My drum light came on at it will not print


If your print quality was still good before it quit then I would just reset the light.
Just open the front door of the printer, then press and HOLD the GO button for about 4 seconds until all the lights light up. Then release the button and close the front door.
This will reset the light but I would have a drum unit handy in case you start to have print quality issues down the road.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

How long will the drum last on a Brother HL 5140 when the yellow drum light starts flashing


I have reused the drum for three life cycles and the print quality is still good. Just reset the counter until the print quality suffers because the cost of the drum exceeds the price of a new printer. According to Brother to reset the counter
  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Press and hold the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on.
  3. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button.
  4. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.
