Question about Brother HL 5140 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Had it a while and it stopped working.

Had it a while and it stopped printing. When I go to print the orange light comes on and it won't do anything. If I uplug both cables (to the computer and to the AC) for a few days and plug it in, it starts working again for a few days and then stops again. Any fix for it? It's not the toner cartridge because I just changed it. I hardly use it much in the last two years. I used to rapair copiers for a living... anything I can do to remedy this?

Come on copier tec you should know better, need to know which light is showing orange, Drum,toner,paper,status?

Intuition tells me that you have a orange toner light and a red status showing, and you are using a non OEM toner, but thats guessing.

Hi,
try removing the camera software that was presumably installed.
If not, can you try a System Restore? Sys Restore will restore your laptop to an earlier time. Try a restore date prior to the date the problem first occurred. (Sys Restore in WInXP is accessed thru Start/Accessories/System Tools- Restore dates that you can use will be in BOLD font on the calendar)
Cheers,

My Canon pixma ip 4000 won´t print. The light at the turn on button blinks five times orange and then comes one green blink. I have tried to clean the print head but that didn´t change anything....


this indicates a the print head is not installed correctly or is faulty.

if the green and orange is alternating 5 times then it is caused by the sheet feeder.

Scanner light should come on at power up. Found ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base had come unplugged from socket on circuit board. The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board. I plugged it in and printer works again. Hope this helps.
