If they are evenly spaced, it will be 1 of 2 things, either the fuser or the drum, if you want to check the drum, take it out, take the toner out of the drum, and rotate the drum by turning the gear, be careful not to touch the drum not have it in direct sunlight or incandescent light and see if you can find the spodges on it.
you can also do a test print, print from the manual tray, and open the main cover after the paper goes in almost all the way. open the door, take the drum out and look at the paper, take it out slowly in the direction the paper was going and see if you see the splodge, if you do, again you will know its the drum.
thanks adi

Brother HL 5140 has black specks on the page


There's probably something wrong with the drum unit. I would check the manual on how to change the drum unit. Good luck!

How do you get a page count from an HL 5140/


On the HL-5140, you can print out a config page which will show the page count on it by pressing down the Go button (the blue button). Hold it for a few seconds, until the config page starts to print out.

To find configuration page instructions and page count tips for other printers, copiers, and fax machines, check out How to Print Configuration Pages.

Our Brother HL-5140 is not printing. It doesn't


Replace the paper pcik-up rolly assembly. MAKE SURE TO get a good look at how the existing one is installed before removing it. It needs a little tweeking to get the new one in and everything lined up correctly.

Also replace the separation page on the paper tray itself.

Look for part number PF-1 Kit or OEM PART #: LJ7920001
The only diagrams I could find on-line of the inside of the printer I found by searching for "brother pl-prn067". Look at pages 8-9.

Brother HL-5140 cleaning page?


There isn't a cleaning page on a Brother 5140. If the smudges are about 3.5 inches give or take a little and the same each time in a line it's probably the drum is damaged. If they are closer like 1-3/8" to 1-1/2" it will likely be the toner cartridge.

If it spaces out a more, something like 2-1/2 it will be the fuser.

Sounds more like toner cartridge though.

Hope that helps you.
