I found a drum at office max for $166.00 over a month ago but thanks for answering anyways.

You will most likely find the drum on Newegg for the cheapest. I just purchased a DR-510 from them for about $100. Staples charges $170 for the same drum! Do the math.

Brother hl 5140 drum light comes on then off every 4

With the front cover open, press and hold down Go button until all 4 LEDs are lit. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the go button, then close the front cover.

This will reset the drum counter.

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.

Non stop paper jams

I had this same problem. I finally noticied that the problem occurred consistently on the right side of the paper feed. I discovered that a little part along the right side of my drum unit (just inside the paper feed area) had disconnected and was loose inside the drum unit itself. Once this little part was placed back into it's rightful place, VOILA! Problem solved! Hope this helps!

  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.
