Brother HL-2070N Paper light flashing.

Brother HL-2070N Paper light flashing. by JonathonC (1/12/08 12:43 AM) reply + / -
Just received a Brother HL-2070N from work, being thrown out. Apparently, they think the problem is to do with the printer tray or the sensors in it. The red paper light constantly flashes when I switch it on.

The front flap is missing at the moment, i need to order a replacement. However, I have covered or pressed the sensors it pushes when the flap is closed to emulate it's presence.

Any help would be much appreciated as I am unable to print on this printer currently.

Thanks in advance.

I was having the same problem. I tried holding down the power button. The various LED lights flash in several patterns and finally the paper light goes off and the ready light comes on. It's printing just fine once again...worth a try.

Same issue. I once got it working by opening things up and closing them again. Now the same problem. It seems to be a very common failure.

I was incredibly frustrated by this "paper" light flashing as well.

What fixed it was the last one - the Clean drum unit: The corona wire needs to be cleaned. To see how to clean the corona wire, click here.

That is what solved it for me.
