Question about Brother HL 5250DN Laser Printer
When I print with my new 5250DN the paper rolls up and blocks new pages from being printed
You have a humidity issue with your paper. Buy or open a fresh **** (sealed) and try printing again. If your paper is stored in a cool place move it to a warmer area. Paper tends to pick up moister over time, especially when cold and will curl when printing. The paper is actually steaming when it hits the fusing (heating) section in the back of the printer. The curl is because one side of the page is drying faster than the other.
If you have a case of paper and open a fresh **** with similar results, buy a new **** and try again. When selecting your paper buy good reliable paper. I recommend "HP Office" branded or better. I say stay with HP Brand paper as it's manufactured to a tight quality standard than most and is a "known good" paper. STAY AWAY FROM STORE BRANDS as they go out on low-cost bids and the quality varies widely on whoever got the contract this time.
As a more positive note, If you use a good paper in your printer, your drum cartridge (expensive) and toner cartridge (not cheap) will actually last much longer. You'll save more (much more) in the long run.
Hope that helps you.
