Toner light Brother HL 5250

I am having the same problem with my toner light being on, even with a whole new cartridge. Where exactly is the small lever about 2.5 inches in on the left in the middle of the space left by the empty cart5idge. I did not see any other levers.Is this the right lever? This lever is in the up position when the cavity is empty. Do I tape it to stay in this position? We have been fighting with this machine for months and I am at my wits end. Help! My kids term papers are coming due!

If the Drum LED is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.
Reset the Drum counter as follows:

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Locate the control panel button under the LED lights on the left side.
  3. Press the control panel button until all lights are lit, then release it.
    The Drum counter is now reset.

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.

Brother HL 5170DN Printer Toner error


Trick Brother HL 5170DN printer into think there is toner left. Rather than run out for a new toner cartridge use a small (.5 x .5 in.) piece of black electrical tape to cover the sensor hole on the non-gear side of the cartridge. By covering the hole the printer is fooled into thinking the hopper is full of toner.

Tip

Brother HL-2140 does not print even if toner is full


In the Brother HL-2140 printer, it shows the Toner led light is on. Even if there is plenty of toner on the cartridge. It just wont print anything after initiating a print job since the toner light is on.Here is a trick on what you need to do:

1. Turn off the Brother HL-2140 printer.
2. Open the front access door to take out the toner from the carriage.
3. Notice that on both sides of the toner, you will see a small hole which is most probably the sensor.
4. What you do is to cover the sensor holes with masking tape and color the tape with black marker. Or, you can also use an electrical tape to cover them.
5. Shake the toner so that the ink inside will redistribute evenly.
6. Return the toner to the carriage and try to initiate a print again.

That's it!

I have 3 Brother HL-20040 laser printers but 2 of the 3 show the toner (yellow) light with good cartridges. Is this a common problem? Is the sensor bad? Do I junk it for another which I can purchase new...


Could be a bad sensor., but if you put a small piece of electrical tape over the windows on each side of the toner cartridge, ti will think there's toner and the light should be out. When prints come out blank, it's time for more toner...

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

Brother printer HL 5250 DN. The drum light was flashes and I have replaced the drum kit and toner cartridge.

The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
Press the cover release button and then open the front cover of the printer.


Press and hold down Go button until all 4 LEDs are lit. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.

Close the front cover.
Make sure that the Drum LED is now off.
Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.
