SOURCE: The printer is printing blank pages.

STEP 1: Disconnect and Reconnect the Printer Power Supply
1. Unplug the power cord from the wall socket.
2. Disconnect the power supply from the back of the printer.
3. Wait 15 seconds.
4. Reconnect the power supply to the back of the printer.
5. Plug the power cord back into the wall socket.

STEP 2: Run a nozzle clean on the Dell A940 inkjet printer.

To run a nozzle clean, perform the following steps:

1. Click the Start button, point to All Programs, point to Dell Printers, point to Dell AIO Printer A940, and then click Dell Printer Solution Center.
The Dell Printer Solution Center menu appears.
2. Click the Maintenance button.
The Maintenance window appears.
3. Click the Clean to fix horizontal streaks button.
4. Click the Print button.
The Nozzle Clean function prints a page.
5. Check the Nozzle Clean Printout to verify that it is free of defects and that all expected color bars exist on the page

STEP 3: Restore the printer settings to factory default

To restore the printer settings to factory default, perform the following steps:

1. Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
2. Click Printers and Other Hardware.
3. Click Printers and Faxes.
4. Right-click the Dell Printer icon, and then left-click Properties.
5. Click Printing Preferences.
6. Click to select Save Settings.
7. Under Restore, click Factory Settings (Defaults).

STEP 4: Clean the Contacts and Wick the Ink Cartridge

Wicking the cartridges and cleaning the contacts on the back of the cartridge should be performed if the nozzle clean was performed and the quality was not satisfactory.

Wicking the Cartridge

1. Ensure the printer is powered on.
2. Lift the scanner unit.
3. Open the cartridge latches and remove the cartridges from the carrier.
4. Take a clean, damp cloth and wipe the nozzle of the print cartridge from front to back

Note: Never wipe the cartridges from side to side, as this causes cross-contamination in color cartridges.

Cleaning the Contacts

1. Turn the cartridge so that you are looking at the contacts on the back side of the cartridge
2. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the contacts so that no dust or other contaminants are visible.

Note: Do not use the same cloth that was used to clean the cartridge nozzles. This may cause more contamination on the cartridge.

3. Clean the contact inside the printer with the dry cloth used to clean the cartridge contacts.
4. Replace the cartridges in the carrier and close the scanner unit.
5. Print the document again.
6. If the print quality does not improve, repeat the steps for cleaning the nozzles and contacts up to two more times as needed.


Then run again STEP 2. If the printer still prints in blank pages, contact Dell Technical Support. They may need to replace the Ink Cartridges.

SOURCE: toner mess on one side of paper dell 1720 printer

The transfer roller may have toner on it that is making that mess. Remove the toner and drum, look inside the printer, there is a grey roller towards the back of the printer. Is there toner on the right hand side that corresponds to the print out? If there is, cleaning it may only make it worse. Replacing it would be the best solution. You would want to make sure that the drum is clean after replacing the roller, if it is not ,then it will transfer to this roller once again.

My Brother HL 4040cn printer is leaking toner, black and yellow. It leaves spatter spots of these colors on printed pages. The machine does not have any messages. Do you know what this may be from or how...


If you've taken the printer apart and cleaned the belt unit and everywhere else in the paper's path, then it is probably either a bad toner cartridge or the drum. Since it's multiple colors producing splatter, its most likely the drum unit. Try taking the drum out and removing all of the toner cartridges and then clean the drums and corona wires. If its still producing splatter afterward, you've got yourself a bad drum.

I need to change the toner of my printer HL-2140 model.how can i do it?


Turn on printer,open cover by pulling the handle (the one with a depression)towards you and pull down,you can see the ink drum of the printer,grip the drum assembly out.Get a big page of newspaper and lay the toner drum on to prevent the ink of making a mess. Then you'll notice a green lever on the drum,press it down to release the toner cartridge(carefull handling must be observed).Put the cartridge in plastic bag for proper disposal.And with a new toner installed in the drum do the reverse of the procedure.

Getting ink splatters on copies


That is normal with this printer. I own a Cartridge World ink and toner refilling store and we've found that the new Brother color laser machines (that take the TN-110 or TN-115) drop toner speckles onto the pages. This is because the cartridges were designed poorly. We do not recommend new Brother color laser machines for this reason.

A stick on label was caught on one of the rollers. I removed it but now there are 5 red dots in a line down the page and finely splattered over the page.


I'm not totally familiar with this printer, but if it's like most laser printers it has all in one toner cartridges with the drum built in. Most likely you will have to replace the whole cartridge if the label got on the drum. You can try using a little bit of rubbing alcohol and cleaning the drum, but that can permanently damage it.

Gray background


Hi,

if you have a laser printer you may need to clean the printer or install a new drum cartridge, if it is ink-jet you will have to clean the bottom of the ink cradle it sound like you getting grey background from a toner/drum cartridge.

good Luck

Let em know if this helps.
