Check the following steps for fixing Brother Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed papaer out.

After clearing a paper jam, it now jams everytime I use it and crinkles the paper.


for this model, the drum unit have to be cleaned and free from dirt and toner.. and the common problem is the eject roller...they are located at the top of the printer, the long black roller with few hard rubber roller.. once this roller is harden, it will give paper jam problem..and the paper will crumble each time you print....especially when the printer have printed many pages... you will need to send it to the tech to replace the eject roller.

Brother HL-1440 LASER PRINTER requires ''Service Call A''.


currently, the error you have is not a service errorl, ready and alarm blink means that you have either a paper jam, no paper, or a paper misfeed.

do you get this error only when you try to print?
according to the service manual the lights can not alternate in blinking.

Have brother printer HL-1440 can't get red alarm off


Check the door on the back of your printer. Behind the 1st door is a second door which will pull open. Check to see if you have a paper jam behind that 2nd door. Often that is the problem and removing the back paper jam will clear the red light.

HL 2040 paper jam light is blinking but there is no jam. the printer sounds like it dies out everytime it tries to print.


Often the paper jam light will stay on when the *back* paper jam door is not cleared.

Open up the back of your printer. There is a 2nd door behind this door that you can pull open. If there is a paper in this section, pull it out and it should clear your red light.

When clearing paper jams, clear the front first, and then if the red light is still on, you need to check the back hidden door for another piece of paper.

Check paper alarm


There's most likely a paper jam. Open the door on the bak of the printer and check there first. If that is clean, remove the drum/cartridge assembly and check the front. You should find a piece of paper stuck in one of the two locations.

The alarm light is on and it won't print


Check the back of the printer. Open up the back door. There is a barely visible 2nd door which you need to open. Check to see if there is a paper jam behind this 2nd door. Often this is the problem and clearing this back paper jam will clear the red alarm light.
