Why does the drum light blink on my brother hl-2140


The blinking indicates that the drum unit is near the end of it's life. It will shut down soon and you will lose the ability to print until it is changed or reset.
To reset the drum counter. Press and hold down the white button (shown as blue in the image below) for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the button.

Resetting the Drum counter on a Brother HL-2040


Hi.
Have you recently replaced the drum?
  • The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one.
  • The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
  1. Open the front cover of the printer.
  2. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.
  3. Close the front cover.
Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.

Power went out and back on; now printer won't print


I had the same problem after a resent power outage. Here's what fixed mine.

Turn the power switch off.
Wait a 15-20 seconds
While holding the button on the front panel down turn the power switch on.
After the drum light comes on release the button wait then press the button again.
Turn the machine off then back on again and you should be back in business.

To prevent the problem in the future if you are not using the printer turn it off and if the power goes off while printing get the printer turned off before the power comes back.

Alarm light only, doesn't print at all


Chances are that you have a piece of paper stuck in the printer. Open the rear door and check there first. If that's not it, remove the toner/drum assembly and check behind that. The other place to check is between the drum unit and the toner cartridge.
