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.

Had a power outage for several hours. Power came back on but the printer came on with all lights blinking. Turned power off and back on but the same problem. What's happened, and what do I do?


Nearly all later printers have circuits that stay 'alive' even with the power turned off. Try pulling the AC plug overnight' this should clear most stored errors that may still be present.

Hi,

Try this solution.

* Turn your printer off.
* Hold in the circular button on the front panel of your printer.
* Turn your printer back on.
* When the drum light is lit by itself let go of the button.
* Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
*
Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
Your printer should now be reset.

Hope this help you.

If your product is in warranty then I recommend you to contact HP support to service or replace the unit. Otherwise perform the steps given below and verify the results.

  1. Turn on the unit.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the unit.
  3. Press and hold the # and 7 buttons simultaneously.
  4. While still holding down the # and 3 buttons, connect the power cord to the back of the unit.
  5. Continue holding the buttons until the Power button blinks.
  6. Follow the instructions that display on the unit to select the language settings.

Power went out and back on; now printer won't print


I had the same problem after a resent power outage. Here's what fixed mine.

Turn the power switch off.
Wait a 15-20 seconds
While holding the button on the front panel down turn the power switch on.
After the drum light comes on release the button wait then press the button again.
Turn the machine off then back on again and you should be back in business.

To prevent the problem in the future if you are not using the printer turn it off and if the power goes off while printing get the printer turned off before the power comes back.
