What model printer do you have? Try gently shaking the cartridge end to end. Maybe the toner is wicked up like sand and needs to be redistributed.

AL - 110 TD Cartridge issue


There are a few things that come in to play with the toner yield. Are you buying a OEM toner cartridge? If it is a after market, it may not be filled to spec. Also, a little known fact is that, the yield is set to only 6% coverage of a whole page (8.5X11). If you are doing coies with alot of text or a graphic image..... There goes you 6% out of the door. Also, if your optic's are dirty or drum is getting old, you may be getting a back ground on your copies and there goes your yield again... There are to many things working against you.... Sorry, I don't make them... I fix them..

The toner light of HL 2140 will not go off. even if i turn the printer on/ off and wait for a few minutes. i've also move the green thing back and forth a hundred times and still the same. Please help!


You need to look at the toner cartrage if it was a new or compatible cartrage bought to replace the old one the problem would not exist unless the printer is broken.

Thier is a counting gear on the left side and on new or replacement cartarages it is in the 11 oclock postion when it is new. When the toner is all used it moves to the 3 oclock postion. What you need to do if you refilled the toner from a refill kit is to manually move the gear.

I believe thier is two ways to do this one buy a reset gear tool.

The other way that I do is to remove the three screws carefully that holds all the gears in place. Dont worry as it is just the cover and you can not really break the cartarage unless you strip the screws.
Once opened manually using your hand push firmly on the counting gear until you move it back to the 11 oclock postion. Then carefully reassemble the cover.
Once you place the cartrage back in the light will go off on its own and the toner counter will be reset.

Do not try to only move the counter you may get a few pages but this is bad for the printer
Do not leave any toner in the cartrage when refilling as this contaminates the toner and really shortens the refill life, try to get all the toner out as possible before refill.
Do not keep reshaking the cartrage and place it back in the printer, everytime you insert the cartarage the it can snag or be inserted a tiny bit wrong and break the gears in the printer. Do so in emergencys only, the rest of the time just refill the toner. $10 with delivery on ebay

Empty Ink Cartrage message when cartrage still has a lot of ink.


I'm going to provide you a solution worth many dollars now you can use your left over half filled cartidges and in future also use the cartridges to the extreme.
1. Go to menu and select manual override for toner cartridges and then only replace toner when the print quality starts to suffer. This can save you thousands of dollars over the life of this fine printer.
2. download and read this

Brother 2140 toner light keep flashing and i just replace it with new toner


You need to look at the toner cartrage if it was a new or compatible cartrage bought to replace the old one the problem would not exist unless the printer is broken.(Or if the replacement has a missing or broken or miss postioned counting gear.)


Thier is a counting gear on the left side and on new or replacement cartarages it is in the 11 oclock postion when it is new. When the toner is all used it moves to the 3 oclock postion. What you need to do if you refilled the toner from a refill kit is to manually move the gear.

Poor quality black output


There is a defect in the Imaging Unit of these printers....if you replace the imaging unit, the problem of the faded black prints go away. If you have less than 7000 prints, you can call Samsung for a warrantied replacement. The Imaging Unit is supposed to last at least 20,000 prints.

It's probably happening because the cleaning blade on the drum needs to be changed or replaced.

Ghosting can :
1-prints on the fuser roller, check if yes try cleaning it off, wait until it cools off

2-blanking lamps dirty or not working,(deletes image off the drum, before it gets ready to accept a new one)

BL mirror-(new image)

drum

3-Bad drum (although I doubt it this far in the process.)
