I just had the same problem a few minutes ago. Take out the toner and open the flap in the back. Make sure there is no paper in the unit. This resolved my issue. Look closely as the paper hidden may look like part of the printer itself...

I have a Brother model HL-2040. The printer was working fine. I put some additional paper in it and clicked print and all the lights started flashing. I looked for a paper in the printer wrong and...


Hi there,
Red paper light is on means that there is no paper fed in the machine. Follow the steps below to clear this issue:
- First remove the paper tray from the machine. - Then remove all the paper from the tray. - Fan the paper well or run your fingers through the edges of the paper. - Adjust the paper guides of the tray. - Then reload the paper back to the paper tray. - Put the paper tray back to the machine. - Lastly press the go/blue button.
Printer should print the document.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

The paper light is flashing. The tray has paper, there is no paper jam. I check everything, put tray back in, press go and after a few seconds, there is a click noise and it starts flashing. What do I do?


The light flashing may mean more things, not just a paper jam. Could mean any of the following:
- Front cover is open: Close the front cover of the printer.
- Back cover is open: Close the back cover of the printer.
- Paper jam: Clear the paper jam. To see paper jams and how to clear them, click here. If the printer does not start printing, press the Go button.
- No paper fed manual feed slot: Put the paper back in the manual feed slot.
- Memory full: The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, click here.
- Print overrun: A print overrun occurred and the printer cannot print full pages of a document. To solve this problem, go here.
- Drum Error: The corona wire needs to be cleaned. To see how to clean the corona wire, click here.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Printer does not attempt to pick up paper but gives out of paper message and or flashing paper sign on panel


steps:
(a) driving a pickup roller, picking up printing paper stacked in a paper cassette, and then, feeding the picked up printing paper to an image forming unit
(b) after picking up the printing paper in step (a), checking to determine whether or not the printing paper has been fed to the image forming unit(c) when it has been determined in step (b) that the printing paper has not been fed and a paper feed error has been generated, again driving the pickup roller, so as to attempt to pick up the printing paper stacked in the paper cassette again.

Hp Deskjet F4480 continually reads out of paper even though its not and will not print. This problem occured only after I refilled the cartridges and put them back in.


Ok, I had this problem too and it started after I replaced the ink cartrtidges. The printer had a flashing light and the software read "out of paper". I can't be exactly sure what fixed it but here's what I did: I unplugged the printer while it was still on and left it unplugged for several hours (several minutes should have the same effect of clearing the device's memory, I just had to go to a meeting). I then plugged it back in and the printer fed the paper, but was feeding it sideways. I removed that paper and put a single piece of 4x6 photo paper in it and it fed that paper sideways also, crinkling it up. I tried a few more times by hitting the 'Cancel' button which would cause it to try to refeed the paper. I then checked the back of the printer and discovered the back panel had come loose at some point. I replaced it and the printer then fed a sheet correctly and printed the alignment page. I think the thing that fixed the issue was leaving the machine unplugged for awhile.

Paper pic-up


The first thing I would try is to clean the paper feed rollers:

1) Remove the paper and power on the printer
2) Press and hold the <Resume/Cancel> button until the power lamp flashes three (3) times, then release
3) Cleaning will start automatically
4) Wait approx. 30 seconds for cleaning to complete
5) When the power lamp lights, repeat #2 above

I suggest repeating #2 at least 5 times. Then you are ready to see if a single sheet of plain paper will feed.

1) Load a single 8.5 x 11 plain sheet of paper
2) Press and hold <Resume/Cancel> button until power lamp flashes three (3) times, then release
3) The paper should be picked up and fed through the printer.

You may wish to repeat this process as well (#1 and #2 above) to insure the paper is being picked up to your satisfaction.

Won't photocopy / warning light flashing /


The paper feed system is worn (rollers, and separation pad). What is happening, is extra sheets are being fed into the machine primarily because the separation unit is not doing it's job properly. So rather than just one page at a time being fed, it is allowing an extra sheet to "creep" in intermittently, causing the jam. And the indicator you are seeing is the "jam" indicator.

Images coming out crooked when in copy mode. A hardware problem?


Ensure the guide for the plain paper onto which the image is printed, are pushed up fully. It is possible that the paper is being fed into the paper feed path at an angle if the guides are nut pushed up.
