Which tray is paper in? the MP tray is the manual bypass tray in front of machine. sounds like your software is setup to utilize the MP tray for the labels, which is the best thing to do.

Brother hl-3045 jam inside


Had the same problem, called help center and fixed it!!!
Problem occurred when i tried to print colour labels from Word.
Black cartridge printing worked fine.
When using manual feed (pull down black panel in front which says 'brother'- you'll get the message for this if printing labels
you must open the back door of the printer.
got 'paper jam inside' error message.

Here's what I did and somewhere along the way, something worked.

Turn and unplug machine
take out all drum cartridges (all 4)
Take out the black belt (everything you can remove has a green arrow or tab- easy)
check to see if there's any paper in there- there was no paper in my case.
separate the drum from the cartridge for each colour and check the colour roller and the fuser film roller- don't touch them- no paper stuck that i could see
put them back together carefully.
Put the belt in and then the 4 cartridges
do a test run- mine still showed error message- paper jam inside
switch black with each cartridge and do a test run for each. When i switched with yellow - didn't work, magenta- didn't work- cyan- WORKED!!!- the colours were messed up on the document but it went through and printed without the error message.
Here's the sequence of what colour cartridge went in which spot.
Yellow in black slot
magenta in yellow slot
cyan in magenta slot
black in cyan slot.
then i switched them back to the way they are supposed to be and tried to print again and it worked!
the colour is amazing on this printer- i had the trouble right from the beginning after installation.
hope this helps.

HL-5140 model. the paper light is flashing and


Hi Patricia,

Try to do a factory reset on the server.

Whilst the printer is turned off, press and hold the GO button as you plug the printer on to the socket. Notice that all lights on the printer will turn on as well. Continue pressing the go button until the light for the toner goes up and once its up, release the button. Next, hold down the Go button again until the "Yellow Status" light turns on once on, release the Go button. Wait for the printer to initialize and see if the error went away.

Hope this helps.

Yes you can print Address but to print that you have to use MS word, to create it first

Hp lj 2500 flashing yellow light


The yellow-print-cartridge
light is blinking, and the
printer stops printing.
 The print cartridge is
empty or missing.
 The printer cannot
detect the print
cartridge correctly.
1. Reinsert or replace the print cartridge.
2. If the print-cartridge light is still blinking but the
Attention light is not on, turn the printer off and
then back on.
3. If the problem persists, repeat the above steps
with yellow print cartridges until the error is
resolved.
4. If the problem persists, replace the printcartridge
E-label reader, which is located on the
pressure assembly of the print-cartridge
carousel.

Printer paused-unable to read


HI there,

1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.

Printer online then offline


My first solotution was to reinstall the printer as a new printer. But that is uncessary. The fix is as easy as changing the IP address the in Port.

The problem is the the IP address for your wirelss is not static. and when it changes, the printer does not recognize the new IP address. When this occurs. go the the printer folder ( in the control panel) and click on 'add new priter'. Then select 'add a network wirless printer . NO NEED TO INSTALL THE PRINTER...you just want to see the IP address.

Note the IP address.

GO to the printer, click on the right mouse and select 'properties'
Click on Port
You will see the current port already highlighted.
Click on ' configure port' and change the IP address under "printer name or IP address.
Click OK.
Problem solved

Good luck.
