Hi
Please follow the bellow instruction…
Open the front panel.
Remove the toner and the drum.
Remove the toner from the drum.
On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them.
Put everything as it was.
Turn on your printer.
Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can empty your cartridge.
If the Drum light is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.
Reset the Drum counter as follows:

Open the front cover.
Locate the control panel button under the LED lights on the left side.
Pres the control panel button until all lights are lit, and then release it.

The Drum counter is now reset.

How do i reset the brother dr350 drum


If you have already replaced the drum - only do steps 1, 2, 3, 7 and 8.

1. Make sure that the printer is turned on and the Drum LED is blinking. Open the front cover of the printer.

2. Press and hold the GO button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all four LEDs are lit, release the GO button.

3. Pull out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.

4. Push down the blue lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.

5. Unpack new drum unit.

6. Put the toner cartrisge firmly into the new drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put the cartridge in properly, the blue lock lever will lift automatically.

7. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly in the printer.

8. Close the front cover.

CC and drum Icon will not go out after changing toner cartridge


This Machine needs a copy cartridge. Replacing the toner will not clear it. The copy cartridge is the drum unit which is why the drum light is on. With the new copy cartridge a chip on the cartridge will reset the counter and clear the "CC" and the drum light. If you cant find this I can send you one. I believe on this model it is user replaceable.

BROTHER Hl 2040 PRINTER WON'T PRING


I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything. I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:
  1. Open the front panel.
  2. Remove the toner and the drum
  3. Remove the toner FROM the drum
  4. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. I put mine on the right side.
  5. Put everything back in.
  6. Turn on your printer if it's not already.
  7. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can really empty your cartridge.
