There is nothing to reset the toner will load itself unless there is another problem. Make sure the insert plug from the old bottle came out before you placed the new bottle in.

Scanner image is askew


Base on your explainination it seems like, this is because of your setting in MP Navigator, the image may not be scanned properly. In such a case, it is necessary to match the settings in MP Navigator to the document. please do the following. 1) Match the type of the document on the platen glass to the document type set in MP Navigator. For example, when scanning a color photo, select Color Photo in Document Type of MP Navigator. 2) Match the size of the document on the platen glass to the document size in MP Navigator. For example, when the document size is A4, select A4 in Document Size of MP Navigator. (Memo) Auto Detect is set in Document Size as the default.

Have a black line on all my scanned files, runs the length of the page, about 1 1/2 inches from the left edge.


To determine if the vertical lines appearing on your printed documents are related to a printing or scanning issue, print a test page by pressing MENU, 4 (Printer), 2 (Print Options), 3(Test Print) and COLOR START.
If the vertical lines appear on the Test Print continue to Procedure A:Cleaning the Corona Wires Inside the Drum.
If the vertical lines do NOT appear on the Test Print continue to Procedure B: Cleaning the Scanner Glass.
Procedure A: Cleaning the Corona Wires Inside the Drum:
NOTE: Brother strongly recommends that customers do not use generic drumunits and/or toner cartridges, or refill their Brother toner cartridge. Each Brother laser printer is designed to work at pre-set temperatures that are matched exactly to each of our individual toner formulations. Each individual component is designed to work with the other to ensure quality and reliability. Using non-Brother supplies may affect the hardware performance, print quality and machine reliability. The Brotherlimited warranty does not apply to any problem that is caused by the useof unauthorized third party drum units, toner cartridges or toner.
A1. Power off the Brother machine using the power switch located on the right side of the machine.
A2. Press down on the front cover release lever and open the front coverby pulling it towards you.

NOTE: If you cannot pull the drum unit out, make sure that the front cover is fully open.
A4. Remove the toner cartridges one at a time, by holding the handle of the cartridge and lifting it up and out of the drum unit.
Note: We recommend you place the toner cartridge(s) on a clean, flat surface with a piece of disposable paper underneath it in case you accidentally spill or scatter toner.
A5. Lift the white plastic corona wire cover by lifting the tabs locatedon the right and left side of the cover.
A6. Clean the corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the green tab from left to right several times.
Note: Be sure to return the tab to the home position. If you do not, printed pages may have a vertical stripe.
A7. Close the corona wire cover.
A8. Repeat Steps 5 through 7 to clean each of the remaining three coronawires.
A9. Reinstall the toner cartridge(s):
NOTE: Before reinstalling the toner cartridge, shake the toner cartridgeside to side.
Hold the handle of the toner cartridge and slide the toner cartridge into the drum unit. Make sure that you match the toner cartridge color to the same color label on the drum. Fold down the toner cartridge handle once the toner cartridge is in place. Repeat this for all the toner cartridges.

A11. Close the front door and power on the Brother machine.

Black copies


If it's copying all black then here's a test. Lift the lid and look at the glass plate where you would normally place your original, when you push the start button does the lamp under the glass illuminate? if not then we've found the problem, the lamp or it's driver is faulty and it will require a technician to fix it.

Copy is not clear


Hi
The first thing you must check is the small scanner glass,this is the narrow glass that the machine is using when you use the dockfeeder,clean that glass and make sure there is no back dots on the glass.Even a small dot can cause lines on your page.But this lines will only be sen if you using the docfeeder.
The second probem can be the drum cartridge that is faulty.With this problem all your copies and printed pages will have lines.
If your drum is ok,the next thing that goes wrong is the fixing assy.

AL-1631 TONER LEAKING


The one thing that will cause that, and has been something I have seen more than once. Make sure the machine front to back, is the machine sitting level? Take a line level and place it on the document glass front to back and see if the machine is level.
What happens is the toner and developer work to one end of the cartridge and it overwhelms that end. The other problem, is the cartridges being stored on end and not flat.
The ink then is all on one side and will not be able to stay in the cartridge when run..

Shaded backround on pages Xerox 5830. What could be the cause?


2 things primarily.
1 is dirty optics. Remove the glass, and the black optics tub. clean all the mirrors the lens and the lamp and the surrounding area around the lamp.
2. The copy cartridge may need replaced.

If the backgroung remains pretty consistant, it is most likely the optics.
If the backgroung get worse as the machine runs, or is different every other page, the problem is the copy cartridge.

Canon MP 530 yellow cartridge reported as duplicate, it is not, won't work


dear RL


try this

start
Settings
Printers and Faxes
right click on your printer icon
click on "Printing Preferences"
in the dialog box, click on "Maintenance"
click on "View Printer Status"
in the dialog box, click on "Options"
then deselect the "Enable Status Monitor" option

You may get a dialog box asking you something (I didn't get one) but just hold the "Resume" button down for more than 5 seconds and all will be well.

When you need to check the levels, you can either look at the cartridges physically or enable the status monitor (if you are still using 'legal' cartridges in one or more slots).

if not work

try to change your catridge with new one, or you can buy eraser chipset about $ 5-6
with this chip you can refill your ink with any compatible PGI-5

thanks

Printer problem


Does the line appear while copying or printing ?

To isolate the issue try to print a self test page :

1. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.

2. Release both buttons. The self-test page prints.

If you see lines on the test page then the issue is with the cartridge or cartridge contacts. Clean the cartridge and cartridge contacts inside the printer.

rRemove both the cartridges. Using a clean, dry lint-free cloth (a coffee filter works well), wipe the cartridge contacts, from the top to the bottom. The contact area of the cartridge should be rubbed briskly to remove the waxy lubricant material from the gold contacts.
The contacts inside the printer may also require cleaning. Using a clean, dry, lint-free cloth. Gently wipe the contacts, from the top to the bottom.
Reinsert the cartridge and print. If the issue issue persists replace cartridge(s).



If you do not see lines on the test page. Place the same test page on the scanner glass and make a color copy. If the lines are on the copied Image the issue is with the scanner glass.
clean the scanner glass :

Clean the glass and scanner backing
  1. Turn off the all-in-one.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Unplug the power cord from the back of the all-in-one.
  4. Raise the lid.
  5. Clean the glass with a soft dry cloth, or a sponge slightly moistened with non-abrasive glass cleaner or water. CAUTION: Do not use abrasives, acetone, benzene, or carbon tetrachloride on the glass; they can damage it. Do not place or spray liquid directly on the glass; the liquid might seep under the glass and damage the device.
  6. Dry the glass with a chamois, cellulose sponge or soft cotton cloth to prevent spotting.
  7. Clean the white scanner backing with a soft dry cloth or sponge slightly moistened with water, and allow it to dry.
Try a blank copy
  1. Plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  2. Plug the power cord into the all-in-one.
  3. Turn the power on.
  4. Close the lid; do not place any paper on the glass.
  5. Load paper in the paper tray.
  6. Do either of the following:
    • Press Start Copy Black to start a black-and-white copy job.
    • Press Start Copy Color to start a color copy job.
  7. If the output is a full/half-black page, or has vertical black lines, the product needs service or contact HP for in warranty replacement.
Thank you .
