Reset drum life


If you are asking how to reset the drum replacement light then all you need to do is open the front door on the printer. Now press AND hold the GO button and continue holding until all 4 lights on the printer come on. Now release the button and close the front door. This resets the internal drum counter.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Brother 5250dn drum light blinking; I think drum is ok because I put drum from another working printer and the drum light continued to blink.


The drum light is on due to a preset counter to notify you that the drum has reached the end of Normal Usage life expectancy. It doesn't mean that it has failed, yet...but soon. I would suggest having a new drum on hand for when print quality starts failing. Either new drum units have a reset fuse in them to clear the warning light, or there is a reset proceedure to use after installing the new drum unit.

I have a Brother HL-5250, drum light on, not printing


When the drum light is on solid, it's time for a new drum, if you have a new drum, just open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash and the drum is reset. Press the go button 3 times and it will print a sheet showing the drum status.

Yeah, I have the HL-5250DN printer. The light


Hi there -

The reason the drum light keeps flashing is that you have to "reset" the machine after you've installed a new drum. To do this, I believe all you have to do is make sure the printer is on and then push and hold down the "GO" button a few seconds and then the flashing will stop. This will "reset" the printer to recognize you've installed a new drum. I'm going from memory on that, but I believe that's correct. It's a really simple solution. Good luck!

Drum


You just need to reset your drum counter. To do that, open up the printer and hold down the Go button for a few seconds, until the LED lights all light up (the toner, drum, and paper lights all should turn yellow). That should do the trick!
