Error and drum lights are blinking i dont know what to do


First clean the corona wire. Next check for a paper jam. The drum is possibly at the end of life; the drum is part DR-360.

To clean the corona wire, remove the drum and toner assembly from the unit and gently move the green tab from right to left and then left to right several times. Return the tab to the home position before returning the unit to the printer. See http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000200/000008/faq000208_021.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2170w_all&Cat=7 for pictures.

To replace the drum, slide the drum and toner assembly out of the printer. Push down the green lever to unlock the toner cartridge and take it out of the drum. Unpack the new drum. Put the toner cartridge in the new drum. The green lever should lift automatically if you have the cartridge fully installed. Return the assembly to the printer. Then reset the drum counter by pressing and holding the white button until all 4 LEDs light. Then release the button. Finally close the front cover. Check that the Drum LED is off. For pictures, see http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000100/000054/faq000154_036.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2170w_all&Cat=7

I hope this helps.

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.
