Paper curling is usually due to paper that has absorbed too much moisture. Try a new **** of paper that is sealed and I would bet that the problem will disappear.

How do you replace the drum properly on a Brother HL-5240


Out with the old and in with the new, you remove the toner and drum together, remove the toner from the old drum by pressing the blue lever on the side, install the toner in the new drum, and re install in the printer. With the front door open press the go button til all lights flash and then close the door, the new drum is reset.

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.

Sounds like you have a bad fuser assembly if the drum unit didn't solve the probelm.

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?

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!
