Unfortunately your problem is with the fusing assembly. This is not a cheap part at all. It's available at www.precisionroller.com for around $170.00. The problem is the lower silicon roller in the fuser. If you open the back door and then the back inner door, you can view the fuser. The part your looking at is the orange roller. It will either be wrinkled, ballooned, or separating the outer clear sleeve from the inner core. The last one is a little harder to see without a flashlight or similar. If you look close, you'll see the clear silicon oil inside between the outter sleeve and orange core. If the printer is still under warranty, call Brother for a replacement fuser. I know the news is not good but, hope that helps you.

Open the door on the back above the power cord. Rotate both blue levers all the way up so they change from "1" to "2". Wrinkle problem will be solved. This was in the troubleshooting section of the online user manual, page 95. You would think they would tell you about this in the envelope section of the manual.

Envelopes all come out of the printer wrinkled


Open the back of the printer. You will see 2 little blue levers on either side. Put them in the opposite direction, that is, if they are up, snap them down. I dont know the mechanics of this, but it worked for me.

Printing envelopes on HL4040CN


I just bought a HL-4040CN and all my envelopes wrinkled, regardless of the size, paper thickness or software settings (thin envelope, thick envelope, etc.). Here's how I solved the problem....Open the rear panel and you'll notice a small gray lever on each side, which is probably pointing to "A" on the scale (A, B, Envelope). Move both levers to "Envelope" and close the back panel. The troubleshooting manual says the levers should be moved back to "A" after printing the envelopes, but I left them in the Envelope position and can't see any difference when printing regular or test pages or envelopes, except the envelopes are no longer wrinkled. I called Brother and asked them if there was any reason why the levers can't stay in the Envelope position, and they told me they could be left there if it wasn't negatively affecting other documents. Now, I have a great printer that prints everything without any problems. Hope this helps.

The drum light will flash on my brother HL-5240 Laser Printer when printing but it continues to print just fine. Does this mean the drum needs to be replaced?
