The blinking orange light could mean one or more of the following: -Home position error -Waste ink full error -Temperature sensor error -Printing position correction error -Cleaning error -Printer memory error I would probably clean the waste ink tank first. Make sure you unplug it first. Take the cartridge out and clean real good at the bottom.

Printer will not print.


Fixing annoying little issues with these machines is difficult due to the compact design. I would hazard a guess that there is either a paper jam due to a paper fragment or foreign object obstructing the paper feed, or there is a fragment inside obstructing the printhead. To remove the first - turn it upside down and give a few GENTLE whacks on the bum. If anything substantial falls out, try printing. To tackle the second open the cover and let the printhead come to centre (you should take it off battery for this), then check each end of the cavity looking for a black ink soaked peice of paper. If you find one, remove it and go looking again. If neither approach works for you, try carefully feeding a strip of light card at intervals through the paper path, this will help locate anything caught in the feed roller. Good Luck.

Can't print


It flashes orange for a few seconds, and then back to green, and then back to orange every few seconds. I can't shut it off unless I unplug it. It also makes a horrible racket.

Brother HL-5240 drum light flashing


Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J

Had it a while and it stopped working.


Come on copier tec you should know better, need to know which light is showing orange, Drum,toner,paper,status?

Intuition tells me that you have a orange toner light and a red status showing, and you are using a non OEM toner, but thats guessing.
