I have a Brother HL-5240 laser printer at work, when the printer has not been used for a while, for instance, first thing in the morning. The printer will print 2 thick wavy lines probably about an inch...


Hi,
there is no problem with printer cartridge, but there is a problem with printer drum unit.
Open the front cover and pool out the drum unit. You will see the blue arrow on the one side on the top of unit. Slide this arrow from left to right few times. If this doesn't help you can get a small brush and try to clean the thin wire (transfer wire) inside the unit and discharge grid below the wire. This should help.
good luck

You will need to use the manual feed slot which is above the paper tray.

The manual feed is meant for labels and envelopes

It may some paper jam inside your printer . open the front cover pull out the cartridge and look any jammed paper is there or not. if not the the problem may came from your toner drum.

Prints thick black lines


Hello, Andrea.

Sounds like either your printer needs a new fuser assembly (If the teflon roller gets scratched or starts to disintegrate you will get lines or black marks on the page) or you need a replacement toner.

Hope this helps.

Brother printer prints solid black on one side


This is caused by a faulty drum/charging circuit or laser unit. The drum is positively charged with static electricity and a laser draws the image onto the drum (changing the charge to negative) the toner is positively charged to it will adhere to the negatively charged image which is now on the drum. your problem is that the drum is either not being positively charged or the laser is charging the whole drum. There is a corona wire on the drum, remove the drum, sweep the corona wire (there will be a tab that moves left and right) and try it again. next step is to replace the drum. if you dont have a spare drum or one from another printer then it may be more cost effective to buy another printer as drums are quite expensive and it may not even be the problem.
