Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Red light only

We have a red light on and no other lights on. Also, we've been having trouble with the pages making it all the way through. It prints everything on the page and then gets jammed at the last second! What the heck?

The button becomes red once I print a test page


The red light means out of paper or ink ribbon. Some people chose not to use the ink ribbon and get thermal direct paper which requires no ink ribbon but The red light means out of paper or ink ribbon. Some people chose not to use the ink ribbon and get thermal direct paper which requires no ink ribbon but the printer has to be told by the driver not to expect ribbon or the red light will come on. Also not having the correct paper height set in the driver will make the red light come on as well so check the advanced tab in the properties of the driver then click printing defaults. In the ZDesigner driver height and width are entered there. In the zebra universal, its the same path but one extra click. Click paper output and enter the size.

One label prints, then red light comes on. We


Solid red light. This indicates the printer is in an error state and will not print until the error is cleared. Check to make sure the printer is not out of labels or out of ribbon if it is a TLP model.
A solid red light will occur if
  • the printer is out of labels
  • the printer is out of ribbon ( TLP models only )
  • the printhead is open, not latched down all the way. Press down on the top cover of the printer to see if the error light clears and goes to green.
  • the ribbon spool is slipping on the ribbon spool holder on TLP models:

Stopped printing and red light on


Check your ink levels as the red light comes on if the cartridges are low or empty and it will not allow you to print?

Hi, we have a big problem


I would guess Orange = light red (magenta) indicating a problem with a clogged ink nozzels on the print head.
So might need an engineer if the cleaning option (on the printer menu) can't fix it.
Cheers
