I have a brother printer 2140 and the drum light stays on :0


You have to open the door and hold the go button til all lights flash. That tells the printer it has a new drum. After that press the go button 3 times and it will print a report that shows the drum as new...

Drum Light is flashing yellow


Drum light flashing yellow means the drum is near it's end-of-life. There is some life left in the drum at this point. Do the following to get some more mileage out of your current drum and also when you finally do replace it (this resets the drum counter):

  • Printer on and paper loaded
  • Press and hold blue button until all LEDs light up
  • Release button

Brother HL-5240 drum light flashing


Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

Thanks J
