BROTHER HL 4040CN COLOR ISSUES

I have DL the firmware and calibrated. My grey blue is printing purple and I dont know how to fix this. I just bought this machine 3 days ago so I am an amateur this is my first laser printer. It said that it wont print exactly the same color as on my screen but the inkjet does. I have looked back through the book and installation and I cant see where I may have made a mistake installing anything. Anyone else have this problem and if so is there a fix?

Thank you

SOURCE: Brother HL-4040CN successfully installed but shows offline

I assume it's turned on and connected to the router.
Sometimes with DHCP, the IP address on the printer will change. I end up going into the router table to see what IP addresses are assigned where. Invariably I'll find my network printer has changed. Find the printer and write it down.

In Windows, Go into Printers> choose the Brother and right click to check Properties. Look for Ports and change the IP address as needed. It will come back online.

HL 4040CN is printing with a pink tint, it also says drum end soon and has said that for a while. What sould I do?


I have a similar problem now: magenta stain over the entire page when printing anything with any color (even just a hyperlink); B&W text is no problem.Not the PC; even the Demo Page from the 4040 menu does this. Updated the 4040 firmware tonight to latest (1.24, etc), but no better.Recently replaced the Magenta cartridge (official Brother cartridge), though saw this problem near end-of-life of the previous Magenta cartridge. Drum Unit status is 42%, so not expected to be near end-of-life.

Is there a setting on the Brother HL-4040CN for black print only?


When you try printing any file or document, a printing properties option appears.
In this option, you have choice to print only with black colour.

The colours on our HL-4040CN have gone all strange - when we perform colour calibration the colours go either red or green. All toners are new and the drum has been replaced recently as well. We do a lot...


Hi

We need to isolated the problem on what cause ink cartridge not print in color. When even you installed new cartridges, It is necessary to run the print nozzle to clean the print head. Also, please try to clean the print head manually by removing all the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a white paper with alcohol until ink flows and then return it back and run the print nozzle for 2 times.

Then try to print again.

If it does not help you, please let me know to give you more help.

Can someone please help me i have just printed off 400 prints with my brother hl 4040CN laser printerits brand new and its now saying my cyan toner has ran out this is impossible i am right in the middle...


Your toner usage will depend upon how much of each color toner is used on each page. (To conserve colors when printing in Black and White only, specify monochrome in your printer setup) <div>I had similar problems when printing publicity flyers. The toner cartridges claim to be good for about 2000 prints each, but I was lucky to get 3 or 400 pages when printing blocks of color. The TN115 cartridges hold significantly more toner, and the cartridges that come with the printer are TINY.</div>

When printing i am getting red blotches Brother hl-4040cn


I had this same problem when printing photos. Go into printing preferences, then the Advanced tab up top.....make sure "Color Mode" has NONE selected. That lets the program you are using do the color management.

Hope that helps!!

All new toner but prints everything blue


I kinda don't doubt it at all. It could be a bad lot of toner, or another problem with a mechanism within it...regardless, you're cartridge is defective -return it.

Color spots on left margin when printing with my HL-4070CDW


Replace the cartridge if that dont do it its the write head fouled up with ink or just plain died all togeather, dried ink can cause this to happen check and see if you can clean it out with 70 percent isp. alcohal if the issue still does not resolve its new printer time.
