Brother hl5250dn printer making noise during paper picking

Posted by on

  • nancyf296 Apr 20, 2009

    we also have the HL5250 and it also makes a lot of noisy when picking up the paper (if it picks up the paper) because sometimes it will not + it seems we can only put about 20 pcs of paper in the tray - anymore than that and it will not pickup it up.



    i almost ready to get rid of this noise maker and go back to the HP....



    any suggestions.

    I frequently have the same problem. Sometimes, if I hold the blue plastic lever down (front RH side) it will work. But, now, nothing works.

Check the rear end of the paper tray. There is an adjustable bar for paper size that is probably not locking into place. If this moves accidently when refilling the paper tray. it may cause a rather unnerving noise. You need to adjust this bar to fit snugly with the short edge of the paper stack.

I've had that challenge with mine also. The noise stops once I adjust the paper tray and make sure it's locked.

I ran across this yesterday. tried all the solutions to no avail. the paper would
start to feed but would not go very far and very noisy. when I took the tray out to
investicate the rollers, I noticed one of the white things behind the rollers was down instead of uplike the other two. I tried to push it up into place from the front.

I ended up taking out the toner and sticking my fingers in from behind and was able to snap it back into place. after that it printed just fine and no noise.

Paper tray doesn't raise on my brothers hl5250dn printer. Says papertray empty


I have had the same exact problem; make absolutely sure that the exit chute is seating properly. With the exit chute open (as if to clear a paper jam) actuate the white spring loaded clips that hold the exit chute, mine were not traveling to their full extension and by moving them a few times this resolved and the exit chute was held more firmly and the rollers spin the right direction.

Brother HL5250DN makes loud squeaking noise while printing. Sounds like crickets chirping.


This is not a problem but it can be early signs of the drum and rollers wearing out. When it does die, I suggest buying another printer.

My brother hl5250dn laser printer won't feed paper. all seems okay other than that.


Make sure the paper guide at the rear of the tray is not set too tight, it needs to be right on the mark for the size you are using. After that you can clean the rubber roller above where the paper sits with a towel damp with alcohol. If it still doesn't feed you may need a shop to check the roller drive gears and clutches.

Hi - I have a Brother HL5250DN with the paper light flashing but there is paper in the tray and now it wont print - can you help??


Is the Status light also red? This could mean other things than being out of paper. It could be a paper jam (most commonly anyway). Get a flashlight out and inspect it for jams.

I sprayed dust remover & now the printer won't print. the status light flashes red & the toner, drum & paper lights flashes yellow (hl5250dn)


You may have blown dust or paper shard into one of the optical sensors. These sometimes are used to sense paper position and carriage position. Try cleanig again and pay attention to these sensors.

You may have to use a true Brother toner cartridge as I have the same problem with me MFC 8500. If I use a compatible cartridge it clicks and if I use a geniune Brothr cartridge it does. Brother direct brought this to my attention.

Paper Light Blinking


make sure the rear part of your paper tray is not pressed too tightly against rear of paper. it will prevent the paper from raising up fully to the feed roller. you can also try cleaning the feed roller if that doesn't do it.
