    It is a brother HL-2040 printer that will not print. The toner comes on and it stops, even though I have replaced two new toners.

  • mamagina Oct 30, 2008

    Rhis did not work. The drum light is not on. Did I buy defective toners? I've gone through 3 of them.

  • mamagina Oct 30, 2008

    I did that - it still does not print.

    there's a possibi;ity that you have purchased a defective toner can you try to put the old toner back just to see if we wioll have the same result, but the best thing to do now since this is a new toner is to have it replace so we can check if the replacement will still have the same result or not....

    Also check for the Reset the Drum counter: Open it and press the control panel button untill all light glow, then leave it to come up normal. then insert the toner in drum, and then check for print.

Try removing the toner, then unplug power cord for ten minutes, then put toner back, and restart it.

See if this work if not there may be a problem with the drum.

    1. Make sure the toner cartridge is properly seated.

    2. If the single sheet slot has a door make sure the door is fully closed. Check for a jam or trash in the single sheet slot.

    3. If you have a spray can of air try blowing out the interior of the printer. I wouldn't buy a can for just this as it probably wont help.

    4. Unplug the printer. Using a spray can of electronics cleaner clean the rollers. Also spray around all buttons and make sure they are not sticking,

SOURCE: TONER LIGHT STAYS ON WITH NEW TONER CARTRIDGE

Hi,

If the main problem is just the toner light on then what you could do after installing the new toner is resetting the printer. You could do that by powering the printer off, open the front cover (as if you were to replace the toner) with the front cover open and the printer off push and hold the two buttons on the printer and turn the printer on while holding down the buttons then once the bottom light stays on solid, release the two buttons and that should reset the printer.
Now if the toner light is blinking that means that you have reached the 30,000 page mark and the Photoconductor needs to be replaced. If that is not the case you can follow this link to a procedure where it will explain how to reset the Photoconductor. http://bit.ly/91SWS3

HP Color Laserjet Cp2025n Printer - driver says it's out of toner and won't print. No true. I put in new toner cartridge last week. How do I get it toreceognize the new toner?


Did you purchase a new OEM HP toner or a refilled or remanufactured toner. It is possible that the chip is bad on the cartridge in which case if it is a true HP cartridge have them replace it. If you purchased 3rd party go after the vendor to replace it.

The toner may be low or nearly run out. Remove the toner cartridge and give it a shake in a horizontal position, then replace the toner cartridge in the printer. This may give you a few more prints.
If not you need to replace the toner cartridge with a new Canon toner cartridge, or purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your model laser printer. These re-manufactured laser cartridges are approx. half the cost of a new toner cartridge.

Toner is not out of ink but it lights up, refusing to print


In most cases cartridges have a special chip that remembers the toner cartridge serial number an amount of pages printed from it. This means, that even though there still might be some toner left in the cartridge, the chip's counter reaches it's predefined limit and informs printer, that the toner has run out. Just like that, suddenly.
It may also be the case, that the chip loses contact with the printer's electrical terminals - try reseating the cartridge in the printer. If that doesn't help, it's time to replace it I'm afraid.
Usually the printer will inform "toner low" for some time before it becomes "toner out" and refuses to print. If you get "toner low", then it's time to purchase a new cartridge to have it ready.

How do i change the print cartridge?


Replacing the print cartridge
  1. Open the print cartridge door, and remove the old print cartridge. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, minimize its exposure to direct light by covering it with a sheet of paper. Figure 1: Removing the print cartridge c01174123.jpg
  2. Remove the new print cartridge from the packaging. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the print cartridge, hold the print cartridge at each end.
  3. Pull the tab until all the tape is removed from the cartridge. Put the tab in the print cartridge box to return for recycling. Figure 2: Removing the sealing tape c01211568.jpg
  4. Gently rock the toner cartridge from front to back to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Figure 3: Shaking the print cartridge c01211569.jpg
  5. Insert the print cartridge in the device and close the print cartridge door. Figure 4: Inserting the print cartridge c01174125.jpg CAUTION: If toner gets on your clothing, wipe it off with a dry cloth and wash the clothing in cold water. Hot water sets toner into the fabric.

NOTE: When toner is low, faded or light areas appear on the printed page. You might be able to temporarily improve print quality by redistributing the toner. To redistribute the toner, remove the cartridge from the device and gently rock it from front to back.
