  1. Update the driver and software through the Brother website (see Resources section). Software issues and outdated drivers are a common cause of printer malfunctions. The downloads are free and will only take a few minutes to install.
  2. Step 2 Check all connections from the printer to your computer. The AC cord needs to be plugged in and the interface cable needs to be connected to an open port and in working order.
  3. Step 3 Print a test page to see if the printer is producing quality documents. To do this, hold down the "Go" button on the printer after you press the power key. Release the "Go" button once all of the LED lights turn off. Select "Go" again to print the test page.
  4. Step 4 Review the status monitor of your Brother HL 5250DN printer to see if an error message is displayed. Potential messages include "No Paper," "Low Toner," "Paper Jam" and "Cover Open."
  5. Step 5 Look in the paper output tray for any error message printouts. The Brother HL 5250DN has the ability to print out an error message if the memory is full or the resolution for the document is too high.
  6. Step 6 Remove the paper tray to make sure it is not overfilled. Check the carriage for any paper jams.

Paper won't come out paper light blinks


I have a similar printer. Sometimes the bottom paper tray gets stuck or caught. Make sure the printer is on a flat surface.

1. Turn off the printer.
2. Pull the paper tray all the way out.
3. Take out all the paper and then place the tray back in.
4. Turn the machine on and let it try to print without paper.
5. When the light comes on add paper hit the button and you should be good to go.

How do I get the printer to print automatically using the bypass tray


you can set the bypass tray the size you want then set paper size setting in the printer driver at your PC.

Hold down the [PAPER SIZE ENTER] key more than 5 seconds to
set the selected paper size.
The currently selected paper feed location indicator will blink and the
corresponding paper size (which is currently set) indicator will light
steadily.

All other indicators will go out.
If the machine has two paper trays, use the [TRAY SELECT] key to
select the paper tray for which you wish to change the paper size
setting.

Each time the [TRAY SELECT] key is pressed, a paper tray will be
indicated with a blinking paper feed location indicator.
Use the [ORIGINAL SIZE ENTER] key to select the paper size you want to set.
The indicator of the selected paper size lights up.

Press the [START] key and then the [PAPER SIZE ENTER] key.
To change the paper size setting of another tray, repeat steps
after pressing the [START] key

Make sure that the tray's paper size setting is the same as the tray's
paper size setting in the printer driver. For example, if the tray's paper
size setting is A4R (LT-R), set "Setting Paper Size" to "A4-R".

Red Error Light Stays On The following conditions can cause the On Line LED to glow solid red:
  • Printer paper is jammed inside your printer.
  • A cover is not be closed properly.
  • The toner cartridge is not inserted properly and needs to be reinstalled.
  • The toner cartridge is running low.
  • There is no paper in the paper tray.
  • The paper inside the paper tray is not be installed correctly.
Red Error Light Blinks If your printer's On Line LED is blinking red, your printer's toner is exhausted and needs to be replaced. On Line and Error Light Blink Simultaneously
If your printer's On Line and Toner Save LEDs blink simultaneously, your printer requires service.

HP PSC 1400 all in one:


Some things to try...

Open the printer as though you were going to remove the cartridges.

Pull the paper that is in the tray out of the tray. Ensure you do not have too much paper for your particular tray to handle.

Look inside the printer to ensure there is no obvious paper jam. Close the printer. Give it a second or two to think....

Put the paper back into the paper tray. May just need a smaller pile of paper. If there is too much paper in your tray it will not go through the rollers properly.

If lights are still blinking after that however read any messages follow instructions if poss. Sometimes you just need to hit the enter button at this point to clear. Cartridges may align any point (hopefully).

If none of this works. Look for a "Toolbox" or something in your printer/scanner software on your computer that would enable you to send the align printer cartridges command from the software. That may align them as well.

I would be interested to know if this works. Good luck!

Paper Light Blinking


make sure the rear part of your paper tray is not pressed too tightly against rear of paper. it will prevent the paper from raising up fully to the feed roller. you can also try cleaning the feed roller if that doesn't do it.

Not working


Pull out the tray with paper.
You should find a moving plastic "tongue" near the middle of width in the area where your paper tray should go. It's a contact based flag for the device to consider how much paper is in the tray. Check if it's not broken or stuck in odd position. Move it back and forth several times, with no force, it goes very easily. When you lift the flag up, see message and blinking led stop appearing. Try to pull paper tray back in, add paper if error appears again. Enjoy!
