Just got the following solution that worked for me:
1. Power Unit off

2. Open front cover

3. Press and hold GO and turn power on

4. When all 3 lights lit release and press GO twice

5. All lights turn solid

6. With all solid, press GO 5 times

7. Ready light GOes red

8. Close door and you're all set

I have a Brother HL-2040. The paper light is on, there is plenty of paper, not overfilled, no paper jams, and it still will not print.


That printer is kind of picky, make sure the paper cassette is all the way in, and also remove the toner and drum and look underneath. Sometimes paper scraps stick under the rollers and guides on the bottom.

How do you get the toner cartridge out of brother 2040? we have paper stuck under it


The toner and drum come out together, open the front door and pull the handle in the center straight out toward the front. The toner lifts off of the drum by pushing the blue lever on the right or left rear side and lift up and out. You need to inspect the underside of the toner and drum for paper scraps that could cause jams.

Paper led light wont stop flashing


Pull the tray out and make sure the back guide is pushed against the paper. The back guide tends to move easily on these models

Check for a piece of paper caught in the fuser section. Sometimes a small piece will wedge itself in. Vacuum out any residual toner that may be in the paper path.

Flashing red light - no paper jam


I had this problem and couldn't figure out until I opened the front, pulled out the toner cartridge and found a paper jam.  Removed it and now I have the green light.

Printer problem


hi, Take out the toner and check for a paper jam.turn the printer upside down and check under the paper tray for a jam. When you reset the printer check to see if the printer picks up the paper, if it tries to pick up the paper then the red light flashes you should rough up the roller on the front above the paper tray, the rollers sometimes get smooth and won't pick paper up. You should also look inside where the toner cartridge goes and there are some little plastic flaps.Check that these are not stopping the paper going it. hope this helps
