Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Won't print after warms up

Two year old machine. Prints first few copies very well, but after a few pages stops--or won't start--and all the lights flash. If I turn it off for several minutes, it will print a few copies again. My guess is that something stops working when it heats up.

Print function is not working properly. I have a Ricoh Afcicio 1013F. It prints a few pages then has an error msg.


Does the machine copy okay? If you copy several pages, do they all come out normally, or do you get an error message like when you print?

What is the error message that shows up? If the machine prints a few pages before the error comes up, and it works fine when you are copying, the problem is likely either with your network or with the application you are trying to print from. Depending on what the error message says, it will help to isolate the problem.

It could also be the print driver itself. You can go to Ricoh-USA.com to the Downloads section and either update or reinstall the print driver if nothing else works.

Problem printing multiple copies of a single page document


I have a similar problem with an old HP LJ1300. They have not updated the driver correctly and don't intend to fix it. I can't find any reference to AcuLaser C900 on Epson's support page. So maybe they stopped supporting the C900.

Sharp AR168D won't copy


There are small mirrors on the copy lamp, wipe with a clean dry soft cloth. Remove the drum unit and wipe upper part where the drum unit was and make sure the area is clean.

pad.

2->1Side: Scans both sides of the original and prints each of them
on separate two papers. (SCX-6322DN only)
2->2Side: Scans both sides of the original and prints them on both
sides of a paper, this function produce exactly the same print out
from the original. (SCX-6322DN only)

Prints java script instead of highlighted page


First, you probably should not stop the printer after it starts printing, it always creates problems. Second, you should clear your browser history and then you should select the range of pages to print on your print properties menu. If this does not work try reinstalling the print drivers.

Will not print


Yeah thats an easy one. Your really out of toner, the density sensor is seeing a light development patch, and the firmware ( machine operating software) does not have a clue what to do.
I suspect, ohhhh about 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999 percent sure if you replace the toner cartridge your machine will warm up, set up in a minute or 2 and run like normal.
I have seen that time and again on that machine, The software sometimes simply doesnt know what to do with a light copy indication.
The out of toner sensor is a window type sensor, so if there is a little remaining toner on the sensor, yet the density sensor looking at the patch on the drum is light, the software has no clue what to do, so the machine runs, and runs, and runs, and runs...... A new toner cartridge is a almost 1000000000000000000000000000000000 percent fix.

: The problem occurs because of the trickle development system in the machine, making extended lengths of black and white copies / prints does not allow the black developer housing to purge itself of excess waste Toner (Dry Ink) and Developer. There are two solutions for the problem:
  • Make 1,000 copies / prints of a black and white job, then make 150 copies / prints of full color. Continue making 1,000 copies / prints of the black and white job, then 150 full color, and so on, until the entire black and white job is complete.
  • Make extended jobs in groups of 100 by making 100 copies / prints of the black and white job, then allowing the machine to cycle down (return to 'Ready') and making the next 100 copies / prints. Continue in this pattern until the entire black and white job is complete.
or
  1. Power OFF the machine.

  2. Wait 30 seconds.
  3. Power ON the machine.

Cannot print only one copy; prints the first page only . . . over and over again


Check the menu and got to printing options, it may be that the number of copies got changed, you can set it up to where it can make up to 999 copies!!!!! why that option is on there is a mystery.
