All lights flashing on front - drum, ready, alarm, data. All four flash once then just Drum flashes once and it keeps repeating. What does this mean? If it's replace the drum, how to I do that?


R U getting a message that tells U to change the drum on the printers LCD screen? Also what type of printer R we talking about - if its an HL 1240 - that is an older machine so unless U have a bunch of toner cartridges for it it is not worth spending a lot of money on. Call the dealer and see what they have to say and then decide how to proceed - I do recommend the brother mono laser printers - I think they are the best all around value and no I do not sell brother printers or have any affiliation

ALL THE LIGHTS ARE FLASHING . I HAVE CHANGED TONER AND DRUM AND STILL FLASHING


When you change drum, do you reset it?

If not, try this:
Install the toner cartridge into the new
drum unit until it locks into place,
indicated by a click. When the toner
cartridge is installed correctly, the lock
lever is lifted automatically.
Press the control panel button until all the LEDs are on. (The LED turns on in sequence
from top to bottom.) The drum page counter is reset.
Close the front cover, and check that the Drum LED is now off.

All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!


When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

All lights are flashing not printing


Might have a paper jam in area of toner and drum cartridge that may need to be removed. Typically this will solve the issue.

Brothers HL 1240 Alarm light on


Pull the drum out the front door, remove the toner cartridge and check for any paper and remove it.

Make sure there is toner in the toner cartridge. Look at the lights on the printer. Look at the labels beside them. The label "Toner" will have two lines going to two lights. If those two lights are on when you try to print, you are out of toner. But a now toner and install it in the drum. Install the drum back into the printer.

If not, look at the drum. At the rear top is an opening across the whole drum. Look inside it, you will see a metal grid. That grid must be clean or it will cause small sparks. These sparks will cause a false toner empty error. Buy a can of compressed air from Best Buy (or wherever). Use this compressed air to blow clean the grid. Move the small blue tab at one side of the opening ti the other side and back again. Reinstall the drum and try printing again.

If neither of those help, write back and let me know what lights stay on when the printer stops.
