Suggest you see the on-line manual (you may have downloaded it to your pc also as I did). It shows that you can open up the front and the back. If that isn't good enough...
1) if it is wrapped on the back, orange, roller, hold down on the blue 'tabs/levers' on either side of the orange roller to release the pressure so that you can pull it out.
2) you can pull out the toner and look in there (remember to press down on the blue 'tab/lever' before you pull the toner out by grasping it in the middle - the paper may be easier to see/reach that way.

Brand: Brother Model: HL-2040 Problem: cannot print, paper error, red light blink, did not feed paper. What should i do? thanks.


pull tray out load a couple sheets look underneath and see if paper is lifted up when closing paper drawer. If the paper is not raised to the up position you have broken the tray lift mechanism and it is not worth fixing. You can jam an eraser underneath the tray to manually raise the tray to do a dodgy fix.

I have a Brother HL-2040. The "paper light is on & won't print.


Hi,
Sounds like a paper jam. There's a flap at the back of the printer-once open you should be able to see if the paper is stuck there. (Exactly the problem I had yesterday-I didn't spot it at first and it nearly drove me mad! :)
Good luck,
Raf

How do you get the toner cartridge out of brother 2040? we have paper stuck under it


The toner and drum come out together, open the front door and pull the handle in the center straight out toward the front. The toner lifts off of the drum by pushing the blue lever on the right or left rear side and lift up and out. You need to inspect the underside of the toner and drum for paper scraps that could cause jams.

Printer paper is stuck in printer


There is a door at the back of your printer. Open it. Now there is a lever on the side which releases a second door. (It swings open from the top back.) Once open, you should be able to remove the remaining bit of paper.

(BTDT, had to figure it out the hard way.)
