Question about Brother HL 5140 Laser Printer

Printer makes clicking noise when printing

When a file is sent to the printer to print the printer begins making a consistent clicking noise while the printer is actually printing the document. It sounds as though it is coming from the rollers that take the paper. Can you help with this problem or can you suggest a location in Washington, D.C. that can repair the problem?
Thank you for your help.

It sound like the Brother HL-5140 Fuser gear is about to give out. This is very common.

One reason why the cartridge is making a clicking noise is that there is a washer and spring missing from the inside of the cartridge

if this is the case you will need to buy a new cartridge as it can not be solved until the washer and spring are put in

Printer is in ready to print mode but not print when document is sent.


Hi Felix,
Again in broad terms.
When you see processing data that could be a sign that the internal processor is trying to make sense of the information you sent to it.
I've seen Xerox printers saying processing data and nothing appears before.
It could be anything from a bad file sent to the printer, that it can't deal with or print because you don't have a PDF license perhaps.
The other helpful thing would be to see if your error sheets have been turned off. I know it is usually a wast of paper but it might be a clue as to why no print appears apter processing your file/print.
Consider this, the printer I have is sat quiet with a window saying ready to print and yet the fuser is quite cold. The only thing that can wake it up is a genuine print. Now if it's cold all the time then you should have a 'Fuser Error'
Again, sorry to be so vague but without being on site it's difficult to get to the bottom of your query.
The local Xerox engineer or concessionaire should be really helpful.
Good luck.

Stalled printer cartridges


Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Printer won't print from computer


Start from the beginning. Check that everything is connected between the computer and printer. Be sure the power is on. In Windows XP, go to the control panel and find "Printers and Faxes". Double click on that. If you don't find your printer in the list of printers and icons, click on the "Add Printers" button on the left column. Follow the steps to install your printer. When you print, make sure the printer is selected. If you have more than one printer icon (and you only have one printer), right-click on the icon for your printer, and find the button that says " Set As Default Printer". Click on that so that the printer is the one that will print your files. You'll see a check-mark next to the icon which indicates that it's the default printer. If you have multiple icons for the same printer, delete the ones that aren't being used.
Once your printer is set up properly, try printing something to be sure it works.
If it doesn't and you can't figure out what's wrong, you may have a faulty cable. Try another one.
When you go to print you file, click on "File", then "Print". Then you can see which printer is going to be used. If your printer isn't shown in the box at the top, click on the scroll box and see if your printer is there. Click on it if you see it in there. If you simply click on the printer icon on the tool bar, you won't know which printer has been selected. Use the "File" and "Print" commands instead to gain access to more information about your printer selection, paper type, preferences, etc. Good luck!
