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


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Alarm light is flashing as well as the Data light


It indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty.
You will need soon to Replace the toner cartridge with a new one.

Alarm light is RED and data light is AMBER - both are on permanently


This means toner is empty. This condition was probably preceded by a period of "toner low" indications, data- and alarm LEDs blinking shortly every fifth second or so (maybe you never noticed that). Replace toner cassette and it should work normally.

We have a Brother H 1240 Laser printer. The alarm and data are blinking and it will not print. I have tried to reset with no results. Can you tell me what to do?


generally, if the alarm data are blinking every 5 seconds, that indicates the toner is low.
there are no other possible errors. may be your toner is completely empty as well. are the other 2 lights blinking or on?

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.

Printer not working


On this printer, the alarm and data lights mean that the toner cartridge is empty. When you replace the toner, be sure to slide the corona wire cleaner across and back. This is the small light blue plastic piece on top of the drum cartridge. You'll see a small arrow in the plastic. Just slide it back and forth once or twice each time you replace the toner cartridge.

Printer won't print


According to the operation manual: If alarm light and data light blink every 5 seconds- TONER LOW (purchase more toner and have it ready when the 'toner empty' is indicated). If alarm light and data light stay lit- TONER EMPTY (replace toner cartrige with new one).

Alarm and data lights are both on and when i go to print nothing happens


take y'r drum and toner out of the printer.. now there should be two translutent white circular film on either side of your toner... what u have to do is take a small piece of paper and make a bead out of it and insert that small paper bead right in front of those film.. u can insert on both side or on just one...

if u don't find those circular film then open y'r HL printer toner loading tray and turn y'r printer ON.... u will see green or red light coming out of either side of y'r printer where toner sits.. thats the place u should look for those film on y'r toner....

it worked for me... hope it works for u too...

PEACE..
