Question about Brother HL 1240 Printer
The alarm light stays on before printing. When I select print, it moves to ready and I hear a flipping sound and the light goes back to alarm abd does not print
Pull the drum out the front door, remove the toner cartridge and check for any paper and remove it.
Make sure there is toner in the toner cartridge. Look at the lights on the printer. Look at the labels beside them. The label "Toner" will have two lines going to two lights. If those two lights are on when you try to print, you are out of toner. But a now toner and install it in the drum. Install the drum back into the printer.
If not, look at the drum. At the rear top is an opening across the whole drum. Look inside it, you will see a metal grid. That grid must be clean or it will cause small sparks. These sparks will cause a false toner empty error. Buy a can of compressed air from Best Buy (or wherever). Use this compressed air to blow clean the grid. Move the small blue tab at one side of the opening ti the other side and back again. Reinstall the drum and try printing again.
If neither of those help, write back and let me know what lights stay on when the printer stops.
