Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Low print quality

I have a brother HL1440 laser printer. The drum light and ready light are on solid. I have very recently replaced the drum. The drum light is still on as is the ready light. The toner was last replaced in feb of this year. Is it time to replace the toner again?

It depends upon the number of prints you have done since Feb and the toner cartridge capacity. Some toner cartridges have 2500 page capacity others have 5000 pages or more.
If you think you have not exceeded or reached the cartridge capacity, take it out of the printer and give it a shake in a horizontal position to distribute the toner evenly across the drum and place it back in the printer. This also works when the toner is nearly empty.

My Brother HL-1440 Laser printer is not printing. Whenever I try to print something there is a sound coming from the printer with a high tone, then a low tone. This is the first time I have experienced...


this is normally a symptom of the Fuser unit failing within the printer. our company uses nothing but Brother printers and i have seen this error a few times.

on very rare occasions its not the fuser and unplugging the power lead and leaving it for ten minutes will resolve the problem. if you have already tried this however the problem your getting is to-do with the Fuser unit within the printer being broken..

unfortunately from past experiences a replacement fuser unit for one of these laser printers is actually more than the cost of a new laser printer...

a quick google search revealed this site who are offering fuser replacements for $119.00

hope this helps.

Drum light blinking


The light blinking means it's almost used up, when it comes on solid it will stop printing. If your prints still look good you can open the front door and hold the go button til all lights flash, and it will think it's a new drum. You can replace then when print quality gets bad.

I've recently installed a new Brother toner, but the drum light is flashing and the Brother hl 5140 printer won't print


DRUM UNIT "spent"
It can be reset if the printing quality is good
To reset the drum follow the instructions below:
Press the cover release button and then open the front cover of the printer.

Press and hold down Go button until all 4 LEDs are lit. Once all 4 LEDs are lit, release the Go button.

Close the front cover.
Make sure that the Drum LED is now off.
Caution: Reset the drum counter only when you replaced the drum unit with a new one.

Drum Light flashing


You can continue to use the printer, but when print quality deteriorates, replace drum. Light will continue to flash until you do so.
