Question about Brother DCP-7040 Laser Printer
Your problem: paper is jammed in the back of the printer around/in the fuser.
The Users Manual for your printer is located at:
You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader (free from www.adobe.com) to view it.
LOCATION:The fuser cover is located in the back - its covered by the panel in the back called
the "back cover" aka "back output tray cover".
(A) open the back cover - on the back of the printer.
HOW: it flips down
(B) open the fuser cover and remove paper jam
How: Pull the 2 tabs (one left and one right) toward you to open the fuser cover.
(it also flips down to open).
Most of this fix comes from downloading the Users Manual and blowing up page 60 (of 108 pages).

This can be caused by several things. Make sure there is no paper jam (the usual cause). If you are sure there is not one, then check the fuser cover, which is at the back of the printer. Open the door and make sure there is nothing blocking the door from closing. Close the door and the problem "should" disappear. If it doesn't, it could be a broken actuator, which would not allow the switch to register the door as closed (which I would hope is not the problem).
Hope this helps...
