Any paper jam has to be cleared first but after it is clear, re-insert the paper tray, make sure all doors are closed then hold down the
"GO" button until only solid green shows.

Two red lights blinking


The flashing red light next to a page and bin indicates paper or a CD/DVD has jammed in the printer.

The flashing red light next to the drop indicates that the ink is low - if it is solid on then the ink is out.

Both of these lights flashing rapidly together means taht the print head carriage is obstructed by jammed paper or some other material and cannot return to the home position. Turn off the printer then open the paper support and the printer cover. Then remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path by hand / tweezers. Then, turn the printer back on and the fault should clear. If the lights are stioll flashing then check the paper path again and see if the print head carriage assembly is jammed by gently moving it very slightly along the carriage. Don't force this or do this too hard or too far as you can cause some damage to the drive

Red light stays on, but nothing moving after clearing paper jam


About the last post, I must also add that the main clue that led me to that conclusion, was the fact that, when I first turned the printer on, THE FAN BEGAN to rotate. Hence, I thought, all the other aspects were right, but somewhere there might be a mechanical "jamming" that stops either the fan or other part to move and obstacles the cylinders or gears from moving, hence sending the printer a signal of jamming. I had looked for the "messages" from the printer, and the diagnosis for our problem (red light in the online error, and green light in Toner Save) was that either there was no ink or no cartridge, no paper, or paper jamming (please post if there was other cause for this diagnosis). I discarded the other grounds, so the unique left was that the printer thought was that there was a paper jamming. This lead to the fix I described in my previous post.

Re: paper jam in brother laser printer hl 2040 : paper red ligh continue to flash


Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.

Canon s520


The number of orange flashes between green flashes indicates the type of error, as outlined below. Check the cause and take the appropriate action. Two flashes: Out of paper, paper jam or paper feed error Replace the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Three flashes: Paper jam If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button. Four flashes: Empty ink tank One of the ink tanks is empty. Replace it. If all of the above won't help, unplug the printer from the power cable, wait a while, and plug in. If that didn't fix you, I guess it's time to get in touch with canon, or a repair lab you trust. Good luck
