Hi there!

for paper jam, dont simply pull the paper out of the printer, this will damage the feed mechanism of the printer. but if already did, just open up the cartridge door of the printer (also check on the duplexer at back if it has), check for paper tear, clean rollers if you can too. this is the manual for your printer aswell since you lost your copy:

Have you tried shutting it down completely? Also, double check to see if the inside of the printer is completely clean. I had the paper jam indicator showing because there a small piece of paper stuck inside. Also, found a helpful manual for a similar printer, you can see it here - Brother HL-2240 manual

Brother Printer HL 2142- has paper jam


If a paper jam occurs when using the optional lower tray unit, check for correct installation of the upper paper tray.

Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and reduces paper jams.

How do I unjam paper in HL 2142


You open your printer (use your manual to correctly do this)

check all paper paths to see if any paper is stuck

Next take out the toner and drum and check again for any stray scraps of paper that may have been stuck there.

Also open the paper tray and look inside there to see if anything is stuck there.

If your printer has a single sheet tray check there too

If your printer has a back opening, check there too

I recomend that you also purchase "paper path cleaning sheets" to keep the unit clean and paper jam free (once a week if you print constantly and twice a month if a casual user)

NEVER NEVER NEVER get mad and RIP out stuck paper. Such an action will break internal mechanisms inside your laser printer.

Hope this helps Have a great day
