My Brother HL 4070 cdw has a red lcd screen that reads Unusable device. Remove device and then turn power off and back on again. I'm not sure what they mean by remove device. I've tried turning on and off again several times. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    THE PROBLEM IS NOT WITH THE PRINTER BUT THE SOURCE YOU ARE TRYING TO PRINT FROM, CHECK TO MAKE SURE SOFTWARE IS NOT CORRUPTED.

I think you have to check your toner cartridges. Check if there are jammed tiny papers on it. Also check if still filled with toner powder.

Hope this helps

I have a Brother HL 4070 CDW. I have replace the Magenta cartridge but it seems to be spilling ink. When I print in color, the images are not good.


Make sure that the toner cartridges are installed properly.Make sure that the drum unit is installed properly.Make sure that the belt unit is installed properly. Perform the calibration. Adjust the colour by using the custom setting in the driver and by using the control panel. Colours the printer can print and colours you see on a monitor are different. The printer may not be able to reproduce the colours on your monitor. Make sure that you use paper that meets the printer's specifications. Put in a new drum unit.Put in a new belt unit. Check the printer's environment. Conditions such as high humidity and high temperatures may cause this print quality problem.Identify the colour causing the problem and put in a new toner cartridge. If the problem continues, put in a new drum unit. Also visit >>

"Service Call Error E54"


This error code indicates a fault with the Main Motor. Either it's jammed or unusable. Unplug the printer from the power source, leave it for around 30 minutes, . While it's turned off, remove the cartridges, check for any damage, then put them back in. After tha, then reconnect it to the power and turn it on again. If this still doesn't clear the code from the display then you'll need to see a Brother service agent to have the main motor replaced.

Brother HL-4070 printing out black whole page. Is this drum problem?


Try swapping the black and the magenta (red) cartridge.
This will not damage the printer and you can see if the toner or the drum is defective.

If you get a red page, drum
Black page, toner cartridge

What is a waste toner box. what does it do and


like the name suggest, it collects waste toner. Any toner that is left over from the print process is waste toner. Once the waste toner bottle is full, the printer will stop working until You have replaced it with an empty waste toner bottle. So in short, if it is telling u to get a new one, get one or the other option is to empty it yourself which is very messy and if u dont clean the bottle of all toner dust, may not even work.

Will not make connection to wireless brother hl 4070 cdw printer


You might not be on the wireless network or the printer might not be on the wireless netowrk. try connecting to it via a usb cable and see if that works. if so try reconfiguring the settings on it for your wireless network than try again. Also if you have the disk the printer came with you can uninstall the printer put back in the disk, reinstall the printer and it might do all that I am saying automatically.

Brother 4070 CDW Drum Unit Error


The green tabs that you have to slide are under the color cartridges, so remove the three color cartridges and you will see three green tabs, to slide the tab across the wire you have to first open the translucent plastic wire cover, then slide the green tab across the wires and return it to it's original position, close the wire covers, replace the color cartridges, and reassemble the printer. All the Best
