Brother Hl 2140 Drum Light Flashing – We have a Brother HL-2140 laser printer for sale that we bought to replace an old ink jet printer. So far so good. The only problem we have is that the software used to detect when you need to replace the toner is intentionally or unintentionally _very_ inaccurate.
The reason we get a laser printer is because we regularly refill ink cartridges and ink jet supplies. So far, we haven’t stopped using the same toner cartridges in new printers (despite what the software would have you believe).

An easy way to tell when you’re running out of toner is that the prints will start to fade. This is not the first case that the software tells us that we have no shade. One of the bad “strategies” of this software is that if it thinks you are low on toner, you have no other choice but to replace the toner before it allows you to print.

So we have to fool the printer into thinking that the toner is good (which it is). The first step in doing this is to hold the post-it note on a piece of tape. Fold the post-it note into a small square and place it over the opening in the toner cartridge. This is what the printer uses to check the toner level.
At first, I covered the space with a piece of tape and made it black. Although that was temporary, the software soon returned to an empty toner cartridge and prevented me from printing.
Next, you need to put the toner cartridge back into the printer, being careful to make sure the post-it + tape stays in place.
When you put it back in the printer, you should be able to turn it on and make sure that the Toner light is off. The software will let you print regardless of how much toner is left.
