Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer


The error message is "Out of Paper" Plenty of paper in drawer, added more, still won't print. Will not print in Word, Quick books Pro, local multiple listing service programs.....tried aboaut 6 programs get same message.
The local tech got online and tried working with the ports, cancelling drivers etc and reinstalling. OUT OF PAPER.
The last item I tried t print was online from MLS and the activity report I reqquested was 139 pages (I cancelled it at page 5). Nothing is left in the printer ques. I presume the programmer set up so if out of paper printer would stop and leave message. How do I get rid of the error?
OH< PLEEZE HELP! Thanks www:[email protected]

Use the following steps to perform a Factory Reset:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer.
  3. Turn the printer back on.
  4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.
  5. Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
  6. Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
let us know if this works.

  • Open the drawer the printer is currently pulling from when the error message "E07" appears on the display. Verify that the paper in the drawer is the correct size and close the drawer firmly!

    I have a cannon image class MF6540. When I try and print I get an error "out of paper". I have plently of paper. I am able to copy but not print.

    I assume you are trying to print from your computer.
    The driver for this unit will give you an out of paper message almost any time it won't print for any reason.
    If the unit copies, but does not print from your computer, then it is a communication issue. Perhaps uninstall/reinstall the driver?

    Lexmark T644 Drawer 2 Missing error message but drawer 2 is in place. Drawer 2 always has problems pulling form form drawer when printing from drawer 2.

    If job prints from the wrong tray or on the wrong paper or specialty media, this is an indication that the operator panel menu settings do not match the media loaded in the tray.

    Make sure the Paper Size and Paper Type specified in the printer driver match the paper size and type in the tray.

    Copystar 5035 - drawer 2 - we had not been using drawer 2; tried to load it with 8.5x14 paper, however, now that we are trying to use the drawer, we are getting an error message "paper drawer is out of...

    You have to reset the drawer by; 10871087 and run SIM 906

    You should be able to just key in the Code you wish, then hit the print key to activate.

    Then use the touch screen to reset then print key again.

    913 service motor error

    If this is the first time you have seen this error, do the following:
    1. Power off the printer.
    2. Remove all installed paper trays.
    3. Make sure the paper is loaded correctly in each tray. If it is not, reload the paper into that tray.
    4. Look up into the printer where the paper tray slides in and out. Check the feed (autocompensator) assembly for any damage.
    5. If everything is fine, reinstall the tray and power on the printer.
    6. Try printing a few print jobs.
    7. If the error does not return, continue using the printer as before. Keep an eye on it for the next few days. If the error does not return, it may have been an isolated incident.
    8. If the error returns just as soon as you power on the printer or when you try to print again, you will need to find out which paper tray/paper source is causing the problem.
    • If the printer has only the one integrated paper tray, the problem will be with either the tray 1 pick arm/autocompensator assembly or the printer's engine/system board.
    • If the printer has more than one paper tray installed, try printing from each paper tray one at a time. The best way to do this is to have all of the paper trays empty and then proceed as follows:
      1. Put paper in tray 1 only.
      2. Print from tray 1.
      3. If tray 1 works fine, empty tray 1 and put paper in tray 2 and so on until you encounter the error message.
      4. If you receive the error when printing from one particular tray, power off the printer to clear the error.
      5. Power the printer back on.
      6. Skip the faulty paper feed slot and move on to the next one (if another one is present). If you can print from all but one of the paper trays, this is the source of the problem.

        If you have extra paper trays/drawer units installed and the error occurs from only one particular source, there are some things you can do as a temporary fix.
        • If the error is occurring from an OPTIONAL paper drawer/source, power off the printer and remove the defective drawer from the printer. You will then need to set up the printer to print from a different tray. For information on removing an optional drawer, click here.
        • If the error is occurring from the integrated paper tray (tray 1) AND you have optional paper trays installed, take all of the paper out of tray 1 but leave tray 1 installed. Set up the printer to print from one of the other paper tray sources (tray 2, tray 3, multi-purpose feeder, etc.).
      7. And if your getting the same error then you need to get it serviced...

    Canon Laser Class 3175 facsimile, incoming faxes are being saved in memory, will not print. Cannot clear error message "check paper size".

    The problem is that you have a fax saved in memory that is the wrong size for the paper you have in the drawer. Probably it is a legal size, whereas you have letter size in the drawer.Just place some legal size paper in the by-pass tray to print.
