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.

3 horizontal lines in the page


Likely you have a dirty cartridge/drum. Take the cartridge out and move it slowly by hand, when (and if) you see lines, take a Q-tip and gently erase the lines. Work gently because scratches can actually create lines. If the problem still exists, then maybe it is the drum. Before I replaced the drum, I would reset the software on the printer and get a page count on the drum while I was at it. The utility is available from brother.

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.

Drum light


You need to reset the drum count. Open the toner door. Hold the "Go" key until all 4 lights light up. Let go of the button and close the door. That should reset the drum count and stop the blinking.
