Make sure there is not a piece of misfed paper in there. This happened to me and it took a while before I figured it out. Open the upper top and try to remove the toner. If it is stuck, more than likely there is a piece of paper stuck in there. Hope that helps.

The error light that is blinking is actually blinking out a error code. In the back of your manual under troubleshooting there should be a list.

On a printer this new about the only error you should see is a paper jam. IF anything else is wrong I'd just put it in the box and take it back. Rarely do you see something fail this new these days. It happens but not that much.

Once you look up the error code you will know what the problem is. It could be a cable unplugged or a paper jam etc. I can;t see it being serious.

Print want print


If you recently purchased it, just put it back in the box and take it back to the store for a replacement. I wouldn't bother tryng to fix it if you can get a brand new one that works the way it's supposed to.

HL2140 - DRUM REPLACED APPROX 3 WEEKS AGO, LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON


When you replace a drum in a brother machine you have to tell the machine it's a new drum. The instructions are on a sheet packed with the new drum. With the front door open you hold the panel button until all the lights flash on, then close the door and you're ready to print.

All error lights blinking and fan running but won't print...


Yes Mr. Guest and Mr SwT,

Replace the fuser assembly unit.

Definitely the fuser got problem. This can be confirm by pressing the Go button and only the Toner LED will light up.

What had happen was right after the power blackout the fuser has fused together both rollers (heating drum and rubber roller) where the paper pass through in between the rollers. Since there was a power blackout, the printer fan has stop functioning and the heat was unable to disperse out from the printer. Suggest to improve on design to disperse heat using aluminium cage in case of power blackout.

Who ever has a Brother HL-2040 should definitely use together with a UPS.
