Brother hl-2030 - hi, is it possible to know how many pages a drum has printed?

Most laser printer do not have a page counter, because the toner cartridge may come in a couple of toner sizes and there is no way of accurately determine how much tone is used on each page as this can vary considerably.
If the printer gives a message that the toner is low, you can get several more prints by shaking the toner in a horizontal position and placing it back into the printer.

You need to open the front door and grab the toner/drum unit and pull as hard as you need to. once the assy. comes out you press the blue button on the left side and the toner cartridge will separate from the drum unit. install the new toner or remove the paper jam as required. call if you need more info. 805-520-3003 steven

How do i add toner to my hl 2030 brother printer ?


You don't "add" toner, you have to replace the cartridge. You can see it by clicking on this link:

HL-2030 Toner

You can refer to the User Guide for instructions. here is a link to it:

HL-2000 Series User Guide

Replacing the toner is covered in Chapter 5.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Brother HL-2030 continually prints test pages

disconnect the printer from your pc and clear out all print jobs... leave it on and let it sit for a day... if no test page prints then the problem is your pc... if it starts printing like crazy then reset it via page 54 of the user guide if it still prints like crazy with the network cable or usb cable disconnected then you need to call brothers tech support but more than likely it shouldn't do anything... if this is the case... the problem is your pc... or your server...

Need instructions on how to fit toner

if you are refilling the cartridge for the tn350 or the tn2000 - its very easy. Remove the cap from one side - empty then refill. The opposite end has a reset gear that you need to rest. if you have the starter cartridge you will need to buy the gear...

Paper light flashes red...

I found just doing this one simple thing sorted the problem.

First take off the front cover. Pull the tabs on the side. Pull out the big toner and cartridge. Do you see the blue tab on the top shaped like an arrow/triangle? Slide the tab from right to left - reinsert toner close door.
Hope it works for you

Toner Light

Its nearly what the last post states,
I have had brother help desk on the phone recently due to this problem. If you get a toner cartridge that has no numbers on it, ( brother orginal parts have huge numbers stamped on the case) then the cartridge needs resetting, this is done by simply pushing the white lever on left handside about 40 degrees forwards, its stiff so give it a proper hard shove. No srews etc to undo.
Hey presto your light will go out.

The solution that you tried, does that mean that you purchased a new brother toner and fitted to machine?
