Question about Brother MFC 7420 All-In-One Laser Printer
Was having "No Toner" error, I got rid of it, and the printer is now powered on, shows no errors, and is accessible over my network. The scanner works fine.
The problem now is any time I try to print anything, only the top right hand side of the pages get any toner to stick, and BARELY any toner at that. Just enough for me to squint really hard and see that it's printing what it's supposed to be printing. It does this no matter where the document comes from: different scanning software, windows test page, built-in copier.
We purchased a replacement toner cartridge, and I'm pretty sure that even the one that was inside of it was full because I imagine my mom's boss tried putting a new toner cartridge in there first -- not sure they're both full though. Both of the cartridges give the same result: barely any toner sticks to the top right of the page.
Anyone know where my malfunction might be? If i could just get some pointers as to what component sounds like the culprit, I'm sure i could manage to fix or replace it myself.
Also, I'm very curious as to what this little white tab is on the side of the toner cartridge. It's located right next to the blue release tab. On one of my toner cartridges, this tab is all the way back (towards the blue releaee tab) and on the other it's in the opposite position, all the way to the other side. They're both stuck like that pretty firmly. I can't figure out for the life of me what they are, other than perhaps something to let the machine know what's going on in the toner reservoir. If that's true, logic would dictate that one is empty and one is full? I can't find info/specs for this cartridge anywhere on the net.
Cartridge Model: Brother TN-350
You will need to replace the toner cart. there is not enough toner to spread evenly on the mag roller .
