Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Toner quality is still light after installing new toner cartridge

Printer is a Samsung ML-2150 monochrome laser printer. I tried 2 other new cartridges, rec'd same results. the original old toner cartridge even prints better than the new ones, but it is still light and needs to be replaced. I suspect some maintenance needs to be done to the printer, but I am not printer certified. what can I check or do to solve this problem?

    I first thought it was a toner cart problem too. I had 2 new toner carts, the print was light. I had them returned. I got another new one, same result. these toner carts are from Samsung itself, and they are not refurbs. so I still suspect the printer. the printer tech service that we use will not work on it, because it is not an HP, they only service HPs. there does seem to be an accumulation of toner in the toner cart area of the printer. I could try to vacuum it out myself, but I have a feeling the printer needs some maintenance. I just dont know what to try, since I am on my own, I cannot get a printer tech to look at it.

No, if the old one prints better than the new ones, it is a toner cartridge problem. Are they remanufactured /compatibles? I suspect it is a problem from the supplier

How can i do 0 for ml-1640 page count ,and want to resetpagecount


You have to flash the printer with the fixed firmware and it will never ask you again for a new toner cartridge :) it is a 1 minute job for me and i charge my Local customers 10 Euro mostly because it has to be done just once and then you just refill the cartridge without doing anything else ( this is just an explanation - i don't want your money)

Print distorted and solid toner column with Samsung ML 1450



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Black streaks usually mean that toner is baked on. Pull out the old cartridge, if it has a lot of toner, vacuumn it out (unplugged of course), and then replace it with a new cartridge.

Samsung printer ML 2510 series


Maybe the toner is low... According to the manual, a blinking red light:

• A minor error is occurring and
the printer is waiting for the error
to be cleared. When the problem
is cleared, the printer resumes
printing.
• The toner cartridge is low. Order
a new toner cartridge. You can
temporarily improve print quality
by redistributing the toner. See
page 8.3.
• The toner is totally exhausted.
Remove the old toner cartridge
and install a new one. See page
8.4.
• The toner cartridge reached the
end of its life.

Samsung ML-2152W


The problem is that the cartridge you re using was reloaded with toner, but the remanufacturing process did not include replacing the chip. The ML2150 and the 2151N do not read the toner's chip on boot, but the 2152W does. So you either have to get a cartridge that has a new chip or get a new, genuine, Samsung cartridge.
