Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer
I know this is an ancient thread, but here is my solution to this problem:
Open the printer and remove the toner cartridge. Inside the printer, on the left hand side, is a little lever that lets the printer know there is a cartridge inside. Push the lever down, and secure it with a piece of tape. Close the printer and power it up. You should get to the point where the red light stays on. Open the printer, remove the tape, and replace the cartridge. The printer will run through its cycle, and the status light should turn green. The printer should now work as normal.
I know it sounds weird, but I came across this after HOURS of messing around with the printer. It has worked for me every time I have run into this situation.

1: Turn off power and remove toner/drum
2: Tape the little spring loaded lever just inside the printer on the upper left hand side in the *DOWN* position! Do not replace drum yet and...
3: Turn power on to printer and let it cycle. Status/Toner lights will come on as usual.
4: Turn off printer, remove tape from lever, replace drum and turn back on.
