One of the two paper trays would not feed in either the upper or lower position. In comparing the working and non-working tray, I found that I could manually rotate the white plastic gears on the left side of the working tray, but not on the inoperable one. When I took the paper out of the non-working tray, the gears rotated easily. I found that the paper length adjustment tab on the rear of the tray was a wee bit misaligned from the correct index (visible on the floor of the tray when paper is removed. I readjusted the paper length tab, and voila! It worked.

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.

How to you turn on the manual feed for the HL 5250dn?


Simply pull down the door on the front of the machine and insert paper into the manual feed tray. There is a sensor that recognises paper in the manual feed try and will then print from it.

My Brother 5250DN is not pulling paper through. What could it be?


do a test print... see you manual. You hold a button for 3 seonds and it'll print a test page. If that works you should be OK. Make sure that your paper tray is NOT over loaded. Maybe try less paper. Try the manual feed using one sheet of paper

Sounds like your secratery's printer is set to ignore paper mismatch errors. It depends on the setting you have in your driver. Can you set your driver on your printer to ignore paper mismatch errors. If not when your printer errors, just try hitting the go button and it should print the document any way.

HL-2030 printer won`t print labels with Word 2007


If it's the same as my Hl-5250DN, you have to use MP Tray mode. The MP (multi-purpose) tray is cleverly hidden on the front of my printer.

Paper tray not lifting the paper up for the initial paper feeder


most common problem on these is the rear paper stop pressing too hard against the rear of paper causing paper not to lift. make sure you have about an 1/8" gap.

good luck,

Brother 5250DN printer noise


Check my solution here:

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.
