Got a paper jammed in my brother hl-2170w


Open the front cover of Printer, remove the drum and toner with force and put aside. Remove the jammed paper slowly so it doesnt rip. If you cannot find the jammed paper check in the back cover and paper tray.

My Brother HL 2170W printer has red error light on. It was printing something over and over and I wanted to stop it so I pulled (oh, no!) the paper out and then I guess the red error light went on. I...


There is probably still part of the sheet in the fuser at the back of the machine. The fuser will need to be removed and checked for scraps of paper and/or damage to the temperature sensor and v likely a dislodged paper sensor arm.

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!


When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

The drum light comes on and printer stops


The error that you are giving me, is that the drum needs to be replaced. Replace the drum, and follow instructions in the package to reset the counter.

thank you

Error Light on Brother HL-2170W


Do not try to depress the green lever, since you need to remove the cartridge AND its base altogether. Just grab the front middle part of the assembly, pull it out slowly and steadily. You may need to apply extra force in doing so as it does take some effort to disengage the cartridge assemly from its seated position.
After the cartridge is removed, you may find some jamed paper inside. simply remove it and the printer should work again.
You may email me at stevenjoy@gmail.com should you have further questions.
