean out any "rubbish where the toner / drum assembly goes) after that the printer is now flashing all 4 lights.
sorry i cannot be more positive about the problem but as mentioned its a fault within the printer that requires an engineer.

Open the front door, and press the go button until the lights flash, after closing, press the go button 3 times for a printout showing the drum as full again. The instructions come with the new drum...
