There are two contact on the right wall off the printer cartridge chamber area. They can get pushed in causing the printer cartridge to not read correctly. Take a small Flathead screwdriver and bend them up so the cartridge ink level can be read.
There's contacts on the toner cartrdige make sure the contacts on the cartridge are cleaned, then t what I would do is look where those contacts ling up make sure the springs that touch the toner contacts are making good contact, If not call a tech so he can adjust those springs to make better contact.

You may be beginning to run low on toner. Many toner manufacturers have users gently shake or tilt the toner cartridge back and forth prior to installing. This is to help break up any settling of toner between the time of manufacturing and installation. If that step was skipped, toner may not have been evenly distributed within the cartridge itself. Replacing the cartridge (or possibly removing this one and shaking gently and then reinstalling for a little more life) should solve the problem - unless there is another issue. Make sure you read the installation instructions! Good luck!
The toner cartridge is inside the printer's drum unit. To change the toner, make sure that the printer is on and then open the front cover by pulling it down. Then pull the drum and toner cartridge assembly out of the printer. (Take care not to touch the electrodes on the sides of the drum.) Push down on the green lever (on the left side of the drum unit). Then you can remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit.
Open your new toner cartridge and then shake it gently and remove the protective cover. Put the new cartridge into the drum unit and push down until it clicks (the green lever should come up automatically). Slide the green tab along the corona wire back and forth several times. (Return it to the home position when done).
Then return the drum and toner assembly to the printer and close the front cover. Wait until the Ready light is lit before turning off the printer or reopening the front cover.
Your problem sounds more like a bad drum unit than a toner issue. You should try cleaning the corona wire first which you do by removing the drum/toner unit and looking for the little sliding blue tab. Move this back and forth a couple of times and then reinsert the cartridge and try printing again.
Checking the toner cartridge Image formation defects are many times the result of problems in the toner cartridge. If there is any doubt, always replace the toner cartridge before troubleshooting image defects. Use the following checklist to make sure that the toner cartridge is still operable. " Make sure that the toner cartridge is seated properly. " Inspect the toner cartridge for toner level. " Check the expiration date stamped on the toner cartridge box. " Check the toner cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled. " Inspect the toner cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals. " Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting and image defects. " Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced. NoteA toner cartridge weighs approximately 863 grams (30.5 oz) when it is full, approximately 766 grams (27.0 oz) when it first fades, and approximately 742 grams (26.2 oz) when it is empty. To redistribute toner in the cartridge Before installing a new cartridge or when toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the
width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the
bottom of the cartridge.

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.
Instructions Things You'll Need:
* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360) * Paper towel or scrap paper
Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

If you mean blank copies then you either have installed a bad cartridge or perhaps you did not pull out the toner seal tape from the new cartridge before you installed it. If not then just remove the new cartridge and check one of the 2 ends of the cartridge for a small tape sticking out. Pull that out of the cartridge which will release the toner supply to the developer roller. Then re-install.
If you did this already then test for a bad cartridge by shaking the old toner cartridge back and forth a few times and put it back into the machine. It should work well enough to at least test for blank copies.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
Does this happen when you install the old toner? Is the NEW toner an OEM or compatible? I have run into this problem before on some other Brother all in one models. There is a sensor flag located just below the toner and drum unit. Remove the toner/drum unit, check that the sensor flag will move to back and forth freely. My customer removed the toner and drum unit and threw the drum unit away, not realizing that the toner seats into the drum unit. When they placed just the toner into the printer, it read paper jam. Because the drum unit is part of the paper path, the sensor was not in the correct position. Try re-seating the toner into the drum unit and then re-seat the entire unit into the printer. Let me know if this helps.
After confirming the Insert Yellow Toner (Y)message, open the front door.
Hold the tape on the protective cover and pull it forward to remove the cover from each cartridge slot.
NOTE: You need to remove the protective cover only the first time that you install the toner.
NOTE: Dispose of the protective cover after you remove it.
NOTE: The protective cover is attached to each toner cartridge mount.
Make sure the color of the toner cartridge matches the slot on the toner cartridge carrier. The order is Y, M, C, K. Gently shake the cartridge to distribute the toner evenly.
Lift the tab up 90 degrees and pull the toner seal straight off, keeping it parallel with the toner cartridge.
To insert the toner cartridges, align the arrows on the cartridge with the corresponding arrows on the printer. Guide the cartridge in until it snaps into place and then push down the handhold to lock the cartridge in place.
Close the front door.
NOTE: Make sure the toner cartridge is installed correctly. Otherwise, the front door cannot close firmly.
The toner cartridge carrier rotates to the next empty slot. When the color of the newly inserted cartridge appears on the display, followed by the Insert message, insert the next toner cartridge.
Repeat steps 1 through 7 when inserting the remaining cartridges.
When the Insert Drum or Insert Drum Cart message appears, open the front door, then lift and push back the top cover.
Remove the protective sheet from the drum cartridge.
To insert the drum cartridge, push up the lever on the right side of the printer. With the lever in the upright position, hold the drum cartridge by the handle, align the arrows on the drum cartridge with the corresponding arrows on the printer and guide the cartridge in until it snaps into place.
Pull down the lever on the right to lock the drum cartridge in place.
Close the top cover, then the front door.
NOTE: After installing the drum cartridge, the printer makes an adjustment for about one to two minutes. Do not turn off the printer during this time.
