    Only with PDF files, the printer stops midway and notifies of a jam.

    I have the same problem. My computer says that it is printing. Then the printer jams and won't print any pdf files. This is only when printing pdf files.

I had this problem after I had fixed a problem printing from Quicken. I was able to print from Quicken by changing the print option in Windows -- mine was set to "Spool documents" and I changed it to "Print directly from printer" -- the advice I was given was to change it from whatever it was set at to the other option. For printing a PDF file, I changed it back to "Spool documents" and it allowed me to print the PDF file. Try this and see if it works for you -- click the Windows Start button and select Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Right click on the selected printer and select Properties. In the properties window look for a setting to print directly to printer or spool documents -- mine was under the Advanced option. Try the option not currently selected -- in my case, I changed it back to Spool documents with Begin printing immediately -- and then try to print a PDF file. It looks like I will have to toggle back and forth when I am printing from Quicken and when I am printing a PDF file. Hope this works for you.

When printing color the paper jams. This does not happen when printing black. How do I stop it from jamming when printing color.


Is that true for both print and copy job ?
Where does the jam happen ?

I am thinking if it is at the paper pickup roller area just as the job starts to print and not midway while printing, check the paper quality; dirty pickup roller; clean cork pad and try job from another tray

How to Cancel Printing in a Brother HL-2135W printer


Start by pulling the paper tray out to stop further pages being printed without jamming the printer up.

Then go onto your print queue on your computer and delete the job that is printing 50 pages.

If it dissapears then put the paper tray back in and it may print out the last page or two that were in the printer buffer.

If it does not dissapear from the print queue then turn the printer off and try to delete the job again.

Once you have ordered the job deleted then you can turn your printer back on and put the paper tray back in and allow it to continue. It should only print out the last page or two and then the job will dissapear

How to stop printing once it has started


For Brother Laser Machines. Start by pulling the paper tray out a little. This allows the page that is currently feeding through the system the chance to get through without jamming causing a whole slew of other problems.

Once the printer has stopped trying to feed the pages through coming up with an error saying paper out then you can look at deleting all the print jobs in the print queue on your computer. All but the one currently being printed should disappear when you delete them. The one that is left will be errored.

Then turn your printer off for 30 seconds closing the paper tray and try to delete that last job from the queue.

If it will not go then turn your printer back on and let the last couple of pages print out. these are pages that are stuck in the system. If the print job did disappear then just turn on your printer as normal and it should be clear of any jammed printing and you don't end up with Paper Jams in the printer to clear.

How to Stop Printing while it is Printing ?


Start by pulling the paper tray out. This will cause the printer to finish the page it was on when it was interrupted rather than paper jam somewhere in the machine.

Once you have interrupted the print job this way then you can cancel the print job from the PC and then once that has been done turn the Printer off for a few minutes to clear the memory buffer.

Turn it back on and it should be cleared.

Paper jams after printing 1/3 page. continue s to print on on wrinkled paper until file is totally printed


The rollers need cleaning. Office supply stores carry cleaning paper. It's sticky on both sides. Run it thru without printing on it. That should fix it.

My Brother HL-2040 paper led light won't stop flashing, the paper's not jammed or anything, I just put in a new toner, too. I tried doing what someone else said about opening the cover and holding Go until...


Hi. The reasons listed in the manual that cause the LED to flash normally are:

Front cover is open
Close the front cover of the printer.
Back cover is open
Close the back cover of the printer.
Paper jam
Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 6-5.
If the printer does not start printing, press the Go button.
No paper fed manual feed slot
Put the paper in the manual feed slot. See Printing on plain paper, bond paper
or transparencies from the manual feed slot on page 1-10 or Printing on thick
paper, labels and envelopes from the manual feed slot on page 1-13.
Memory full
The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a
document. See Solving print problems on page 6-15.
Print overrun
A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.
See Solving print problems on page 6-15.
Drum Error
The corona wire needs to be cleaned. See Cleaning the corona wire on page 5-14.

If you check out page 6-5 it tells how to clear the paper jam from the rear of the machine! A point often missed.

Check out the website below if you don’t have a copy of the instruction manual =

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002089/US_Eur.pdf

If all else fails, try a reset of the printer Drum & Page counter:
  1. With printer tuned on.
  2. Press and hold the “internal button” behind front cover, until all LEDs illuminate.
  3. Make sure Drum light is off, then release and close front cover.
Hope some of this helps………..Please post a response back here and let us all know if it works?............Regards, Cornwellnet (UK)

Fixed a paper jam, printer started to print one line


When the printer jamed and you had to pull out the jam, the data being tranfered for that job got out of sequence. On Deskjets when that happens, you need to go to the print spooler and delete the job it is printing or you will have the same problem evertime.

Lexmark x1240 printer will not print.


Keep your paper feed under 15 pages. The paper will tend to pull to the right, but it will print correctly on the printed page. 20 to 25 pages in the feeder will result in a paper jam. To find the status on the print job, go to your control conter and hit printers. Choose your spicific printer and you may beable to save the printjob.

MP810 paper jam


I bought a brand new canon with my first pc years ago and it was the first and last ia m afraid, it worked for two...yes two...print jobs, i had it a wee k then it just stopped and said a jam, but it turned out to be the paer sensor. Brand new and they had to swap it. Seems a big fault with these. However, the next one seemed to be ok, but i had occasional cartridge issues. I have never had an ounce of trouble with my lexmark apart from alittle toddler paperjam!!!
