Canon NP4050 putting out blank pages

The NP 4050 has been known for given blank copies... Is the developing unit locked in place... There is a Grey or blue lever inside the front door to the right... It is under the toner hopper. It's been along time... I believe the lever should be clicked to the right and up. Also there is a locking screw that holds it in place, Most times that screw is missing and the unit falls away from the drum unit and you get blank copies and the front door will close.. Good Luck

Copy coming out blank

Normally a blank copy is caused by the image not being transfered from the drum to the copy paper. Which indicates a problem with the transfer step of the process, check for a bad transfer roller or a bad transfer belt. If this is not very obvious, run a copy and try to turn the machine off or open the front cover during the copy process when the copy paper is about half way under the drum and check for a toner image on the drum. If there is no toner image on the drum you may have a developer problem, broken drive gears etc. But if there is a toner image on the drum but no image on the paper then it is a transfer issue.

What does ap mean

"AP" stands for Agitation in Process", it appears in the copy quantity display when toner is being replenished inside of the copier. Wait a few minutes..this happens after continuously copying for long periods, or copying dense things like photos. Sometimes it will occur after running the machine when it is out of toner. replace toner and turn on/off a few times to "agitate toner. Don't worry about the scan lamp being lit while this is happening, it will go out.
Hope this helps

Brother HL2040 - Shading of toner all over my page when I print

The drum is a very sensitive part. Should not touch with bare hand, expose to light for long, etc. With what did you clean,it.

My Brother HL 5240 has Status toner, drum and paper lights on, I bought it on 4/30/08, new toner, plenty of paper, it showed on computer: printer is off line, but it was connected with computer. Really...

The drum light will flash on my brother HL-5240 Laser Printer when printing but it continues to print just fine. Does this mean the drum needs to be replaced?

Canon6050 toner recycling

I have glanced at and passed by your question several times, and finally cannot resist the urge to answer. Canon copiers are unique in the fact that they are " monocomponent". This probably means nothing to the average person. But suffice it to say,the"waste toner" you speak of is primarily drum polish and paper dust, neither of which is very good at producing a decent copy. In fact, ANY percentage of waste toner introduced into the Canon copy process is a recipe for disaster. I primarily say this because at some point you will have to replace the development unit (or have some serious service) and probably replace the drum ($1000) if you continue. I am not a Canon employee but have worked on Canon equipment for over 20 years. I merely wish to help. I would be hard pressed to see how you can save enough money up front to cover the back end costs.

Brother HL-2040 All LEDs stay lit and the printer no longer works

Turn it on and when all the LEDs light up, THEN press the Go button. One or more LEDs will stay lit and the others will be off. Look in the user manual (you can find it online at the Brothers site if you don't have one). There is a chart in the Troubleshooting section that will tell you what problem your particluar combination of "lit" buttons indicates. It may suggest fixes, or depending on the problem, tell you to see a repair person.
