I think your issue may be this "toner cleaning roller" you mentioned. If you mean the black roller that sits right below the toner cartridge then that roller is called the transfer roller. It transfers the toner from the drum in the toner cartridge to the paper as it passes between the transfer roller and the drum. If you took this roller out and had problems re-installing it then I am sure that is where the problem lies. If this roller is not installed correctly or as you mentioned you "think something broke off it" then you are not getting any toner transfer from the cartridge to the paper thus your blank prints. I would double check this before proceding any further.
Good Luck

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

How i solve the blank print on a3 paper on autocad


It seems you are using a print server to connect the printer 1280 to your LAN. Uninstall the printer software and printer server driver. Connect the print server to the network and first re-install the print server driver. Then connect the printer to the print server and install the printer software. Refer user manual for assistance. Bot the print server and printer software should be compatible with your operating system.

Works perfectly but will not print at all. Copies fine.


Hello Michelle,

The fact the pages are only coming out blank when you print from the computer points to either the driver or the cable connection.

We’ll start by addressing the drivers.
Let’s remove the printer first.

  1. Click on the apple icon in the top left.
  2. Select “system preferences”
  3. Select “print and fax”
  4. Highlight the MFC-7420 and press the “-“ icon.

Now we need to remove the driver package.

  1. Open your Macintosh HD (in the finder)
  2. Go to Libraryè printer
  3. Drag the brother folder into the trash bin.
  4. Empty the trash bin
    NOTE: you may need to restart your computer before you can empty the trash bin
  5. Restart your computer after the trash bin has been emptied
    NOTE: You have to restart even if you had to restart once before.

Now you will want to install new fresh drivers.
Please choose the link for your OS

Mac 10.6 (snow leopard)
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/firmware_hardware/brotherprinterdriversformacosxv106.html

Mac 10.5 (Leopard)
http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/apple/firmware_hardware/brotherprinterdriver11.html

For versions of Mac 10.4 or earlier, you do not need these drivers, they will be installed automatically.

Now you need to install the brother drivers for printing.
Use this link, choose your version of Mac then click on “search”
On the next page, you want to use the CUPS driver download.

Please come back and vote or leave some feedback, it will let me know whether it helped so I can improve and it will encourage me to keep on helping.

Thanks,

Pat

Wingdings prints on Brother HL2170W


When printing using Terminal Server, the print driver needs to be installed on the server itself. If you have a printer that doesn't have the driver installed on the server, it will either not print at all or it will use the "fallback driver", which is something set by the person who administers the server. Thus, it may be trying to use an HP driver to print to a Brother printer, which won't work. Ask the administrator to install the Brother driver on the server and it should work at that point.

Configuring a Mac Book Pro laptop with a DP 300U Print Server


I connected my HP5MP to the DP-300U LPT1 port.
I configured my port on the DLink Configuration tab, giving it a name "hp5"
...The default login is at http://192.168.0.10/ user:admin pass:(there is no pass by default)

On my Mac, I go to System Preferences > Print & Fax
Click the + to add a new printer
Select the IP option
Choose the Protocol: Line Printer Daemon - LPD
Type in the Address: 192.168.0.10
Type in the Queue: hp5
Print Using: Generic PostScript Printer or better yet, 'Select a driver to use...'
and find the driver for your HP LaserJet 5MP.
Save it. Works like magic. ;-)

If you change the IP address or password on the DLink, just CYA and write it all down on a sticky note then tape the note under the DLink chassis. There's no reset button on the thing, and if you're o a Mac, you won't necessarily have access to the Windows utility to jack with the DP-300U. So, write it down, kidd-o!

Not working on window 2003 server as a network printer


I have had a similar issue with both laserjet 3005N and 1320N machines setup as network printers on a windows 2003 print server. Both machines install correctly and print test pages but once you push to much of a print job to it (in my case it was a 12mb pdf file) the printer stops printing and never prints again for some reason. After a quick reboot a test page will print but what gives?? Buffer issues? Not enough ram? None of this makes sense since the printer displays nothing and just stops printNo test pages or anything. I tried re-installing it and rebooting it. Nothing.

Printing from Mac os X 10.4.10


Here was the way I got it to work on my Mac: Set up the printer with a static IP address. Then add it as a LPD (Line Printer Daemon) printer. Specify L2 as the queue for a USB printer. (L1 is the parallel port).

(This took me a while to figure out - I couldn't get IPP or AppleTalk to work properly).
