SOURCE: BROTHER Hl 2040 PRINTER WON'T PRING

I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything. I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:

  1. Open the front panel.
  2. Remove the toner and the drum
  3. Remove the toner FROM the drum
  4. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. I put mine on the right side.
  5. Put everything back in.
  6. Turn on your printer if it's not already.
  7. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can really empty your cartridge.

SOURCE: Brother HL 2040 drum light flashing after drum replacement

The drum light is triggered by a page counter. To reset it, hold the GO button with the drum door opened until the light goes out (10 seconds). Close the door and it should be reset.

How do I replace the drum on a Brother hl 2040.


I have 'reused' the same drum three times and still prints like a charm.
Open the toner door and pull out the toner/drum assembly. Take the toner off the drum tray. Use a alcohol pad or lint free cloth and wipe the mauve coloured drum to remove the excess lint and toner collected on the drum. Rotate the drum with the white gear and keep cleaning until the whole drum is done.
Put the toner back in the drum tray. Clean the corona wire by sliding the blue tab back and forth 3 or 4 times. Put the toner/drum back into the printer and close the door.
After the printer does the self test the drum light will cone on again so then you need to reset the counters.
Open the door again
Hold the GO button until all 4 lights are lit up
Release the GO button
Close the door
Printer will self test and should extinguish all the trouble lights.

I have a brother HL 2040 laser printer. The toner and drum light were lit, so I replaced both the drum and the toner cartridge, but the toner light remains on. I have tried everything, but the toner...


Two things I could suggest you check. First, make sure you have removed all packing from the drum and toner. Sometimes there is a plastic strip on the toner that has to be removed before installation. Also, make sure you are using a Brother brand toner. Some generic brands do not replace the chip in the cartridge and they will not work,

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.

Brother HL-2040 All LEDs stay lit and the printer no longer works


Turn it on and when all the LEDs light up, THEN press the Go button. One or more LEDs will stay lit and the others will be off. Look in the user manual (you can find it online at the Brothers site if you don't have one). There is a chart in the Troubleshooting section that will tell you what problem your particluar combination of "lit" buttons indicates. It may suggest fixes, or depending on the problem, tell you to see a repair person.

PROBLEM BROTHER 2040 PRINTER


Have you replaced the drum and toner? It sounds as if the printer is saying it's time. The motor constantly running usually means it's trying to add toner to satisfy the toner sensor, but it's empty.
