F paper jams inside the printer, the printer will stop. One of the following LCD messages will appear to tell
you where to find the jammed paper.

I used inkjet transfer paper in my colour laser pr - faq000027.gif

Check where the jam is and clear the jammed paper referring to appropriate FAQ below.

  1. "Jam Tray 1" : Paper Jam in the standard paper tray (Tray 1). Click here to clear "JAM TRAY1".
  2. "Jam Rear" : Paper jam where the paper comes out of the printer. Click here to clear "JAM REAR".
  3. "Jam Inside" : Paper jam inside the printer. Click here to clear "JAM INSIDE".
If the error message still appears on the LCD after you remove the jammed paper, there may be more paper jammed somewhere else. Check the printer thoroughly.
After you have removed all the jammed paper, open the front cover and then close it again to start printing.

Note Always remove all paper from the paper tray and straighten the stack when you add new paper. This helps prevent multiple sheets of paper from feeding through the printer at one time and prevents paper jams.

SOURCE: Paper jam with Brother HL-2030 laser printer

Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.

SOURCE: I believe there is a

I knew I had to take out the toner cartridge but I couldn't remember if it was one piece or two. I went to over a dozen websites before I found some details beyond "Take out the cartridge." However the image was not clear. I asked for help from my wife, who knows less aobut computers than I do. She said, "It's definitely two pieces," and took the toner cartridge out, whereupon I removed the paper stuck in there and put the toner cartridge back in. Moral of the story: When even the instructions fail, ask you wife. Thank you, dear!

I believe you have to call you manufacturer and ask if you can purchase the tray separately. They might also give you a company that manufacture's parts of their printer.

Unfortunately I don't have any number about brother but you can visit their website and you might find their number.Their website is

Brother hl-3045 jam inside

Had the same problem, called help center and fixed it!!!
Problem occurred when i tried to print colour labels from Word.
Black cartridge printing worked fine.
When using manual feed (pull down black panel in front which says 'brother'- you'll get the message for this if printing labels
you must open the back door of the printer.
got 'paper jam inside' error message.

Here's what I did and somewhere along the way, something worked.

Turn and unplug machine
take out all drum cartridges (all 4)
Take out the black belt (everything you can remove has a green arrow or tab- easy)
check to see if there's any paper in there- there was no paper in my case.
separate the drum from the cartridge for each colour and check the colour roller and the fuser film roller- don't touch them- no paper stuck that i could see
put them back together carefully.
Put the belt in and then the 4 cartridges
do a test run- mine still showed error message- paper jam inside
switch black with each cartridge and do a test run for each. When i switched with yellow - didn't work, magenta- didn't work- cyan- WORKED!!!- the colours were messed up on the document but it went through and printed without the error message.
Here's the sequence of what colour cartridge went in which spot.
Yellow in black slot
magenta in yellow slot
cyan in magenta slot
black in cyan slot.
then i switched them back to the way they are supposed to be and tried to print again and it worked!
the colour is amazing on this printer- i had the trouble right from the beginning after installation.
hope this helps.

Hi, we just used iron on paper in the printer, and the paper got stuck. we think it melted to the rolls on the back of the printer, the oragane and black rollers. what do we do????

Oops...You need to remove the fuser unit from the printer & attempt to carefully remove the melted paper. You can use a sharp object to get started but be very careful not to damage the surface of the heat roller. This needs to be a slow patient job but it should come off.
Otherwise you will need a new fuser unit.

How could i fix paper jam on Brother HL-2140 Laser Printer?

One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.

Brother Laser Printer, paper gets stuck and printing wipes off.

Opened up the back and found there is a plastic cog wheel on the end of an orange drum, which must be the Fuser Unit, which was damaged. So the paper was getting as far as the drum but the rollers to pull it through the Fuser Unit were not going round. A new Fuser Unit seems to be about £99 plus VAT and I don't supose a new printer is much more than that. So if anyone has a spare Fuser Unit for a Brother HL 5140 which is still in good working order I would be happy to consider buying it. Alternatively I have 2 x spare drums DR3000 and 1 x toner TN3060 for sale !!

Make sure to clean all the rollers you can see and make sure to check the paper sensor, and clean all rollers and paper paths with some Isopropyl Alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol)
