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.

I refilled the ink tank immediately after seeing low blank ink flashing on its window. The low blank ink continuously flashes even after I refilled it. What to do?

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.

Have you tried shutting it down completely? Also, double check to see if the inside of the printer is completely clean.

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.

Strong Noise on Brother HL-5240


Make sure the end tab in the paper tray is not too tight. The tab where you set the paper length. The paper should have about 1/16 inch space and not hold the paper too tight.

Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer Paper jam


Most likely something has broken in the loading gear. Never pull paper against the normal flow, of course, you know that now. Unless you can locate the broken part and replace it, I'm afraid there's not much you can do other than manually feed the paper.
