Check all your printers wires to ensure the printers power cord has not come loose. Also if it is in a power bar ensure that it is turned on.

We have a Brother 5240. We inserted a new drum and toner and the drum light still blinks. Can you advise what the problem is. Thank you


Before you replace the drum you have to clear the error message. To do that you have to Make sure that the printer is turned on and the Drum LED is blinking. Press the front cover release button and then open the front cover. Press and hold down Go for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all four LEDs are lit, release Go.
Here's a link to the Brother website on how to replace the drum with images and instructions.

How do you replace the drum properly on a Brother HL-5240


Out with the old and in with the new, you remove the toner and drum together, remove the toner from the old drum by pressing the blue lever on the side, install the toner in the new drum, and re install in the printer. With the front door open press the go button til all lights flash and then close the door, the new drum is reset.

Brother Laser HL-5240 has a status light and toner light. Fuser was replaced but no help.


that error usually indicates that the toner has reached its end of life
or the drum is not properly installed.

i had one person who put the toner in but threw the drum cartridge away.

Need to clean my 5240 brother laser printer drum


Chances are if your drum requires cleaning, it could be faulty or at the end of its life. However if you must clean it DO NOT use any cleaning agents , chemicals or water. Use only the softest lint free cloth you can find and give it a gentle wipe over

My Brother HL 5240 has Status toner, drum and paper lights on, I bought it on 4/30/08, new toner, plenty of paper, it showed on computer: printer is off line, but it was connected with computer. Really...


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?

I just solved my similar problem- switch off printer, open front door, hold down go (blue) button. Now switch on, holding the go button for about 10 seconds then closing the door.This left the lights all off, green light only when pressing go. Switch off then on, it worked! hopefully this helps someone else. Ross
