Probably the way to go is to remove the toner and tray 2. lay down a bunch of newspapers on the floor (not a rug). The printer is unplugged at this point. Turn the printer over and lay it down. Take a sheet of paper and fold it lengthwise in quarters. Manually feed the folded paper into the paper path from the bottom. Push and pull the paper thru the paper path. The object is to push the small piece out where you can reach it.
It's not the easiest thing to explain. You always want to go in the direction that the paper moves thru the printer. This is why you start feeding from the bottom. You know that there is a piece of plastic that is above the feed roller for tray 1 that you can pull out to give you more room.
The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.
Instructions Things You'll Need:
* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360) * Paper towel or scrap paper
Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.
Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.
Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.
Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.
Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.
Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.
Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.
Clear the jammed paper as follows. Observe Cautions signs in printer.
Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and prevents paper jams. 1.Press the cover release button and then open the front cover. 2.Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. The jammed paper will be pulled out with the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. 3.Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer. 4.Close the front cover. 5.Pull the jammed paper up and out of the printer. 6.Open the front cover again. 7.Open the back cover. 8.Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1). 9.Using both hands, gently pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit. 10.Close the back cover. 11.Pull the duplex tray completely out of the printer. 12.Pull the the jammed paper out of the printer or the duplex tray. Put the duplex tray back in the printer. 13.Push down the blue lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Clear the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit. 14.Put the toner cartridge back into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put the cartridge in properly, the blue lock lever will lift automatically. 15.Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer. 16.Put the paper tray firmly back in the printer. 17.Close the front cover. 18.Make sure that the Paper LED is now off and the printer is ready.
After clearing paper jam if noise persist printer may need a Repair Tech and parts replacement for broken or wore parts.
I also have the ML-2010R and I also had the paper feed problem. with warnings about paper jam around toner cartridge.
After a bit of reading and people mentioning the big roller that picks up the sheet of paper and that it needs replacement; I decided to carefully try to clean that rubber roller.
I used a brush and medical alcohol to clean the roller. After letting the roller dry I put in some paper and tried to print again and for me it works like a charm!
the first thing to chage the rubber at feeding whell which u did.another if u take out the the whole cartrige container, on the big green wheel some small wheels rolling and the might get black stiket thing on in it. Try to clean that as whell. the best thing to give quick cleaning service to whole printer, which will hardly take an hour.And will definitly work. if u got any prolem let me know
99 times out of 100 this problem is due to a dirty "paper kicker". The material they use is not a very good grade and it picks up dust and paper debris very quickly. Fortunately, it is very easy to clean.
Remove all paper from the feed tray. Open the front door and remove the toner cartridge and the envelope/bypass feeder tray. Look inside the paper feed housing - at the back - dead center. You will see a black roller-type mechanism that looks like it's made of a hard rubber material. This is the thing that needs to be cleaned.
Take a non-paper cloth (no paper towels, tissues, cotton balls, etc.) and dampen it with an extremely diluted cleaner (dish soap works great, just don't use anything with alcohol in it). Mix a little bit of the cleaner with a lot of water, then dampen the cloth. Another thing that works great for this is a pre-moistened cleaning cloth (e.g. Lysol wipes, Clorox wipes, etc.).
Reach back in the housing and wipe down the black roller mechanism a few times. You don't need to scrub it harshly, just use firm pressure to get a good rub down. Rinse your cloth thoroughly with water, squeeze out the excess, and wipe down the roller again to remove any residual cleaner. Now use another dry cloth to remove any excess water.
That should do it. Put the feed tray and toner cartridge back in the unit, load it with paper, and start printing again. Periodic cleaning of the pickup roller should keep your printing working well.
I just finished fixing my ml-2510 with the identical problem. you can take the pick up rubber and its housing off without removing the shaft. after taking off the front panel and taking out the upper paper tray and the toner you have lots of room to get your hands in there (make sure it's unplugged before you start). two plastic side supports hold the rubber housing in. lift the tab on one and slide it to the side. the housing will now come out . take note of the positioning of all these parts before taking them apart. I sometimes use a digital camera for this purpose. the housing snaps apart and the rubber band slides off. I turned it inside out and put everything back together. works great now (for another year I hope). It's not difficult, it took me about 30 minutes, but be gentle with these plastic parts. I needed a small flat head screw driver and a good lamp. the easiest way is to stand the printer up on its back and reach down inside the hole with the lamp set up over top. good luck.hope this helps.
Open the front of the printer by pulling on both tabs at the finger grips on both sides of the front panel. The front panel will flip down. The drum and toner cartridge comes out as a single unit. It is black plastic within gray plastic and has a handle like grip in the middle. Grasp this grip and pull the unit up and out. It feels kinda funny the first time you do it and you may feel like it will break, but it won't. Pull it up and out in a kinda circular arc. Do not touch the drum. If you ever need to replace the toner cartridge, press on the blue tap and separate the drum from the toner cartridge. You will have to replace the drum after every five toner cartridge replacements so practice doing it now. Note the tabs and slots on the sides before separating the drum and cartridge. Align the cartridge into the drum carriage and slide it in until it clicks. To replace the cartridge assembly into the printer, angle the cartridge at about 45 degrees and rotate in while pushing. It should click into place. If the front door then closes properly, you should have it in properly. Practice a few times and you should be an expert.
For paper jams, there are many places to check and they may not all give warnings. First pull out the paper tray and check for and remove misfeeds. Remove the drum cartridge assembly and described here and check for and remove any paper. Open the back cover and check for and remove any paper. Open the automatic feed and check there as well as lifting the cover where the scanning surface is. Look in the rollers for the automatic feed for paper pieces. The last place almost never gives you a warning. Reach into the slot where the paper exits after being printed and grasp the whole top cover. Lift upward and it will open about 4 inches. This is a good place where small pieces of paper or even whole sheets may get stuck. Clean out any dust while you are there.
