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!

Help me, please . Red status light on. PC recognises printer. Nothing happening. Toner was on for a few weeks. But now new toner cartridge and still solid red light. What is this?

That series of lights indicates a main circuit board failure. You will need a shop to replace the main logic PCB. Could be caused by anything, static shock, bad input power from power strip or power failure, just plain CPU failure. If it's under warranty, 1 year since purchase, you need a Brother service center, out of warranty a new printer would cost less than repair.
