Question about Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer

Open Question

Brother HL-2070N prints very light even with new Toner cartridge.

I've been having a lot of problems with faint printouts lately.  I replaced the toner cartridge and drum assembly but that doesn't seem to have fixed the problem.  In addition, my printer makes intermittent squeaking noises when printing and last time I tried to investigate them I could not open the toner access door all the way.  On closer inspection there appears to be a sliding arm on the left side that will not extend all the way out to allow me to open the door.  Any ideas on this?

    My printer seems to have the same problem: doors open with difficulty and it prints very pale unreadable copies. The printer is fairly new, so I don't think I need a new drum. New cartridge makes no difference. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have a Brother MFC 7420 but have the same issue. It looks to be a broken plastic piece which rotates the toner. Not sure if brother has parts to change. Not a good situation.

did you remember to remove the seal on the toner cart? this is a breakaway tab usually on the side, this when pulled removes the plastic seal,(from inside the cartridge)

SOURCE: HL-2070N will not properly print

My guess is the problem is with Firefox trying to print the page and not the printer. Try to go to File > Print Preview and see if it looks normal there. If not, I have 3 suggestions:

  1. Try to change the "Page Options" or "Scale" under the Print Preview
  2. Try to install and use the Firefox Add-On "IE Tab". This gives you the choice to display the page with Internet Explorer, while still using Firefox. You can turn on IE Tab, and then try to print. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419
  3. Upgrade to Firefox 3.

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.

When I print with my brother hl-2070n...the print out is very very faint. i have changed the toner and drum...any suggestions?


if you printing is just faint, need to replace toner, but if your printing is faint and blurry, need to add grease to the fuser film roller, need advanced skills for that, disassemble the fuser unit take out the fuser film and put some special high temp grease on the heating element, assembly all back and install, the other way is replacing the fuser unit

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

Toner light stays on


Have you removed the tape?
Try OEM toner from the manufacturer.
Good Luck.

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.
