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

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!

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.

I have a hl 5140 printer and there are lines on the side of the page when it prints.


Hi
Hope I can solve your problem
The first thing is do you go to print preview before you print if you do and the line is there it might have something to do with your page border go to your page border and put on no border

It also might have something to do with not having your paper correctly in the printer make sure all your paper is the same in the printer and it is all straight
and correct at the time of print.
but my bet is that you have your page border on 1 side of your paperwhen you are doing a document up the top you have page borders make sure it is on no page border

I hope I helped

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.

Black Vertical Line on the paper


start a print from tray 1/manual feed and just as the trailing edge of paper is entering the machine;quickly open it to stop print and take out the cartridge and look at it's drum and the paper underneath. if the issue is there at that point then it would point to the cartridge. if not then the fuser
Let me know....
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

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

Black horizontal lines in printout


Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

Brother HL-5140 cleaning page?


There isn't a cleaning page on a Brother 5140. If the smudges are about 3.5 inches give or take a little and the same each time in a line it's probably the drum is damaged. If they are closer like 1-3/8" to 1-1/2" it will likely be the toner cartridge.

If it spaces out a more, something like 2-1/2 it will be the fuser.

Sounds more like toner cartridge though.

Hope that helps you.
