    I have the same problem with HL-5250.  I've checked and reloaded the paper, turned the whole thing off and on, pressed GO, but nothing has helped.  It makes noise like it's trying to load the paper and then the paper light starts flashing again.

Hi 
I've nearly the same problem....My printer(HL5050)  takes only a little bit of the sheet, then paper led flashes.
I've found a block into the paper feeder. This printer is impossible to disassemble.!!...even if I've the service manual, because for taking away a simple pressed paper block , it's necessary disassembling  almost all the machine!!! No comment 
So I'd an idea:
I've sprayed into the paper feeder a great quantity of a cleaning spray (without oil) , in order to get the paper block wet, then , by means a school-book plastic cover, used like a paper sheet,  and  manually acting on the gear, I've pulled this plastic sheet up and down several time (spraying in the same time)in order to  remove these hard paper blocks. Now my feeder seems free. Tomorrow I'll try to test it.....
Regards

PS To do this it's necessary the only removal of left cover, in order to reach the gear which allows the paper to advance manually.

Brother HL 1250 Laser Printer Alarm light blinks at same time as ready light and printer does not print - why?


I have saeen this happen and there is usually a paper jam somewhere in the machine. Remember, it doesn't take much of a piece of paper to jam. Use a flashlight and look inside your printer closely. Also check your toner supply level.

When I turn on the printer the light paper flashes


The paper light flashing because there is some paper inside the printer. Open the front cover and remove the cartridge and look inside for the jammed paper. Remove the jammed paper and insert the cartridge , closed the front cover and switch on the printer.
It will help you to solve the problem.

Paper jam Brother HL-5050


1. Turn off the printer. 2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one. 4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it. 6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside. 8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path. 10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved. alternative : Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Check for a piece of paper caught in the fuser section. Sometimes a small piece will wedge itself in. Vacuum out any residual toner that may be in the paper path.
