Try installing the software package that comes with the printer. The software usually loads a helper app that pings the printer and keeps it online.

Brother HL5140 won't print


Sadly this happens all the time - we have about 12 of these printers and 2 have the same problem at this moment and the only fix we have found previously is to replace the drum unit with a brand new one which is hardly economical - indeed the machines are all NHS funded and often the solution has been to throw the printers with this problem away and we have a few defunct ones piled in a corner because of this - if anyone knows why and how this happens ( the tech dept locally has no ideas but just wupply an new printer as they are cheap) I would be very interested also - changing the drum and cartride to a partly used one from a different machine does nothing at all either so it has to be something to do with the chip in the new drum resetting the machine but how and why is beyond us. In every case the printer prints perfectly before the fault and after the change to a new drum so I can only assume it is a way of generating more drum sales??

HL-5140 Brother laser printer red status light remains on.


The red lite indicates one of the following needs to be looked at:

Cover open (Front cover) Close the front cover.

Cover open (Jam clear cover) Close the jam clear cover of the fuser unit.

Memory full - Press the go button.

Print overrun - Press the go button.

Clean drum unit - Clean the corona wire.

make sure you have the drum seated all the way in, then unplug the printer and plug it back in.
