    From fooling around with the problem I found out if I press and hold the Go button until all lights stop flashing and only the green light is on, then when I hit print if I put in under Pages...1-1. It will print every time.

    I threw it out the window and bought a different printer.

    not feeding paper starts the process and the error light comes on.

Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!

Hit go 4 times to print out the print settings page.

on page four it will tell you the last 10 errors.

I'm a copier tech, I recommend cleaning the fead(must remove gear for feed on left side to spin feed to clean) and making sure the Drum unit is secured in nicely.

I have a HL-2070N printer and it would not print, the Paper light is red and blinking. Also, sometimes when it prints the pages get stuck half way out. Any solutions? Thank you.


Usually there is a sensor right before the paper enters the fuser. If the paper sensor is bad the machine will stop feeding and output the error paper jam. This is probably the cause if the paper stops in the same position all the time.

The error light is simply telling you that there is a paper jam. Open both the back panel (you should be seeing the orange roller clearly) and the front panel. Grab the handle and take out the toner and drum and check there are papers stucked. Chances are there will be.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Paper red light blinking. paper is full. What could be wrong? Will not print


Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.

There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

When I try to print from my brother2070 the red paper light keeps blinking but there is plenty of paper in the printer. What's the problem?


Is the paper pushed in all the way? Make sure the paper is firmly pushed into the paper tray, towards the printer.

Do you have too much paper loaded in the feeder? Reduce the paper to about 30 pages.

Hit the cancel button on your printer, or push the button next to the flashing light. If this does not work, power down your printer for 30 seconds. Now turn it on.

You should now be able to print.

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

Won't print


The printer might still be in manual feed mode. I just had the same problem and forgot that I had set it up to print on manual feed for a project. Try inserting a page in the feed slot and see if that helps.
