What could be the problem with my printer? The toner button keeps flashing. I already replaced the ink cartridge on the printer, but the only thing the printer will allow me to print is the device...


Hi

If you have done more that 30,000 prints then I would think the flashing light means you need to replace the drum in the laser printer

Yellow light is blinking?


If the bottom amber colored light is blinking, the imaging drum needs replaced.

If the yellow print cartridge light is blinking, then replace the print cartridge (yellow toner).

We have a Brother HL 2140 series the printer will not print. It has a new toner cart. The drum light is lit . Any suggestions?


This machine has a separate drum and toner cartridge. Replacing the toner does not reset the drum light. Double check that the light on is, in fact, the drum light, and if it is, replace the drum unit. This should resolve your problem.
In order to replace the drum unit, do this: 1) With the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover. 2) Press and hold the Go button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all LEDs light up, release the Go button. 3) Pull the print assembly out of the machine. 4) Push down the green lock lever to take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. 5) Put the toner cartridge into the new drum unit. 6) Reinsert the print assembly into the machine. 7) Close the front cover and verify that the lights turn off.
It is theoretically possible that you could reset the counter without actually changing the drum by simply skipping steps 3-6 above, but I have never tried it before and Brother may be checking a chip on the drum unit to verify that it is, in fact, a new drum unit. If they are, you will have to actually replace the unit to make the light go off. I would strongly recommend against resetting the counter without actually changing the drum though, as your print quality will degrade and the machine may start to dump toner into the inside creating a rather large mess and a hefty repair bill.

My Brother HL-2140 Went out in a storm. All three lights just keep blinking no matter what I do. Held down on the blue light button a number of time, restarted computer, turned off printer, reloaded ink...

Toner low
Indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Buy a new toner cartridge and have
it ready for when Toner life end is indicated.

3) If the DRUM LED is blinking:
Drum life end soon
The drum unit is near the end of its life. We recommend that you get a new drum unit
to replace the current one. See Replacing the drum unit on page 69.
The Drum LED will turn on for 2 seconds and off for 3 seconds.
4) If the RED ERROR LED is blinking:
Front cover is open
Close the front cover of the printer.
Fuser cover is open
Close the fuser cover located behind the back cover of the printer.
Paper jam
Clear the paper jam. See Paper jams and how to clear them on page 85. If the printer
does not start printing, press the Go button.

The printer memory is full and the printer cannot print full pages of a document.
