    I have a brother hl-5040 laser printer, I remplace the drum but the light steel on. What's the problem

  • sign1 fixya Aug 24, 2008

    the printer reports being out of toner, despite its being nearly full. removing the toner cartridge and shaking it fixes the problem temporarily (i.e., the printer will print a few more pages perfectly before requiring another shake. this is terribly annoying

You need to have the front of the printer open, when you press and hold the 'Go' button. All four lights will come on, in sequence. Release the button, and close the front cover. Done...

Press and hold down the Go button for about 4 seconds
until all the LEDs light up. Once all four LEDs are lit,
release the Go button. This resets the 15,000 page drum use counter.

    According to the device manual, this key sequence is supposed to be performed before you replace the drum.

    Maybe try doing the key sequence, then open the printer to remove and replace the drum again? That might do the trick.

Cover the circular windows on the side of the printer cartridge with black electrical tape. (The printer uses these to measure the toner level.) Covering them worked perfectly for me.

Same problem with the Toner light flashing, after replacing Toner (3rd Party purchase, not Brother). None of these tricks work for me either.
Might there be some problem with the new Toner Cartridge?

Posted on Nov 27, 2008

None of these suggestions work.

my lights flash and flash

Posted on Sep 15, 2008

I finally cleared for me when I first took the drum out, left the door open and held the go button down.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

Drum light still on when toner has been replaced


You need to replace the drum and reset the printer for that to go away, open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash and the drum is reset. If quality is OK you can keep using the old drum. If you press the go button 3 times it will give a report showing the life left in the drum.

Brother HL-2140 Error light is flashing


Try to unplug the power from the print, wait 1 minute then plug back in.

This may remove the error.

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.

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.

Brother HL 2070N Drum Unit changed but printing with dots on the left hand side


If toner leaked into the machine and got on the fuser that could cause this, but the dots would go away after a few prints. Try another drum unit.
