Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
We recently had a power outage while the printer was on and now when I try to turn on the printer it won't "work". All of the error lights blink including the ready light and the fan runs but it won't print...
Yes Mr. Guest and Mr SwT,
Replace the fuser assembly unit.
Definitely the fuser got problem. This can be confirm by pressing the Go button and only the Toner LED will light up.
What had happen was right after the power blackout the fuser has fused together both rollers (heating drum and rubber roller) where the paper pass through in between the rollers. Since there was a power blackout, the printer fan has stop functioning and the heat was unable to disperse out from the printer. Suggest to improve on design to disperse heat using aluminium cage in case of power blackout.
Who ever has a Brother HL-2040 should definitely use together with a UPS.

Same thing happened to all printers in our office. They are all Brother HL-5240 and others. We turned them all on, let them sit. When they went into Sleep Mode, it cleared. Ran a test print, and they all work fine now.
