I been having the same problem recently & tried every available method...The i read this on another website and thought I must share with everyone...Simply paste a little piece of Post-it and cover up the hole at the left side of the toner..And so far I restarted the printer 3 times and the toner light is not on any more!!!

    You rock! Have been dealing with this problem for a while. Brother tech support just said purchase more toner - no fading in printouts so toner appears to be present but toner light doing that face-plant. I asked Bro support if they knew where the sensor was and could I check / defeat that. This was above their idea of technical help. Put that piece of post-it over the hole and I am saved!

How do i add toner to my hl 2030 brother printer ?


Hello,

You don't "add" toner, you have to replace the cartridge. You can see it by clicking on this link:

HL-2030 Toner

You can refer to the User Guide for instructions. here is a link to it:

HL-2000 Series User Guide

Replacing the toner is covered in Chapter 5.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Brother HL-2030 continually prints test pages


disconnect the printer from your pc and clear out all print jobs... leave it on and let it sit for a day... if no test page prints then the problem is your pc... if it starts printing like crazy then reset it via page 54 of the user guide if it still prints like crazy with the network cable or usb cable disconnected then you need to call brothers tech support but more than likely it shouldn't do anything... if this is the case... the problem is your pc... or your server...

I have changed the toner in my printer and the toner light continues to stay on/won't print. I tried changing the drum and still the toner light stays on/won't print. I tried opening the toner door and...


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!

Brother hl-2030


Hi from what i have read on the internet and past experience with these printers (our company has 20 -30 of them) the fault is within the printer and requires a service call from brother.

if its still under warrenty i would suggest taking it back for a replacement if that is not possible but its still under warranty ring up brother in your country and get them to send out an engineer. we have just had another one of our printers start doing this after some routine maintance (we simply used compressed air cans to clean out any "rubbish where the toner / drum assembly goes) after that the printer is now flashing all 4 lights.

sorry i cannot be more positive about the problem but as mentioned its a fault within the printer that requires an engineer.
