I have a brother HL_2140 laser printer I just changed the ink cartage and now the Drum light is flashing on and off and it wont print?


That means you drum will finish soon, once the drum light become on you can not print, start looking for the new drum price and get it, once the drum light become on open the front door, take out the toner and drum, with the front door open press go button and keep it down until the 4 lights of the printer become on, release the button and install the new drum with the cartridge.

How do you replace the drum properly on a Brother HL-5240


Out with the old and in with the new, you remove the toner and drum together, remove the toner from the old drum by pressing the blue lever on the side, install the toner in the new drum, and re install in the printer. With the front door open press the go button til all lights flash and then close the door, the new drum is reset.

Brother 5250dn drum light blinking; I think drum is ok because I put drum from another working printer and the drum light continued to blink.


The drum light is on due to a preset counter to notify you that the drum has reached the end of Normal Usage life expectancy. It doesn't mean that it has failed, yet...but soon. I would suggest having a new drum on hand for when print quality starts failing. Either new drum units have a reset fuse in them to clear the warning light, or there is a reset proceedure to use after installing the new drum unit.

Yeah, I have the HL-5250DN printer. The light


Hi there -

The reason the drum light keeps flashing is that you have to "reset" the machine after you've installed a new drum. To do this, I believe all you have to do is make sure the printer is on and then push and hold down the "GO" button a few seconds and then the flashing will stop. This will "reset" the printer to recognize you've installed a new drum. I'm going from memory on that, but I believe that's correct. It's a really simple solution. Good luck!

New drum and the copies are extremly light


Drum may be defective must be repalced.

When replacing drum, be sure to reset the drum counter for HL 5150D:
-Open the toner compartment door, and hold the go button for 5 seconds.

Replacing Drum Catridge


Hello, Here are the steps involved in replacing the drum assembly as copied from a users manual:

DRUM CARTRIDGE REPLACEMENT
The useful life of the drum cartridge is approximately 18,000 copies. When the internal counter reaches approximately 17,000 copies, the drum replacement required indicator will light up indicating that replacement of the drum cartridge will be needed soon. When the indicator begins to blink, the unit will stop operating until the cartridge is replaced. Replace the drum cartridge at this time.


1 Remove the TD cartridge (Toner Cartridge). Hold the drum cartridge handle and
gently pull the cartridge out. Dispose of the old drum cartridge in accordance with local regulations.
3 Remove the new drum cartridge from the protective bag and remove the protective cover from the cartridge. Then gently install the new drum cartridge.


When closing the covers, be sure to close the front cover securely and then close the side cover. If the covers are closed in the wrong order, the covers may be damaged. Do not remove the protective cover on the drum portion (black paper) of
a new drum cartridge before use. The cover protects the drum against external light.
Do not touch the surface of the drum (green portion) of the cartridge. Doing so may cause smudges on the copies.


4 Gently install the TD cartridge. Close the front cover and then the side cover by pressing the round projections near the side cover open button. The drum
replacement required indicator will go out and the start indicator will light up.

Drum light is on


After looking all over the place for the solution, I found it while browsing other printers with the same problem. Of course if your light is on and you havent replaced the drum, you need a new drum. FOR THOSE WHO INSTALLED A NEW DRUM, HERE IS WHAT FIXED MINE.
1.) Remove the drum
2.) With the drum out and the door open, Hold the "GO" button down until all of the lights light up yellow in order.
3.) Replace the drum, close the door, and hit the "GO" button once.
4.) Rejoice in the fact that the light will no longer drive you crazy. My guess is that it is a reset for the levels, either way, on my Brother HL-5250DN is back at its single green "Status" light greatness.
5.) Good Luck with yours.

This is my first post. I hope it helped. This site is a great idea.
