Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
All four lights flashing indicated a problem only a service center can repair.
Press the Go button and a new set of indicators will appear.
The yellow toner light only indicates a fuser unit failure.
The yellow drum light only indicates a laser unit failure.
The yellow toner light AND the red paper light indicates a main motor failure.
The red paper light only indicates a PCB failure (Printed Circuit Board).
The only thing you can do at this point is to actually UNPLUG the power cord for 24 hours and then retry or if that fails take it to a service center or better yet go pay the $89 for a new unit.
Hope this helps.
