Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

The printer light indicating that there is no paper in the machine keeps flashing even though there is plenty of paper in the unit. Is there some way to reset the printer? I have turned it off and on, waiting 30 seconds between each step. I have unplugged the unit and plugged it back in, using the same obligatory 30 second wait time in between. I am stuck!

Flashing light indicating there is a paper jam but NO paper jamming the printer.


There is more than likely a small, or small pieces of paper jammed somewhere within the unit. open up all covers and take a good thorough look with a flash light. even the smallest piece can trigger this error.

Why is my printer indicate a paper jam error even though thre's plenty of paper in it?


Because they is paper jammed inside it!
you need to remove the paper from inside the printer in order to make it work.

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?

Not printing


The red light, along with the paper light being lit indicates that it is having a problem feeding the paper OR it is set wrong for duplexing. Check your manual on page 3-4 or download a manual at:

I can't tell which of the error conditions fits your situation, but this should put you on the correct path to figure it out.

All four lights flashing indicated a problem only a service center can repair.

Press the Go button and a new set of indicators will appear.

The yellow toner light only indicates a fuser unit failure.
The yellow drum light only indicates a laser unit failure.
The yellow toner light AND the red paper light indicates a main motor failure.
The red paper light only indicates a PCB failure (Printed Circuit Board).

The only thing you can do at this point is to actually UNPLUG the power cord for 24 hours and then retry or if that fails take it to a service center or better yet go pay the $89 for a new unit.



Hope this helps.
