Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer

Open Question

I have a dual tray Brother 5250DN. I have letter size paper in one tray and legal in the buttom tray. The printer is hooked up to my mac router via a ethernet cable and my pc is also connected to the router. I can not print different size papers using adobe reader on my pc. Why? I called Brother and the tech told me that he can not help me with the adobe reader problem, but can help me if it is a word document. Is there a solution to this problem? Any help would be great.

SOURCE: I want to find the MAC address on a Brother

Go to Printers and Faxes.
Right click on the printer and select Properties.
Toward the bottom, click on Printing Preferences...
Click on the Support tab.
Click on Print Settings.

This should give you three pages. The third page has the network settings including Ethernet/MAC address.

All lights on , you need to press the go and cancel buttons at the same time and see which lights are on, I'm sorry, I confused this model with another...you need to press both buttons to see which lights are on when both go and cancel are held. It sounds though like a main logic PCB problem, let me know what lights are on when you hold both buttons, there is no error that matches what you said earlier, but I told you the wrong buttons...

SOURCE: 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.

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.

Copying legal size on a Brother MFC 7420


This is for a temporary, as needed solution: Press "Menu/Set" button. Select "General Setup". Scroll down and select "Paper Size", find and select "Legal" size. Press Menu/Set button again. Press "Stop/Exit" button.
Insert legal size paper to be copied on the feeder tray and put a legal size paper in the Manual slot. Hit "Print"
You need to do these same steps again to return the settings to Letter size again.

Paper Available does not include legal (only letter and A4). Tried to go into the Advanced Properties - no legal available? The printer recognizes the legal tray but the laptop does not.


Try setting the paper size in the printer settings.
Click Printer and Faxes then right click on the HP Laserjet 4350 and click on Properties, then Device Settings tab and click on the down arrow and click on Tray 1 or 2 that has the Letter Paper installed and select the Letter paper size. Then click OK.
This paper tray is now configured for Letter paper.

I just bought a new Dell with Windows 7. Installed the updated driver from brother. Printer worked OK. As a page was feeding back into the machine it got stuck. I removed the page. But since then the paper...


This could mean that the printer is expecting paper of a particular size (for duplex printing). Press the job cancel button and check that the paper size is set for the correct paper type (A4, Letter or Legal). That light will also blink if the back cover is open or the duplex tray is not installed.

How to print with the legal paper?


Hi,
follw the given step and check- 
1-Before printing your document, be sure the page size is set to legal paper. Go to "File> Page Setup" and then click on the "Paper Size" tab. Select "Legal" from the drop-down menu.
 
2-Go to the printer and take out the paper tray. Remove the letter size paper.
 
3-Insert about one half of the package of legal size paper into the tray, depending on the depth of your tray. Larger printers can accept an entire package, while smaller ones cannot.
 
4-Make sure that the paper goes underneath the metal clips located at both the front and back of the tray.
 
5-For printers that don't have a tray, you'll have to manually feed the legal size paper. Locate the paper feed either on the front or rear of the printer.
 
6-Put a few sheets of legal size paper into the paper feed. The paper should be placed as close to the rubber spindles as possible. These spindles will draw the paper into the machine and feed it through the printer.
 
7-Print a test page.

Thanks,

Brother printer problem


Manual Feed Command.
1. Press the Job Cancel button to cancel the print job. Delete the print
job in the print queue on the computer. You can quickly access the print queue by double clicking the Printer icon in the task
tray or dock.

2. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.
Check that the front cover is closed.

3. Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button
until the Toner, Drum, and Paper LEDs are lit.

4. Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.

5. Press the GO button 8 times. The green Status LED will flash briefly
while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the Status LED
will be lit green.

6. Print the Print Settings by pressing the GO button three times. If
the Print Settings pages do not print and the Paper LED is on again skip
to the next section - No Paper in the Paper Cassette.

If the Print Settings pages print, the problem is isolated to printing
from your computer. The Paper Source of the Brother printer driver or
program you are printing from may be set to MP Tray or Manual, instead
of Auto Select, Tray 1, or Tray 2 (if the optional paper tray is
installed). To check the Paper Source setting of most programs, click
File and Page Setup or Page Layout. You may need to click the Paper
Source tab or Paper tab depending on your software application. Verify
that in the Paper Source section does not list MP Tray or Manual. Choose
Auto Select, or another relevant source such as Tray 1. Click OK. Try printing the document again.


No paper in the paper cassette.
1. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.

2. Insert the letter or legal size paper into the paper tray with the
top edge of the paper first and the print side down. Make sure that the
paper is flat in the tray and below the maximum paper mark. If using a
paper size other than letter or legal, the paper should be loaded in the
MP Tray. The MP Tray can print on paper from 2.75 in. by 4.57 in. up to8.5 in. by 16 in.

3. While pressing the blue paper-guide release lever, slide the paper
guides to fit the paper size. Make sure that the guides are firmly in
the slots. For legal size paper, press the lever located at the back of
the tray and pull out of the back of the open tray.

4. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer. Press the GO
button. If the alarm clears, no further troubleshooting is needed. If
the alarm continues, follow the steps below.


Paper Jam at Paper Pick-up.
1. Turn the printer power switch OFF on the right side of the printer.

2. Remove the paper cassette from the printer.

3. Elevate the front of the printer slightly to locate the jammed
paper.

4. Gently remove the jammed paper.

5. ReinstalI the paper cassette back into the printer.

6. Turn the printer power switch ON. If the alarm clears, no further
troubleshooting is needed.

Tray output


You should configure TRAY 1 as Legal only.
and Tray 2 as plain letter.

Specially when you specify from what tray/paper type to print.

This can be easily configured from the Printer Properties within the Printers and Faxes section of the Control Panel.

Good luck!
