I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

I have a brother HL_2140 laser printer I just changed the ink cartage and now the Drum light is flashing on and off and it wont print?


That means you drum will finish soon, once the drum light become on you can not print, start looking for the new drum price and get it, once the drum light become on open the front door, take out the toner and drum, with the front door open press go button and keep it down until the 4 lights of the printer become on, release the button and install the new drum with the cartridge.

I have a Brother HL-5250, drum light on, not printing


When the drum light is on solid, it's time for a new drum, if you have a new drum, just open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash and the drum is reset. Press the go button 3 times and it will print a sheet showing the drum status.

Yeah, I have the HL-5250DN printer. The light


Hi there -

The reason the drum light keeps flashing is that you have to "reset" the machine after you've installed a new drum. To do this, I believe all you have to do is make sure the printer is on and then push and hold down the "GO" button a few seconds and then the flashing will stop. This will "reset" the printer to recognize you've installed a new drum. I'm going from memory on that, but I believe that's correct. It's a really simple solution. Good luck!

My Brother HL 5240 has Status toner, drum and paper lights on, I bought it on 4/30/08, new toner, plenty of paper, it showed on computer: printer is off line, but it was connected with computer. Really...


The drum light will flash on my brother HL-5240 Laser Printer when printing but it continues to print just fine. Does this mean the drum needs to be replaced?
