Yes Mr. Guest and Mr SwT,

Replace the fuser assembly unit.

Definitely the fuser got problem. This can be confirm by pressing the Go button and only the Toner LED will light up.

What had happen was right after the power blackout the fuser has fused together both rollers (heating drum and rubber roller) where the paper pass through in between the rollers. Since there was a power blackout, the printer fan has stop functioning and the heat was unable to disperse out from the printer. Suggest to improve on design to disperse heat using aluminium cage in case of power blackout.

Who ever has a Brother HL-2040 should definitely use together with a UPS.

Same thing happened to all printers in our office. They are all Brother HL-5240 and others. We turned them all on, let them sit. When they went into Sleep Mode, it cleared. Ran a test print, and they all work fine now.

The error light that is blinking is actually blinking out a error code. In the back of your manual under troubleshooting there should be a list.

On a printer this new about the only error you should see is a paper jam. IF anything else is wrong I'd just put it in the box and take it back. Rarely do you see something fail this new these days. It happens but not that much.

Once you look up the error code you will know what the problem is. It could be a cable unplugged or a paper jam etc. I can;t see it being serious.

Had a power outage for several hours. Power came back on but the printer came on with all lights blinking. Turned power off and back on but the same problem. What's happened, and what do I do?


Nearly all later printers have circuits that stay 'alive' even with the power turned off. Try pulling the AC plug overnight' this should clear most stored errors that may still be present.

If your product is in warranty then I recommend you to contact HP support to service or replace the unit. Otherwise perform the steps given below and verify the results.

  1. Turn on the unit.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
  3. Press and hold the # and 7 buttons simultaneously.
  4. While still holding down the # and 3 buttons, connect the power cord to the back of the unit.
  5. Continue holding the buttons until the Power button blinks.
  6. Follow the instructions that display on the unit to select the language settings.

Power went out and back on; now printer won't print


I had the same problem after a resent power outage. Here's what fixed mine.

Turn the power switch off.
Wait a 15-20 seconds
While holding the button on the front panel down turn the power switch on.
After the drum light comes on release the button wait then press the button again.
Turn the machine off then back on again and you should be back in business.

To prevent the problem in the future if you are not using the printer turn it off and if the power goes off while printing get the printer turned off before the power comes back.

The printer apear to be dead!


Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
  • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
  • The buttons help control the printer.
Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

  • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
  • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
  • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:


Black: 51645A

Color: C1823D,

If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.
