Question about Brother HL-2030 Laser Printer
We had a paper jam in our Brother HL-2030 printer and the paper was completely wrapped around the red roll in the back of the printer. After we removed the paper the red light for paper, keeps blinking.
The user manual mentions that this indicates an open cover (not the case) or the drum needs to be cleaned. What I tried already as well and didn't help either.
What else can I try that could solve my problem?
1. Face the back of the printer. You may have to disconnect the cables. Just note their position for later reconnection. Open the rear cover.
2. Lower the forkish cover that is further in the back of the printer. It has a sticker on its left side.
3. There is a "finger" in the middle of the forkish cover that may not be in position. Note that there is on the mid-right side of it a tab, that has to be positioned to go down into the hole.
4. Close both covers and reconnect the wires if necessary.
5. It should now be working BS"D!!!

In my case the problem occured after there was a paper jam. After removing the jammed paper the red light of the paper kept blinking and turned on after a restart.
The solution was quite simple. On the drum (take it out), there is a small blue clip with an inprinted arrow on it. Just move this back and forward a couple of times across the drum and reinstall the drum and everything worked again (for me at least).

I followed your advice. The little finger at forkish was not alaigned properly. We re aligned it and it works fine.
