Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer
After clearing a paper jam, I put the paper tray back in and when the printer resets, I get a grinding of gears on the left side. I thought I had to do with damage to my toner/drum, so I replaced both with new units and when I turn it on, the same grinding noise. It sounds like it is trying to cycle through but gears are stuck? I am having the same problem, I read through other troubleshooting solutions and tried not only unplugging the device but unplugging the USB cord also, when I do that and turn it back on, the status light is green and the drum light flashes. Then once I try to print the grinding noise starts, nothing prints and the status light turns red and the paper light flashes. So I don't know if I'm having trouble with the drum, or something else. There is no paper stuck I have taken apart everything I can and checked and cleaned everything!

Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Pull out a paper cassette, lift up the printer and under you see paper feed roller (it is rubber), just clean roller with cloth and water or alcohol.
