Brother HL-4040CDN data viewer

Won't print. The Data screen/viewer got broken when moving the unit and I cannot read what the problem is. Sounds like it's working. Little wheels going round. No paper comes out. I took the cartridges out and shook them and put them back in. Still no paper coming out

SOURCE: Brother HL-5250DN printer paper light won't go off

I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  2. Hint
  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).
Here's the link from HP, on how to open the Fuser Cover.

SOURCE: Brother HL-4040CN won't read or show new refilled cartridge in the LCD

I think I know what the problem is...
When you refill these toner cartridges you need to reset the "toner empty" cog wheel.
For instructions on how to do this follw this link:
http://www.proprint.co.uk/brother_hl4040.htm
It has pictures and explains how to reset the cartridge
Good luck,
Billy.

SOURCE: Brother HL-2040 toner led stays on, won't print

There is a window on each end of the toner cartridge that you can cover with electrical tape and keep printing, it shines a light thru and when the toner is too low it says it's empty. The weight can be misleading.

Brother HL-4040CDN printer colors are off, tend to be pink


There could be a number of causes for the problems your describing, but one of the most common causes of discoloration and issues with toner is a faulty ribbon sensor. A broken sensor will be unable to accurately read the ribbon and apply the correct color. I hope this helps

I have a 4040CDN brother printer that does not want to work - tells me to turn it off and on. But nothing works after that


Is it giving you any error messages either on the small LCD screen or on your pc/laptop screen? Can you print any of the system files from the printer menu directly just to test whether it will print anything at all before trying to print from your pc/laptop? When was the last time you changed your toners or drum unit? Sorry, more questions than answers at the moment.

I have an HL-4040CDN Brother printer that prints too red. We just purchased it and need how to fix this problem. It also prints colored text too light.


Many people are having problems with this machine. If you are dissatisfied with the quality I would return it and try something else. Your most economical solution is going to be a factory refurbished (with warranty) HP color laserjet. Staples usually has some good deals.

It won't print - says manual feed - load paper tray. Its a brand new printer (Brother HL-4040CDN) and the paper tray is full


The printer has an "alternate" feed, i.e., for envelopes and/or for special paper.

Open the door to access that "manual" tray, take some paper from the "normal" tray, and insert the paper into the "manual" tray.

Or, on the printer's controls, set the "standard" feed, rather than the "manual" feed, and press PRINT.
