For "all the lights are flashing together. Red Status and amber Paper, Toner, Drum lights are all flashing" problem:

Description:
When all the lights are flashing together, turn the printer power OFF, wait 5 seconds and then turn the printer power ON again.

If the error continues, disconnect the interface cable from the back of the printer and use the following steps to reset the printer:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.
If this does not clear the problem, consult your dealer or your authorized service representative.

Hope helped with this.

Put a new drum in my hl-5140 two weeks ago, now the drum light is flashing again and nothing will print.


  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.
This should reset the DRUM counter.

How long will the drum last on a Brother HL 5140 when the yellow drum light starts flashing


I have reused the drum for three life cycles and the print quality is still good. Just reset the counter until the print quality suffers because the cost of the drum exceeds the price of a new printer. According to Brother to reset the counter
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.

Brother HL-5140, Status light is red and toner light is on. Replaced toner cartridge and the same condition exists. Thoughts?


It is very hard to find the reset instructions on the Brother Solutions site.
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.
