Brother HL 5140 has black specks on the page


There's probably something wrong with the drum unit. I would check the manual on how to change the drum unit. Good luck!

Put a new drum in my hl-5140 two weeks ago, now the drum light is flashing again and nothing will print.


  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.
This should reset the DRUM counter.

I have a brother HL-5140 which has some nasty ink spodges on each page. Have carefully cleaned wire as recommended . Is there anything else I can do?


if they are evenly spaced, it will be 1 of 2 things, either the fuser or the drum, if you want to check the drum, take it out, take the toner out of the drum, and rotate the drum by turning the gear, be careful not to touch the drum not have it in direct sunlight or incandescent light and see if you can find the spodges on it.
you can also do a test print, print from the manual tray, and open the main cover after the paper goes in almost all the way. open the door, take the drum out and look at the paper, take it out slowly in the direction the paper was going and see if you see the splodge, if you do, again you will know its the drum.
thanks adi

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.

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.
