Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer
It sounds as if the cartridge you purchased was a remanufactured or self filled. The error light your having is toner cartridge related. The left side (not the side white the white brother label over the fill cap) of the cartridge has a resetting apparatus that resets the toner page count. I have included a link to a distributor site which has instructions at the bottom of the page for resetting the flag on the cartridge to trip the reset again.
If you remove the cartridge and drum from the machine you can also check to make sure the lever on the left sidewall of the printer that resets the cartridge is not damaged. Look 3 inches inward and 1 inch down on the black sidewall. The little lever should flip downward and rebound up freely. I can't remembeber for sure but you may be able to power on the machine with the door open and drum only installed and flip the lever for a manual reset. Not sure now as each brother is a little different. If not, use the link provided below.
Hope this helps you.
