Question about Brother DCP-7040 Laser Printer

Brother DCP-7040 Laser Printer Issue

Two problems: 1). It no longer scans. 2). It prints blank pages (no matter the application). I have rebooted my system, unplugged it from my computer, removed the drum/toner and shook it, and I cleaned the wire. Why don't these two items work any longer?

With the computer off will the printer still make a copy? If the printer can still make a copy stand alone, then try deleteing the printer and reinstalling the printer driver.

This sounds like a laser or high voltage problem. Very much technical to fix.

SOURCE: how reset drum page counter brother dcp-7040

This works for my DCP-7020, so it may work on the 7040.

If your drum is still good - take it out and put it back in - the trick is to LEAVE THE FRONT DOOR OPEN after you put it back in. With the door still OPEN push the "options" button and you will be prompted for "New Drum?" and then push the "Up" button for 'Yes' and "Accepted" will appear on the lcd screen - and then the drum counter will be reset.

SOURCE: how to check the toner level of Brother printer

It has no accurate measure of the toner left, it is reset when you put in a fresh toner and just counts prints. The Brother shines a light thru a little window from right to left and when the toner is empty the light shines thru and it says it's empty.

How do I clean the toner


Sounds like a poor quality toner was put in your cartridge. If you are using remanufactured cartridges see your remanufacturer for a replacement. If you are using OEM cartridges contact Brother directly and they can sort out the issues and supply replacement cartridges.

Brother dcp 7040 prints grey film over the page


someone cheaped out and got the el cheapo paper.
The low quality paper has paper dust on every page....
when the printer feeds this cheap paper thru the machine it drops the dust onto the tonor cartridge rollers and causes the roller to accumulate toner on the roller... this in turn is transfered to the pages being printed.
check your machines operation manual. There may be a clean cycle you can try to run to clean the rollers...
I had to buy a new toner cartridge for mine when this happened.

My Brother DCP 7040 printer can only print 1 copy... even if input request to print multiple copies of something


I've had the same problem with my Brother MFC-9440CN and XP Pro.
Try changing Printer properties (Control Panel\Printers) and click Advanced\Printer Processor button. Here you can try to change Printer processor: WinPrint, ModiPrint, hpzpplhn, LMPRTPRC.

I solved my problem choosing hpzpplhn (RAW).You can also try to deactivate 'Enable advanced printing features' in the printer, advanced, properties...
