Replace the drum. It is the device that the toner cartridge sits in. You can also take out the drum and see if there is a 'slide' that cleans the drum, slide it back and forth several times and make sure it is 'locked' into the park area. Also refer to Brother manual or their web site for further answers.

My printer drum light is lit and will not copy. I have put in a new drum and the is still lit and will not copy


Hi
Please follow the bellow instruction…
Open the front panel.
Remove the toner and the drum.
Remove the toner from the drum.
On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them.
Put everything as it was.
Turn on your printer.
Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can empty your cartridge.
If the Drum light is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.
Reset the Drum counter as follows:

Open the front cover.
Locate the control panel button under the LED lights on the left side.
Pres the control panel button until all lights are lit, and then release it.

The Drum counter is now reset.


Thanks for contacting fixya.com

How do i reset the brother dr350 drum


If you have already replaced the drum - only do steps 1, 2, 3, 7 and 8.

1. Make sure that the printer is turned on and the Drum LED is blinking. Open the front cover of the printer.

2. Press and hold the GO button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all four LEDs are lit, release the GO button.

3. Pull out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.

4. Push down the blue lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.

5. Unpack new drum unit.

6. Put the toner cartrisge firmly into the new drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put the cartridge in properly, the blue lock lever will lift automatically.

7. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly in the printer.

8. Close the front cover.

Sounds to me like the toner - that is the toner cartridge has the wrong toner in it. The drum should be OK - clean it up first and then use a genuine toner cartridge OR you can buy our refill kit on eBay - search for Brother HL2040 - michellem6123
