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.

My brother HL-5240 won't feed from paper tray, only manual feed. It makes a clicking noise. Toner is newer, definitely not empty. I've tried all the tricks of removing some paper, using different paper,...


Pull out a paper cassette, lift up the printer and under you see paper feed roller (it is rubber), just clean roller with cloth and water or alcohol.

How to you turn on the manual feed for the HL 5250dn?


Simply pull down the door on the front of the machine and insert paper into the manual feed tray. There is a sensor that recognises paper in the manual feed try and will then print from it.

You will need to use the manual feed slot which is above the paper tray.

The manual feed is meant for labels and envelopes

It won't print - says manual feed - load paper tray. Its a brand new printer (Brother HL-4040CDN) and the paper tray is full


The printer has an "alternate" feed, i.e., for envelopes and/or for special paper.

Open the door to access that "manual" tray, take some paper from the "normal" tray, and insert the paper into the "manual" tray.

Or, on the printer's controls, set the "standard" feed, rather than the "manual" feed, and press PRINT.

It probably can but only from the front slot, the paper tray has to bend the paper around the roller in the front when feeding.

Printer can't feed paper from tray


You may need to clean the rubber feed roller with a damp towel, water only, or if parts are broken or missing, a new paper tray, around $20.00

Brother HL-5240 printer problem


This usually means a print job is stuck in the queue that was set to "manual feed" or to a different paper size, such as legal. Add paper to the front manual feed and press "Go". If this is the problem, the stuck document will begin printing from the manual tray.

To clear the problem without printing from the manual feed, cancel all jobs on the printer, delete any jobs out of the Windows print queue and restart the computer.

Make sure to clean all the rollers you can see and make sure to check the paper sensor, and clean all rollers and paper paths with some Isopropyl Alcohol (AKA rubbing alcohol)
