The drum has come to the end of its life. You should replace the drum assembly and reset the drum counter. Here is the procedure:
power off and open front door
hold down the continue button as you power on printer leaving front door open
when error light comes on release continue and close front door.
toner low, load paper, ready, and continue will all be lit.
press cancel slowly 4 times or until just toner low lights up. each time you press cancel, the light sequence should change
when just toner low is lit, press and hold continue button until lights cycle up and down in sequence.
release continue.. toner low will be lit again
turn printer off, wait 10 secs or so and then back on
press continue button to print off settings page and check under cartridge information, photoconductor value is 0K (zero)
This machine has a separate drum and toner cartridge. Replacing the toner does not reset the drum light. Double check that the light on is, in fact, the drum light, and if it is, replace the drum unit. This should resolve your problem.
In order to replace the drum unit, do this:
1) With the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover.
2) Press and hold the Go button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all LEDs light up, release the Go button.
3) Pull the print assembly out of the machine.
4) Push down the green lock lever to take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.
5) Put the toner cartridge into the new drum unit.
6) Reinsert the print assembly into the machine.
7) Close the front cover and verify that the lights turn off.
It is theoretically possible that you could reset the counter without actually changing the drum by simply skipping steps 3-6 above, but I have never tried it before and Brother may be checking a chip on the drum unit to verify that it is, in fact, a new drum unit. If they are, you will have to actually replace the unit to make the light go off. I would strongly recommend against resetting the counter without actually changing the drum though, as your print quality will degrade and the machine may start to dump toner into the inside creating a rather large mess and a hefty repair bill.
Hi Please follow the bellow instruction… Open the front panel. Remove the toner and the drum. Remove the toner from the drum. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. Put everything as it was. Turn on your printer. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on. Now, you can empty your cartridge. If the Drum light is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset. Reset the Drum counter as follows: Open the front cover. Locate the control panel button under the LED lights on the left side. Pres the control panel button until all lights are lit, and then release it.
Turn off the power using the switch on the back of the printer. Open the front door of the printer. Hold Continue button down, power on the printer, and continue to holding Continue down until the LEDs begin to flash. When the LEDs start to flash, release Continue button. The LEDs will continue flashing until only Error LED will be lit. Close the front door. Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load Paper LEDs should be lit. Wait till the printer completes the POST process. POST is complete when fan noise and rollers stops. After POST wait for 5 seconds Press Cancel button 4 times slowly until the Toner Low LED is lit. This is the procedure resetting the counter. Press and hold Continue until all LEDs begin to cycle in sequence, then release Continue. Now only the Toner Low LED will be lit. Cycle the power of the printer: Remove the power cable - Wait for 5 seconds - Plug the power cable back to the printer - Power the Printer on.
