How do I take out the drum


When you change the toner cartridges you have to take out the whole Drum and Toner unit and unclip the toner from the drum unit. The Drum when you are replacing it is the DR7000 unit. Replace this unit and clip your toner unit back onto the new drum unit and re-install it in the printer and follow the instructions that came with the replacement drum unit to reset the drum counter.

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.

How to clear paper jam in HL 5040 laser printer


Clearing paper jam in a printer is simple almost seven step procedure.
i. Put off the printer.
ii. Open all the covers/shutters on the printer (usually one in front or top and one at the back.
iii. Now pull out the cartridge carefully.
iv. Site the paper that has jammed and pull it out in the opposite direction of its movement. (Pulling the paper in the opposite direction is important for the printer mechanism).
v. Return the cartridge and press it firmly inside.
vi. Close all covers.
Power on your printer and you should be able to print again.

Little dots on right side of margin (Brother HL-5040)


I would have guessed the trouble shooting steps you first performed. It could still be a bad imaging drum. Or a fuser. Not sure if this model has a replaceable fuser or not.

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.

My Brother 5040 laser printer is printing a bit faint in parts of the page. I have cleaned the rollers, shaken the toner cartridge and replaced the drum unit. The quality is better, but I am still missing...


number one are you using brother oem drum and toner? generic toner will give you all kinds of problems,.. if the the paper is damp or has moisture in it it will give you weird printing , ghosting parts missing etc. good luck brother sr tech

HL-2040 CHANGE TONER


I just had the same problem and fixed it. Hold down the blue "go" and red "job cancel" buttons at the same time for a few seconds. The printer churns into action and the green status light goes on. I was able then to print.
