    Printer was printing. Now it only flashes two red lights and will not print. Tried to replace the paper and tried to shut down the printer and computer and turn everything on again and the printer still only blinks red lights. There is no paper stuck anywhere. Tried to press the go button but that does not work. Tried to shut off the "off" button on the side of the printer and when on again only blinking red lights. When th printer first starts up the green "go" button first lights but then stops and red lights blink. Thanks

Found paper fanfolded in back, over the drum. Removed paper, still not consistently feeding through but at least I know where the hang up is.

Brother HL 5150D not printing unless I keep pressing Go


its not the problem of toner cartridge.its the problem of gears which pulls the paper they r worn out or may be cracked internally.exactly what happens when you u give the print for the first time the printer gets command and the gears starts spinning and the paper gets pulled because it gets a pressure internally and after 2 pages that pressure gets low and it stops pulling the paper.some times changing the paper thickness solves the problem temporvarily .i mean use the thick quality paper instead of thin.

Paper feeding halfway through then stops


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

Not printing, making me crazy


A paper jam has occurred. To solve the
problem, see “Clearing Paper Jams” on
page 6.3.
• The front or top cover is opened. Close the
front or top cover.
• There is no paper in the tray. Load paper
in the tray.
• The waste toner container is not
installed or full. Check the container.
• Your system has some problems. If this
problem occurs, contact your service
representative.
  • Also i can indicate that the Toner Cartridges are empty and need replaced with Genuine Samsung Cartridges

hi!

Try to cancel your document in the printers menu even if you restart the pc or the printers memory stores the previous command.

1.The idea is that printers has its own memory unless you cancel the document that you print.

e-mail me at wendel_tenebroso@yahoo.com if the problem persist

Paper jammed


I had exactly the same problem, printer virtually new, printed great for a couple of weeks, then today refused to take paper with E3 flashing. No apparent blockage - all looked clean, tried all the utilities, roller cleaning and plate cleaning, but wouldn't take paper!
Solved it by moving the paper size guide all the way to the left, then folding the top 20mm of a sheet of A4 over and loading it so fold is at the top facing you. This acts as a catcher for anything stuck in the printer. Hold the paper slightly crooked with the left side slightly further into the printer and press the copy button (with nothing in the scanner!). It should draw the paper in now (with some persuasion) and think it is printing (it's blank,of course). Check as the top of the sheet goes in that the fold is still tight and doesn't open up as it feeds in. Lo and behold, mine brought out a 5p piece - printer now prints perfectly!

You may have a subtle electronic flaw with the printer which requires a trained eye to solve. Call in an expert or visit an electronics dept.
