Did you do the drum reset procedure when you replaced the drum? It was on the sheets of paper (aka instructions) that came with the drum unit.

What might cause my Brother HL-2040 to leave black blotches and an overall gray appearance on print outs?


if your drum is new and still you are getting a problem of dark background then you have to replace the toner cartridge.

Brother 2040 yellow toner light on & won't print. Toner just replaced 8 weeks ago. Printer purchased 6 months ago.


You have a one year warranty with Brother if you need repair. You might shake the toner, or put a small electrical tape over the little round windows on the toner cart. to use the rest of the toner, and press the go button 3 times to print the report that tells you how many prints you've made, you could just be out of toner again...

Drum light blinking


The light blinking means it's almost used up, when it comes on solid it will stop printing. If your prints still look good you can open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash, and it will think it's a new drum. You can replace then when print quality gets bad.

Drum light on will not print


its possible its not hooked up to your default current printer... try going to "start" then "settings" then "printers and faxes" then look for your printer name that you want to print with ex: Brother HL-2040 Laser should be there :D hope it helps

Printer prints a duplicate image. Is the drum dirty?


does the problem exist if you try your old cartridge (just for a test)? if it doesn't, then you have a defective toner. Otherwise it is coincidental, and you need to replace the Drum unit.

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.

BROTHER Hl 2040 PRINTER WON'T PRING


I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything. I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:
  1. Open the front panel.
  2. Remove the toner and the drum
  3. Remove the toner FROM the drum
  4. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. I put mine on the right side.
  5. Put everything back in.
  6. Turn on your printer if it's not already.
  7. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can really empty your cartridge.

Drum Light



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. please see my other post. as for not picking up give the feed roller a clean with metho and a rag, rubber roller under machine with cassete out it's about an inch wide and black.
