I had a similar problem. I noticed that the paper tension on the paper tray wasn't set correctly. Needs to be tight. Once corrected it worked fine.

Printer stops when printing should begin with red light in status


There is a few reasons that cause the status light to turn red, paper jam, paper empty, toner cartridge empty, cover open and waste toner cartridge full. The PC Smart panel utility should give you an exact fault condition. Hope this helps.

Phaser 6110 - red light on, not printing


Just had user with same problem. Printer status = paper jam but no paper in feed path therefore suspect paper pick up problem. Asked user to take out paper tray and turn paper in tray over. This solved problem.
So possible fix = turn paper over or try different paper.
If printer is old try cleaning pickup roller. My users printer had only done 227 pages.

New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up


My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!

I have exactly the same problem, which started a couple of weeks ago. Has nothing to do with my computer's driver because it makes no difference if you connect the printer to a network or computer. Besides there are more computers on my network and no one can print.

I had this problem. Try unplugging any usb connection to the computer, turn off, then turn on and then try a stand alone copy. It was my USB connection to the computer which had locked up the copier.
After this it was fine.

Get it cleaned in paper sensor area and check up the drivers as well as data cable which connects, the pc and printer. Change the data cable if necessary. Give me feedback so that may be some more help can be provided.
