No it isn't, toner does not distribute evenly from the cartridge, when it says it is out you often can shake it and get another few weeks out of it. However, when you get to the point your shaking after every job, stop. I have been told the printer can be damaged by running a cartridge bone dry.

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).

How to replace drum?


Replacing the drum on these machines is pretty simple. Leaving the power on, open the hatch at the front and remove the toner/drum assembly inside. You may need to lift it slightly then pull toward youself firmly. The toner cartridge sits inside the drum unit. Depress the green tab on the left corner and lift the toner cartridge out. Transfer the toner cartridge to the new or rebuilt drum (DR2125), press it firmly in to place. Return the drum/toner assembly to the printer, pushing it in as far as it will go. Press and hold the red stud left hand side in line with the lights until ALL the lights are on. Then release the stud and close the front hatch. and you have replaced the drum and reset the drum page count. The machine should then have only the blue ready light on

I am using samsung Ml 1640 Mono Laser Printer .After finishing Toner Ink I refilled it and set the toner into the printer . Then both of the lights Green & Red light is glowing but the Red light is...


Samsung uses a chip that senses when the cartridge has ended its service life, the chip is located in the cartridge itself, refilling toner won't help, replace the cartridge with a new one. hope this helps ;-)

Hello sir my brother tn-3250 laser toner blinking yellow light


Toner Blinking yellow LED indicates that the toner cartridge is nearly empty. Buy a new toner cartridge or refill the cartridge. Refilling the TN cartridges is quite simple and you can do it yourself.
It is a very simple process. Please refer to this video.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Good Luck!
Appreciate generously, if the solution could have been of any help!

Drum light flashes


This means that you will need to replace the drum soon. Order a new drum and when the light becomes steady or the print quality becomes poor, replace the drum. The drum should last ~12,000 pages. The part number is DR350. You may be able to order this from your Office Supply store; otherwise try the Brother Mall site: http://www.brothermall.com/Accessories/AccessoryDetail.aspx?AccessID=DR350&AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 .

The procedure is similar to replacing the toner but instead of putting a new thing of toner inside the drum, you remove the toner and put it in the new drum. Open the front cover and pull out the drum and toner assembly. Place on newspaper or other disposable material (toner may spill). Push down the blue lever to unlock the toner cartridge. Remove the cartridge from the drum. Unpack the new drum (keep it out of the light until ready to replace the drum). Push the toner cartridge into the new drum until it locks into place; the blue lever should lift automatically. Put the assembly back in the printer. Clean the printer as recommended in the manual while it is open; this includes cleaning the corona wire before replacing the drum assembly.

After replacing the drum, reset the drum counter: with the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover and press and hold the GO button until all of the LEDs light up (about 4 seconds). Then release the GO button and close the cover. Check that the drum light is off. (The manual says you should do the reset first but I tend to avoid this in case of distractions.)

I hope this helps.

The yellow spot is blinking and the black dot is


the solid light means toner is low. Blinking usually means either the cartridge is out of toner or the cartridge is having a technical problem. If you pull the yellow toner cartridge and put it back in with no change in result, you will need to replace the yellow toner cartidge

Blinking red and yellow light


Generally if both the (red) alarm LED and the (yellow) data LED are both blinking, it is an indication that the tone cartridge needs to be replaced. You should be close to out of cartridge.

 The print cartridge is
empty or missing.

then back on.
3. If the problem persists, repeat the above steps
with yellow print cartridges until the error is
