Question about Brother MFC 7420 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer


Recently changed the drum and toner and added a print server to make this a network printer. Since these changes, the printer sometimes prints fine and sometimes prints blank pages. If I turn off the printer and then turn it on, it works fine on the first print attempt.

    I recently changed the toner cartridge and now it will not print.
    The pages come out blank?
    It makes a noise kind of like a grinder.
    Please help.

My printer is printing blank.

Unless drum low warnings have been ignored for a significant amount of time, this is most likely to be a toner cartridge issue.

I would recommend running off 15-30 pages in the hope that this pulls some toner through. Failing this I would recommend replacing the toner cartridge.

Printer prints blank pages

This is almost certainly an issue with the toner cartridge. I would recommend running off 30 or so prints and contacting whoever the cartridge was purchased from if the toner doesn't pull through.

My printer brother HL2170W has toner, the toner light is not flashing but whet its prints it comes blank

This sounds like an issue with either the toner cartridge or the drum unit. Have either of these consumables been changed recently? This should help identify the likely cause.

If the drum has been changed recently I would recommend cleaning the corona wire. If however the toner has been changed there isn't masses I can recommend in terms of trouble shooting. it may however be worth running off 15-30 pages in the hope of pulling the toner through.

Failing this I would recommend calling Brother technical support in case the issue is hardware related and not the fault of a consumable.

Never used caaned air near a copier. A copier vacuum will **** out the toner. Canned air just makes the problem worse. When changing the drum unit did you change the drum blade ? Try running 50 blank pages to see if it clears up. Good luck.

Please clean the drum and the fuser, also check the toner cartridges if there's any overflown toner powder spilled. The problem is caused when the toner waste tank in the drum is full or overflowing.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

HP p2015 printer has stopped printing

check inside the toner door on the right side. there should be a plastic tab which opens the laser shutter when the door is closed. if this is broken then the lase shutter will not open and will produce blank pages.
