E 2 ?

The printer won't print and is blinking E 2 over and over, and the only troubleshooting tip in my manual is for a paper jam (E 3). Does anyone know what E 2 means?

I believe that E2 is "Out of paper". There could be something wrong with your paper sensor, because with this error, the printer will not even feed paper that exists in the tray.

Remove the paper, open the printer, and try cleaning the sensor pads. Use canned air, or a cotton swab damped with water.

What does the button on the the 1320n that has a triangle with an exclamation mark mean? The light next to it is blinking and we don't have a manual.


Attention light is blinking
This state can be reached in the following circumstances:
? Paper tray is empty
? Door open
? Paper jam
? Misfeed from tray
1. Verify that the print cartridge is present and that the print-cartridge door is closed correctly.
2. Verify that media is present in the input tray.
3. Clear any jams and perform paper-path functional checks.
4. Make sure that the interlocks are operating correctly.
To reset the printer after a jam, press the GO button.(Green Button)

I have error light on. Computer won't print. I just bought the printer and it printed just fine twice. Then I turned off the power when I did not use it. When I tried to print again. the error light is...


The error light that is blinking is actually blinking out a error code. In the back of your manual under troubleshooting there should be a list.

On a printer this new about the only error you should see is a paper jam. IF anything else is wrong I'd just put it in the box and take it back. Rarely do you see something fail this new these days. It happens but not that much.

Once you look up the error code you will know what the problem is. It could be a cable unplugged or a paper jam etc. I can;t see it being serious.

Carefully remove the paper if it does not automatically eject.

How to stop red blinking "paper"? couldn't stop


There is probably a paper jam since you shut it off as it was printing. Turn off the printer. Remove the tray and look inside. Remove any sheets of paper you see. Open the back of the printer (the pass-thru door) and remove any paper you see. Turn on the printer. If that fails, check the blink status against the manual's troubleshooting guide to locate a different solution.

Machine has an error code & won't print. We have no manual.


If the lamp is on solid that is a cancel job or reset printer indicator
If the lamp is blinking (flashing) that is the secondary Jam error meaning somewhere in the paper path is a jam. The lamp shoul dbe blinking in a sequense - that sequence indicates what are of the printer the jam is. So the lamp should blink a number of times, pause then blink the same number again.

1 blink - jam in feeder sensor
2 blink - jam in manual feed
3 blink - jam under toner
4 blink - jam in output are
5 blink - jam in tray 1
6 blink - jam in tray 2 (if present/option)

Brother printer problem


Manual Feed Command.
1. Press the Job Cancel button to cancel the print job. Delete the print
job in the print queue on the computer. You can quickly access the print queue by double clicking the Printer icon in the task
tray or dock.

2. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.
Check that the front cover is closed.

3. Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button
until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

4. Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.

5. Press the GO button 8 times. The green Status LED will flash briefly
while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Status LED
will be lit green.

6. Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times. If
the Print Settings pages do not print and the Paper LED is on again skip
to the next section - No Paper in the Paper Cassette.

If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing
from your computer. The Paper Source of the Brother printer driver or
program you are printing from may be set to MP Tray or Manual, instead
of Auto Select, Tray 1, or Tray 2 (if the optional paper tray is
installed). To check the Paper Source setting of most programs, click
File and Page Setup or Page Layout. You may need to click the Paper
Source tab or Paper tab depending on your software application. Verify
that in the Paper Source section does not list MP Tray or Manual. Choose
Auto Select, or another relevant source such as Tray 1. Click OK. Try printing the document again.


No paper in the paper cassette.
1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

2. Insert the letter or legal size paper into the paper tray with the
top edge of the paper first and the print side down. Make sure that the
paper is flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. If using a
paper size other than letter or legal, the paper should be loaded in the
MP Tray. The MP Tray can print on paper from 2.75 in. by 4.57 in. up to8.5 in. by 16 in.

3. While pressing the blue paper-guide release lever, slide the paper
guides to fit the paper size. Make sure that the guides are firmly in
the slots. For legal size paper, press the lever located at the back of
the tray and pull out of the back of the open tray.

4. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer. Press the GO
button. If the alarm clears, no further troubleshooting is needed. If
the alarm continues, follow the steps below.


Paper Jam at Paper Pick-up.
1. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.

2. Remove the paper cassette from the printer.

3. Elevate the front of the printer slightly to locate the jammed
paper.

4. Gently remove the jammed paper.

5. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer.

6. Turn the printer power switch ON. If the alarm clears, no further
troubleshooting is needed.

Everytime I try to print to my PIXMA 9000 I get an error from the print spooler that the printer is not responding. THe print job starts to print, stalls after a few lines.


1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

OR=

1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be looking for paper in another tray.
2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.
