Brother dcp 7040 prints and then prints too light


Before refilling, clean entire cartridge units. Remote its cleaning blade and clean it with an IP solutions and make sure no bends in cleaning blade. Do not mix new toner powder with old one. Also clean plastic portion below the developer roller also. Then the same complaint found, clean the LSU unit of the machine. Now it work properly.

Brother DCP-7040 Laser Printer Issue


With the computer off will the printer still make a copy? If the printer can still make a copy stand alone, then try deleteing the printer and reinstalling the printer driver.

Error message "put the black toner cartridge back in"


I got this same error message on a newly acquired Brother DCP-7040 that I purchased used off of ebay.

As I was troubleshooting this unit (that I bought untested off of ebay - hey gambling has paid off handsomely for me many times before!), this error message kept popping up.

I checked the COUNTERS (page & Drum life) and found out that the DRUM had 0% life left. BUT, the reason it showed ZERO was because this unit did not have any drum! The toner cartridge (TN-360) needs to sit WITHIN the drum (DR-360) on this DCP-7040 unit, as well as in models DCP-7030, MFC-7340, MFC-7345C, and MFC-7440N.

So perhaps some of these "put the black toner cartridge back in" problems could be related to the DRUM (or lack thereof). A possible tipoff (since the toner cartridge actually does slide into the unit much like other units that do not use Brother's DRUM carrier) seems to be the relative ease with which the toner cartridge slides into the DCP-7040 and really doesn't seem to "lock" into position real firmly.

I have a DCP-7040 Brother Laser printer. I am getting a lot of black lines when i print. I have tried cleaning the head of drum but that did nothing.


Two likely possibilities:

1. The drum is scratched by particles caught under the drum cleaning blade. Every copier or printer that has a drum leaves a little bit of toner on the drum that didn't get transferred to the paper. A soft plastic blade scrapes off that excess. If a chunk of fused toner or something gets caught under it, it can scrape a groove around the drum, resulting in a black line. Take a close look at the drum for scratches matching the lines you get. The cure is a new drum unit.

2. The fuser roller is scratched. Open up the back of the printer. The fuser is the assembly with labels warning about how hot it is. The final stage of the print process is to press the page between those two hot rollers, melting the toner into the paper. The hot roller is coated with Teflon to prevent pulling toner off the page and laying it back down where it doesn't belong, but like the drum, it can be scratched. You might be able to look for scratches on the hot roller with the help of a strong flashlight and magnifier. If it's scratched, you need a new hot roller or a complete new fuser.

Let us know what you find.

How to check the toner level of Brother printer


It has no accurate measure of the toner left, it is reset when you put in a fresh toner and just counts prints. The Brother shines a light thru a little window from right to left and when the toner is empty the light shines thru and it says it's empty.

Toner Life End message on DCP-7040


If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

Brother Toner Refills


Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:

www.tonerrefillstore.com

www.lasertekservices.com

They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!

You have a bad toner cartridge or a poorly remanufactured toner cartridge. This condition called "false toner low".
