Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Only prints top of page

I have a networked Brother HL-5250DN printer that has been working great. Recently, however it will only print the very top of a page. It won't print anything about 1.5" down the page. I've tried printing from lots of different programs, but the same thing happens. I've left the printer off for a long period of time to reset the memory... I also tried replacing the toner cartridge, but nothing has helped.

Any ideas what might be happening? Thanks in advance!

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.

In case of a simple memory glitch, power down the printer, remove the toner cartridge, carefully swing it side to side (the cartridge, not the printer!), reinsert, and power back on.
Hopefully that will do the trick.
As always, make sure your OS as well as your drivers are all up to date.

When the toner light is on this means the toner is empty and needs to be replaced before it can print again. Replace the toner and you will be able to print again.

I want to find the MAC address on a Brother HL-5250DN mono laser printer. We run on a Windows XP Ethernet network. Is there a report page I can print straight from the Printer?


Go to Printers and Faxes.
Right click on the printer and select Properties.
Toward the bottom, click on Printing Preferences...
Click on the Support tab.
Click on Print Settings.

This should give you three pages. The third page has the network settings including Ethernet/MAC address.
