Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer
Fixing this problem is very easy, even for those not so technical. All you need is a Philips Screwdriver. And it will also save you money in the process! :-)
The link above to the PDF has good images to help, so download that first.
Look at Fig. 5 on page 2. There you see 2 silver screws. Remove these.
Look at Fig. 6 and Fig 6a on page 3. Remove the cover and then remove the Flag gear (red arrow in Fig. 6) and the spring behind it as shown in Fig 6a.
Now replace the cover and the 2 screws! That's it! Yes it is that simple, just remove the Flag Gear and the Spring. The printer will keep on printing. This will also save you loads of money, as the toner can be used until really empty.

Change your toner. if it's a rather new toner, it might not be your toner cartridge but you have to reset the toner cartridge's end of life flag gear, explained below:
the Flag gear lines up with a flap on the pritner side. you can also tape that up to achieve the same goal.

Rigsby66's solution (removing the flag gear completely) was the only one that worked for me. Many thanks!
