Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

2 Answers

All new toner but prints everything blue

I have a Brother HL-4040CN that is two months old. It's been printing great until I changed the cyan toner. Everything is now printing with a blue cast. I tried cleaning the drum, shaking the toner, recalibrating, still nothing. When I replaced the other colors, it worked fine. I made a test sample sheet in photoshop with 3 boxes, cyan, magenta, yellow and those printed perfectly. I am using generic toner, however the other colors have worked fine. I kinda doubt this would haven anything to do with it.

You should go where you bought the ink and ask for you money back because it was defective, provided that you bought it from a ligitimate source and not fly by night outfit. But I thought that even in large quantities the colors came balanced and you could only buy them in threes.

I kinda don't doubt it at all. It could be a bad lot of toner, or another problem with a mechanism within it...regardless, you're cartridge is defective -return it.

The colours on our HL-4040CN have gone all strange - when we perform colour calibration the colours go either red or green. All toners are new and the drum has been replaced recently as well. We do a lot...


Hi

We need to isolated the problem on what cause ink cartridge not print in color. When even you installed new cartridges, It is necessary to run the print nozzle to clean the print head. Also, please try to clean the print head manually by removing all the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a white paper with alcohol until ink flows and then return it back and run the print nozzle for 2 times.

Then try to print again.

If it does not help you, please let me know to give you more help.

Can someone please help me i have just printed off 400 prints with my brother hl 4040CN laser printerits brand new and its now saying my cyan toner has ran out this is impossible i am right in the middle...


Your toner usage will depend upon how much of each color toner is used on each page. (To conserve colors when printing in Black and White only, specify monochrome in your printer setup) <div>I had similar problems when printing publicity flyers. The toner cartridges claim to be good for about 2000 prints each, but I was lucky to get 3 or 400 pages when printing blocks of color. The TN115 cartridges hold significantly more toner, and the cartridges that come with the printer are TINY.</div>

I have a 5 month old Brother HL-4040cn. It no longer prints crisp pictures. They look screened as for a newspaper. All ink is fresh, all internal services are at or near 100%. Ideas?


There is a setting in these which produces this effect - draft printing? Something like that. In the PC printer software somewhere there should be a screen which allows you to choose the type of print you want. It may be available when you want to print. For images the quality should ALWAYS be 'Normal', or high quality.

HL-4040CN don't show or read new refilled magenta cartridge.


If you have removed and reinstalled the magenta cartridge several times, it is very likely the cartridge is defective out of the box. If you have another magenta cartridge, put that one in and see if the problem resolves. I'm betting it will. If that second cartridge does work, then return the defective cartridge to where you purchased it - they should replace it without a hassle.
