Brother HL-2240 Printer won't print

I have a HL-2240 printer that won't print. The printer worked with the included starter toner, but when I replaced it with a remanufactured toner, it printed about 5 pages perfectly. When I tried to print more, the toner light stayed on, but the printer wouldn't print. I don't see any sensor holes to cover up on the toner cartridge, and I've tried various sequences with the Go button. Now the Ready light is on, the toner light is off, but it still won't print. Much thanks for any solutions!

SOURCE: BROTHER Hl 2040 PRINTER WON'T PRING

I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything. I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:

  1. Open the front panel.
  2. Remove the toner and the drum
  3. Remove the toner FROM the drum
  4. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. I put mine on the right side.
  5. Put everything back in.
  6. Turn on your printer if it's not already.
  7. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can really empty your cartridge.

SOURCE: brother HL 2040 problem

if the Drum LED is still lit after replacing the drum unit, the Drum counter may not be reset.
Reset the Drum counter as follows:

  1. Open the front cover.
  2. Locate the control panel button under the LED lights on the left side.
  3. Press the control panel button until all lights are lit, then release it.
    The Drum counter is now reset.

SOURCE: Brother Printer 2150N - toner light has come on & toner is OK

Bought a 2150 in 2007. In 2008 toner light came on. Bought a new toner cartridge and installed. Light would not go off. Called Brother. They had us do the following:
1) Turn power off
2) Open front cover
3) Press white button (left side) 2 times and hold
4) Turn power on
5) Press white button 6 times and hold. All 3 lights should come on.
6) Close cover
7) Press blue button 3 times. Should print demo page.

We took the new cartridge out and saved it. The original is still working fine.

My Brother HL-2240 my printer started going crazy, printing one page over and over . . . well over 20 by the time I took action. I am not sure what I did to trigger that, but I couldn't figure


If there's an icon in the tray area that looks like a printer, double-click it to open, and click Printer, Cancel all documents. You might study the entries first to see why so many were printed. No icon? Open Control Panel, Printer, and double-click the printer for the same program.

Hl 2270 won't stop printing


I would guess you were trying to print a spread sheet or similar. It has nothing to do with the reset gear on the cartridge. You need to open your printers folder on the computer, open the print queue for the printer, and cancel all documents waiting to be printed. That may take more than one try. When you are ready to print again, be sure you know what is to be printed before committing.

Brother HL-5250DN Laser Printer TONER LIGHT ON & NO PRIN PAGE


When the toner light is on this means the toner is empty and needs to be replaced before it can print again. Replace the toner and you will be able to print again.
