Check the back of the printer. Open up the back door. There is a barely visible 2nd door which you need to open. Check to see if there is a paper jam behind this 2nd door. Often this is the problem and clearing this back paper jam will clear the red alarm light.

To print card stock you must us the manual slot in the front of the printer and feed one at a time. Also open the back flap door so the card stock can exit out the back instead of trying to bend around for the try. That will give you the staight paper path that your thick stock needs.

The manual will tell you that when the Drum light is on, that indicates Drum Life near end. Prepare to purchase a new drum very soon. I have added the link for the manual because it has the error codes listed. Good luck and make sure you read the pages on Replacing Drum before you begin.

You can set the Toner Save setting in the printer properties tab of your printer in the Windows or MAC environment. Your user manual does show where they are located. http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc002127/ZLe_UG_eng.pdf You can try this link to download the user manual from the Brother's website. It is a free PDF download.

The drum unit needs to be replaced as it has reached maximum prints for the drum.
The drum unit is the carriage part that the toner unit sits in before it is put in the machine.

Three Horizontal lines indicates a 'Light Burnt Drum'. The drum units are light sensitive. If they are left in the light too long they will be affected and it will show as black horizontal bars. The number of bars really depends on the circumference of the drum some are 2 some are 3 some can be 5 etc.

Solving this you can only replace the drum unit. Check with your local remanufacturing outlet to source a replacement drum unit at a price WAY better than buying new.

sounds you have a noisy scanner ... try disassembling the laser unit and clean the mirror bearing and the axle
but don't expect too much from it ... often is a waste of time....
