    Was suprised two cartridges ago when I installed a new cartridge from a box I had opened & got a toner-out message so quickly. Had accumulated a couple toner units to recycle & thought I maybe I turned in my good one in place of the empty. Bought another cartridge. Noticed the toner light flickering almost right away. But it printed, so I figured the machine must be cycling the toner between print jobs. Now I'm getting a toner-out msg WAY sooner than in the past. Is there a toner sensor we can clean? When you took your printer to the shop, what did they say the problem was? Either the ability of the printer to communicate with the toner chip or whatever is severely degrading over time or the quality of the cartridges is slipping, or so it seems to me.

If the Drum LED is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.
Reset the Drum counter as follows:

  1. Open the front cover.
  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.

Drum light is blinking and not sure how to change it or fix it in Brother HL-5250DN


Hit the purple/blue button on the top of the printer 3 times. This will print a settings report of the printer showing you the toner levels and the drum life.
If you need a new drum purchase one. (I would suggest a new printer at this time but if you like it continue on)
Open the front of the printer and pull out the toner and the drum cartridge. The drum is on the bottom of the toner. Disconnect the drum from the toner and connect the new drum. Replace the toner/drum and you are good to go.

Brother HL-5250DN Laser Printer TONER LIGHT ON & NO PRIN PAGE


When the toner light is on this means the toner is empty and needs to be replaced before it can print again. Replace the toner and you will be able to print again.

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.

A solid red STATUS light with a solid yellow TONER light indicates toner out...replace according to pg. 63 in the manual.
It can also indicate a cartridge position error. Take the DRUM UNIT out of the machine and re-install.

A solid red STATUS light only means:

Front cover open
Fuser cover open
Dust on drum
Too many trays
Buffer error
Print overrun
Memory full
Download full
Font full

See pg.48 ofthe manual.

My broher 5250DN keeps showing toner needed, but i've replaced it


I just had the same problem. We have several of these in our office, but switching toner cartridges made no difference. Then I saw this site: http://www.oasis-imaging.com/images/pdf/cart_inst/TN580.pdf

I did steps 14-16, which takes 5-10 minutes. I put the toner back in the printer, turned it on, and it works perfectly now. Give that a try!
