Question about Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer

4 Answers

HL 2070n I replaced the drum and the toner in the Brother HL-2070n and the drum light still flashes. By the directions it should have turned the light out. I have 2 Brother HL 2040 printers that have stopped printing when I changed the toner. I need to know if there is a fatcory default that I can do to get these printers to start working.

    so what your saying is that you do not know?

    --Yes, sorry to say we have had the same problem as well. As a mater of fact we have had it twice in a row with two different brother 2070n's. When we 1st recived this error message (drum lite flashing) we tried everything including changing the drum. It still stayed on. Because of the VERY high reviews we gambled and purchased a 2nd 2070n. It ran great for a few months and now has crapped out with the same yellow flashing light as the earlier unit. We are just plain frustrated with this problem

I was having the same problem with our 2070 N. Just like all of the instructions were suggesting, I held down the GO button for a few seconds until the lights started blinking. I tried it multiple times, but the Toner Light stayed on. The last time I tried it, I held it down a few seconds longer, until after the Green GO light came on (about 5-7 sec). After that, it worked just fine, with now Toner Light.

We have in our company several 2070 N and they all seem to have that problem that the toner keeps on flashing while we even replaced drum and toner. We had to buy several new ones.

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 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.

  4. When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
