Question about Brother HL 5140 Laser Printer
I taped a very small white piece of paper over the sensor eyes on either side of the cavity where the cartridge fit. I read that coloring in the actual "windows" that are on either side of cartridge also may help so I did that too.
So open the front, remove cartridge, look on the cartridge for a small circle and color them with black marker (or use electrical tape), look where they would have aligned inside the cavity, tape a small piece of white paper over those sensor eyes.
I just did this and it stopped the blinking. Don't know how long but based on my reading, one of these was the trick.

SOURCE: i have a brother 2140
When it says to clean the corona, on the drum there is a purple tab that moves from one side to the other. run it back and forth a couple times that should solve the problem.
I dont recommend refilling the cartridges, we have had several issues in repairing those printers with refill. if you must use refills, i would recommend getting 2nd or 3rd party manufacturers.
if you need help, you can contact us.

Is the printer still asking for a new toner..?
If it is the there is a gear that can be reset on the toner cartridge to tell the machine its a new toner cartridge. This is normally done by an engineer, but is quite easy to do if you know how. And I do :0

If the main problem is just the toner light on then what you could do after installing the new toner is resetting the printer. You could do that by powering the printer off, open the front cover (as if you were to replace the toner) with the front cover open and the printer off push and hold the two buttons on the printer and turn the printer on while holding down the buttons then once the bottom light stays on solid, release the two buttons and that should reset the printer.
Now if the toner light is blinking that means that you have reached the 30,000 page mark and the Photoconductor needs to be replaced. If that is not the case you can follow this link to a procedure where it will explain how to reset the Photoconductor. http://bit.ly/91SWS3
