Replace fuser assembly/have fuser unit replaced if you have tried fresh quality paper from a unopened ream. The first versions of these had the fuser and exit assembly modified by brother to help eliminate excessive curl last 9 digits of serial number are higher than D5J760210 have already been modified, if lower ie D4Z99999 need to get mod. fitted.

SOURCE: Toner smudges along the extreme right side of the paper

If the smudges are gradually fading then it's likely just excess toner hitting the fuse drum. Try a few cleaning cycles/test prints and see if that makes it go away. If not, see if you can get a replacement toner.

SOURCE: I have a Brother HL-2040. The "paper light is on & won't print.

Hi,
Sounds like a paper jam. There's a flap at the back of the printer-once open you should be able to see if the paper is stuck there. (Exactly the problem I had yesterday-I didn't spot it at first and it nearly drove me mad! :)
Good luck,
Raf

Remove the Toner Drum unit and look for a little blue tab. Slide it back and forth a couple of times to clean a corona wire and see if that helps.If the problem still exists, you may try this 2nd option.

> the front door. There is something wrong with the front door, or the mechanisms that signal that it is closed. Closing the front door (the one that you open to pull out the toner and drum) all the way to where it snaps into place then the paper light flashes red. However closing the front door to the point where the "ready" light comes on (don't snap the door into place, just close it and let it rest in place without snapping it closed) and the printer prints fine, pulls paper from the tray and prints like it should.

So give it a try, don't snap the front door all the way closed to where it snaps closed, just close the door to where it's resting closed to where the ready light comes on and see if this helps you.

What is the cause of problem where my printer (HL 1440) prints with black smudges & streaks of ink on the paper.


sounds like a possible problem with possibly the drum or the transfer belt. trying a different toner cartridge may fix the problem but it may not. Most likely given the cost of repair, replacement may be your best option.
thank you,

Just installed a new toner cartridge and I'm getting 3 horizontal smudges (feint traces of the first line of text in each smudge) any suggestions?


you may have put a scratch mark on the drum. take the toner out and manually rotate the drum and see if you can find the same smudges.

It won't print - says manual feed - load paper tray. Its a brand new printer (Brother HL-4040CDN) and the paper tray is full


The printer has an "alternate" feed, i.e., for envelopes and/or for special paper.

Open the door to access that "manual" tray, take some paper from the "normal" tray, and insert the paper into the "manual" tray.

Or, on the printer's controls, set the "standard" feed, rather than the "manual" feed, and press PRINT.

BIG BLACK STREAK ON PAPER


If you're experiencing horizontal streaks, and already tried changing cartridges but that don't help, look in the bottom of the paper tray. If that small metal ground terminal gets ditry or bent, that could be the cause.

Printing black smudges across the page at 10 cm intervals


Most likely cause by the drum unit. Replace drum or upgrade printer.
