Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Drum Light My printer is relatively new (about 3 months old) and for the last few days the drum light has been blinking.  On occasion it will also tell me that I'm out of paper and not print when I know there is paper in the tray. I don't know if these things are related but I'm looking for a solution.

The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one. please see my other post. as for not picking up give the feed roller a clean with metho and a rag, rubber roller under machine with cassete out it's about an inch wide and black.

Hi, we have the hp color laserjet 2840 series and we are getting a supply error (10.1004). The picture shows that there is a problem with our imaging drum. We bought a brand new imagind drum and it is...


Reseat the toner cartridge. Turn the printer off, and then back on again. You may want to try a new cartridge, but if that does not eliminate the error, call your HP support line. If the imaging-drum light is still blinking but the Attention light is not on, you must replace the imaging drum before the printer can continue printing. The imaging-drum light might be blinking by itself or at the same time another light is on or blinking. If another light is also on or blinking, turn the imaging-drum light off in the simulator and turn the other light on or blinking to isolate the condition. The printer has determined that it cannot read or write to the e-label on the imaging drum.Reseat the imaging drum, and then power cycle the printer. If this does not work, replace the imaging drum. If the imaging drum light is still blinking but the Attention light is not on, turn the printer off, and then back on. If the problem persists, replace the imaging drum E-label reader. The imaging-drum light might be blinking by itself or at the same time another light is on or blinking. If another light is also on or blinking, turn the imaging-drum light off in the simulator and turn the other light on or blinking to isolate the condition.

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.

New drum wont work


It sounds to me that your maint counter needs to be reset. 24-7 will reset drum. Let me know if you need help getting into the simulation.

Replaced printer drum but still printing with vertical lines


Hi dermtex,
since the faint lines are vertical, I think there is some thing distored the laser beam, try clean the lenses of the laser unit by clean soft cloth.

My Drum was replaced last week yet the light will not go off. So this means that we can not print on our 3 month old HL 2040 laser printer


Did you do the drum reset procedure when you replaced the drum? It was on the sheets of paper (aka instructions) that came with the drum unit.

"Clean drum" doesn't get rid of smears.


Need to change cartridge, the residue is not being cleaned off by the Drum Blade.

Printer drum light on


Have you already replaced the drum? If you have not replaced the drum that may be why you are getting smudges. If you have already replaced the drum, here is the reset procedure. The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one. The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below: Open the front cover of the printer. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button. Close the front cover. CautionReset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.Related Models HL-2030, HL-2030R, HL-2040, HL-2040R, HL-2070N, HL-2070NR http://www.tonerovernight.com
