Brother HL 2040 prints extremely light and seems to smudge? Just changed out the tone cartridge and no change.

I'm not sure if the drum is going out or not. How many toners have you used? The drum is rated at 12,000 pages and the toner is supposed to yeild 2500 pages, so 4 or 5 toners ought to finish the drum. Did you clean the area around the drum? I don't think you're supposed to touch it, but I've never had to touch my 7240 in 4 years, except to change the toner.

The good news is the toner will fit in more than one Brother machine and the printers are inexpensive. It almost makes buying a new machine more economical than a drum :-}

The HL printer is Manufacturer Discontinued, the new ones use a 360 series drum and toner, and the MFC's (7220 etc.) are about $200 vs. $116 for the drum. Hmmm.

Might be time to upgrade.

Where is the toner reset button on the Brother HL-2040?

I think there is none. It will reset when you install a new cartridge.

Please describe your Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer problem

Yep this will always happen if your just using a replacement toner. They will be depleted faster compared to the original Brother toner.

Make sure you replace your toner with the original Brother toner.

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

I think the previous post applies to resetting the drum light after replacing the drum.

You need to reset the toner end-of-life condition.

  1. Open the Front cover
  2. Press and hold the GO button
  3. Power ON the printer while continuing to hold the GO button
  4. All 4 LED's will light up and then 3. Once the 3 LED's are lit, release the GO button
  5. Press the GO button 2 times. This will cause the
    LED's to light solid
  6. With the LED's lit solid, press the GO button 5 times
  7. At this point the Paper light should be blinking. Toner end-of-life has been reset
  8. Close the front cover.
