Brother 2270 laser printer started jamming every time, after I installed a new toner. It was a Brother toner, at that. Anyone experience this?


Silly question first - is the drum unit DR2225 installed?

Check the toner cartridge sits firmly in the drum and that the drum is pushed all the way forward in the internal cavity. If the paper is jamming at the paper pick up roller ie in the paper tray, clean the paper pick up roller with a drop of meths and a drop of detergent on a damp cloth. If the paper jams in the drum unit, check the clear plastic guide flaps are straight and do not catch the paper. Also check that there is not a piece of paper caught in the drum unit. If the paper gets part way through the drum and then jams, check the fuser at the back for a piece of paper crumpled up inside the fuser. If the printer is trying to take ALL the paper at once, check and clean the paper separation shoe in the paper tray.

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.

Please describe your Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer problem


Yep this will always happen if your just using a replacement toner. They will be depleted faster compared to the original Brother toner.

Make sure you replace your toner with the original Brother toner.

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.

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.

Brother HL 2040 won't print


Sounds like the toner cartridge is faulty. I would change the cartridge.

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.
