Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
No guarantee this will work but I refilled toner on my Brother 5170 and it only worked after making sure the old stuff was completely out. After removing the little plastic plug, I tapped out the toner repeatedly on the side of a trash can (like 50 times) then took a shop vac and let that **** out whatever toner was left. It really seems to be important for some reason to rid the cartridge of ALL old toner before adding the new stuff. Hope this helps!
