DRUM LIGHT ON HL-5240

Hello,
Our drum light is on, will not print anything, just makes noise as if to start the job then quits. I opened the unit and took out the toner and cleaned it but do not know what else to do. It is only one year old!

Try to reset the Drum.

Open toner door and hold down the go button until all lights are on, let go of button, close door, push go button. Resets drum counter to 100%.

It may some paper jam inside your printer . open the front cover pull out the cartridge and look any jammed paper is there or not. if not the the problem may came from your toner drum.

Paper led light wont stop flashing


Pull the tray out and make sure the back guide is pushed against the paper. The back guide tends to move easily on these models

Brother printer prints solid black on one side


This is caused by a faulty drum/charging circuit or laser unit. The drum is positively charged with static electricity and a laser draws the image onto the drum (changing the charge to negative) the toner is positively charged to it will adhere to the negatively charged image which is now on the drum. your problem is that the drum is either not being positively charged or the laser is charging the whole drum. There is a corona wire on the drum, remove the drum, sweep the corona wire (there will be a tab that moves left and right) and try it again. next step is to replace the drum. if you dont have a spare drum or one from another printer then it may be more cost effective to buy another printer as drums are quite expensive and it may not even be the problem.

Will not print, ''drum'' light is on


Open the front cover and pull out the toner/drum unit. Press the (blue) lever to eject toner cartridge, the remainder of the unit is the drum unit that needs replacing. DR520 is the type you need. Get it at any office supply store.

The drum light will flash on my brother HL-5240 Laser Printer when printing but it continues to print just fine. Does this mean the drum needs to be replaced?

Brother HL-5240 drum light flashing


Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J
