The Brother printer is getting fairly lomg in the tooth. HL1230 started a few months back bringing up the Alarm light intermitantly (a press of the reset, or withdrawing & pressing home the toner mechanism fixed the Alarm) but then it started occuring 5-10 times a day. As well a more frequent creaking from the internal gearing, I let it retire.

I purchased a HL1430, connected it up, and within a day, it comes up with the same problem, Alarm light present, remove & press in the toner cartridge fixes the fault.

But, hey this shouldnt be happening.

So, any ideas out there whats going on?

the alarm light should also be with either toner or drum lights too.
