Changed the drum & ink cartridge in HL-1440-ink bleeds on edge


Hi there,

This problem is often caused by spilled toner. Open the printer, carefully remove the cartridge, and give it a few bursts of compressed air. Often running several pages or type through will also fix this. If it persists, replace the toner cartridge.

Hope this initial info/idea helps. Let me know for any clarifications.

The problem coming because there is some paper jam in side the printer. Remove the toner cartridge and look inside the printer for any paper jam.
I hope it will help to solve your printer problem.

Sounds like you have a burr on the paper guide fins. Look for a small nick in the plastic guides fins which can simply be filed smooth with a small file.

Duplex Printer prints one side upside down


If it's the same as the Brother 4070 you go into printer proerties (press properties next to printer selector after sending a document to print).  Choose the advanced tab, on this tab near the top are five buttons with icons on, the second one shows two pages with A and B on, press this to access the duplex and binding options.  In there change from "flip on top edge" to "flip on left edge"

Brother HL 5250 DN status shows "error". Won't print.


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Brother 5250 DN Paper Jams


You problem is actually in the pick-up roller and separation pad areas. the paper is delaying and not making it through to the next check point in the machine fast enough.

1st
Take it by your closest Brother Service Outlet. They're in the phonebook under "Computer Service & Repair". It's a cheap fix but requires parts.

2nd
Use good paper. Paying a little more for paper will save you a lot over time in repairs and premature toner and drum failures. Brother printers are really finicky about paper quality. Recommend "HP Office" brand paper as a minimum. It's a known good paper for general everyday printing and won't break the bank.

I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  2. Hint
  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).

    Brother 5250DN printer noise


    Check my solution here:
    http://www.fixya.com/support/t641678-paper_tray_noise

    Here's a solution for you with Brother HL 5250 D/DN/DNT

    Change the paper setting tab in the tray to make sure you have a small gap between the top part of the paper and the bottom part.

    so if this is the old settings : |paper| --> you want to make it: | paper| so you can have slide the paper back and forth.

    DON'T adjust the setting to the next paper size because the roller wont catch the paper if it slide too far.

    Good luck to all.
