Default Jammed laser printer?

I have a 3-year old Brother HL2140 - which is printing OK until the last few weeks. The paper is always jammed halfway right after one print, or even the first print. I had to yank the paper out manually with the toner smearing over it.

I checked the troubleshooting manual, but I still get all the jammings.

Is the drum unit broken? Obviously, dismantling the thing and tinker around will be a risky job, and I rather send it to a qualified technician.

It prints half way through, then the printer stop printing and the Error LED lit up. It won't print afterwards, unless I have to yank the paper out again, with the toner smearing all over the paper and it becomes rolled and crumpled. I suspect that one of the gears inside the drum or something else got stuck.

I was hoping that it's the drum fault so that I don't have to replace the printer, but when I checked online for drum replacements, it's as expensive as a new printer alone!

I scouted for some drum kits, hoping that it's a good replacement.

To my disappointment, the drum kits are as expensive as buying a new one. A new one has a full duplex printing and stuff.

Psykotik: Lol at the scene. Reminds me of the Family Guy's scene as well, Stewie and Brian brought that vinyl and broke it all into pieces.

The_YongGrand, looks like you will need to change the drum. I think it's going to cost you a pretty penny. You might as well run over to PC Fair (ends today) and pick yourself a new printer, cause it's probably cheaper to buy a new printer and change the drum. When I was there on Friday, there were some pretty good deals from HP, Canon, Oki and Brother.

Ya, I almost took that bat over there and hit my printer...

Btw, I'm thinking of changing the entire printer. Jusco sold a new one with duplex printing at the same cost of the old one bought in 2009.

The thing is, how am I going to dispose the old broken one? Are there centers which I can dump this thing?

Good point. Hmm.. Well, I know that All IT Hypermarket collects old or non-working PCs for disposal. Maybe you can drop your printer off at one of their branches?

Yeah, I'll send it there. Hopefully they will dispose them properly.

The duplex laser printer sounds tempting - print two sides. Good for printing datasheets.
