make sure you have the drum seated all the way in, then unplug the printer and plug it back in.

SOURCE: 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)

SOURCE: Brother HL 5250 DN status shows "error". Won't print.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My printer is not printing anything. the status light isnt even on what should i do?


Does the "Status Monitor" in your printer display any errors?
Is the printer cover securely closed?
Is any of the LEDs in the printer flashing?
What happened just before the printer stopped working? Did you have a poer failure? Did you install new software or hardware or a Windows update?

Please, report back the status (ON, OFF, BLINKING) of the following LEDs:

TONER
DRUM
PAPER
STATUS

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.

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

The red lite indicates one of the following needs to be looked at:

Cover open (Front cover) Close the front cover.

Cover open (Jam clear cover) Close the jam clear cover of the fuser unit.

Memory full - Press the go button.

Print overrun - Press the go button.

Clean drum unit - Clean the corona wire.
