Take the drum out and wrap it up to keep the light out of it.  Check the contacts inside the printer and make sure there is nothing broken on them.  If there is toner on them, try to clean them off.

How do I reset a drum life on a d-350?


I think you mean a DR350.
1. Install the new drum and wait for it to display the "replace drum" error.
2. Open the front cover of the printer as if to change the toner out. The printer will read cover is open.
3. Press the clear/back button or just clear. The printer will say "replace drum?
4. press the 1 button and the printer will read "accepted".
5. Turn the printer off then on again to fully clear the error. Upon restarting the printer you'll be good to go.

Why does the drum need changing


The drum is where the images are created, a good drum means good printing quality, is sensitive to light, do not expose to sunlight directly and also expose to the light as less as you can. Other Brands of printers has the drum in the cartridges, every time that you replace the cartridge actually you are replacing the drum, but usually the drum last longer than the toner, Brother allows user to change drum when its need it, for example this drum last about 17,000 pages if you are not concern about quality you can reset the drum and keep using until the quality is not enough for you.

Drum light flashes


This means that you will need to replace the drum soon. Order a new drum and when the light becomes steady or the print quality becomes poor, replace the drum. The drum should last ~12,000 pages. The part number is DR350. You may be able to order this from your Office Supply store; otherwise try the Brother Mall site: http://www.brothermall.com/Accessories/AccessoryDetail.aspx?AccessID=DR350&AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 .

The procedure is similar to replacing the toner but instead of putting a new thing of toner inside the drum, you remove the toner and put it in the new drum. Open the front cover and pull out the drum and toner assembly. Place on newspaper or other disposable material (toner may spill). Push down the blue lever to unlock the toner cartridge. Remove the cartridge from the drum. Unpack the new drum (keep it out of the light until ready to replace the drum). Push the toner cartridge into the new drum until it locks into place; the blue lever should lift automatically. Put the assembly back in the printer. Clean the printer as recommended in the manual while it is open; this includes cleaning the corona wire before replacing the drum assembly.

After replacing the drum, reset the drum counter: with the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover and press and hold the GO button until all of the LEDs light up (about 4 seconds). Then release the GO button and close the cover. Check that the drum light is off. (The manual says you should do the reset first but I tend to avoid this in case of distractions.)

I hope this helps.

Put a new drum in my hl-5140 two weeks ago, now the drum light is flashing again and nothing will print.


  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.
This should reset the DRUM counter.

The drum light is flashing and I just changed the toner this morning. Not sure where I can either buy a new drum, or if I will need a new printer (which I hope not, I love this printer!)


Yes you can replace just the drum in the printer. If you think it may be under warranty give brother a call. Their number is: 877-276-8437

If you don't think it's under warranty then you can find a replacement drum for around $40, just google: Brother HL-2040 drum

HL2140 - DRUM REPLACED APPROX 3 WEEKS AGO, LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON


When you replace a drum in a brother machine you have to tell the machine it's a new drum. The instructions are on a sheet packed with the new drum. With the front door open you hold the panel button until all the lights flash on, then close the door and you're ready to print.

Hi dermtex,
