Try going to the manufacturer's website, or reading the instruction manual for your printer. There should be pictures and detailed explanations in there.

My fax machine says'clean the corona wire on the drum. How do I do this


When you open the door where the toner cartridge goes, there is a unit attached to the toner cartridge called the drum. When you pull them out, on the edge of the drum that goes into the machine first, there should be a small blue tab with an arrow on it either on the right or left side of the drum, and there is a small wire leading out from under it. This is the corona wire. Dislodge the blue tab and slide it back and forth along the wire, then return it to the side from which it came, the arrows should line up.

How do you change the cartridge? i am having difficulty removing it.


hi,

you open the front door and pull out the toner cartridge/drum. when you open the door there is a little handle on the left that unrestricts the cartridge from coming out. once its out, you push a button, (there may be 2) on the right side and possibly left, you push them down to separate the toner from the drum

thanks

How does one replace the toner cartridge on the hl 2040 printer


Open the front cover (it tilts down from the top). Pull out the drum and toner cartridge assembly. Place this on newspaper or something that can be disposed of later to contain any spilled toner. Do not touch the electrodes on the unit. Push down on the blue lock lever to release the toner cartridge and slide it out (push slightly down and then lift up) of the drum. Place the old toner in a bag for disposal to contain the remaining toner. Open the package for the new toner cartridge and hold it level. Gently rock the cartridge from side to side to get the toner evenly distributed. Pull off the protective cover and slide it into the drum until it locks into place (the blue lever will return to the original position). Slide the blue tab from left to right and back several times to clean the corona wire then return the tab to the home position (marked by an up arrow).

Slide the drum assembly back into the printer and close the front cover.

I hope this helps.

Toner light is on on Brother HL-2170 Laser Printer and the computer is not recognizing a print task. Can you help me fix this problem? Also, I just replaced toner a couple weeks ago.

The yield of the TN starter toner cartridge is approx. 1,000 pages.
The yield of the TN330 toner cartridge is approx. 1,500 pages.
The yield of the TN360 toner cartridge is approx. 2,600 pages.
Approximate cartridge yield is declared in accordance with ISO/IEC 19752(Letter/A4).

Brother strongly recommends that customers use only genuine Brother drum units and/or toner cartridges. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations. Each individual component is designed to work with the other to ensure quality and reliability. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability. The Brother limited warranty does not apply to any problem that is caused by the use of third party drum units, toner cartridges or toner.

1. Verify you installed a NEW, out of the box, genuine Brother toner cartridge (TN360/TN330).

If a toner cartridge from another machine was installed (even if there?s still toner left in the used cartridge) or a starter toner cartridge (included with the purchase of a machine) was installed, the Toner LED will stay on and the message "Toner Life End" would continue to appear on the display.

2. Verify the toner cartridge is installed correctly by following the steps listed below:

a. Open the front cover by pulling the tabs on the left and right side of the printer towards you.

b. Lift the drum unit slightly and pull it out. Place the drum unit on a piece of disposable paper or cloth to avoid spilling and scattering the toner.

c. Remove the toner cartridge from the drum by holding down the lock lever (blue tab) on the left side of the drum unit and lift the toner out. Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, immediately wash it off with cold water.

d. Gently rock the toner cartridge from side to side five or six times to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.

e. Place the toner cartridge into the drum (be sure it clicks into place).

f. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the blue tab on the top of the cartridge from right to left several times. Return the blue tab to the home position before reinstalling the drum unit assembly.

g. Reseat the drum unit into the printer pressing it in securely.

h. Close the front cover making sure it latches on both sides.

If the Toner LED is still on or the status monitor continues to display the message "Toner Life End" the printer will need service.

The printer has a one year limited exchange warranty. If the printer is in warranty, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) for warranty options.

If the printer is out of warranty, contact a Brother Authorized Service Center for repair by clicking on the link below:

How do I remove the toner cartridge


Front cover (above paper tray, manual feeder is in the middle) folds down away from the printer. Toner cart/drum pulls straight out. Tab on left side (purple/blue) pushes down to remove toner cart from the drum mechanism. Shake toner side-side to loosen toner before you put back into drum and then into printer.

How do I pull out the toner cartrige of a HL 2040


Front panel of printer (manual paper feed is in the middle of this panel) has tabs on the right & left and will fold out and down. The toner/drum is right inside. there's an opening in the middle to grab it and pull straight out. The toner will separate from the drum unit by holding a small purple/blue tab on the left side down, and then lift up and out. Reverse this when putting everything back. remember to shake the toner right-left to loosen the toner before putting back in the unit. To reset the printer, and with the front door still open, hold the GO-Control button down until all lights are on, then let go, close up front door. Power off & back on and you should be set.
