Question about Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer

1 Answer

Brother HL2070N printed 1 page fine,then nothing but light streak

I have a Brother HL 2070N, that has worked fine for over a year. Then just the other day it printed 1 page clear, then the next page, and all other pages come out with only light streaks.

There are no trouble lights flashing. There have been no paper jams, and the toner cartrige was recently replaced with a refurbished cartridge. This is only the second cartridge.

Turn off printer, remove cartridge and drum and clean internally.
reinstall drum and cartridge and do a test print, hopefully all will be better.

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.

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

This sounds like a laser or high voltage problem. Very much technical to fix.

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.
