I have a Brother HL-5240 laser printer at work, when the printer has not been used for a while, for instance, first thing in the morning. The printer will print 2 thick wavy lines probably about an inch...


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

The printer put extra dots that are not on my


Three or four repeating marks down the page means there will be a spot or smudge of toner on drum unit. Open the front hatch and remover the toner and drum assembly. Separate the toner and drum. Rotate the drum cylinder using the white gear at one end looking carefully at the surface of the cylinder as you turn it. Somewhere on the surface you will see one or more black specks. These need to be cleaned off using alcohol (preferably Iso-propanol but methylated spirit will do)on a cotton ball (or very soft cloth or tissue paper). Once you have found and cleaned off all specks you can re-assemble the toner and drum, put it back in the printer and run a test page. That should fix your problem.

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.

HL-5240 Appears to need new toner but that didn't fix it.


If the marks on the page appear to repeat three or four times down the page regardless of what is printed, it could be the drum unit ( the unit the cartridge fits into) You can test this by taking the cartridge out of the drum and looking at the cylinder in the drum unit. If has light coloured bands, or looks very black, then it is at or past its life cycle ca20-25k pages. If it has clots of toner stuck to it but is otherwise ok, you could carefully clean it with alcohol and a cotton ball to remove the toner clots. Steady and patient is more rewarding than trying to grind the stuff off. If the drum looks reasonably clean, open the flap at the back of the printer and look closely at the fuser. If there are clots of toner stuck to the orange pressure roller or to the grey/tan fuser roller, then the fuser will need to be taken out and cleaned also with alcohol, cotton ball and much patience.

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

My Brother HL 5240 has Status toner, drum and paper lights on, I bought it on 4/30/08, new toner, plenty of paper, it showed on computer: printer is off line, but it was connected with computer. Really...


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?
