I have an HP 4515 that is printing blank pages. I have tried to replace the toner and the power supply board. Neither resolved the issue. When the paper gets deliver out the paper is warm. This occurs when...


I believe I understand your issue:-
The printer is able to come to ready- your still able to navigate the menus. the printer goes through all the motions of printing except producing an image-
Having the machine print a test page ( internal Print ) tests whether the formatter is still able to generate a digital image ready for the print engine, but does not diagnose the print engine-
1) power down and remove power cord
2)remove the toner cartridge, use a pair of pliers and gently rotate the drum ( within the toner cartridge, a drive gear/mesh can be found on the end of the toner unit)- are you able to turn this drum or has it seized?
if it doesnt replace the new toner with another NEW toner and try again
3) return the power and power up the machine having first disconnected all network connections.
allow the machine to come to ready.
4) ask the printer for a config page ( internal print) and estimate when the paper is immediately below the drum surface ( toner cart) and using the power switch turn the printer off- causing a jam in the centre of the printer - this is ok we do this to see if an image has been generated on the drum surface- remove the toner cartridge and slide the drum protector plate to the side, look carefully at the drum suface ( you should see a latent image of a config page, at this point look at the paper still jammed inside the printer and see if there are any signs of toner ( there should be part of an image allready on the surface ) now if there is an image on the drum but no image on the paper then I would replace the transfer roller and or transfer HVT power unit, if however there is no image on the drum then you have a very serious problem which will require a new laser unit ( but this should really come up with a diagnostic error code)or Primary HVT unit.

I have a Brother HL - 2040 printer. It has been turned off. Having switched it back on I now have the Toner, drum and paper lamps on and it hasn't warmed up. Does this mean I need to purchase a new...


If all the LED's are flashing and continue to flash for more than 10 minutes with the unit powered up, it needs to be serviced or replaced. (That is toner, drum, paper and the Ready light all blinking -> critical error found in self-test.) If the Ready light is off and the rest of the lights are steady, the toner is out, the corona wire needs cleaning and the paper tray either is empty or not picking up the paper.

See http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000100/000070/faq000170_005.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2040_all&Cat=11 for details on the errors and solutions.

I hope this helps.

Red "Paper" light stays on; printer will not print.


Paper light flashing could mean several things on this machine.

There could be a paper jam in the machine. Open the front cover remove the drum and toner and look in the machine. You can also check in between the drum and toner by removing the toner from the drum. Open the back cover and look for a Jam as well.

Try putting a piece of paper in the manual feed tray which is right above the paper tray, sometimes on certain documents the margins are too big and asks to go into the manual feed slot.

Printer Problems


Hi, it sounds like you need to change the drum. If you are using the High Yield TN660 toner is your printer, then the drum needs changing every 3-4 toners. If using the low yield TN6300 toner then your drum needs to be replaced every 6-7 toners. Hope this helps

Paper Jam


In that case try turning the toner and drum by hand (while it is out) can they turn? check the gears that corresponds to them in the machine?
put a marker on the very edge of the drum and put in after it says ready take out and look at the mark did it rotate?

Paper light on...!!


Turn the printer off. Take out the toner drum and cartridge. Remove the toner cartridge by pressing on the blue lever on the left side. Check for paper. Replace the cartridge. At the rear of the toner drum is a blue slide lever on the right side for cleaning the corona wire. Move the lever back and forth, left and right, about 30 times. Reset lever to far right side with arrows lining up. Set the drum and cartridge aside. Remove the paper tray and look inside for a jammed sheet of paper. Flip the back lid down and check for paper. Snap the back lid up, replace the paper tray, and replace the drum and toner cartridge. Turn the printer on. Press the ready button 3 times quickly. It should print a specifications sheet. If it does, try printing from your computer. If this did not help, Brother tech support is 1-800-276-7746. Robi
