Brother Drum Reset Instructions


The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
Press the cover release button and then open the front cover of the printer.


Press and hold down Go button until all 4 LEDs are lit. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.

Close the front cover.
Make sure that the Drum LED is now off.
Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.

HL-5250 report shows fuser and laser life at 0% and PF kit 1 at 12%


The fuser is a separate component to the drum and toner in this printer. It has a much longer life than them but will run out eventually. Sadly a fuser unit is not a commercially available consumable for this printer either. I would recommend contatcing a printer technicain or Brother directly for a quote on replacing this part.

3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual.

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!


When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

My hl 5250 dn printer is printing a wide horizontal line on the leftside about 1/3 way in. How do I fix?


The problem mostl likely is that the handle for cleaning the corona wire isn't at it's start location. You can fix this by simply open the machine, unmount the toner/drum package and move the corona cleaner (the blue/green/grey marker) on the drum unit to the start position so the two arrows face eachother. This should solve the problem.

Yeah, I have the HL-5250DN printer. The light


Hi there -

The reason the drum light keeps flashing is that you have to "reset" the machine after you've installed a new drum. To do this, I believe all you have to do is make sure the printer is on and then push and hold down the "GO" button a few seconds and then the flashing will stop. This will "reset" the printer to recognize you've installed a new drum. I'm going from memory on that, but I believe that's correct. It's a really simple solution. Good luck!

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.
