Actually no need to replace your drum until it death.
but so for your problem
what you need to do is only
Push "start" buttom
Hold for 1 min and see the 4 lights on.
After that you should be fine.

The drum light has come on indicating it is near the end of its life. Do I need to buy a new printer or can the drum be replaced. model HL-2030/2040/207ON


Hello, Wendy.

Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.

I've seen your drum price for about $120 (USD), so it would be cost-effective to purchase a new drum.

Hope this helps.

Drum light flashing


For the Price of these Brother Printers, it's cheaper to just buy a new Printer. I have a Drum Light and Toner Light on at the same time. Currently the copies still look great so I'm just going to let it go until this stops.

Brother HL 2040 drum light flashing after drum replacement


The drum light is triggered by a page counter. To reset it, hold the GO button with the drum door opened until the light goes out (10 seconds). Close the door and it should be reset.

The drum light has come on, on my brother hl-2040


The drum is a consumable item; it wears out after so long so the drum will have to be replaced.

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

DRUM LIGHT KEEP FLASHING


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.

f 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 Error Light


Yes, the DRUM UNIT has reached the end of its life and must be replaced. You can order a new one from BROTHER,or a local office supply store may have it in stock. It is easy to replace, instructions are included, and when the new one is installed, the DRUM ERROR LIGHT will turn off , and the machine will be ready to use.
