Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
Here's what a drum looks like (nice picture from Amazon)
Instruction guide from Brother Printer's website show to install / replace one. (You pop open the front cover much like an oven door to get to the drum).
You might still have plenty of toner in your drum. If you're willing to pull out the drum, you might gently shake it -- left to right a few times and perhaps back to front -- but never upside down!
It might redistribute the toner and allow you to print some more while you await for a replacement.
Good luck !
