    see if you have a paper jam



    1. Turn off the printer.

    2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.

    3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.

    4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.

    5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.

    6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by
      holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the
      paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling
      out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

    7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do
      this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any
      obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.

    8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or
      ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the
      printer back on.

    9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

    10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.







    alternative :

    Load
    a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume
    button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the
    printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.






    Also clean and inspect the printer.

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer


How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

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.


Hope it helps...

Brother hl-2030 - hi, is it possible to know how many pages a drum has printed?


Most laser printer do not have a page counter, because the toner cartridge may come in a couple of toner sizes and there is no way of accurately determine how much tone is used on each page as this can vary considerably.
If the printer gives a message that the toner is low, you can get several more prints by shaking the toner in a horizontal position and placing it back into the printer.

My brother printer HL-2035 keeps jamming the paper. I have changed the drum and toner and the drum light is still on when it prints. Can you help please?


I think you need to reset the consumables counter to clear the drum warning light as the printer can't automatically recognise new parts. If you've bought a genuine Brother drum unit there will be detailed instructions inside the box as to how you reset it which usually involves holding down the only button whilst switching the machine on. As for the paper jams, it could be something as simple as loading less paper and fanning it to get some air between the sheets before sliding it into the tray or it could be that you need to buy a new paper feed kit which is fairly cheap and easy to install.

Brother hl-2030


Hi from what i have read on the internet and past experience with these printers (our company has 20 -30 of them) the fault is within the printer and requires a service call from brother.

if its still under warrenty i would suggest taking it back for a replacement if that is not possible but its still under warranty ring up brother in your country and get them to send out an engineer. we have just had another one of our printers start doing this after some routine maintance (we simply used compressed air cans to clean out any "rubbish where the toner / drum assembly goes) after that the printer is now flashing all 4 lights.

sorry i cannot be more positive about the problem but as mentioned its a fault within the printer that requires an engineer.
