This just means that your drum life has nearly reached his end.
Note that when you replace the drum you need to perform the drum counter reset procedure, otherwise the leds will keep on burning after replacing the drum unit.

Wont print ready light and alarm light flashing


When the printer "Ready" and "Alarm" LEDs flash as shown, please check the following points:
1.Paper Jam: Clear the paper jam referring to "How do I clear paper jams?"
If the printer does not automatically resume printing, press the control panel button.
2.No Paper/ Misfeed:
-The paper cassette may be out of paper or not properly installed.
-If it is empty, load a new stack of paper into the paper cassette.
-If there is paper in the paper cassette, make sure it is straight.
-If the paper is curled, straighten it before printing. Sometimes it is helpful to remove the paper, turn the stack over and put it back in the paper cassette.
-Reduce the amount of paper in the paper cassette, and then try again.
-Make sure you use paper that meets Brother's recommended paper specifications.
-Reinstall the paper properly, and then press the control panel button. The printer will start printing again.

All lights are flashing not printing


Might have a paper jam in area of toner and drum cartridge that may need to be removed. Typically this will solve the issue.

The procedure for the factory inspection mode is as follows.

(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)
