Memory full - Press the go button.

Well, if the toner light is on, you're probably out of toner and the only reason it ran, was because it was low but not completely depleted.

Try new toner drum off of Ebay or Amazon for the best prices for your brother printer.

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.
