It is most likely that your Laser Unit is failing. It could also be dirt on the electrodes of the drum unit and machine body or the ground terminal on the paper tray is bent. It is best that you visit you local Brother Authorized Service Center for additional help.

How to load evelopes HL 2140


Brother Hl 2140 Printing on thick paper, labels and envelopes 2
When the back output tray is pulled down, the printer has a straight paper path from the manual feed slot through to the back of the printer. Use this paper feed and output method when you want to print on thick paper, labels or envelopes.


Open the back cover

Open the manual feed slot cover.

Using both hands, slide the manual feed slot paper guides to the width of the paper that you are going to use.

Using both hands, put one piece of paper or one envelope in the manual feed slot until the front edge of the paper or envelope touches the paper feed roller. When you feel the machine pull in the paper, let go.

• Put the paper into the manual feed slot with the side to be printed face up.
• Make sure that the paper or envelope is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper or the envelope may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
• Do not put more than one piece of paper in the manual feed slot at any one time, as it may cause a jam.
• If you put any Media (paper, envelope and so on) in the manual feed slot before the printer is in the Ready state, the media may be ejected without being printed on.

My Ricoh Aficio CL2000N is printing several faint lines


Couple possibilities:
Fuser hot belt has wear lines transfering to the page
Black pcu needs to be replaced
Transfer unit is not being cleaned properly and needs to be replaced.
Remove each of these assy and inspect them for wear or lines that corespond to the lines on your prints.

Little dots on right side of margin (Brother HL-5040)


I would have guessed the trouble shooting steps you first performed. It could still be a bad imaging drum. Or a fuser. Not sure if this model has a replaceable fuser or not.

Tiny dots about 1 inch apart down the side of page


Again, this was actually HP Laserjet 3800. Problem solved by chatting with HP, and them having me go into a diagnosis mode that disabled cartridge check. Then, I removed the cyan cartridge, the dots went away. They then had me put the black into the cyan slot, and not dots appeared. I had backup toner on hand, swapped in a new cyan and magenta, and all was good. HP agreed to replace the cartridges.

Black horizontal lines across pages


If they are the same distance apart every time then suspect the problem to be caused by the components in this order First the drum that is in the print or xerographic module, the charge and cleaning roller are located in that module also. So I suspect that first.its .Located above and to the right of the toner cartridge. Secondly it could be the roller on the toner cartridge, that would occur probably every 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart, the drum would cause the defect about every 3 inches. It less likely could be coming from the fuser, and if the fuser was causing that you should also have a lot of jams. There is also a transfer roller on the right hand door that could be causing it, but that would be exceptionally rare.
If the lines are random and have no consistant spacing, I would suspect the power supply then the laser.
