The alarm and data lights are on constantly and it will not print. What is wrong?


This would indicate that the installed toner cartridge is nearly empty and will soon need replacing. The manual can be found here and the error troubleshooting can be found in section 4-1.

When I turn on the printer, the data and alarm lights come on. There is nothing in the printer que. I have power cycled the printer. I was trying to print a pdf file.


From the Service manual:

Toner low: The Data and Alarm LEDs blink once every five seconds.
Toner empty: The Data and Alarm LEDs blink once every second.

Alarm & Data LEDs are ON: Toner empty

I needed to print a page off my laptop and put the usb from the HL-1240 Laser Brother printer and it refuses to print, even though it is set as the default printer. Does the printer have to plugged into...


Hello,

When you plug the printer in to your computer it will either install automatically (using the HL-1435 drivers) or if it is already installed it should come online.

If the printer is not doing this then you need to look on the printer to see if any of the LED lights are on or flashing. The toner cartridge might be empty or you might need to replace the drum unit.

Check the lights and you can see what they each mean on the Brother website using the link below.

Thanks,

The alarm button keeps blinking. How do I get it to stop?


Well I'm sure that the alarm button is blinking for a reason. I beleive that printer is a laser so unless you dont have paper in it :)
You most likely are low on toner or need to change the drum.

HL-1240, the alarm light is on, what would be the reasons?


the first alarm light (at the very top) indicate the toner life ends the second light(middle) indicate the drum life ends and the third is for paper jam or print error

Brother HL-1440 LASER PRINTER requires ''Service Call A''.


currently, the error you have is not a service errorl, ready and alarm blink means that you have either a paper jam, no paper, or a paper misfeed.

do you get this error only when you try to print?
according to the service manual the lights can not alternate in blinking.

OK figured out the sequence to resolve this error:

power off unit
unplug power cable for 1 minute
reset the power cable
open front door
press and hold the reset button under the lights
turn the power on
printer should then be reset
