Paper jam with Brother HL-2030 laser printer

Had a paper jam in my Brother HL-2030 laser printer and it has turned one or more of the rollers. So I need to resync the rollers as the RED paper LED is blinking and it won't print anything.
Any information on the procedure would be greatly appreciated.

Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.

Apparently my computer was stopped in the process of printing a document of several pages. When stopped the paper was mid-way. Can barely see part of sheet from front and nothing in back. Cannot move it by pulling on it. Do not want to tear it off completely. Can't locate my manual.

HL-2030 Continuous Paper Light Flashing.


i looked at the service manuals, there is not one for the hl-2030, however for the hl-2040 is indicates that the front cover or back cover door is open, check the back door and see if the sensor is moving freely.

Hi here is a link to the brother site with a breakdown of the led status lights.

There are quite a few reasons as to why the paper light is coming on.

the obvious ones are a paper jam, low paper or no paper or its expecting paper to be put into the manual feed on the front of the printer.

but there are a few less than obvious reasons as well according to brothers site.

hope this helps.

Paper JAm


There are three places to clear the jam: 1. Paper tray (remove it and feel inside, clear paper. 2.Open the front (above the manual feed slot) inside is the drum - remove that and the toner cartridge, if necessary. 3. On the back - open the rear chute. You should be able to remove the paper in one of those areas. See the Brother web site for complete pictures ans instructions. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000000/000026/faq000026_006.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2040_all&Cat=4
