Hi,

I do understand that you have got the piece of paper removed from the printer. Even after this when its still showing the same error it's for sure that there is some more bits strangled inside. Please remove the toner and then check or clean the printer thoroughly. Also remove and straighten the papers that are there in the stack.

Hope you have the manual for the same to understand how to clean the printer. I am posting the manual for your reference:

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

Won't print. Alarm says it's out of paper, but that is not the case.


Hi
Turn it off and on.
Check through the paper paths and clear any paper jam.
Try disconnecting the printer.
Leave it for like 2 hours and then connect it again.

The alarm light is on and it won't print


Check the back of the printer. Open up the back door. There is a barely visible 2nd door which you need to open. Check to see if there is a paper jam behind this 2nd door. Often this is the problem and clearing this back paper jam will clear the red alarm light.

Re: paper jam in brother laser printer hl 2040 : paper red ligh continue to flash


Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.
