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!

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

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.

This is a paper jam error. Try reloading the paer if you can not find any paper stuck inside the printer. Then press the start button.

Printed paper is stalling within the output.


That's a common problem on that machine, those rollers at the exit get coated with toner and fuser oil, so they have no grip to pull the paper thru. If you dampen a rag with alcohol and power off the printer, each time you turn it on or close the front door the rollers turn and you hold the damp rag against the exit rollers one at a time to clean them...

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.
