You need to reset the drum counter. Open the front door and hold the go button until all the lights flash. Shut the door, ready to print...If you press the go button 3 times it will give you a printout that shows the usage level of the drum.

How do I take out the drum


When you change the toner cartridges you have to take out the whole Drum and Toner unit and unclip the toner from the drum unit. The Drum when you are replacing it is the DR7000 unit. Replace this unit and clip your toner unit back onto the new drum unit and re-install it in the printer and follow the instructions that came with the replacement drum unit to reset the drum counter.

'drum' light comes on and m/c wont print


You need to open the front cover of the machine and remove the cartridge (drum and toner) On the top right there is a tab that you need to slide from left to right about 20 times, then bring back to home position

Little dots on right side of margin (Brother HL-5040)


I would have guessed the trouble shooting steps you first performed. It could still be a bad imaging drum. Or a fuser. Not sure if this model has a replaceable fuser or not.

Brother Laser HL-5240 has a status light and toner light. Fuser was replaced but no help.


that error usually indicates that the toner has reached its end of life
or the drum is not properly installed.

i had one person who put the toner in but threw the drum cartridge away.

Drum light comes on, but the drum is perfectly fine


Sometimes the corona needs cleaning, thats moving the blue tab on the drum back and forth several times. Other times you need to reset the drum after you install a new one. Open the front door, hold the go button until all lights flash and it's reset. Press the go button 3 times for a report that tells you the machine and drum status...

Try this to rest the drum counter.

After installing a new drum unit the drum counter must be reset. Use
the following steps:
1. Printer must be powered on.

2. Press the cover release button and open the front cover.

3. Press and hold the Go button until all four lights are on solid.
Release the Go button.

4. Close the front cover.

5. The drum light will now be off.

HL-2040 CHANGE TONER


I just had the same problem and fixed it. Hold down the blue "go" and red "job cancel" buttons at the same time for a few seconds. The printer churns into action and the green status light goes on. I was able then to print.
