Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

Paper feeding problem

My printer either wads up paper as it feeds thru, or will feed extra sheets of paper. Any clue why this happens? I have tried several different brands of bond paper.

Why does the paper jam and a loud noise come from the iP90 printer?

Most likelt to be a foreign object or wad of paper crammed into part of the paper feed roller. The first thing to do is turn it upside down and give a few sharp solid taps on the bottom casing. Then check to see if anything falls out. Also check the leading edge of the paper that didnt go through for marks that might show where it was stopped. If you are sure there is nothing to stop paper feeding through, check at each end of the print head path inside for a clump of ink soaked paper - remove if found. Try feeding a sheet through again. If the paper doesnt feed, try slipping a thin stiff card or plastic sheet back through the feed mechanism from the front. If that doesnt go through, you will have to disassemble the printer to find the problem.

I am trying to print my guest receipts and it is only printing out a quarter of the sheet with no ink.

hello, lets see if we can seperate problem with computer and printer, try running printers self test, i am curios if the machine will print properly, turn printer off, then hold paper feed button and turn machine on, paper will feed and print, once the first test pass, if you want to print the rest, press paper feed button, and machine will print and cut paper, this test is rather a little long, but it will give you info regarding paper feed, and cutting as well as impressions. if paper is dragging, check to see if the paper in machine is in correctly, you might want to check this out first, if the paper is in correctly, then problem is feeding, this is a little hard to clean, but you might want to try some isoproply alcohol and put some on the lead in paper, just enough to get paper wet, and try to allow machine to feed in, or maybe, if paper is already feeding in wet some area before going into machine with alcohol, and press feed button, and allow the paper to feed thru. tear off paper and try the printer test again. if still fails then machine has a problem and will need service.

The scanner takes 2 sheets of paper at a time instead of 1 so only 1 is being scanned. I've tried a different paper that is thicker than regular printer paper and it's still doing it.

There is a pad below the feed roller that wears out. It is called a ****** pad, it retards the feeding of extra sheets of paper. That pad will need to be replaced. Once it is it will stop multisheet feeding.

Miss feeds when print multilpe pages

The paper feed solenoid is sticking, it can be seen thru a hole in the back with the door opened. Not easy to get to, but I have been able to bend the stop tab slightly and run just fine.

Paper feed

The most common factor here is moisture in the paper if it has sat too long. Try just line feeds to see if the transport is at fault or the paper is the problem and inspect the paper feed rollers to see if any debris is fouling things up.

HP paper jam

That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

Printer will not feed paper

Mine did that too.
I found that propping the paper feed cassette up at the end away from the printer worked.
