Hi, you don't need to open the top. Having opened the front, you pull out the drum assembly using the finger-grip on the front edge of the tray (dark grey plastic); once that's out you can release the cartridge by pressing the blue release catch on the right-hand side. Drop a new cartridge in, slide it all back into the machine, and Job Done! Hope this helps.

There's probably something wrong with the drum unit. I would check the manual on how to change the drum unit. Good luck!

Brother hl 5140 drum light comes on then off every 4


With the front cover open, press and hold down Go button until all 4 LEDs are lit. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the go button, then close the front cover.

This will reset the drum counter.

Brother HL-5140, Status light is red and toner light is on. Replaced toner cartridge and the same condition exists. Thoughts?


It is very hard to find the reset instructions on the Brother Solutions site.
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.

HL-5140 Brother laser printer red status light remains on.


The red lite indicates one of the following needs to be looked at:

Cover open (Front cover) Close the front cover.

Cover open (Jam clear cover) Close the jam clear cover of the fuser unit.

Memory full - Press the go button.

Print overrun - Press the go button.

Clean drum unit - Clean the corona wire.

Blank white 'line' on printed output


Some of the brother printer use a toner cartridge that does not have a drum, have u replaced the drum recently, or does the toner cartridge have it installed? If it has a seperate crriage for the drum, let me know.

Brother HL-5140 cleaning page?


There isn't a cleaning page on a Brother 5140. If the smudges are about 3.5 inches give or take a little and the same each time in a line it's probably the drum is damaged. If they are closer like 1-3/8" to 1-1/2" it will likely be the toner cartridge.

If it spaces out a more, something like 2-1/2 it will be the fuser.

Sounds more like toner cartridge though.

Hope that helps you.
