Hi, I had the exact same problem, drove me nuts :) Anyhow, after some research, I stumbled upon the official manual and it helped me. You can find it here - Brother HL-2240 manual

Thank you! That reset works! Brother walked me through that one time. None of my other Brother printers did this. This feature is a ploy that Brother created to sell more cartridges, undoubtedly.

I found this and it worked great.
1. Power Unit off
2. Open front cover
3. Press and hold GO and turn power on
4. When all 3 lights lit release and press GO twice
5. All lights turn solid
6. With all solid, press GO 5 times
7. Ready light GOes red
8. Close door and you're all set

Most Brother printers need manually reseting when either the drum or toner is replaced. Sometimes it doesn't need it and sometimes it does. Don't ask me why because I have no clue lol. What you do is open the Front Panel button that corresponds on the top with the blue botton. If you hold it from the inside of the printer until all the lights flash ontop of the pritner, then you let go and close the door. This should reset the printer. I hope this helps and I explained myself well lol

Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.
