How to clean corona wire on brother 7840W


Corona wires are in the drum cartridge, small screen or grid over them. usually there is a colored slide that you can move back and forth to clean coronas.

Printer keeps saying to clean the corona wire. I cleaned it several times but the message keeps popping up.


To clean the corona wire in the brother laser printer, it said to remove the drum/toner assembly from the printer. This is very easy to do, you simply pull down the front of the printer, and press a small green tab down and pull. Then the toner and drum assembly will quickly come out.
After that, it says you must clean the corona wire by moving a small green square back and forth several times. It seemed kind of strange to me, but I did it anyways. In the upper right corner of the drum/toner assembly, there is a small green/blue square that can be moved back and forth. I did this several times.
I then placed the unit inside, and the error message went away for a minute. However it still wouldn't print and the error message came right back up. I was a bit frustrated since I have only owned this printer for about 2-3 months.
But then I realized something: The toner button had been blinking for about a month. I had already purchased a high yield black toner cartridge for the brother laser printer (Tn-330/TN360). I purchased it online, and had it stored for when I eventually ran out of toner.
I thought perhaps the error message had something to do with the old toner. Maybe it was out?? So I once again opened the front of the laser printer, and removed the toner/drum assembly. I pressed a green tab, removed the old toner, and then added the brand new high yield black laser toner cartridge. The whole process was very simple (you gotta love today's technology).
I then quickly "cleaned the corona wire" a few times again just to be safe. I re-installed the toner, and the printer was up and running. So apparently it will throw this error when you are out of toner. Now the printer is running great again, and I really like this printer.
If you are still using an ink jet printer, then you are living in the stone age. I was reluctant to buy a new laser printer, but now I love it. The toner only costs $30-60 and lasts for months. I print hundreds of labels out each month-just to give you an idea of how long it lasts.or get more information Call +877 889 6859 for detail.

Brother printers are SCAM. I bought one, it was full of errors, japanese "quality"! Then I fought an uphill battle to get a replacement! They sent me one.l It has errors! It works for a while,...


The Corona wire is inside the drum unit, a small slide is there to allow you to move it back and forth. return it to it's home position when done.

Also, remove the toner and power on the machine. After a couple minutes, replace the toner and drum. This sometimes will clear up these "drum issues" Brother is famous for.

I have a brother 2140 printer, it ran out of toner and i refilled toner starter cartridge , and error message comes back to clean the corona , i replaced ther cartridge with a new tn-360 cartridge, but...


When it says to clean the corona, on the drum there is a purple tab that moves from one side to the other. run it back and forth a couple times that should solve the problem.

I dont recommend refilling the cartridges, we have had several issues in repairing those printers with refill. if you must use refills, i would recommend getting 2nd or 3rd party manufacturers.

if you need help, you can contact us.
thanks adi

Get a clean the corona wire. Have removed the


Try using canned air to blow out that corona area, and then a Q-tip moist with alcohol to gently wipe the corona wire, if all that fails you will need a new drum.
Also press the go button 3 times so you get a printout and check that you are getting a clean the drum error or something else.

Copying problem


Vertical lines on the copy usually indicate a dirty drum or Corona wire. The Corona wire should be cleaned each time you replace the toner cartridge. This is done by moving the Corona tab back and forth across the wire several times to clear it of debris. You may also want to check the drum for debris. Holding the copied page to where it feeds out and lining up the line or mark on the page will give you an idea as to where the dirt may be. Best of luck with your printing issue.

Printer won't print error message corona wire needs cleaning


When you experience a persistent problem like this right at the beginning - listen to your own good advice. Take it back to the store and exchange it for a new one.

Same problem even with new Brother drum


Did you replace the drum or the toner cart? The drum has a blue lever that you slide back and forth around 20 times to clean the corona wire. I sometimes use a cotton swab with alcohol to gently clean this wire as well.

CORONA WIRE CLEANING


SWARNAVA has the most common wrong answer to this problem...

I am waiting for a firmware update to fix this issue. The only solution is repeatedly removing the drum/toner, moving the green cleaner back and forth, putting it all back together loosely, putting it in the printer loosely, and closing the door gently. Hold down the blue button until all the lights glow, then release. If you're lucky you only have to repeat this process a dozen times until you trick the sensor into not giving false readings.

Pls Clean Drum


The drum is the larger plastic unit that slides out an the toner cartridge fits into it. The corona wire is the very fine wire at the front top of the drum. Just slide the little cleaning tab back and forth.
