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 just had the same thing happen, and experienced the same sinking feeling when the printer told me it was a PCB failure. But just for the heck of it, I turned the printer off, waited a minute, and turned it on again. PROBLEM GONE! Printer printing normally.

    Anybody have any idea why the readout after pressing Go and Job Cancel together was so wrong?

    It's just a glitch then. Possible power fluctuation.

My Printer Brother Type HL-5250DN.. All 4 led is flashing.. allready take out and put in back toner.. still not working yet.. 4 light still flashing. Need help soon.. Thanks


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

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.

All led lights are flashing and red light on status


Press and hold the GO and Cancel buttons together, the lights should then change to just the status and either the toner drum or paper light on. Depending on the lights that are displayed will determine what the actual fault is.
Let me know what you find as this will help diagnose the actual fault.

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.

Drum and error light are on - got new cartridge - installed as directed - blue light will not stay on - printer will not print - red and orange lights will not go out


I can't recall the buttons on Brother laser printers but leaving the cartridge door open and pressing and holding down one of the buttons for about 5 seconds will clear the drum light error.

I've done this to clear the same error on aBrother HL5250DN laser printer.

If this doesn't work please post your printer's model number.

Brother HL5250DN red status light, no printing even with driver reinstall


I had this exact same problem

I just had mine repaired at an authorized Brother service center...It was the "Main PCB Assy". or the "main board. Total cost with tax....$100.
I'll try another brand before I buy Brother again.
