If you are using a generic toner, replace it with cartridge from Brother. Many of these are caused by using a refilled cartridge or a generic cartridge. Use a cleaning sheet and run it though a couple of times, if this does not clear it up you need a new cartridge.

Toner light comes on and it won't print


WHen the toner light comes on this means you need to replace the toner cartridge because its empty. The toner its the powder that is used to put on the paper, you will no longer be able to print until you replace it with a new one.

3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual.

New toner, starts, but STATUS button lights red and toner orange light comes on


Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

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.

Status red and amber Toner light


This problem you are getting is to replace the toner cartridge. Have you recently changed the drum unit as well. If so exchange it back to the other one.

After installing new toner or full toner cartridge and removing the yellow plastic cover press the go button this should start the printer on a cycle and add the toner. If this doesn't work then the toner sensor has malfunctioned and will need replacing. This will in turn out way the cost of a new machine.

Hope this helps and not too late for you.

Thanks Jason

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?

Brother 5240 laser printer changed toner still wont work.


This works on several different Brother Printers to get rid of toner/drum empty errors:

1. Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps.
2. Turn the printer off.
3. Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.
4. Release the 'go' button.
5. Press the 'go' button 2 times.
6. Pause.
7. Press the 'go' button 5 times.
8. The toner light should be off.
9. The paper light should be on or flashing [doesn't happen on all].
10. Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.
