    Ok, I’m going to try and explain this without pictures:



    Take out the toner and look at it. One end has 2 silver screws in it. As you are looking at the toner from the front (transfer roller pointing at you) the screws are to the right. Remove these screws and so remove the face-plate. There is a white gear-wheel (without cogs/teeth) that looks a little like a Y. This simply lifts off; behind it is also a metal spring. Remove this gear and the spring. Now replace the face-plate and the 2 screws without the gear and the spring. That’s it. Put the toner back in and print until no longer possible as the light will not show when it really is empty.



    Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Trouble with pdf docs

If your pdf's are saved on your pc or mac and they print fine, then it is probably a problem with firewall or av. allowing printing from internet. Check PDF program settings for port number to exclude or accept in firewall or check firewall and add pdf program to list of exceptions.

Try this....
1: Turn off power and remove toner/drum
2: Tape the little spring loaded lever just inside the printer on the upper left hand side in the *DOWN* position! Do not replace drum yet and...
3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual.
4: Turn off printer, remove tape from lever, replace drum and turn back on.

When I print one side of the paper is very light, how do i correct this


Hi, The scanner laser is most likley dirty,
if you take the print cartridge out of the unit and look for a small **** of glass (normally found above where the print unit sits) just give that a small wipe with a soft cloth to remove any toner particles or dust, and your printing sould come good.
hope this helps

Brother HL-5250DN Laser Printer TONER LIGHT ON & NO PRIN PAGE


When the toner light is on this means the toner is empty and needs to be replaced before it can print again. Replace the toner and you will be able to print again.

Drum and error light are on - got new cartridge - installed as directed - blue light will not stay on - printer will not print - red and orange lights will not go out


I can't recall the buttons on Brother laser printers but leaving the cartridge door open and pressing and holding down one of the buttons for about 5 seconds will clear the drum light error.

I've done this to clear the same error on aBrother HL5250DN laser printer.

If this doesn't work please post your printer's model number.

My broher 5250DN keeps showing toner needed, but i've replaced it


I just had the same problem. We have several of these in our office, but switching toner cartridges made no difference. Then I saw this site: http://www.oasis-imaging.com/images/pdf/cart_inst/TN580.pdf

I did steps 14-16, which takes 5-10 minutes. I put the toner back in the printer, turned it on, and it works perfectly now. Give that a try!

call brother and tell them that the drum is shadowing and needs to be replaced or you can look in your area for a cartridge World and pay them to remanufacture that drum and If you are going to be printing check you really need to find a printer that has micr toner it has more metal ion the toner which makes it burn hotter.The toner that you are using may possibly be able to be lifted and info on the check could be changed.Bgcw@msn.com
