I have change toner but same massage given


Then you still might have a bad toner cartridge. Try the following in the EXACT order:
1 Pull out the toner cartridge.
2 close the printer back up and let it recognize that there is not toner cartridge.
3 turn the printer oss
4 insert the new toner cartridge
5 turn the printer back on.
if the above fails you will need a new cartridge, preferably a different brand.

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...

If you have changed the toner cartridge, the printer must complete a calibration cycle (up to 150 seconds). If you open the door before the Ready indicator on the control panel lights up and the Error indicator turns off, the printer stops and repeats the calibration cycle.

1. Open the Status Display (double-click on Status Display icon in the system tray on the lower right-hand portion of the task bar, OR click Start/Programs/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Utilities/KONICA MINOLTA magicolor 2300W Status), and then check which toner color is empty.
2. From the Print menu choose Toner Replace...
3. In the Color list box, select the color of the toner cartridge to be replaced (CYAN, MAGENTA, YELLOW, or BLACK).
4. Select the capacity of the new toner cartridge (1500 or 4500).
5. Click OK.
6. When the toner indicator on the control panel starts flashing, open the printer's front door. The carousel is automatically repositioned so that the appropriate toner cartridge can be removed.

2300-2.gif9. Remove the new toner cartridge from its shipping carton.

Hi there I have a brother HL-2170 W and have a page in the machine that is jammed. I actually turned the power off in the middle of a print job. What do I do? when I turn the power on the error light...


You should be able to solve your issue by following the first 7 steps below for clearing paper jams. After that put your printer back together and see if it starts working. If not, follow the rest of the steps and you should be fine.
  1. Open the front of the printer.
  2. Slowly take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly. Some of the jammed paper will be pulled out with the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  3. Set the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly on a piece of disposable paper or cloth in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
  4. To prevent damage to the printer caused by static electricity, DO NOT touch the electrodes inside the printer.
  5. Close the front cover.

    Note: Do not put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in at this point.

  6. Pull the paper tray completely out of the printer.
  7. Pull the jammed paper down and out of the printer.
  8. Open the back cover (back output tray).
  9. Still looking at the back of the printer, pull the tab toward you to open the fuser cover.
  10. Pull the jammed paper out of the fuser unit.

    HOT SURFACE
    After you have just used the printer, some internal parts of the printer will be extremely hot. Wait for the printer to cool down before you touch the internal parts of the printer.

  11. Close the back cover (back output tray).
  12. On the drum unit you set aside, push down the green lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Clear the jammed paper if there is any inside the drum unit.


    CAUTION
    Handle the toner cartridge carefully. If toner scatters on your hands or clothes, wipe or wash it off with cold water at once.

    To avoid print quality problems, DO NOT touch the roller part of the toner. Try to keep you hands, fingers and everything else away from there.

  13. Put the toner cartridge back into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put the cartridge in properly, the green lock lever will lift automatically.
  14. Open the front cover. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer.
  15. Put the paper tray firmly back in the printer.
  16. Close the front cover.
  17. Make sure that the Error LED is now off.

How to remove the toner cartridges


Close the cover to the machine and make sure you aren't getting any other error messages other than the toner. When the printer is at the ready state press the rotate toner button. You should hear the printer rotate the toner and then the light over the cyan cartridge will come on. Keep pressing the rotate toner button until you get to the color you want to replace. Open the top cover and front door where the KM logo is. You should see the cyan cartridge in place. Pull the cyan tab back toward you. The front part of the toner should release. Now pull the tab and the toner straight up and out of the printer. If you are having problems getting the toner out it is probably not in the correct position. There is a slot on either side of the printer that he back end of the toner cartridge needs to be in before the toner will come out.
