Question about Brother HL 5140 Laser Printer

1 Answer

When we changed cables, the printer stopped printing. We put the old cable back, inserted a new toner, and downloaded drivers again, but still won't print. All the lights come on as they should, but I get the ERROR PRINT message each time.

Printer won't print. I had to move the desk and everything was unplugged and now it won't print. It is on, checked as default, on-line, I think it may be the port.


  1. Background
    • HP provides details of the problem on its website. The problem usually occur on PC laptops or when printing across a network. HP offers several fixes for the problem.
    Software
    • First, check your Windows print queue and ensure the printer is not set as "Paused" or "Working Offline." This can often clear the problem and resume your printing.

    Resolution
    • The problem can also be caused by printer driver issues. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver. Connecting your printer directly to your computer using a parallel cable may solve the problem, but this may not be practical in all cases as many modern laptop computers do not have a parallel port.
Instructions
    • 1 "Power Cycle" Your printer. Shut down the printer, unplug the power cord from the socket, give it 5 minutes, plug it in again and turn it back on. Try to print.
    • 2 If the printer still won't process a job, shut down and restart your computer.
    • 3 Check your printer cable connections to the computer.
    • 4 Check the printer for any paper jams, check the trays, and also pull out the toner cartridge and/or remove any paper jam, if you find one. Put the cartridge back in. Then try to print.
    • 5 If after completing the steps above, the printer is still not working, click "Start," then "Settings," click "Printers," and the printer folder will open. Make sure your HP LaserJet 5 is selected as the default printer.
    • 6 Double-click your printer, and delete everything from the print queue, canceling all the print jobs. Close out the queue.
    • 7 Right-click on your printer icon and make sure it's not offline. If it is, then click "use this printer online."
    • 8 Right-click your printer, and click properties. Make sure the right port is selected for your LaserJet 5 Printer. If you are using a parallel cable, you are most likely using an LPT port; if USB, then look for a USB connection in the list. If the port connection is correct, try to print again.
    • 9 It's still not printing? Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Double-click "Programs and Features" or "add or remove programs," uninstall your Laserjet printer software, and restart your computer.
    • 10 Insert your Laserjet software and driver disk. Proceed to reinstall your printer software and drivers. Then test the printer again. If it is still not working, you probably will have to seek professional assistance.

How to change laser printhead


Laser printers do not use a printhead.
When the toner runs out you need to get a new toner cartridge which includes the print drum.
You lift up the cover to reveal the toner cartridge, grab the cartridge and pull it out towards the front of the printer.
Reverse this procedure to insert the new toner cartridge.

Try to disconnect all cables from the printer and leave it off for about 30 seconds to clear the print job. Turn the printer back on and check the status lights, error light stop blinking then try connecting the printer back to the computer and try printing again.

Lex. x 5495 won't print from pc.It worked up to a short time ago.Will print from laptop.Driver,cables. connections are good, occosionally will print a remaining document from previous attempts first thing...


check all this possible problems and solutions:

-Check the printer status lights, or the status LCD screen. If there's a flashing light, or if the status screen shows an error, then it's your first clue to a problem. Most printer manuals have a diagnosis process for alerts.

-
common problems are related to toner or toner cartridges. If the problem is toner-related, check to see if the toner cartridge is empty or low. The printer warning should indicate this. Swap it for a new one and the unit should work.

-
check to be sure that it is connected to your computer. Personal printers connect via either a parallel or USB (universal serial bus) connector to the back of the printer. Follow the cable from the back of the printer to the back of the computer to make sure the connection is good.

-
When a printer acts up and there is no hardware problem, the solution is often driver-related. A printer driver is a piece of software that allows a computer to "talk" to a printer. It's a kind of translator. Occasionally, if a printer has worked previously, but suddenly doesn’t work with a newly installed program, there could be driver problems. To remedy this, download a driver from the printer maker's website, remove the old driver, and install the new driver. Drivers are normally available under the "support" area of a website.

Printer is not printing anything


Turn off the Printer, remove the paper tray in front, remove the toner and cover the toner with paper so light doesn't rain down on it! Take a flashlight and look inside to see if there is anything loose paper in the rollers or stuck inside. also look in the toner area too. Remove the rear cover also to inspect for objects. If all looks good then, unplug any cables going to the PC side. Wait 30 seconds. Then insert the paper tray first, the add paper to it. Insert back the toner Plugin back the power and then cables. Also Reboot the PC connected to it.

Now once the PC is back up and running turn on the printer. If you never done so update the drivers for the until form www.hp.com.

How to reset Black Toner Empty Message on 2430Dl


There are many problems like that and its not recommended to change toner from one printer to another.
but you should try: put the old toner (emty) in again, then turn off the printer, change toner and turn on printer again.
if thats not helping, then maybe you have a old FW so you can try to update the firmware.
