Question about Brother HL-5240 Laser Printer

2 Answers

Hi Today one of the two HL-5240 decided it wouldn?t print, with a solid RED Status LED. After trying a few of the press-here-on-off solutions, it happens it was a paper jam. NOW the printer still will not do a complete power ON cycle. The Status light will go green, if I try to print, it will go solid yellow and do nothing ? not a sound. If there is something still jammed, I can?t find it. Can?t get it to print a Status (start up/Go) page either. If I press the Job Cancel button the status LED will blink red/yellow/green continuously. I?ve interchanged the toner and drum from the working printer to this printer and can?t get it to work either. Thanks for your help Luis

    Hi tbreeze47,

    Thanks for your reply. No I dont think is a toner count problem, I never had the toner or drum led on to begin with. Anyway I have used 2 different toners/drum and still wont do a full start up when you turn printer on.

    thanks

What you will want to do is go into the users guide and find the reset factory defaults option usually it involves holding a button or two while starting the device however are sometimes very different

Here is an excerpt from pricegrabber.com:
Found that unit will run fine past its replace date just fine. you must reset the unit and look at a message that warns the drum life is coming to a close. We have done more prints like this then when the 1st message appeared. It looked like these would be compatible with dr-510 Not true. What a expensive lesson.
Here is how to reset it:

My Brother 5240 laser printer has a red status light when i turn it on. I hit cancel job, and the light turns green. however, when i print a file, the file goes into the print queue for a few seconds then...


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.

What does the red status light mean.


Hi,
Unplug the Printer and again Turn it back ON after few minutes. A Solid Red Light Status means that, more than often it is for Paper Jam.
Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The red lite indicates one of the following needs to be looked at:

Cover open (Front cover) Close the front cover.

Cover open (Jam clear cover) Close the jam clear cover of the fuser unit.

Memory full - Press the go button.

Print overrun - Press the go button.

Clean drum unit - Clean the corona wire.

New HL-5240 printer red status light upon powering up


My HL-5240 did the same thing, Here is what I found:

Look at the back of the printer. Pull down the back cover. Look to the right and the left of the exposed internals of the printer and there should be another handle/knob you can pull down. Pull these both down simultaneously and check to make sure there isn't a piece of paper in there! This was a shock to me! My office printer was held up for days until I found this hidden door in the back! I felt like an idiot that it was from a stupid paper jam!
