I have a Brother HL-2070n with all of the lights flashing

I changed the toner cartridge and the lights kept flashing. I tried resetting the drum counter using tips I found on this site, but all the lights continue to flash. Any suggestions?

did you remember to remove the seal on the toner cart? this is a breakaway tab usually on the side, this when pulled removes the plastic seal,(from inside the cartridge)

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

The HL-2070N gets jammed in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear (I have 120 in the field so I know it works!):

With paper loaded, new toner in,

  1. Open front door
  2. Turn off printer
  3. While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
  4. When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
  5. Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
  6. Press the GO button 5 times
  7. Paper light will be blinking
  8. At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.

Drum light flash Brother HL 2070N


You need to have the front of the printer open, when you press and hold the 'Go' button. All four lights will come on, in sequence. Release the button, and close the front cover. Done...
