That error usually indicates that the toner has reached its end of life
or the drum is not properly installed.

i had one person who put the toner in but threw the drum cartridge away.

It may some paper jam inside your printer . open the front cover pull out the cartridge and look any jammed paper is there or not. if not the the problem may came from your toner drum.

HL-5240 paper stops before fuser


Your problem is actually the fusing assembly. It has a bad lower roller. It can be viewed by opening the rear door and then the inner rear door. Unfortunately it requires replacing the full fuser and it's expensive. Approx. $170.00.

I know the news is not good but hope it helps you.

Call Brother if it's still under warranty! If not, precisionroller.com stocks them at approximately $170.00

Toner light won't go away.


Ok, now I can help you.

You have a fatel error in your printer. This is unfortunate, but I call them as I see them. The fuser unit has failed and will require replacement. A simple enough task for a technician, but it might take you a little longer. If you hunt around on the internet you should be able to find a fuser unit from a local brother service agent, if they will sell it to you. Otherwise you might be able to look up brother spare parts and you should find something.

Please remember to rate my assistance.

Kindest regards

Status red and amber Toner light


This problem you are getting is to replace the toner cartridge. Have you recently changed the drum unit as well. If so exchange it back to the other one.

After installing new toner or full toner cartridge and removing the yellow plastic cover press the go button this should start the printer on a cycle and add the toner. If this doesn't work then the toner sensor has malfunctioned and will need replacing. This will in turn out way the cost of a new machine.

Hope this helps and not too late for you.

Thanks Jason

The drum light will flash on my brother HL-5240 Laser Printer when printing but it continues to print just fine. Does this mean the drum needs to be replaced?

Brother 5240 laser printer changed toner still wont work.


This works on several different Brother Printers to get rid of toner/drum empty errors:

1. Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps.
2. Turn the printer off.
3. Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.
4. Release the 'go' button.
5. Press the 'go' button 2 times.
6. Pause.
7. Press the 'go' button 5 times.
8. The toner light should be off.
9. The paper light should be on or flashing [doesn't happen on all].
10. Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.
