Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Do you use the Brother HL-series printer as a fax, at any time, esp. for receiving faxes at any time?
Take the printer offline for now, by removing all paper from it, to shut down the paper-wasting of unnecessary printing while we figure out what is wrong, I advise.
