Drum is the one attached with the toner.

Open the front cover then you will see the toner and the drum.

You have to open the door and hold the go button til all lights flash. That tells the printer it has a new drum. After that press the go button 3 times and it will print a report that shows the drum as new...

Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J

Hello Pat ,

You might not need a new drum .

Try this as it resets the bios on the 2040 and you can get some decent life out of your drum ... Done it about 6 times on one printer and it still goes fine .

1. turn the printer off
2 . check that the front cover is open
3 press and hold the go button and while holding turn the printer on .
4.check that the toner/ drum/paper / leds are all on .
5 . release the Go button and check that all LED go out.
6 Press the go button twice .
7 Check the toner / drum/paper Led are now on
8 Press the go button six times
9 close the front cover .

You should now be away .


cheers and good luck .


Mike

This drove me crazy recently...

The Reset Parts Life option is not available unless the "Drum End Soon" message is on the display. If you replace the drum before this message appears, you'll have to wait to reset the count.

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.

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.

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.
