Question about Brother HL-2170W Laser Printer
I'm trying to see what's wrong with my Brother HL-2170w printer. It was working fine yesterday, and now , for some reason, all 4 buttons are flashing and the printer won't print anything!
Toner LED: Flashing Yellow
Drum LED: Flashing Yellow
Error LED: Flashing Red
Go Button: Flashing Blue
I've tried cleaning the corona wire, removing and replacing the drum, removing and replacing the toner cartridge. Nothing seems to work. Please help!
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.

Open the front of the face. Pull out the catridge and drum assembly carefully. Thier should be a yellow tab on the toner catridge press down and the lift the toner catridge out. Replace and reseat in printer.

Had same problem. The instructions don't tell you that it is not just the cartridge that needs to be pulled out but the frame (black metal thing) inside which it sits. The whole thing pulls out. Of course, you have to press the green tab too.
