Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer

2 Answers

Feeder wheels are spinning backwards

I've been using the Brother HL-5250DN laser printer for about 8 months now and it recently started acting up. The little wheels that feed the paper out have started turning the opposite direction. So any page thats printed gets rolled the opposite way and causes a paper jam. Is there anything I can do to reset it and make the paper ejecting wheels spin properly?

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 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...

Paper tray not lifting the paper up for the initial paper feeder

most common problem on these is the rear paper stop pressing too hard against the rear of paper causing paper not to lift. make sure you have about an 1/8" gap.

good luck,
