If printer is blinking all the LEDs then try to turn off the power switch, wait a few seconds, and then turn it back on and try to print again. If all the LEDs are still blinking, press Go and Job Cancel buttons together and let me know what LEDs stay on.

SOURCE: After reloading paper in my HL-5250DN, it will not

I usually find that when this happens the paper jam is in the back part of the printer. Open the back lid (opposite side from the logo) and check in there. It may take a bit of force since that window is not open often. If that doesn't help, power down, keep off for 30 sec, and power back up.

You may also want to make sure that your printer tray on your computer is not frozen -- it may failed to release the spooled pages, etc., depending on when it froze.

Hi there -

The reason the drum light keeps flashing is that you have to "reset" the machine after you've installed a new drum. To do this, I believe all you have to do is make sure the printer is on and then push and hold down the "GO" button a few seconds and then the flashing will stop. This will "reset" the printer to recognize you've installed a new drum. I'm going from memory on that, but I believe that's correct. It's a really simple solution. Good luck!

I've installed a new drum AND a new toner cartridge. have followed all directions to reset the drum and the light still flashes and I can't print, this is for a brother HL-5250DN printer


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.

Brother 5250dn and all light are blinking


That series of lights indicates a main circuit board failure. You will need a shop to replace the main logic PCB. Could be caused by anything, static shock, bad input power from power strip or power failure, just plain CPU failure. If it's under warranty, 1 year since purchase, you need a Brother service center, out of warranty a new printer would cost less than repair.

I have a Brother HL-5250, drum light on, not printing


When the drum light is on solid, it's time for a new drum, if you have a new drum, just open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash and the drum is reset. Press the go button 3 times and it will print a sheet showing the drum status.

Suddenly our 4 month old brother 5250dn laser


All lights on , you need to press the go and cancel buttons at the same time and see which lights are on, I'm sorry, I confused this model with another...you need to press both buttons to see which lights are on when both go and cancel are held. It sounds though like a main logic PCB problem, let me know what lights are on when you hold both buttons, there is no error that matches what you said earlier, but I told you the wrong buttons...

Drum


You just need to reset your drum counter. To do that, open up the printer and hold down the Go button for a few seconds, until the LED lights all light up (the toner, drum, and paper lights all should turn yellow). That should do the trick!
