Brother HL-2140 laser printer, where is the toner located


The toner cartridge is inside the printer's drum unit. To change the toner, make sure that the printer is on and then open the front cover by pulling it down. Then pull the drum and toner cartridge assembly out of the printer. (Take care not to touch the electrodes on the sides of the drum.) Push down on the green lever (on the left side of the drum unit). Then you can remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit.

Open your new toner cartridge and then shake it gently and remove the protective cover. Put the new cartridge into the drum unit and push down until it clicks (the green lever should come up automatically). Slide the green tab along the corona wire back and forth several times. (Return it to the home position when done).

Then return the drum and toner assembly to the printer and close the front cover. Wait until the Ready light is lit before turning off the printer or reopening the front cover.

For pictures of the HL-2140 drum and toner assembly (and the toner replacement procedure), see page 60 and subsequent pages of the manual here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002308/cv_hl2140_usaeng_usr_d.pdf .

I hope this helps.

I was unable to loace the Toner Cartridge. Could you please tell me where to open up and how to replace the tomer cartridge? Thank you. Regards, Lisa Li


Make sure that the printer is turned on. Open the front cover. Slowly but firmly pull the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly out of the machine. Push down the green lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. Unpack the new toner cartridge. Hold the cartridge level with both hands and gently rock it from side to side five or six times to spread the toner evenly inside the cartridge. Pull off the protective cover. Put the new toner cartridge firmly into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the green tab from right to left and left to right several times. Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer. Close the front cover.

If you want even more detailed information, there is a how to guide with ilustrations on each step on the Brother website.

I need to change the toner of my printer HL-2140 model.how can i do it?


Turn on printer,open cover by pulling the handle (the one with a depression)towards you and pull down,you can see the ink drum of the printer,grip the drum assembly out.Get a big page of newspaper and lay the toner drum on to prevent the ink of making a mess. Then you'll notice a green lever on the drum,press it down to release the toner cartridge(carefull handling must be observed).Put the cartridge in plastic bag for proper disposal.And with a new toner installed in the drum do the reverse of the procedure.

How to replace the toner cartridge. Pushing down on the green lever is not releasing the toner cartridge. DCP 70 40 Brother


Remove the drum and toner unit from the machine first, then. Press the green lever while picking up on rear of the toner unit. Be careful not to grab the drum unit tray (under the toner unit), as the toner sits in a sort of tray of the drum unit.

Do not try to depress the green lever, since you need to remove the cartridge AND its base altogether. Just grab the front middle part of the assembly, pull it out slowly and steadily. You may need to apply extra force in doing so as it does take some effort to disengage the cartridge assemly from its seated position.
After the cartridge is removed, you may find some jamed paper inside. simply remove it and the printer should work again.
You may email me at stevenjoy@gmail.com should you have further questions.
