I am afraid your gonna have to open it up, forget the electronics - concentrate on the optical/mechanical sensors around the mechanics.

If all else fails buy a Samsung/HP laser printer

  • A Paper Jam has occurred.
  • The Front, Top, or Back Cover is open.

The Status LED light is Red and the Toner light(s) are Red

  • The Toner cartridge(s) that are Red need to be replaced. (Printing is not available)
  • The Toner cartridge(s) are not installed properly.

Printer stops when printing should begin with red light in status


There is a few reasons that cause the status light to turn red, paper jam, paper empty, toner cartridge empty, cover open and waste toner cartridge full. The PC Smart panel utility should give you an exact fault condition. Hope this helps.

After printing several hundred sheets, status light went red. There was no paper jam. Let printer "cool down" overnight. Status light still red. Drum has never been replaced. Toner light is on. However, in...


Well, if the toner light is on, you're probably out of toner and the only reason it ran, was because it was low but not completely depleted.

Try new toner drum off of Ebay or Amazon for the best prices for your brother printer.

It doesnt print anything. the status light is red. i dont know whats wrong


A red Status light means 'paper jam'. A red light corresponding to one or more of the toner cartridges means empty cartridge. A flashing red light corresponding to one or more toner cartridges means low toner.

HL-5140 Brother laser printer red status light remains on.


The red lite indicates one of the following needs to be looked at:

Cover open (Front cover) Close the front cover.

Cover open (Jam clear cover) Close the jam clear cover of the fuser unit.

Memory full - Press the go button.

Print overrun - Press the go button.

Clean drum unit - Clean the corona wire.

Can't print because of toner light.


This problem sounded familiar and that's because it is.

Read this and try the drum resetting procedure, it's likely the same:

Help!


It sounds as if the cartridge you purchased was a remanufactured or self filled. The error light your having is toner cartridge related. The left side (not the side white the white brother label over the fill cap) of the cartridge has a resetting apparatus that resets the toner page count. I have included a link to a distributor site which has instructions at the bottom of the page for resetting the flag on the cartridge to trip the reset again.

If you remove the cartridge and drum from the machine you can also check to make sure the lever on the left sidewall of the printer that resets the cartridge is not damaged. Look 3 inches inward and 1 inch down on the black sidewall. The little lever should flip downward and rebound up freely. I can't remembeber for sure but you may be able to power on the machine with the door open and drum only installed and flip the lever for a manual reset. Not sure now as each brother is a little different. If not, use the link provided below.

Hope this helps you.
