Question about Brother HL-5240 Laser Printer
I Have a HL-5240 laser printer. the red light is flashing because of a paper jam. I think there is still one more piece of paper stuck in it. I cannot seem to find it though. any clue where it should be??
Besides your helpful
there are extra doing steps to make my printer back to normal:
- Remove completely the unit toner cartridge, check paper jammed in that unit
- open the basck lid of the printer , remove all paper jammed in that arrea
- Blow out the container inside of the printer, to blow away all paper depris and dust.
- re-install unnit toner, close back lid\re-strat printer like your suggestion
Have a Nice Day

Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.
