When the print quality deteriorates and the drum light is flashing you can replace teh drum but the light will continue to flash until you reset it. Do this by opening the front of the printer and holding down the Go button for about 4 seconds until all four lights on the display are illuminated. It should be fine after that.

Drum light still on when toner has been replaced


You need to replace the drum and reset the printer for that to go away, open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash and the drum is reset. If quality is OK you can keep using the old drum. If you press the go button 3 times it will give a report showing the life left in the drum.

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.

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.

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!

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.
