Question about Brother HL-5240 Laser Printer
How do I change the drum in it myself?
First check whether it is possible to buy a new drum for your model, if possible buy a new drum then remove the toner from your printer, separate the drum unit from the toner, if you check thoroughly the left and right sides of the drum unit how the drum has been fixed in to it you will be able to find the way remove drum from the unit, then replace the new drum and fix it. Don not tough the edge wiper blade, rotate the drum and check whether it rotating smoothly in both direction.

SOURCE: The drum light came on
I continued looking and found where someone else had the same problem. I opened the front cover, held down the go key for 10 seconds and closed the door. This reset something because it works now.

Chances are if your drum requires cleaning, it could be faulty or at the end of its life. However if you must clean it DO NOT use any cleaning agents , chemicals or water. Use only the softest lint free cloth you can find and give it a gentle wipe over

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.
