Since when this problem arised, have you install a new cartridge?

Try to unplug the USB connection.
Try to turn off and reinstall the cartridge again. Also shutdown the PC. Then power on PC & then Printer.

Let me know the further status so I can investigate further and fix the problem.

    May be the motor need to replace and the printer need Repair and Service. Check it out and take it to nearest dealer for service. Please vote Helpful or FixYa, otherwise leave the solution as it is.

Brother HL 5170DN Printer Toner error


Trick Brother HL 5170DN printer into think there is toner left. Rather than run out for a new toner cartridge use a small (.5 x .5 in.) piece of black electrical tape to cover the sensor hole on the non-gear side of the cartridge. By covering the hole the printer is fooled into thinking the hopper is full of toner.

Brother 5250dn and all light are blinking


That series of lights indicates a main circuit board failure. You will need a shop to replace the main logic PCB. Could be caused by anything, static shock, bad input power from power strip or power failure, just plain CPU failure. If it's under warranty, 1 year since purchase, you need a Brother service center, out of warranty a new printer would cost less than repair.

Extra paper being fed after print job


Try a test page from the control panel, if this works properly you probably have an issue with the software of the printer. Reload the printer as if it was a brand new machine.

If you see the service call indication above, follow the steps below:
1 Take out the DIMM (Dual Inline Memory Module) from your printer, if you have a DIMM installed.
2 Turn off the power switch, wait a few seconds, and then turn it back on and try to print again.
If you cannot clear the error and see the same service call indication after turning the printer back on,
call your dealer or a Brother authorized service representative.
When you press the Go and the Job Cancel buttons together, the LEDs will light up with one of the
combinations shown in Table 1. See Table 1: LED indications while pressing Go and Job Cancel on page
3-6 to identify the error.

Something has failed that the printer can't recover from.
