Question about Brother HL 5140 Laser Printer
I recently changed my toner in my HL-5140 printer that had been working great up until I changed the toner. Now the only thing I can get it to do is to feed two sheets completely through and feed a third 1/2 way through. I have tried to put brand new toner in as well as new drum, tried resetting. It doesn't matter what I send to it from my pc...one page or ten it feeds through the first two and then stops 1/2 way through on the third sheet and gives me the obviously paper jam error.. Any body have any ideas... thanks kindly
The fact that you changed the toner cartridge should clue you. I have 2 5140s, or rather I have a 5140 and a MFC that uses a 5140 or its clone as the printing part. So, I can swap printer cartridges. The cartridge I bought from Inkjetsuperstore.com jammed constantly and spit out pages with a dark edge. They were great in sending me a new one very quickly, but the new one also jams the same way. Swapping for another knockoff cartridge I had in the MFC cured the problem. Moral of story: All cartridges are not created equal. Brother charges too much, so I am likely to try different knockoff vendors on eBay, but if I didn't have the option to swap and needed the printer all the time, I would go with Brother cartridges.

Im pretty sure that the printer is broken... If you really want to spend twice as much on fixing your printer go ahead, but i sugest calling the company and asking for assistance they will probably send you a new 1 and then you just send them your odl 1 thats what i did..
