If you replaced the drum on your Brother HL-2270DW printer but the amber drum light is still on, then that means you need to reset the drum light on the printer. Often the people selling the drums don’t tell you that you need to reset the drum but I’ll walk you through it…
How to Reset the Drum on a Brother HL-2270DW Printer
Step 1: Open the front door of the printer.
This is the door you open to change the toner or drum. There’s no button to push down but if you grab at the edge where the flip-out paper tray thing is you can pull towards yourself and down and it will open up.

Step 2: Press and hold the Go button until ALL the lights come on.
They will come on one at a time, and stay on, from the top down.

Step 3: Release the Go button.
Once all the lights are on release the button. You may see an error light on but that is because you have the door open.
Step 4: Close the front door of the printer.
Now the only light that should be on is the “Ready” light. Your drum has been reset.
