SOURCE: Paper jam with Brother HL-2030 laser printer

Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.

SOURCE: 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!

This usually means your printer is out of paper or there is a paper jam somewhere.

SOURCE: How do you replace the drum properly on a Brother

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.

We have a Brother 5240. We inserted a new drum and toner and the drum light still blinks. Can you advise what the problem is. Thank you


Before you replace the drum you have to clear the error message. To do that you have to Make sure that the printer is turned on and the Drum LED is blinking. Press the front cover release button and then open the front cover. Press and hold down Go for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all four LEDs are lit, release Go.
Here's a link to the Brother website on how to replace the drum with images and instructions.

I have a brother hl-5240 printer and I am trying to print label where do I put the label? the printer paper red light comes whe I put the label sheet in the regular paper tray. I cannot find another place...


The label sheet needs to go in the front slot, if there isn't a slot on the front, then you grab the notches on each side of the front door and just open the feed tray.

there is a second piece of paper stuck in the machine.
open the back flap, look at the diagram, and pull out a piece of hardware
behind this hardware, all crumpled up, not visible, is a jammed piece of paper.
