I think there is none. It will reset when you install a new cartridge.

When replacing the toner cartridge in the Brother HL-2040 with a new cartridge (compatible or remanufactured) the user may experience a problem with the toner light staying on, even with the new toner installed. The procedure below has worked for many folks, so give it a shot.

How do I pull out the toner cartrige of a HL 2040


Front panel of printer (manual paper feed is in the middle of this panel) has tabs on the right & left and will fold out and down. The toner/drum is right inside. there's an opening in the middle to grab it and pull straight out. The toner will separate from the drum unit by holding a small purple/blue tab on the left side down, and then lift up and out. Reverse this when putting everything back. remember to shake the toner right-left to loosen the toner before putting back in the unit. To reset the printer, and with the front door still open, hold the GO-Control button down until all lights are on, then let go, close up front door. Power off & back on and you should be set.

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.
