Question about Brother HL-5250dnt Laser Printer

HL 5250 dnt

The toner light has come on the printer, I changed the toner but the light will not go off and the printer will not print. We had this problem before but don't know how it was fixed. Resetting the power does not help. I have taken the toner out and replaced it numerous times thinking it will click into place.

Re: HL 5250 dnt

Hello Imarsh1 it seems to me that the problem is intermittent. try removing the toner and the catridge, vaccum or clean toner residue of the visible inside of the printer, just in case is a sensor problem. also check to see if you have replaced the printer tonner with the right one by checking the model no for compactibility.

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.

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.

Brother 5250DN printer noise

Check my solution here:

Here's a solution for you with Brother HL 5250 D/DN/DNT

Change the paper setting tab in the tray to make sure you have a small gap between the top part of the paper and the bottom part.

so if this is the old settings : |paper| --> you want to make it: | paper| so you can have slide the paper back and forth.

DON'T adjust the setting to the next paper size because the roller wont catch the paper if it slide too far.

Good luck to all.
