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

How do you get a page count from an HL 5140/


On the HL-5140, you can print out a config page which will show the page count on it by pressing down the Go button (the blue button). Hold it for a few seconds, until the config page starts to print out.

To find configuration page instructions and page count tips for other printers, copiers, and fax machines, check out How to Print Configuration Pages.

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.

Our Brother HL-5140 is not printing. It doesn't


Replace the paper pcik-up rolly assembly. MAKE SURE TO get a good look at how the existing one is installed before removing it. It needs a little tweeking to get the new one in and everything lined up correctly.

Also replace the separation page on the paper tray itself.

Look for part number PF-1 Kit or OEM PART #: LJ7920001
The only diagrams I could find on-line of the inside of the printer I found by searching for "brother pl-prn067". Look at pages 8-9.

I've recently installed a new Brother toner, but the drum light is flashing and the Brother hl 5140 printer won't print


DRUM UNIT "spent"
It can be reset if the printing quality is good
To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
Press the cover release button and then open the front cover of the printer.

Press and hold down Go button until all 4 LEDs are lit. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.

Close the front cover.
Make sure that the Drum LED is now off.
Caution: Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.

Ghosting on prints


Wrong paper type can cause this, also if it is damp or too thick. Also check that you have the correct type of paper (thickness) selected in the driver. Ghosting can also be caused by a faulty drum unit, since you just replaced it maybe there is warranty left on it?.

Good luck!

How long will the drum last on a Brother HL 5140 when the yellow drum light starts flashing


I have reused the drum for three life cycles and the print quality is still good. Just reset the counter until the print quality suffers because the cost of the drum exceeds the price of a new printer. According to Brother to reset the counter
  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.

Sounds like a fusing error ... If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit) If toner is sticking to paper but the print quality is poor , replace the drum unit  (PCU)  good luck

Will not Print online Coupos


Just fixed my Brother HL-5140. Hope this helps :) I have struggled for years and finally figured this out from the Brother website.

If you are unable to print coupons from the Internet the print processor
setting in the driver needs to be changed. To change the setting,
1. Open Printers and Faxes.

2. Right mouse click on the Brother printer and left click Properties.

3. Click on the Advanced tab.

4. Click the Print Processor button.

5. Under Print Processor, select WinPrint.

6. Under Default Datatype, make sure RAW is selected. Click OK.

7. Back on the Advanced tab remove the check next to Keep Printed
Documents.

8. Click Apply and OK.

Try printing the coupons again.
