Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Hl-2140 noises When I print with my HL-2140, there are all kinds of squeaking and squealing happening. I have never replaced the toner cartridge and the unit was working fine until the noises started. Are any disassembly instructions available?

For a possible fix to the Brother HL-2140 squeal/squeak/noise problem open the printer at the other side from the paper tray and toner cartridge door. You should see a little black roller rod along with some white wheels.

The noise may be coming from the contact between the wheels/rollers which pull paper toward the output tray on top after it has been printed.

Check and clean/wipe the wheels and black rod, especially in the center area. Hopefully the noise will now be reduced/eliminated.

Cheers, Stephen

Tip

Brother HL-2140 does not print even if toner is full


In the Brother HL-2140 printer, it shows the Toner led light is on. Even if there is plenty of toner on the cartridge. It just wont print anything after initiating a print job since the toner light is on.Here is a trick on what you need to do:

1. Turn off the Brother HL-2140 printer.
2. Open the front access door to take out the toner from the carriage.
3. Notice that on both sides of the toner, you will see a small hole which is most probably the sensor.
4. What you do is to cover the sensor holes with masking tape and color the tape with black marker. Or, you can also use an electrical tape to cover them.
5. Shake the toner so that the ink inside will redistribute evenly.
6. Return the toner to the carriage and try to initiate a print again.

That's it!

Does not print / toner light on / replaced toner / does not print and toner light still on


Try to replace new toner or maybe you did not insert it well that it didnt connect firm into the printer. Can I know what else you do before it happen. Did you refill the cartridge by yourself.

My Brother HL2140 printer was running fine and all of a sudden the toner light is on and it stopped printing. Just yesterday when i printed out the status for the drum and toner it showed more than 80 %...


636 is a lot of pages and depends on the toner coverage you may need to replace the toner.. 80 - 75% (is that used is remaining ??) any way check your waste toner basket first (see you manual for instructions) chances are its filled and needs cleaning or replacing (see your manual for instructions) If its fine then change your toner .. If you have the demo toner (toner shipped with machine) these contain less toner than a new cartridge and will finish faster ...

I have a new Hl 2140 and haven´t printed more than 100 copys but now the toner light is on and the printer refuses to print


Tip the toner cartridge from end to end to redistribute the toner. You will get more mileage out of it, if it is simply a low toner issue.
