It's about small rounded toner with two switched positions: locked and unlocked. When locked, everything works fine. When you twist it for 30degrees and unlock, I can not pull it out. I am afraid If I apply full force. Any tips please?

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.
Instructions Things You'll Need:
* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360) * Paper towel or scrap paper
Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.
Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.
Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.
Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.
Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.
Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.
Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.
Trata esto: When installing the C3400n printer, or when replacing the toner
cartridge, be sure to fully insert the toner cartridge into the image
drum, and make sure the blue lever is pushed ALL THE WAY toward the back
of the printer (fully locked position). If it is not fully closed
(locked), a "toner sensor" or "toner empty" message may result. Note:
(Picture at bottom shows incorrect position of locked toner cartridge that may result in either of these messages).
Installation Procedure of Image Drum and Toner Cartridge:
>> Insure the toner is fully locked, see
photo below showing the correct and incorrect positions of the locked
I just changed my black toner this past week, and finally figured out why the cartridges get stuck like this.
First, you must eject the toner cartridge on the front-panel menu: Menu->Replace Toner->Eject Toner->Black(K)
It will say "Rotating to Black Toner(K)" and then say "Black Toner(K) Ready to Eject"
Now, open the front panel and you'll see the black toner cartridge in front. You can also open the top panel if you want more light on your work area.
Lift the lock handle on the old toner cartridge to the "unlock" position, and here's the part that the Dell instructions don't have:
There are two channels for the toner cartridges -- one on each side. Run your finger down the channel on the right, and you'll feel a small, spring-loaded catch. This catch often gets sticky and won't release the cartridge without some help. Don't force it, but gently move it towards the back of the printer and it should release.
Now the old cartrdige should slide right out, and you can finish per the instructions that came with the new cartridge.
If you can not rotate the toners by using the DISPLAY MENU,
You can rotate them MANUALLY, using a flat head screwdriver or even a key for your car or front door.
Open Front Cover/Door of Printer
Remove Waste Toner Box
Where you see the side of the Blue Cartridge, look to the LEFT and locate a small rectangle with a circle inside it.
Push your car key or flat head screwdriver into this rectangle and the circle will push back and release the lock on the cartridge, holding in with one hand and turning cartridge with the other hand until you get the cartridge you want to replace.
Remove the screwdriver / car key and pull out the empty cartridge and replace with new one.
Replace Waste Toner Box, close front cover/door, switch on and the printer will rotate back itself to it's normally position...... JOB DONE
Set Belt CG The OPC belt cartridge needs replacement.
Replacing the Optical Photoconductor (OPC) Belt Cartridge Replace the OPC belt cartridge at least once every 12 months, or when the control panel display indicates that replacement is necessary.

Unlock the lever to open the front cover. This releases the pressure on the toner cartridges. 3. Unlock the lever to open the top cover fully. 4. Pull the green OPC belt cartridge lock levers up until they unlock.
5. Pull the used OPC belt cartridge upward and out of the printer carefully to avoid spilling toner. 6. Discard the used OPC belt cartridge Caution! Do not touch or wipe off any powder that is on the OPC belt, nor expose the OPC belt to light. 7. Remove the two shipping pins from the new OPC belt cartridge. 8. Remove the protective sheet that covers the photosensitive belt. 9. Slide the new OPC belt cartridge downward into both green lock-lever guides and into the printer carefully. 10. Push the green OPC belt cartridge lock levers down until they lock. 11. Close the top and front covers carefully until they both lock.

turn off eq - open and remove the drum with the color cartridge in locked position still in place - on the drum on the cartridge lock side you will find a small (1/4 ") rectangular "window"...with the catridge in locked position the window should be open so you can see the sensor...when the cartridge is unlocked the window should be closed...so with the cartridge locked, using a tiny pointed object (paper clip), gently move the panel up or down to the open position (mine moved up)....replace the drum with cartridge...make sure it is set properly...close up everything and turn eq back on....you may have to do this two or three times to make sure the window stays open when the lock is engaged...but this is what the "tech"(salesman) did...good luck
