Question about Printers & Copiers
I had the same problem and looked around for a paper jam, I had to actually take the toner cartridge out in order to see the paper jam, once I removed the jammed paper the printer worked just fine.

What worked for me was to clean the drumunit; take the toner out of the drum unit and clean between the plastic housing and the drum. Dust heaps up and presumably makes the toner rotate more difficult.
I just used a piece of folded paper and blew the rest out..

My red light flashing problem on my HL-2040 was caused bythe plastic horizontal rod out of alignment in the back of the printer. Steps:
1. Open the back cover. 2. Gently pull the tab toward to open the Rear Chute Cover (plasticflap) inside (page 78 of User's Manual). 3. Look closely at the bottom rod of the Rear Chute Cover tomake sure everything is aligned. The two"tabs" (one long and one very short) on this rod should fit right into theallocated slots. 4. If not, adjust the rod so the right end extension of therod will block the paper sensor when the chute cover is pushed in by the backcover. Hope this helps - I wasted hours trying to fix this problem.

I tried everything - all manners of pressing buttons in different
orders ("Hold down the Go, turn off the power, press Go 14 times - 2
slow, 12 fast - turn the power back on, etc.), I used the blue thing to
clean the corona wire, I quadruple checked for tiny paper jams, I used
a different weight paper, I made sure everything was seated
correctly. None of this helped.
As I was researching a new printer I decided to BLAST EVERYTHING WITH A CAN OF AIR. Printer is now working.
I know Brother says not to do it. This is not a one-size-fits-all solution. I just happen to have a lot of loose toner and dust floating around.

Open the front compartment to see if there is a paper jam. It could be out of paper. Or the paper rollers could be jammed, or immovable. What kind of printer is it? Laser or Ink-Jet, Thermal, ect?
