The procedure for the factory inspection mode is as follows.
(1) Turn off the printer power switch, open the front cover, and remove the drum unit.
(2) Turn on the printer power switch while holding down the control panel button. The Drum
LED comes ON.
(3) Lightly press the panel button again.
(4) Check that all the LEDs except the Ready LED are OFF.
✒ If the toner sensor is ON, the Drum LED stays ON (error).
✒ If the front registration sensor is ON, the Alarm LED stays ON (error).
✒ If the upper paper cassette sensor is ON, the Data LED stays ON. (error) (HL-1250
only)
NOTE:
The lower paper cassette solenoid is turned ON/OFF even if the panel button is not pressed.
(5) Check the rear registration sensor.
✒ If the rear registration sensor is stuck backwards, the Ready LED stays OFF. (error)
✒ If the rear registration sensor is moved back and forth, the Ready LED comes ON at
any time. (error)
(6) Check that only the Data LED comes ON while pressing the panel button.
✒ If the paper eject sensor is ON, the Drum LED stays ON. (error)
✒ If the lower paper cassette registration sensor is ON, the Ready LED stays ON. (error)
If the registration sensor is ON, the lower paper cassette solenoid is turned ON, and
the Ready LED also stays ON. (HL-1250 only)
NOTE:
The lower paper cassette solenoid is turned ON/OFF even if the panel button is not pressed.

This is a paper jam error. Try reloading the paer if you can not find any paper stuck inside the printer. Then press the start button.

Brother HL-1440 LASER PRINTER requires ''Service Call A''.


currently, the error you have is not a service errorl, ready and alarm blink means that you have either a paper jam, no paper, or a paper misfeed.

do you get this error only when you try to print?
according to the service manual the lights can not alternate in blinking.

Blinking red and yellow light


Generally if both the (red) alarm LED and the (yellow) data LED are both blinking, it is an indication that the tone cartridge needs to be replaced. You should be close to out of cartridge.

According to the operation manual: If alarm light and data light blink every 5 seconds- TONER LOW (purchase more toner and have it ready when the 'toner empty' is indicated). If alarm light and data light stay lit- TONER EMPTY (replace toner cartrige with new one).
