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

SOURCE: Paper jam with Brother HL-2030 laser printer

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.

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!


When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

HL-2030 Continuous Paper Light Flashing.


i looked at the service manuals, there is not one for the hl-2030, however for the hl-2040 is indicates that the front cover or back cover door is open, check the back door and see if the sensor is moving freely.

Hi here is a link to the brother site with a breakdown of the led status lights.

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/gb/en/faq/faq/000000/000100/000070/faq000170_005.html?reg=eu&c=gb&lang=en&prod=hl2030_all&Cat=6

There are quite a few reasons as to why the paper light is coming on.

the obvious ones are a paper jam, low paper or no paper or its expecting paper to be put into the manual feed on the front of the printer.

but there are a few less than obvious reasons as well according to brothers site.

hope this helps.

Printer drum light on


Have you already replaced the drum? If you have not replaced the drum that may be why you are getting smudges. If you have already replaced the drum, here is the reset procedure. The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one. The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below: Open the front cover of the printer. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button. Close the front cover. CautionReset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.Related Models HL-2030, HL-2030R, HL-2040, HL-2040R, HL-2070N, HL-2070NR http://www.tonerovernight.com
