  • I have a Brother HL-5240 printer. I'm trying to place a TN3130 cartridge in it but it wont fit properly and won't print. I have forgotten the number of my previous cartridge but I remember it was deeper and slotted in perfectly?

    HL-5240 toner won't fit

    The Brother TN3130 is the correct cartridge for your Brother HL5240 printer.

    The TN3130 cartridge should slot into your printer easily.

    You may need to refer to your printer manual for installation guidance.

  • Will the TN3280 toner cartridge fit both the DR3200 and DR3100 drum units? I'm being told the TN3280 is "duo" and will fit the HL5350DN model printer and the HL5240 , making the cartridges inter-changeable?

    Brother HL-5240 toner and drum

    No, the TN3280 toner cartridge will only fit a DR3200 drum. The Brother HL-5240 printer can only use a Brother DR3100 drum unit as listed on this page and the toner and drum units are not cross-compatible with the Brother HL-5350DN printer model.

Brother HL-5240 Printer Review

Expert review of the Brother HL-5240 printer 21 April 2011

Our Verdict:

The International Brother Company is not exactly the most common in the printer market. While names like Samsung and HP may be more common, anyone looking for reliability may want to give the HL series of Brother printers a closer look. The Brother HL-5240 is a workhorse of a printer that is meant to make print after print for years on end, and still keep producing. While the features are limited, there are a few defining aspects that make it a great choice for home and small offices.

Design

This laser printer is a simple box-design with no screen or advanced input buttons. It is just over a foot tall, a foot long, and just under a foot deep. Along the back of the machine are slots for both USB connections and parallel ports for older computers. This printer also has a high-capacity feeding tray which is capable of handling lengthy orders as well as network compatibility when connected to a router. It produces a maximum resolution of 1,200 dpi for standard legal and A4 sized paper.

Advantages

The pros of the HL-5240 are simple and apparent. This printer was built to be a cheap and reliable machine for home offices and small businesses. Brother rates this printer at just over 30 pages per minute with a single colour and standard printing style. After testing, the printer still averages out to a respectable 28 pages per minute. Compared to any other printer of a comparable price, this printer produces crisp lettering with no shading or blurring. Brother has also won numerous awards for customer service, satisfaction, and their equipment's reliability.

Disadvantages

The strength of this printer, its simplicity, is also its weakness. There are very few features and unique qualities that come along with the HL-5240. It does not support two-sided printing without manually pulling out pages one by one and then re-feeding them back in. There is no support for printing out labels, letterheads, or any other unique jobs. It also does not have a decent screen or set of buttons to detect problems. One must rely on the computer software provided to discover any paper jams or low Brother HL-5240 toner problems. After a few years of use, many consumers do report that the quality of prints slowly start to decline in terms of clean lettering and dpi.
