Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
Drum light is on it still prints but have light ink smudge marks on paper
Have you already replaced the drum? If you have not replaced the drum that may be why you are getting smudges. If you have already replaced the drum, here is the reset procedure. The Drum LED blinks if the drum unit is near the end of its life. Use the drum unit until you have a print quality problem, then replace the drum unit with a new one. The Drum LED continues to blink if the drum counter was not reset when you replaced the drum. To reset the drum follow the instructions below: Open the front cover of the printer. Press and hold down Go button for about 4 seconds until al the LEDs light up. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button. Close the front cover. CautionReset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.Related Models HL-2030, HL-2030R, HL-2040, HL-2040R, HL-2070N, HL-2070NR http://www.tonerovernight.com
