Hello,

The problem you are having a most likely caused by a dirty corona wire. We have a page on our web site at: http://www.ccl-la.com/Brother_corona.htm that shows how to clean the corona wire and get back to printing.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

Brother 5370 toner light stays on continuously


if you take the toner cart out and look on the right hand side of it, you will notice a little round window, this window lines up with a sensor inside the printer which looks to this window to reflect back off the toner inside (toner still available)
When the toner gets low enough the sensor does not get a signal back and reports that its out of toner hence the red light.....here's the trick.... if you put a small piece of BLACK tape over the window your printer will continue to print until it completely runs out of toner (several 100 more pages)

Toner light is on and it wont print


Hello,

The toner light being on solid means that the toner cartridge is empty.
You will need to replace it with a new one.
When replacing the cartridge, please remember to seperate the toner and the drum, DO NOT THROW OUT THE DRUM.

If you have already changed the toner cartridge with a new one, then you will want to reset the toner cartridge.

To manually reset the printer, first, remove the toner from the printer and separate it from the drum unit.

With the toner cartridge in hand and the brother writing facing you, look to the left side of the cartridge. You should see an arc shaped opening with a white tab in it.

The tab is set at the right position and must be pushed back to the left side of the opening.
To push the tab back, you must turn the grey gear attached to the front roller upwards as you push the tab.

Once the tab has been placed to the left position, the printer will accept it as a new toner cartridge.

Thanks,

Pat

Toner light is flashing and printing has stopped


Hello ,

This problem is a common issue and easily fixed.
When putting in a new toner cartridge, the printer usually automatically resets the toner count.
In a situation like this, the printer did not automatically do the reset and so we must manually reset the printer.

To manually reset the printer, first, remove the toner from the printer and separate it from the drum unit.

With the toner cartridge in hand and the brother writing facing you, look to the left side of the cartridge. You should see an arc shaped opening with a white tab in it.

The tab is set at the right position and must be pushed back to the left side of the opening.
To push the tab back, you must turn the grey gear attached to the front roller upwards as you push the tab.

Once the tab has been placed to the left position, the printer will accept it as a new toner cartridge.

I have a Brother mfc-8440. It prints light on the


Usually when it prints light on one side and normal on the other, it's either the drum (which you replaced) a dirty corona wire, or the toner is unevenly distributed in the cartridge. You can removed the toner cartridge and gently drop it from a distance of about 4-5 inches to dislodge any caked up toner. This is normal in a cartridge that has sat a while or if the fax machine is in a room with high humidity.
Hope this answers your question and best of luck.

Brother HL 2070N Drum Unit changed but printing with dots on the left hand side


If toner leaked into the machine and got on the fuser that could cause this, but the dots would go away after a few prints. Try another drum unit.

Sometimes when toner starts to get low prints will faed or not print on sides. Make sure the printer is on a very level surface. Remove the toners and shake lightly left to right and reinstall.
