Question about Brother HL 5150D Laser Printer

Brother HL 5150D not printing unless I keep pressing Go

My printer will print 1-2 pages and then the status light will go red and the paper light blinks but there is plenty of paper in the printer. If I press go, it will print another 1-2 pages and then stop again. I tried changing the toner with no results.

Its not the problem of toner cartridge.its the problem of gears which pulls the paper they r worn out or may be cracked internally.exactly what happens when you u give the print for the first time the printer gets command and the gears starts spinning and the paper gets pulled because it gets a pressure internally and after 2 pages that pressure gets low and it stops pulling the paper.some times changing the paper thickness solves the problem temporvarily .i mean use the thick quality paper instead of thin.

How to find number of pages printed from a brother HL 5250N


Turn on the printer.
Once it is on and the status light is on, press the Go button 6 time. Status light turns yellow and printer will print off internal configuration - including number of pages printed. Should be 3 pages. This report also includes the percentage used of toner, drum, laser, and fuser.

It may some paper jam inside your printer . open the front cover pull out the cartridge and look any jammed paper is there or not. if not the the problem may came from your toner drum.

Can the Brothers HL 2040 handle printing 65lb


It probably can but only from the front slot, the paper tray has to bend the paper around the roller in the front when feeding.

The red lite indicates one of the following needs to be looked at:

Cover open (Front cover) Close the front cover.

Cover open (Jam clear cover) Close the jam clear cover of the fuser unit.

Memory full - Press the go button.

Print overrun - Press the go button.

Clean drum unit - Clean the corona wire.

I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  2. Hint
  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).

    Not printing


    The red light, along with the paper light being lit indicates that it is having a problem feeding the paper OR it is set wrong for duplexing. Check your manual on page 3-4 or download a manual at:

    I can't tell which of the error conditions fits your situation, but this should put you on the correct path to figure it out.
