Printer light says paper jam but cannot find it. Almost have the whole printer torn apart and cannot figure it out. I copy the light comes on and paper only feeds in about 1/4 way. Then a real paper jam....

Did you remove the strip from the toner cartridge before you installed it? There should have been a tab to pull out a strip that looks like a long piece of tape. This prevents the toner from spilling out during shipping. It must be removed prior to use.

Paper Jam lite is on ( no paper jam )

give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Hl 2040 laser printer

Check for a piece of paper caught in the fuser section. Sometimes a small piece will wedge itself in. Vacuum out any residual toner that may be in the paper path.

Flashing red light - no paper jam

I had this problem and couldn't figure out until I opened the front, pulled out the toner cartridge and found a paper jam.  Removed it and now I have the green light.

Paper JAm

There are three places to clear the jam: 1. Paper tray (remove it and feel inside, clear paper. 2.Open the front (above the manual feed slot) inside is the drum - remove that and the toner cartridge, if necessary. 3. On the back - open the rear chute. You should be able to remove the paper in one of those areas. See the Brother web site for complete pictures ans instructions. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000000/000026/faq000026_006.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2040_all&Cat=4
