    My paper jammed on top at the feeder area, and I can't get the paper out. It had previously jammed by the toner cartridge, but that seems to be o.k. now. When that jam was cleared, printer just started printing endless blank sheets, then stuck at feeder.

Perhaps look along the paper path for the little bit of paper that maybe stuck along the path somewhere. I had this problem and it was just a little piece of the corner of a page wedged in the back of the toner tray.

Our HL 5140 won't print. The status light and paper light is flash, yet there is paper in the tray.


Hello ,

Please follow the below steps to try and clear this message.

  1. Turn the power off on the unit.
  2. Open the front and back cover of the unit.
  3. Remove the drum and toner cartridge from the unit.
  4. Check thoroughly inside for any paper jams or any other foreign objects and remove them.
  5. Reinsert the drum and toner and close the front and back cover.
  6. Turn the unit back on.

This should clear the error message on the display screen and allow you to resume normal use of the printer.

Thank you,

Pat

HL-5140 model. the paper light is flashing and


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.

My HL-5140 paper is not coming out after printing.


Hi there
HAve you seen a small coil spring with 2 lugs come out of the machine? If you look inside the printer cavity you should see one of these springs either side of the internal black frame work.aboutThese should be about 1 1/2" into the machine just close to a clear lens on either side. If one of these is missng the drum/cartridge unit is not properly aligned and will cause jamming as you have described.

Failing that you have either a sensor problem or a faulty drum unit.

Please let me know and I'll try yo help further.

Cheers

Non stop paper jams


I had this same problem. I finally noticied that the problem occurred consistently on the right side of the paper feed. I discovered that a little part along the right side of my drum unit (just inside the paper feed area) had disconnected and was loose inside the drum unit itself. Once this little part was placed back into it's rightful place, VOILA! Problem solved! Hope this helps!
