SOURCE: I got a brand new Brother HL-4040 CDN and it doesn't print?

You may not have your paper holder all the way engaed like it should be. It is trying to pick up a piece of paper and can't find one.I hope you did put the paper in and some of the printers you can put the paper in more than one place it may be looking for the paper in that place. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: prints only blank pages

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Hl 2270 won't stop printing


I would guess you were trying to print a spread sheet or similar. It has nothing to do with the reset gear on the cartridge. You need to open your printers folder on the computer, open the print queue for the printer, and cancel all documents waiting to be printed. That may take more than one try. When you are ready to print again, be sure you know what is to be printed before committing.

HL 4040CN is printing with a pink tint, it also says drum end soon and has said that for a while. What sould I do?


I have a similar problem now: magenta stain over the entire page when printing anything with any color (even just a hyperlink); B&W text is no problem.Not the PC; even the Demo Page from the 4040 menu does this. Updated the 4040 firmware tonight to latest (1.24, etc), but no better.Recently replaced the Magenta cartridge (official Brother cartridge), though saw this problem near end-of-life of the previous Magenta cartridge. Drum Unit status is 42%, so not expected to be near end-of-life.

The drum unit will need to be replaced

Sounds like the toner cartridge is faulty. I would change the cartridge.

Printing blank pages


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