I have a HL 2070 Brother printer That that toner light will no go off, I replace with a new toner and after that did not keep working, I tried to reset the toner opening the front door, also holding the go...

Hi there!
You can remove the drum and toner, remove toner from the drum unit then gently rock the toner from side to side for about six times to distribute the toner inside, then on the drum unit slide the green tab on the upper left hand from left to rigth for about six times and then put it back to the home position. Reinstall the toner back to the drum unit and then put the drum and toner back to the printer. closed the front cover. the toner light should turn off,
Hope this helps.

How to remove the cartridge on Brother HP1440 printer

Hi seevram,

Follow the procedure below to remove and replace toner cartridges for your Brother HP1440 printer:

1. First, open the Front Cover of the printer.

2. Remove the Toner Cartridge(s) that has run out of toner. Pull the Toner Cartridge out slightly with one hand, then hold the Toner Cartridge with both hands and pull it out of the printer.

After rocking each new Toner Cartridge 3 to 4 times from side to side, remove the tape labeled 'REMOVE' and the orange protective cover from the new Toner Cartridge.

4. Then,
insert the new Toner Cartridge(s) by positioning it in the correct guide(s). Slide it gently into the printer.
  • Do not try to lock or push it in; it should rest loosely in the guide rails.
  • Each color cartridge is individually keyed to prevent improper installation. Match each cartridge color label to the corresponding label on the printer.
5. Finally, close the Front Cover.

Also, I have included here a link where you can download a service manual for your Brother HP1440. Kindly click here.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print

First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

Repeated paper jams from the brother hl2070n after remove toner

  1. Remove left cover (where the USB connection is located);
  2. Remove big black gear with a spring on it (you may need to unscrew the PCB that partially covers it);
  3. There is a clutch that sticks to the rubber pad behind this gear. You may put a piece of scotch tape towards to a rubber pad, so the plastic from clutch mechanism would'n stick anymore.

HL 2070 Printer Toner light will not go off

Ok, I’m going to try and explain this without pictures:

Take out the toner and look at it. One end has 2 silver screws in it. As you are looking at the toner from the front (transfer roller pointing at you) the screws are to the right. Remove these screws and so remove the face-plate. There is a white gear-wheel (without cogs/teeth) that looks a little like a Y. This simply lifts off; behind it is also a metal spring. Remove this gear and the spring. Now replace the face-plate and the 2 screws without the gear and the spring. That’s it. Put the toner back in and print until no longer possible as the light will not show when it really is empty.

Hope this helps.
