Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
I cleared a paper jam and now the red paper light is flsahing and when I press Ready, nothing happens.
I have solved the problem with a little help from several posts on Fixya.com. This appears to be a design flaw - b/c there are lots of other people compalining about this... Here are a few steps to take.
First, open the front cover. Pull the tabs on the side. Pull out the big toner and cartridge. Do you see the blue tab on the back? Slide the tab from right to left 3-4 times. Pull out the black cartridge and check for a paper jam. Replace the cartridge and toner and reinsert into the printer. Turn the printer on and see if the light goes on.
If that doesn't work try feeding several pages manually with the paper tray OUT!
Obvoiusly there is an issue with dust or something causing the printer to think there is a paper jam - when there isn't. The moral of the story - Brother Printers are cheap - you get what you pay for... ~Joe Negron

I have had the same problem, and finally got it resolved a minute ago. I had bought a toner replacement because mine was empty. I had done this once before and didn't realize that I had bought the toner and drum together. But this time it was just the toner. Silly me just took out the toner+drum unit and slid in the toner unit. Once I figured what I had done and put the new toner with the drum unit and slid it back in, everything was fine!
