    everything works perfectly but the drum blinks

  • Anonymous Dec 31, 2008

    My drum light is on steady after only 19% of the drum life was used (2,187 copies). I called Brother and they did nothing for me since the unit is past it's 90 day warranty. The drum service life is approx. 12,000 copies.



    I was satisfied with this printer's performance until this happened. I feel Brother International should have at least offered to pro-rate the cost of a new drum. Very dissatisfied with Brother International.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Brother HL 2040 drum light flashing after drum replacement

The drum light is triggered by a page counter. To reset it, hold the GO button with the drum door opened until the light goes out (10 seconds). Close the door and it should be reset.

My printer brother hl-2040 drum light is blinking what is the problem


Time for you to replace the laser drum unit in the printer.

the drum units have a life cycle of about 5000 pages and then need to be replaced. Order a new one from Office Depot and simply swap the units.

Cheers,

The drum light has come on, on my brother hl-2040


The drum is a consumable item; it wears out after so long so the drum will have to be replaced.

The drum light is flashing and I just changed the toner this morning. Not sure where I can either buy a new drum, or if I will need a new printer (which I hope not, I love this printer!)


Yes you can replace just the drum in the printer. If you think it may be under warranty give brother a call. Their number is: 877-276-8437

If you don't think it's under warranty then you can find a replacement drum for around $40, just google: Brother HL-2040 drum

DRUM LIGHT KEEP FLASHING


Take the drum out and wrap it up to keep the light out of it.  Check the contacts inside the printer and make sure there is nothing broken on them.  If there is toner on them, try to clean them off.

Drum Error Light


Yes, the DRUM UNIT has reached the end of its life and must be replaced. You can order a new one from BROTHER,or a local office supply store may have it in stock. It is easy to replace, instructions are included, and when the new one is installed, the DRUM ERROR LIGHT will turn off , and the machine will be ready to use.
