I have a Brother MFC-8890DW Brother printer. I was printing

Customer Question

I have a Brother MFC-8890DW Brother printer. I was printing OK until now when I get the flashing red light that says "No paper", and the message tell s me to add more paper. I added paper to its capacity but it still does not print when I tied different documents. Please help
JA: What kind of computer or device are you printing from?
Customer: I have a Dell inspiron 1525, which I have always used
JA: How long has this been going on with your MFC-8890DW?
Customer: Just now. I was printing things OK yesterday. I took out and replaced the tray, looked for paper jams, rebooted the printer without success.
JA: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on your jo-1013
Customer: I have never updated the operating system on my computer- but it has successfully printed all along.
JA: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: A secondary issue which does not have to be resolved today. When I try to print Google maps (eg to get to a location), the print is always fuzzy/blurred and one cannot read the street names- but this is a problem for tomorrow, unless it can be addressed today- most important is printing anything

It occurred last night. It seemed to go away but today it has recurred , especially when I try to print e-mails. I could print a Word document

when will I have a technician contact me?
Expert:  P. Kumar replied 2 months ago.

Thanks for reverting back. So you are saying, Word Documents print fine, its the emails that are not printing?

Thanks,

My Brother printer flashes a red light and says"No Paper" when the tray is full of paper. Once the red light occurs, I cannot print anything afterwards. When I star off with a word document it can print. Also I added Firefox to my laptop as an additional browser last week to Internet Explorer and Google chrome. I don;tt now if this is part of the problem
