Sometimes in this condition, since the machine is entering old toner in the waist canister, the ink got backed up in the drum modual.
The door was closed, the ink backed up.
When inserting a cartridge check to mbe sure the cartridges are fully seated in the machine, and the small trap door is out of the way so the exess ink can go into the waist canistrer.
If replacing the cartridge run some copies and see if the clicking noise goes away. It might take a few copies to get the rest of the backed up ink from the ink cartrige to settle out.
Be prepared if this problem comes back, both drum and toner cartridges need to be replaced at the same time.
Good luck.

It really sounds like a defective cartridge. There is a metering blade in there that puts the right amount of ink onthe roller, if its not right it will just throw it into the machine.
You need to vacuum the machine out, return the cartridge for a new one.

How do I change the toner?


The manual will explain in great detail how to replace the toner cartridge. Please take care do it as said, because just a spec of dust, or a scrap of paper (plastic) on the chip, also can cause the error notice. Even with a brand new cartridge.

Tip

Getting Full Yield in Brother Printers - Preventing Early Supply Failures


Brother laser printers, fax machines and multifunctions all use a toner reclaim system. That means the used or left over toner (along with paper dust and debri) is recycled into the new toner cartridge supply. There is no waste section for the leftover toner and debri. This design is efficient however their are some short falls that you need to address. The toner cartridge supply is slowly contaminated with debri and dust that will send the cartridge down prematurely if your not using a good quality paper.

In addition, Brother Drum Units (ie DR-400, DR-500, DR-510, etc...) are expensive and suffer from the same premature failure problems. There is a charging brush and transfer roller inside the front top inside of the drum that drags on the drum surface to charge and discharge it properly for toner transfer. If you use poor quality the built up paper dust and debri interferes with this system and ultimately prevents it from working prperly. Here's a photo of a newer drum that failed due to the use of poor paper. Note the paper dust embedded in the transfer roller (top), caught up in the charge brush (center) and actually laying on the drum (bottom).

Here's a closeup of the charge brush so you can see the problem better below.

Below is the damage that bad paper caused. This DR-520 drum pictured is rated for 25,000 pages but due to low quality paper lasted just over 7,000. This was caused by a "Store Brand" paper.

Here below is a photo of the inside of a brother toner cartridge contaminated with paper dust and debri due to la ow quality super store brand paper. Note all the white paper dust in the toner.

To get the full yield from your Brother supplies, simply use GOOD QUALITY PAPER. STAY AWAY FROM STORE BRAND PAPERS as they go out on low price bid rather than to meet a tight quality standard. I would recommend a HP Brand paper as it's an "ALWAYS KNOWN GOOD" paper. The cheapest on the HP branded papers is HP Office and it works well.

Hope this has helped you understand the importance of using good quality paper in your brother machines. If you found this helpful, please rate it with a FIXYA as significant time and effort was used to help you.

Thanks and Happy Printing

I JUST BOUGHT A SHARP AR-5127 COPIER..WHEN IT COPIES, IT BRINGS OUT BLANK PAPER. I REMOVED THE CATRIDGE AND IF I TURN IT UPSIDE DOWN,SOME BLACK DUST COMES OUT...PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME


Hi iheanyippaul,

I see you concern, I believe you will need to check your toner if it is placed properly inside the machine seems that it is not locked/latched in its place to be able to print properly reason why you get a blank paper and black dust when printing.

Remove the Toner and re insert it again making sure the toner is set properly inside and also make sure the correct toner cartridge is installed, an incorrect or incompatible toner can cause issue of not getting to print anything on the paper or possibly not fit inside the machine correctly.

I hope this helps.

Have a nice day,

There is ink inside the area where the paper is stored and also gets all over any paper printed. How do we clean all this up.


Remove the toner/drum unit and vacuum the spilled toner dust up. Get a torch and make sure to vacuum all of toner dust in paper path. Also check the drum & toner unit to see if there is a spillage coming from them.

Just copy file..always jam..messagge"papper jam


Causes for paper jams in Printers are given below:

* Dust or debris
* Rotating drum problem
* Toner or fuser complaint

Dust or debris

One of the main causes for paper jams is the presence of dirt, dust, or debris in your toner cartridge. The paper coming into the cartridge would get stuck. So clean your printer regularly. Remove the dust from the printer. Also find out whether any jams occurred in the sensor hole in the upper part of the rotating drum. Do not touch the roller while cleaning. If the oil in your body gets into the roller, the printing media cannot roll over it properly and you can't get rid of the printer problem.

Rotating drum problem

If there is no direct symptom of paper jam and still you cannot do printing properly, find whether it is because of drum problem. If the paper gets into the end gear of the rotating drum and gets stuck there, you cannot access the printing function. Switch off your printer and check the plastic arms of the printer drum. If there is any paper piece jammed in any of the arms, you can't continue printing. Here also cleaning is the best method to solve the problem. While cleaning, check the arms of the rotating drum.

Toner or fuser complaint

Toner complaint may also cause paper jams. It can be solved only by replacing it. When you switch on the loop back plug in, two flash lights appear; then it indicates paper jam. The oil spillage in toner can cause this problem. If the toner cartridge is not functioning properly, the same problem would be the result. The diodes or transistors in the fuser unit of the printer may get damaged and this can lead to fuser complaints. To solve this problem, you should replace it.

How to open H.P laserjet 1020 for cleaning the powder dust in printer


The only part of the printer that you ned to get at is under the toner cartridge. Open door, remove toner cartridge and vacuum dust. If you are referring to black toner dust on the fuser roller ( where paper comes out of printer ) that is alot harder job.

Toner problems with Konica Minolta 2450


very annoying message i agree - most likely caused by toner dust.

The printer uses a carousel to rotate the toner cartridges. Dust and toner can easily spill as the cartridges rotate. The error can appear at any time but seems to be most annoying after a paper jam or other error. It is also important to make sure that the cartridges themselves are clear of toner dust. Pay particulair attention to any copper contacts on the cartridge.

I have replace the yellow colour and ever since the printer comes up with a error saying no toner


this is a very annoying error message

Konica Minolta Magicolor 2400/2500 series printer "X cartridge not installed" One of the most frustrating features of the Magicolor 2400/2500 series of printers is the very annoying X Cartridge not installed message
This error message can occur at any time with both original cartridges and or refilled cartridges. It is caused by either toner / paper dust covering either the chip on the toner cartridge or dust covering the chip sensor inside the printer. It can also be caused by a faulty chip reader inside the printer.

My Dell 3100cn prints dark on one side of the paper. The "roller" that the ink "dust" sits on is only collecting "dust" on one side. Can you tell me how to fix this?


take the toner out and shake it. even distribution is require for the print to come out even. if that doesn't work then it is time to get a new toner.
clen the roller and the heating element. make sure the heater element is cool.
