Question about Brother HL 1240 Printer

Drum light stays on after having replaced the drum unit

Since my drum light was on for a while yet, I decided to replace the drum unit. After having done that following the instructions, the drum warning light is still on. Is there a procedure to put some counter or sensor back to zero or what do I have to do to make it go off?

    Have the same problem and tried the solution of depressing the button until all LEDs were on but didn't fix the problem. Is there another solution? GeoffM.

Thanks for the tip. It worked; the drum light is now off. I couldn't find help in any of the literature that came with my printer.
