If your cartridge has a lever on the left side near the rear, it needs to be reset, and there's a lever inside on the left that can stick and cause that error. You need to wiggle and pull that lever until it moves freely again.

SOURCE: how to check the toner level of Brother printer

It has no accurate measure of the toner left, it is reset when you put in a fresh toner and just counts prints. The Brother shines a light thru a little window from right to left and when the toner is empty the light shines thru and it says it's empty.

Two likely possibilities:

1. The drum is scratched by particles caught under the drum cleaning blade. Every copier or printer that has a drum leaves a little bit of toner on the drum that didn't get transferred to the paper. A soft plastic blade scrapes off that excess. If a chunk of fused toner or something gets caught under it, it can scrape a groove around the drum, resulting in a black line. Take a close look at the drum for scratches matching the lines you get. The cure is a new drum unit.

2. The fuser roller is scratched. Open up the back of the printer. The fuser is the assembly with labels warning about how hot it is. The final stage of the print process is to press the page between those two hot rollers, melting the toner into the paper. The hot roller is coated with Teflon to prevent pulling toner off the page and laying it back down where it doesn't belong, but like the drum, it can be scratched. You might be able to look for scratches on the hot roller with the help of a strong flashlight and magnifier. If it's scratched, you need a new hot roller or a complete new fuser.

Let us know what you find.

SOURCE: Brother Toner Refills

Yeah you can refill your cartridge. It is really easy and consists of removing the plug on the side of the cartridge, dumping out any old toner and dumping in the new toner. Its very easy. I have purchased refill kits from both of these sites in the past and its worked great:

They also have great customer service. I hope this helps!

Brother dcp 7040 prints and then prints too light

Before refilling, clean entire cartridge units. Remote its cleaning blade and clean it with an IP solutions and make sure no bends in cleaning blade. Do not mix new toner powder with old one. Also clean plastic portion below the developer roller also. Then the same complaint found, clean the LSU unit of the machine. Now it work properly.

Brother DCP-7040 Laser Printer Issue

With the computer off will the printer still make a copy? If the printer can still make a copy stand alone, then try deleteing the printer and reinstalling the printer driver.

Brother dcp 7040 prints grey film over the page

someone cheaped out and got the el cheapo paper.
The low quality paper has paper dust on every page....
when the printer feeds this cheap paper thru the machine it drops the dust onto the tonor cartridge rollers and causes the roller to accumulate toner on the roller... this in turn is transfered to the pages being printed.
check your machines operation manual. There may be a clean cycle you can try to run to clean the rollers...
I had to buy a new toner cartridge for mine when this happened.

Just load it into the cd drive in your PC and follow the instructions. You should have no trouble in setting it up. If you didnt get the cd or youve lost it, just download it from the internet.

My Brother DCP 7040 printer can only print 1 copy... even if input request to print multiple copies of something

I've had the same problem with my Brother MFC-9440CN and XP Pro.
Try changing Printer properties (Control Panel\Printers) and click Advanced\Printer Processor button. Here you can try to change Printer processor: WinPrint, ModiPrint, hpzpplhn, LMPRTPRC.

I solved my problem choosing hpzpplhn (RAW).You can also try to deactivate 'Enable advanced printing features' in the printer, advanced, properties...
