Question about Brother HL 1250 Laser Printer
The red alarm button stays on constantly and I cannot print. I have changed the paper, and the toner but it still does not work. I believe there is a problem with the paper pickup. Even when I hand feed it one sheet of paper it still will not work and the red light stays on.
Try shutting the printer completely down & unplug power. then plug power back in and while holding down all buttons on the printer control panel, turn it back on. this should put it into a self diagnostic mode that prints out just about everything the printer can do, including a sample page. Also, be sure all rollers are clean & trays are completely closed before restarting. If the printer works when you do this, you should most liely check all settings in the software package (driver) or perhaps reinstall the drivers. If this is necessary, be sure to download the latest drivers from the Brother website.

I knew I had to take out the toner cartridge but I couldn't remember if it was one piece or two. I went to over a dozen websites before I found some details beyond "Take out the cartridge." However the image was not clear. I asked for help from my wife, who knows less aobut computers than I do. She said, "It's definitely two pieces," and took the toner cartridge out, whereupon I removed the paper stuck in there and put the toner cartridge back in. Moral of the story: When even the instructions fail, ask you wife. Thank you, dear!

Help me, please . Red status light on. PC recognises printer. Nothing happening. Toner was on for a few weeks. But now new toner cartridge and still solid red light. What is this?

I have saeen this happen and there is usually a paper jam somewhere in the machine. Remember, it doesn't take much of a piece of paper to jam. Use a flashlight and look inside your printer closely. Also check your toner supply level.
