SOURCE: 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 the end tab in the paper tray is not too tight. The tab where you set the paper length. The paper should have about 1/16 inch space and not hold the paper too tight.

Pull the tray out and make sure the back guide is pushed against the paper. The back guide tends to move easily on these models

I have mechine brother 5250 dn printer in that all lights r glowing culd u please provide the solutions


When all the lights are flashing together, turn the printer power OFF, wait 5 seconds and then turn the printer power ON again.

If the error continues, disconnect the interface cable from the back of the printer and use the following steps to reset the printer:
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.

If this does not clear the problem, consult your dealer or your authorized service representative.

We have a Brother 5240. We inserted a new drum and toner and the drum light still blinks. Can you advise what the problem is. Thank you


Before you replace the drum you have to clear the error message. To do that you have to Make sure that the printer is turned on and the Drum LED is blinking. Press the front cover release button and then open the front cover. Press and hold down Go for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all four LEDs are lit, release Go.
Here's a link to the Brother website on how to replace the drum with images and instructions.

That is a serious error and you need to press the go button and see which lights are lit while you hold it and it tells the rest of the error. Could be main pcb, engine pcb or even a fuser error.

  1. Open the front cover of the printer.
  2. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.
  3. Close the front cover.
Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.

I just solved my similar problem- switch off printer, open front door, hold down go (blue) button. Now switch on, holding the go button for about 10 seconds then closing the door.This left the lights all off, green light only when pressing go. Switch off then on, it worked! hopefully this helps someone else. Ross

Brother HL-5240 drum light flashing


Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J
