Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer
As posted by Songdancer - this solution worked for my HL-1440 to reset the drum light
"Brother's webpage says to reset the drum counter. On some models this is done by opening up the front door, pressing the GO button until all 4 lights are lit, then releasing the GO button"

Following this approach worked for me:
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer.
3. Turn the printer back on.
4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.
5.Press and hold in the circular button on the front panel again. Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
After step 5, the printer should print a test page, and the drum indicator should turn off.

I did get the drum light to go off, and without replacing the drum.
Here is what I did:
The printers are pre-set to have the drum light come on after so many prints. Therefore, toner cartridges and drums may quit working, even when they have life left in them.

What is the make and model. They all reset differently.

I went onto the brother website. For the MFC 8460N you can do the following:
1) Open the front cover.
2) Press the clear/back key.
3) Press 1 to reset.
4) Close the front cover, pressing firmly on each side until they click into place.
This worked for our office machine.

Normally clearing the drum count the machine has to be on open front cover as if to change the drum press and hold the button in for about 10 second then release and shut the door. This should reset the count if not please get back to me and I'll check the service manual to see if anything in that.

I have the same problems with you guys, and none of the solutions above work.
I solved Brother HL-2040 with the following tricks
1. Use the link below to process steps 1-4 and stop.
2. Use screw driver to remove 3 screws on one side of the toner
3. From the small separate part after removed it from the toner, there is a small white adjustment (plastic), use your finger adjust to the opposite side. Put it back to the toner, and screw them back as original.
4. Follow the remain steps from the link above,
Your toner indicator should be turn OFF
