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.

Why is the drum error message on after new drum installed and won't print


Hello, you need to reset the Drum Unit life:
After changing a DR2000 drum unit in a Brother HL-2040, the printer's page count needs to be reset. This will turn off the drum warning light on the printer.
Simply open the front cover, and hold the "GO" button until all four LED's are lit. Release the "GO" button and close the front cover.

I just changed the drum of the HL-2040. However, the drum light is still on and the error message says that the drum life is almost at its end.


Is this a NEW Genuine drum or one of those refurbished ones? Only genuine drums will work unless your were given some sort instructions on how to overcome the self check operation.

My Drum was replaced last week yet the light will not go off. So this means that we can not print on our 3 month old HL 2040 laser printer


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.

Brother HL 2040 problem


if the Drum LED is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.
Reset the Drum counter as follows:

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Locate the control panel button under the LED lights on the left side.
  3. Press the control panel button until all lights are lit, then release it.
    The Drum counter is now reset.

Printer drum light on


Have you already replaced the drum? If you have not replaced the drum that may be why you are getting smudges. If you have already replaced the drum, here is the reset procedure. 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: Open the front cover of the printer. 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. Close the front cover. CautionReset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.Related Models HL-2030, HL-2030R, HL-2040, HL-2040R, HL-2070N, HL-2070NR http://www.tonerovernight.com
