Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Can someone please help me. There is no stuck paper in the printer, and paper in the relevant drawer thingy, but I cannot print. The red "paper" light stays on. I have tried less paper, more paper, switching everything off and on. Deleting all jobs and just printing one simple page. Nada! Please can someone give me advise? Thanks a ton.

Remove the paper tray. Lift the printer and you have to see paper feed roller it is rubber, just clean of dirt with cloth and alcohol or water.

Red LED keeps flashing


Hi

I've been stuck with a flashing red paper light for a while. The printer could print from the manual tray and could also print test or diagnostic pages.
So I thought it might be driver related, and indeed it was.
There's a nasty setting in the printer properties that makes the printer go woo-hoo. So go to printer properties > tray settings. Check the "paper size" of "Tray 1". If it's set to "undefined", change it to your corresponding paper format. Click Update, Apply. Now print happily.
I still wonder why that setting magically changed. Hope this helps someone.

My printer will not print. The red light comes


My printer will not print. The red light comes on, but there is no paper stuck anywhere. The toner light comes on, but when it did print yesterday, it looked fine. Please let me know what I need to check. Thank you,

I have cleared the genuine paper jam as per instructions. The 2575 will now not pick up paper, and keeps asking me to clear the jam - Help!


Got wife involved (I'm partially sighted).
She said "I don't know if it's relevant, but you've got a bit of paper stuck on one of those wheely thingies." (she's always been a bit too technical for me!).
Out came the tweezers, out came the chad, and onwards marched the printer!
Thanks to all concerned....

Won't print


ok, i just tried this and it works--

pull out paper drawer, in the back of the paper drawer there is a rectangular shaped blue button located just right of center. the symbol on it is a lock. this button can be pushed forward (away from you) or backwards (towards you), push it backwards towards you til it clicks in place.

return paper drawer and print.

this solved it for me-

hope this helps

Paper jam check drawer two t640 printer


Hello there,

If you are getting "Paper Jam check drawer two message" I would suggest you to check for any paper stuck inside the paper drawer two. If you don't see any paper jammed inside drawer two, you might also want to check out if its is stuck anywhere in the paper path. Removing the paper jam should fix the issue. Try cleaning the pick rollers (the rollers which pick the paper) in drawer two. This should help fixing this issue.

Merry Christmas!

Paper


then you have some buried deep inside..turn light off in office, close door, and use a flashlight or penlight..paper will glow from light..that will help a bit..then long tweezers to extract the fragments, eh?

My printer will not print


You have probably broken the Paper exit assembly, you can see this if you look into the slot the paper comes out off, study it carfully a roller might have been dislodged and should just pop back into place.

Printer problem


Samsung 4100 laser printer, scanner, copier

The paper gets stuck in the roller and is not drawn up to the drum. The beginning of the problem started when the paper was never pulled from the drawer. When I open the paper drawer after a Paper Jam error, the paper is bent backward but still detached. Now it is drawn in but sticks.....margoa
