All the lights are flashing for the toner, drum and paper. I have replaced the toner and added paper. But the lights on still flashing.

When all of the lights are flashing like that it indicates there's a SERVICE CALL needed,
that usually means right away you'll need to have a service technician repair a part but I can at least help you figure out what part it will be.

To find what's called the Secondary Error code you have to:

Press both the GO and JOB CANCEL buttons together,
this will cause either 1 or 2 of the LEDs to light up.

What they mean:
Toner: Fuser
Toner and Drum: Main PCB (the brain, the main board)
Drum: Laser
Paper: Main motor
Drum and Papaer: Power supply
Toner and Paper: DIMM (the memory module)

Pretty much all of those except the DIMM would cost more (parts and labor) to fix than to replace the machine.

However if you still want help to try and fix the printer leave a comment with what the problem part ends up being and I'll try to help you further.

Find this solution useful? Please be sure to leave a positive review and or vote if so! :)

All led lights are flashing and red light on status

Press and hold the GO and Cancel buttons together, the lights should then change to just the status and either the toner drum or paper light on. Depending on the lights that are displayed will determine what the actual fault is.
Let me know what you find as this will help diagnose the actual fault.

Brother 5250dn and all light are blinking

That series of lights indicates a main circuit board failure. You will need a shop to replace the main logic PCB. Could be caused by anything, static shock, bad input power from power strip or power failure, just plain CPU failure. If it's under warranty, 1 year since purchase, you need a Brother service center, out of warranty a new printer would cost less than repair.

f the Drum LED is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.

  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.

My Brother HL 5240 has Status toner, drum and paper lights on, I bought it on 4/30/08, new toner, plenty of paper, it showed on computer: printer is off line, but it was connected with computer. Really...

The drum light will flash on my brother HL-5240 Laser Printer when printing but it continues to print just fine. Does this mean the drum needs to be replaced?
