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.

My paper keeps jamming after I changed the drum of my printer in my Brother HL-5250DN printer-- it seems that I touched something when I did so.


1. Unplug the printer.
2. Remove the drum.
3. Make sure there are no obstructions. Check for pieces of paper obstructing the feed and any small objects such as torn paper or even a stray fingernail.
4. Replace the drum.
5. Plug in the printer.
6. Attempt to print again.

Hi - I have a Brother HL5250DN with the paper light flashing but there is paper in the tray and now it wont print - can you help??


Is the Status light also red? This could mean other things than being out of paper. It could be a paper jam (most commonly anyway). Get a flashlight out and inspect it for jams.

My Brother HL 5250DN jams frequently when I try and duplex print. I have had no problems for over a year, but then it started jamming.


Paper dust/particles tend to accumulate on rubber rollers and they lose their grip (friction) of the paper.
Try to open every door and wherever any rubber rollers are visible, larger or smaller, clean them with isopropyl alcohol or some other oil-free and residue-free cleaner. Do it with the printer switched off the mains power, this should allow you to rotate the rollers to clean them all around.
Should help.

Printer paused-unable to read


HI there,

1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom persist?
2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer; this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error code.
