Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Black horizontal lines in printout

Hi, I have a Brother HL-1440 printer. Lately, it's been printing with black horizontal (but not quite solid) lines, about 2mm thick. They appear once about every 3.5 inches down the page.

Thanks for your help.

Seems like the drum needs changing. This is the most common cause for print problems in these printers. If using the high yield TN 6600 toner then you need to change the drum every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN 6300 toner then the drum will need replacing every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

Brother HL-1250 owner's manual


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.

Not printing black


Black printer ink in brother Printer may fail to be recognized by the printer. Most times an error message will be sent indicating that something is wrong with the black print cartridge. Sometimes the printer may accept to print with the black ink, but the printouts may have horizontal lines and very illegible letters. In such a case a manual cleaning of the print head should be carried out. In doing the manual cleaning, one should spray Windex heavily on paper towel and wipe off the surface of the print head.

Did you mean 'vertical' (from top to bottom) line rather than horizontal? If it goes 'straight down,' it has to be. I think so, otherwise the added info that it is closer to the right wouldn't make sense.
This problem is normally due to contaminents on the surface of the drum itself although can also occur if a wire that discharges the excess toner from blank areas could be dirty.
Changing the drum cartridge will correct either of those problems since they are contained in the drum cartridge. If you are using 'recharged' cartridges and it only has a few copies on it, most companies will exchange it for you.
