A clicking sound when the rollers are rolling means something has got stuck in it. Maybe a bit of paper or card. It might be that the foil on the fuser has got ripped. You need to open all the hatches and pull out all the toner and trays and imager and anything that comes out easily. Inspect if for jammed material.

SOURCE: Re: paper jam in brother laser printer hl 2040 : paper red ligh continue to flash

Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.

SOURCE: BROTHER Hl 2040 PRINTER WON'T PRING

I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything. I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:

  1. Open the front panel.
  2. Remove the toner and the drum
  3. Remove the toner FROM the drum
  4. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. I put mine on the right side.
  5. Put everything back in.
  6. Turn on your printer if it's not already.
  7. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can really empty your cartridge.

On the brother printers, the fuser is often attached to the toner (they come out as one piece). If you look at the old toner, you will probably notice that it is longer than the new one. The extra piece that makes is longer needs to be taken off of the old toner and attached to the new one.

This usually means your printer is out of paper or there is a paper jam somewhere.

Remove the Toner Drum unit and look for a little blue tab. Slide it back and forth a couple of times to clean a corona wire and see if that helps.

My brother HL-2040 Printer is not giving licking sound during startup as well as it also not reading the toner/paper why?


Not sure what you mean by "licking sound during startup"

As for the Toner not reading most often this is caused by the toner cartridge being empty. Try replacing your toner cartridge. If you have recently changed the cartridge it may not have triggered the Toner Reset microswitch. The reset gears on the side of the cartridge will need to be changed back to the ready position. If it is an OEM cartridge then take it back to the place you bought it from and they can replace it and send it back to brother. If it is a remanufactured cartridge then take it back to where you got it from and they can reposition the gears for you.

Not reading the paper can be because there is no paper in the machine or the paper feed system is worn and needs to be replaced.
