Is it the printer beeping or do you have the printer connected to a UPS and the UPS is beeping? I have run into this with users all the time who do not realize you cannot plug a printer into a UPS.

Tried to print using my MFC-685CW. Was told that my ink cartridge was empty. Put in a new cartridge (LC51BK). Was told that the cartridge container was now empty. What to do?

STEP 1: Verify the firmware version of your Brother machine:


a. Press the OK key 2 times.


b. Press the UP ARROW (+) key 5 times.


c. Press the OK key 2 times.


The firmware version will be displayed on the LCD.


- If the firmware version is 1.01 or 1.02, go to STEP 2: Update the firmware of your Brother machine.


- If the firmware version is 1.08 or above, go to STEP 4: Toner usage and yields.



STEP 2: Update the firmware of your Brother machine:


A firmware update tool is available that will allow you to update your Brother machine with the most recent version firmware by downloading updates over the Internet. The updated firmware will assist in optimizing toner usage.


The Brother printer driver must be installed and working properly prior to the update of the Brother machine. The firmware update tool also requires that you have Java installed on your computer. The firmware update tool will not work if Java is not installed. If you do not have Java installed or are not sure if it is installed on your computer, you may download Java from


To update the firmware, follow the instructions listed below:


DO NOT interrupt the process or turn off the machine once the update has begun. Doing so may corrupt the memory on the machine and may require the machine to be serviced in order to correct the issue.


1. Open an Internet web browser and go to


2. Select your country and language.


3. Type in the model of your machine or select it from the appropriate section (Ex: HL3070CW in the Color Printer section).


4. Select Downloads.


5. Select your OS and language for step 1 and 2 on the web site. Click the Search button.


6. The Firmware Update Tool will be listed at the bottom of the web page. Click Information & Download.


7. Click the Download button and I Accept if you accept the license agreement.


8. A dialog box appears with options for Run, Save, or Cancel. Select Run. You may also download the firmware update tool for later use by selecting Save.

Remove the Toner Drum unit and look for a little blue tab. Slide it back and forth a couple of times to clean a corona wire and see if that helps.

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.

Have you replaced the drum and toner? It sounds as if the printer is saying it's time. The motor constantly running usually means it's trying to add toner to satisfy the toner sensor, but it's empty.
