Yes,.. you need to change the print drum unit. The drum light (amber LED) may or may not be on. It is not the only way to tell when the drum unit needs to be replaced. If the failure is premature, it could be caused by an obstruction on that edge of the drum,.. if you pull the drum unit out and look,.. look for small pieces of paper or a failing wiper on the drum. Either way, the drum will need to be replaced and the inside of the printer cleaned.
Here is a link to the manual for your printer. Look at section Routine Maintenance 6-8

Brother HL 5150D not printing unless I keep pressing Go


its not the problem of toner cartridge.its the problem of gears which pulls the paper they r worn out or may be cracked internally.exactly what happens when you u give the print for the first time the printer gets command and the gears starts spinning and the paper gets pulled because it gets a pressure internally and after 2 pages that pressure gets low and it stops pulling the paper.some times changing the paper thickness solves the problem temporvarily .i mean use the thick quality paper instead of thin.

Try the blue corona wire on top of the drum unit. If it is not right back to the left it will leave a line on every page.
