Question about Brother HL 5140 Laser Printer
I have just inherited two 5140 and the first one works perfectly. When trying to do a test print with the second printer i manually feed the paper which it takes through the printer but nothing is on the page when it has finished it then appears to want a second sheet which when I manually feed it feeds it through the printer most of the way (Jams when sticking half way out) - again there is nothing on this page apart from a bit of a mark from a roller.
The first printer (the one that works) has Brother toner and the second printer has toner with an IMPEGA label on (presumably an OEM?) I have tried the Brother toner in the second printer but this does not make any difference.
I would be very grateful if anyone has any suggestions.
Thanks a lot. Jane

SOURCE: Brother MFC 7420 Paper Jam
After changing the drum, toner and running around town for days trying to find a reliable place to get this printer repaired, I realized I was spending a lot more money than what the printer actually costs. the drum was over $100, toner was $80, and the printer is $250. I bought a new one, and I can now use the old one for parts.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: label sheets won't feed, jam
1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.
If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
