When page prints out it has blotches of black ink on the paper


It is probably the toner cartridge, not the drum. I suggest swapping in old toner cartridges and drums to nail down the problem. I keep at least one old toner and one old drum for that purpose. By the way I just bought a toner cart from monoprice.com. It will not last as long as a Brother cart, but costs very little.

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer


How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360)
* Paper towel or scrap paper



Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.

Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.



Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.


Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.


Hope it helps...

Drum light is blinking and not sure how to change it or fix it in Brother HL-5250DN


Hit the purple/blue button on the top of the printer 3 times. This will print a settings report of the printer showing you the toner levels and the drum life.
If you need a new drum purchase one. (I would suggest a new printer at this time but if you like it continue on)
Open the front of the printer and pull out the toner and the drum cartridge. The drum is on the bottom of the toner. Disconnect the drum from the toner and connect the new drum. Replace the toner/drum and you are good to go.

Fuser Problem?? The ink does not cover the left side of the page


Pull out the toner/drum and on the backside there is a blueish/purple tab, it slides from side to side along a corona wire. Move the tab back and forth several times and then put the toner/drum back in and reprint.
Below are the instructions on how to accomplish this task.

Black stripes down paper


You remove the drum/toner cartridge and run the blue tab on top back and forth several times then blow out the slot with canned air, while it's out you reach inside with a soft cloth and wipe the narrow window above where the drum sits, open the back door and shine a light inside to see if the lines are on the fuser roller, if there you will need a new fuser.

Drum and error light are on - got new cartridge - installed as directed - blue light will not stay on - printer will not print - red and orange lights will not go out


I can't recall the buttons on Brother laser printers but leaving the cartridge door open and pressing and holding down one of the buttons for about 5 seconds will clear the drum light error.

I've done this to clear the same error on aBrother HL5250DN laser printer.

If this doesn't work please post your printer's model number.

Can smears when priting be fixed


Have you tried cleaning the corona wire on the drum unit (the blue slider bit)?

Replace the drum unit (assuming you have already replaced the toner cart?)

To check the remaining drum life press the go button 3 times. A report should print out with the info on. Even though you may have some remaining life, the drum can fail early.

If the dots/marks are repeating about 3 times down the page it is almost certainly the drum unit that has the problem.

Smudges along the right side of the paper


Hi Scottmortona,

Welcome to FixYa!

I encountered this while printing my lecture notes for my students. This seems either a drum issue or the toner.

  1. Take out the toner.
  2. Ensure that the toner is evenly spread out by holding it horizontally, and tilt forward and backward.
  3. We need to ensure the toner is even.
  4. Take out the drum unit.
  5. Check are there any toner powder stuck on the sides of the drum?
  6. If so, use a soft brush and slowly brush off the toner stuck there.
  7. At the top of the drum, there is a blue notch. Slide this a few times to do a wire cleaning.
  8. Place the toner into the drum
  9. Place drum into printer now.
  10. Try printing a few pages.
Let us know if you have any problems.

Thank you for rating us.

Brother HL 2040 out of paper light stays on


Sounds like it sensed this as a paper jam. If it is your Paper LED that is stuck on:

We have a few of the HL-2070N's and I have seen this issue on a few of them. Usually it indicates one of several instances that can be found on Brothers website in the FAQ's about what does the LED indicate area.

The main solution I have found is that depending on where the paper jammed it has affected the drum/toner cartridge assembly somehow or another.
  • I recommend taking the Toner Cartridge out of the drum unit
  • clean the corona wire by moving the blue tab at the front of the drum unit back and forth several times
  • I have even used can air here to get it even better all around the drum unit not just at the corona wire area
  • After make sure all is clean put all back together
This has cleared up most all of my paper jam LED issues and allowed for further printing.
