Hi,
there is no problem with printer cartridge, but there is a problem with printer drum unit.
Open the front cover and pool out the drum unit. You will see the blue arrow on the one side on the top of unit. Slide this arrow from left to right few times. If this doesn't help you can get a small brush and try to clean the thin wire (transfer wire) inside the unit and discharge grid below the wire. This should help.
good luck

Prints thick black lines


Hello, Andrea.

Sounds like either your printer needs a new fuser assembly (If the teflon roller gets scratched or starts to disintegrate you will get lines or black marks on the page) or you need a replacement toner.

Hope this helps.

Black horizontal lines in printout


Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

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?
