Brother HL 1440 won't print

The yellow data and red alarm lights are on. It is totally non responsive when a document is clicked to be printed. When turned off the turned on again, the ``drum'' and ``ready'' green lights come on and it makes the whirring noise as if it is going to print, then it just reverts to the yellow and red lights.

Try first unplugging power, and removing toner
check inside for foreign objects or fragments of paper
Open all doors and close them back , and plug back power.

    The two ligts flashing means that the drum counter is at maximum life allowed for your drum, or the drum is faulty
    If the above did not work you will probably need to replace the drum.

    Here is also a reset procedure

    eave open while completing the following steps.

    2. Turn the printer off.

    3. Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.

    4. Release the 'go' button.

    5. Press the 'go' button 2 times.

    6. Pause.

    7. Press the 'go' button 5 times.

    8. The toner light should be off.

    9. The paper light should be on or flashing.

    10. Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.


    There are more ways to reset the drum but on all of them there is the risk to damage the printer.

Hl-1440 printer red, yellow lights keep flashing on and off prints ok what is it


Normally nothing to e alarmed about. As you said, it still appera to print okay. This flasing is a warning that your toner is low and will soon need to be replaced. If you recently replaced the toner artridge and know this not to be the case, print out a supplies status page from the onboard menu to see if it show low. Sometimes we are not aware of how much we have printed, hence the warning and the printer is usually right.

Blinking red and yellow light


Generally if both the (red) alarm LED and the (yellow) data LED are both blinking, it is an indication that the tone cartridge needs to be replaced. You should be close to out of cartridge.
