Make sure your pickup roller clean.
If it's clean and still jams the problem is inside.

  1. Remove left cover (where the USB connection is located);
  2. Remove big black gear with a spring on it (you may need to unscrew the PCB that partially covers it);
  3. There is a clutch that sticks to the rubber pad behind this gear. You may put a piece of scotch tape towards to a rubber pad, so the plastic from clutch mechanism would'n stick anymore. http://www.phillycopiers.com/fix/hl-2040-2070-fix.jpg

    Make sure paper is lifted. After jam occurred remove the paper tray, press Go button and watch on the white gear located on the inner left side. If it spins the paper lifts. Then follow my next post.

My HL2140 would not pick paper from the paper tray hence making the red error led to be on after a print order is given.


Clean you printer with an air blower properly because it seems that there is an peice of paper stuck between the trays or just open all the trays and bring them out and clean tem and check for the paper stuck.

If that does not work then just update the drivers or if firmware of the printer is available then download that and update it.

Can i set the Brother HL-2140 to print double sided. I cannot find it ?


The Brother HL-2140 does not include duplex printing. The only option for double sided printing with this model is to print odd numbered pages, then manually replace the paper into the tray and print the even numbered pages in a second set.

My Brother HL-2140 Laser Printer prints horizontal lines (about 1/8-inch long) at right hand edge of paper. They are spaced at about 2.5 inches apart down the page. Help!


It is most likely that your Laser Unit is failing. It could also be dirt on the electrodes of the drum unit and machine body or the ground terminal on the paper tray is bent. It is best that you visit you local Brother Authorized Service Center for additional help.

Hl-2140 noises


For a possible fix to the Brother HL-2140 squeal/squeak/noise problem open the printer at the other side from the paper tray and toner cartridge door. You should see a little black roller rod along with some white wheels.

The noise may be coming from the contact between the wheels/rollers which pull paper toward the output tray on top after it has been printed.

Check and clean/wipe the wheels and black rod, especially in the center area. Hopefully the noise will now be reduced/eliminated.

Cheers, Stephen
