    My Brother 5240 erratically stops printing, but is showing an online and ready. Running Vista Home. Reinstalling it doesn't help, nor does turning off/holding down buttons turning on.

SOURCE: Brother 5240 laser printer changed toner still wont work.

When a brand new toner is inserted it has a switch that is activated when new cart is installed.

 

Machine has two toner light errors blinking is toner low, full on is toner out all stop,

 

 I guess yours has not reconised new cart, was it new out of a sealed box?

 

If so then it failed to reset upon install

 

You can pull apart reset lever on left front of cartridge and reset to original position if you want to get just a little tecnical

 

One sctew carefull gears fall off ,white lever needs to be fully to rear of slot to emulate new cart status..

 

If brand new cart return to supplier as faulty.

 

If you just refilled it, go buy a real one to prolong life of your product

SOURCE: My Brother Printer (model MFC-290c) and ink

On your printer take a look on the "ink management button"press it then look for cleaning using the arrows up and down then press ok or set or what ever the command the printer will display just try to perform head cleaning.try for several times lets say 4x don't clean too much it might ruin all other color if it has no changes try to bring it to a service center,they can soak it to a chemical solution,the head is clog.

Usually this is caused by a foreign object or debris under the printhead path, or under where the printhead "parks."

Unplug the machine. Open the cover. Check the printhead path for little bits of paper, push pins, paperclips, staples etc. Note the location of the printhead.

If the printhead is at the far left, gently slide it towards the center (do not force it). Look carefully under where the printhead was stopped for debris. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Close the cover. Plug in the unit. Try again.

SOURCE: problem paper jam printer brother no mfc-490cw

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My Brother HL-5240 printer constantly has the paper light on even though there is paper loaded


You probably printed a document that was forced to the manual feed. Place some paper there and it should print. Go to your printer preferences and set the default tray to tray1 instead of Auto.

This sounds like a classic fuser failure. Take the printer to a qualified repair facility and they can replace the fuser and check all of the fuser and exit drives for proper operation.

There is a sensor that goes up when printing and should go back to its normal position after ejecting the printed page. Sometimes it get stuck, you can manually reposition that sensor. It looks like a small plastic lever and located where the paper is going out.

New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up


My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!
