Hi!
To solve your problem, disconnect the printer from it's power cord, wait 30 seconds, then reconnect it.

If that didn't help, press and hold down the printer's button until all LEDs turn on - then release the button.
Also, delete the printing job on the computer from which it was sent.

Good luck,
Pelu.

(blinking every 5 seconds)
Toner Low
Indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Purchase a new toner and have it ready for when Toner Empty is indicated.

(solid)
Toner Empty
Replace the toner cartridge with a new one.

Try to reinstall the drivers in the system once again to check functionality.

Turn off printer. Remove the power cable and try connecting to a differetn source after 30 seconds and turn on the printer.

If all four lights are blinking on and off, with no change on the alternate blinkings - then it is the CPU that has the problem. I don't know the cost involved in repairing/replacing that, but it might be cheaper than repalcing the printer.

If you do decide to replace the printer, I'd recommend going with the HL5240. I've upgraded from HL1440's to the HL5240 and have had great results overall. We put the units through an extreme workout, and they keep on trucking.

Hi, it just stopped printing 1/2 way through a job - and has the red alarm button and yellow data button on - ive taken paper out - ive check toner etc .... im running out of ideas ive tried switching off...


1. is it possible to print a test page (Press and hold down the control panel button while turning on the unit and hold it until the drum led comes on. Release the button and press it again. if a test print prints, then you need to contact brother about the specifics of your problem, if it does not print, then you have a main board issue.

this is based on the error you are telling me.

thanks adi

All lights are flashing not printing


Might have a paper jam in area of toner and drum cartridge that may need to be removed. Typically this will solve the issue.
