Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.

This happened to me; I thought I'd cleared out the jam and got really frustrated - but it turned out there was a tiny bit of torn paper stuck in the print cartridge that I hadn't noticed. So, like everyone says, make sure you check everything out really carefully.

    Perhaps re-read her question: paper jam was cleared and error lights stayed on! Hence, not a paper jam problem but something else.

    I had the same problem, cleared all paper, blew it out, re-installed drivers, cleaned the toner drum, turned it off and on a dozen times, tried updating firmware (no luck) and tried using the manual paper feed.

    Contacted Brother and it's most likely to be that while removing the paper jam, static electricity hit the internal electrodes and has caused an electrical disruption. Hence, irreparable at home unless you're a computer technician.

    They advised the cost of repair would be greater than buying a new one. Sounds okay to me, but I just got new toner and don't want to waste it!

Besides your helpful
there are extra doing steps to make my printer back to normal:
- Remove completely the unit toner cartridge, check paper jammed in that unit
- open the basck lid of the printer , remove all paper jammed in that arrea
- Blow out the container inside of the printer, to blow away all paper depris and dust.

- re-install unnit toner, close back lid\re-strat printer like your suggestion
Many thanks
Have a Nice Day

You probably still have paper stuck somewhere. Sleep over it and take another look. Another thing to do is to take out the toner cartridge, take out the paper tray, put both of them back in, and press the big button under the flashing light. If it turns to green, you're done.

When I turn on the printer the light paper flashes


The paper light flashing because there is some paper inside the printer. Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and look inside for the jammed paper. Remove the jammed paper and insert the cartridge , closed the front cover and switch on the printer.
It will help you to solve the problem.

Check for a piece of paper caught in the fuser section. Sometimes a small piece will wedge itself in. Vacuum out any residual toner that may be in the paper path.
