Error Code Printer is Flashing "L" then "1" then "L" again and "1". Toner is full, paper tray ready. This is not one of the codes posted on the printer for service to toner, paper, or drum. We can not find user manual. Anyone have any ideas what this code means?

L1 means the lamp is not moving from the home position.
Normally its just hitting the sensor bracket and being stalled.
You could have a broken scan cable. Or motor bad.
Open the document feeder and turn the machine on, see if the lamp tries to move, If it does the motor and cables are fine just hitting someting and not actuating the home sensor.
If it doesnt move, suspect the motor first, cable or pully problem then the main board.
If its not moving, I would try unplugging the machine, remove the glass and see if you can freely move the lamp carriage.

How to clear Paper Jams on your Printer


The flashing error code that indicates a jammed printer in the digital-age is equivalent to a flat tire. Sooner or later it happens to everyone, so you'd better know how to get things moving again if you want to finish your print job.

Difficulty:Moderate

Instructions

Step1
Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel displaying the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if you can identify the area of the printer where the jam occurred.

Step 2
Turn off the printer.

Step 3
Remove any paper trays. Inspect the printer thoroughly for wrinkled or damaged paper.

Step 4
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.

Step 5
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.

Step 6
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing.If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

Step 7
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't exert great force as it may cause the paper to tear again.

Step 8
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.


Step 9
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper jammed inside the printer. Inspect the paper path once again.

When i m on printer inittilizeing sound came but but any one light on and like hang dont work again,some times paper error light ,some time toner error light,


Hi there,
You can test the printer by three ways,
1. Press and hold Green button for atleast 5 seconds it will take out the configuration printer, also the toner status page will come too
2. If the toner light is on , check the current toner status from the test prints taken before,
3. if the Error light is on, make sure there is no paper jaming in the printer, remove any paper stucked on the tray side, as well as check by removing the toner also
One thing more you can check the configuration for the Printer tray selected in the system,
Remove the Printer Drivers from the computer and try installing the software again, sometimes if you have selected manual tray feeding, or you have selected Tray 1 as default Tray and there is no page in the Tray 1 it will also, gives you the error on printer, 2nd thing you can check is the Paper size, both in computer and on tray 2 in printer, you take out a tray from the printer and adjust the nob to A4 . if you are using this printer on network, you have to reinstall the drivers for the printer, and it should give you the print,

If you require more assistance, feel free to reply to this post,
Thanks for contacting FixYA!

If the paper light is flashing (not steady) please follow the steps bellow:

The Paper LED flashing can be caused by no paper in the manual feed slot, a paper jam, the front cover is open, the back cover is open, dust on the drum, a memory full error, a print overrun error or not having a drum installed.

Note: Be sure that a toner AND drum assembly is installed in the machinebefore continuing. A machine may exhibit a jam message if a drum or toner isn't installed or isn't installed properly. The drum is a separate part from the toner cartridge and the two parts fit together tomake the drum and toner assembly. The problem may also happen from using non-Brother supplies.

To clear the Paper LED flashing, follow the steps listed below:

Brother strongly recommends that customers use only genuine Brother drumunits and/or toner cartridges. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations. Each individual component is designed to work with the other to ensure quality and reliability. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print qualityand machine reliability. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of third party drum units, toner cartridges or toner.
Warning: If you just used the machine some parts inside the machine are extremely hot.

1. If the paper source setting of the program you are printing from or the Brother printer driver is set to Manual feed, the Paper LED will flash prompting you to load a sheet of paper, an envelope, or a label inthe manual feed slot of the printer. It can also be caused if the document you are trying to print was created as a letter, mailing, or label.

2. Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides on the front of the printer to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

3. Using both hands, put one piece of paper in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the printer pull in the paper, let go and the printer will print the document. If the Paper LED continues to flash and the printer does not pull in the paper, this issue was not caused by a manual feed command, continue with trouble shooting.

4. Open the front cover by pulling the tabs on the left and right side of the printer towards you.

5. Remove the drum/toner assembly by lifting it up slightly at the center and pulling it out to the front. Place the drum/toner assembly ona piece of disposable paper or cloth to avoid spilling and scattering the toner.

6. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab on the top from right to left and left to right several times. Return the blue tab and snap it into the home position. If you don't, printed pages may have a vertical stripe.

7. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit holding down the lock lever (purple tab) on the left side of the drum unit and lift the toner cartridge out.
*Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your and or clothes, immediately wipe it off wash it with cold water.

8. If there is paper in the drum unit, gently remove it.

9. Examine the inside of the printer where the drum was installed. If there is paper inside the printer carefully remove it.

10. Reset the toner cartridge into the drum unit (be sure it clicks into place).

11. Reinstall the drum/toner assembly into the printer.

12. Close the front cover. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

13. Turn the Brother printer around with the back of the printer facing you.

14. If the back cover is open, close it securely. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

15. Open the back cover.

16. Open the black plastic inner chute by pressing on the release tab located on the right side of the chute.
Note: The inner chute has a diagram on it of a piece of paper being removed from the printer.

17. If there is paper inside the printer carefully remove it.
NOTE: If paper is wrapped around the orange roller do not try and removeit. The printer has a one year limited exchange warranty. If the printeris in warranty, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-BROTHER (1-877-276-8437) for warranty options. If the printer is out of warranty, contact a Brother Authorized Service Center for repair by clicking on the link below:
http://www.brother-usa.com/service/default.aspx

18. Close the back cover. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.
NOTE: The inner chute will close automatically when the back door is closed.

19. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

20. If there is paper jammed in the paper tray or underneath the printer, gently remove it.

21. Reload the paper in the paper tray. The tray can hold up to 250 sheets of 20 lb paper. Do not over fill the tray. There is a maximum paper mark located on the top of the right and left paper guide. It looks like a V cut out in the plastic.

NOTE: If you are using special paper and the machine has problems feeding it from the paper tray, try loading the paper in the manual feed slot.

22. Put the paper tray firmly back into the printer. If the Paper LED isstill flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

23. To troubleshoot a Memory Full error, press the Go button on the printer to print the data remaining in the printer. Cancel the print jobif you want to delete the data remaining in the printer by pressing theGo button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. The Ready and Paper LEDs will flash as the job is being cancelled. If this does not clear the error, reduce the print resolution in the Brother printer driver or reduce the complexity of your document. If the Paper LED is still flashing, continue with trouble shooting.

24. To troubleshoot a Print Overrun error, set the page protection in the Brother printer driver to AUTO. Change the following settings in theprinter driver and try again. The best XXXXXXXXXXX XX these settings will vary depending on your document:
Graphics mode
TrueType mode
Use Printer TrueType Fonts

There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem

The red attention indicator light and the toner indicator light are both flashing together


ON your driver check that the paper size is correct and this most commonly occurs when the incorrect paper size is selected. For example if you are printing to A4 and you have letter size installed in the machine then the system will cause an error or jam when there is nothing there.

Also within word or which ever program you are using on the document goto file and then down to page setup once in there check the paper size make sure it's correct for the paper in your machine also check the paper source. Once you have done this check the paper tray guides are correctly against the paper turn on and try printing and hopefully this will work.
