Printer Status LED is Red and Drum Light is Yellow

Hi, this error shows when the corona wire is dirty, some times I clean the corona wire with a small screw driver pressing the corona wire down and slide the screw driver to the both sides also once you clean in the up I press from the side and slide the screwdriver after that with a cotton swab with isopropyl alcohol slide from side to side, or replace the drum unit and reset, if you install a new toner, there is a mechanic control for reset the printer toner counter, this only works the first time that you install the cartridges, for example If you install the cartridge in 1 printer and then move to other printer the other printer keep the counter for the old cartridge, if you are sure that your cartridge is new you need to open a return the gears to is original position in order to install in another printer.

When you change drum, do you reset it?

If not, try this:
Install the toner cartridge into the new
drum unit until it locks into place,
indicated by a click. When the toner
cartridge is installed correctly, the lock
lever is lifted automatically.
Press the control panel button until all the LEDs are on. (The LED turns on in sequence
from top to bottom.) The drum page counter is reset.
Close the front cover, and check that the Drum LED is now off.

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!

When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

No toner message

The control panel display will indicate which toner is out;
K = Black
M = Magenta
Y - Yellow
C = Cyan

Also, the orange indicator light will flash.

Generally, each toner will provide about 1,500 copies depending on the intensity of the specific color. The toner drums, on the other hand, generally provide more than 20,000 copies each and need not be changed that often.

When you change a toner, included with the toner is a little alcohol wipe that you use to clean the toner sensor. This is a small LED located along side the toner holder. Make sure ALL toner waste/dust is cleaned off the sensor before installing the new toner.

Also, while I hate to state the obvious, make sure you removed the tape from the new toner before inserting it. Last, make sure you lock the toner in place with the blue lever. And it never hurts to shake the toner a little side to side before inserting it just in case the toner has gathered at one end.

Last, there is a utility included with the printer that lets you access the printer's information via your computer. This will tell you exactly how much toner is left in each cartridge and the life remaining on the drum.

Drum light flash Brother HL 2070N

You need to have the front of the printer open, when you press and hold the 'Go' button. All four lights will come on, in sequence. Release the button, and close the front cover. Done...

Faded letters

Hi there make sure that it is not on toner saving mode in the driver then try taking out the toner cartridge and shaking it side to side then reinstall toner and test machine with fifty copies. If not any joy then replace the toner cartridge as 9 out of 10 of this sort of problems are toner cartridge. Is the toner cartridge an original or a refill one if refill change for a new original.

Hope this works
Thanks J
