With the front cover open,
press and hold down Go button until all 4 LEDs are lit. Once all 4 LEDs
are lit, release the go button, then close the front cover.
This will reset the drum counter.

SOURCE: HL 2140 does not print
This is a common problem to your brother printer model 2140. You need to turn off your printer and take out the toner. Look for the side and you will see a small hole on both sides. This is the sensor. You need to cover it with electrical tape.
Here is a detailed video on how to do it:
Good luck and hope this helps you.

Testimonial: ""Thank you so much! it saved me valuable money!!""
The blinking indicates that the drum unit is near the end of it's life. It will shut down soon and you will lose the ability to print until it is changed or reset.
To reset the drum counter. Press and hold down the white button (shown as blue in the image below) for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the button.
