Badly jammed Brother HL 5040 B&W laser printer

I have a paper jammed Brother HL 5040 B&W laser printer. The jammed is broken off inside the printer and there is no access to remove the paper. It can't even be seen so it will need to be taken apart. I am looking for a free guide on how to do it and put it back together.

If you remove the drum unit and cartridge it will all come out in one go.

Open the right hand end. The black T700 cartrige will be seen and it looks as if it is screwed in. However it is NOT just get a firm grip and pull the entire unit out (It snaps in and is quite tight... keep pulling it will come and there are no clips to break as you pull)

As it is removed, all the paper will come out in one go. A bit daunting if you have not done it before. Refit is the exact reverse, push it in quite firmly and it will latch back in place with a pleasing clunk! Hope that helps.

Brother Laser 5040 says there is no paper when there is plenty of paper. Have checked for jams and recently replaced drum and toner.


Unplug the printer for about ten minutes. This will clear the NVRAM in the printer. That is where the paper jam's are stored if they get stuck in the printer.

I have a paper jam on a HL-5040 where I can see the paper under the toner/drum. The Brother site suggests pulling the paper up and out once the paper tray is removed, but my sheet of paper won't budge at...


I consulted the Brother site again but this time I researched just how to remove the drum. This page has nice drawings that show how to just pull it straight out! They explained the blue button on the right is just for holding the toner in the drum. They also showed, a very important piece of information, where to place the hands as well. I did it slowly because the jammed paper seemed to be 'stuck' to it. It came out easily, with no real force required. I removed the paper and slid the drum back into place. Quite simple once I could see how to do it without risking damage to the printer!
