Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer
If you have cleaned the corona wire & still get the message it's probably dust around the sensor.
Take the drum out of the printer, remove the toner, put the drum itself immediately into a black bin bag (drums are sensitive to light and should not be exposed for more than a few moments at a time) then get a compressed air pump (the small electric DIY ones you can buy for your car tyres are ideal) and using the most suitable attachment (i.e. the one to blow up footballs or airbeds), keeping the drum in the opened bin bag (to catch the dust and minimise the light, blow all around the corona wire area, particularly at both ends where the contacts are and while you are at it you can blow the rest of the drum to remove excess dust etc.
That should cure your problem but if not, get a large hammer and have a bit of fun then go out and buy a new printer - the heatache isn't worth it !!

Dust on drum is an issue with the corona wire. Use the blue tab on top of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth 10+ times and this should correct your issue.
