SOURCE: Brother HL-5140, Status light is red and toner

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.

Hi Patricia,

Try to do a factory reset on the server.

Whilst the printer is turned off, press and hold the GO button as you plug the printer on to the socket. Notice that all lights on the printer will turn on as well. Continue pressing the go button until the light for the toner goes up and once its up, release the button. Next, hold down the Go button again until the "Yellow Status" light turns on once on, release the Go button. Wait for the printer to initialize and see if the error went away.

Hope this helps.

Tonner flashing HL-5140- will not print at all, drivers are good


If you have the user manual look on page 3-1 for Control Panel. The different patterns of on/off/blinking lights indicate what the problem is. If the toner is flashing and status is green, your toner is low and should be replaced....

If you don't have the user manual it is at this link:

see page 3-1 or page 81

Brother HL-5140 red status light on


RED status light means that there is a possibility that the internal circuit might have got damaged (cracked to be exact). This would require a professional to fix the problem. So, the best thing to do would be to call Borther techsupport because they will instruct you specifically on what to do and what needs to be replaced (also you may need to consult the device's warranty status)

1-877-BROTHER
Brother Tech Support

hope this helps, good luck on this one.
