Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
Sounds like it's time for a new drum but, here's the reset procedure that should make the drum light go off and allow printing.
Make sure the machine is turned on and the drum light is blinking. Press and hold the "GO" button for 4 seconds (approx.) until all four lights are lit. When all four are lit, release the "GO" button. Make sure the drum light is off now. The drum is now reset.
THIS WILL NOT IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF PRINT as the drum will need to be replaced in order to do that but it will allow you to continue using the drum until it reaches and unacceptable quality.
Hope that helps you.
