You have a one year warranty with Brother if you need repair. You might shake the toner, or put a small electrical tape over the little round windows on the toner cart. to use the rest of the toner, and press the go button 3 times to print the report that tells you how many prints you've made, you could just be out of toner again...

My brother hl 2040 the tone light is on and dont allow me to print


It indicates your toner is finished and you need to replace with a new toner. Take out the toner & drum unit, on the left there is a opening which allows a beam to pass through to check toner level. There might be some toner left, for emergency printing block the opening with a piece of small paper and the light should go off for temporarily printing.

I have 3 Brother HL-20040 laser printers but 2 of the 3 show the toner (yellow) light with good cartridges. Is this a common problem? Is the sensor bad? Do I junk it for another which I can purchase new...


Could be a bad sensor., but if you put a small piece of electrical tape over the windows on each side of the toner cartridge, ti will think there's toner and the light should be out. When prints come out blank, it's time for more toner...

I have a brother 2140, I have replaced the toner car, the yellow light still comes on and the printer will not print


Remove toner/drum unit, remove toner by itself...remember to shake the toner right-left to loosen the toner before putting back in the unit. To reset the printer before you replace the toner/drum, and with the front door still open, hold the GO-Control button down until all lights are on, then let go, reinstall the toner/drum, & close up front door. Power off & back on and you should be set.

Brother HL-2040 toner led stays on, won't print


There is a window on each end of the toner cartridge that you can cover with electrical tape and keep printing, it shines a light thru and when the toner is too low it says it's empty. The weight can be misleading.

Please describe your Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer problem


Yep this will always happen if your just using a replacement toner. They will be depleted faster compared to the original Brother toner.

Make sure you replace your toner with the original Brother toner.

New toner cartridge but prints way too light


where they refilled or third party cartridges? If so try a name brand. It could be the high voltage board or the laser aperture
could be dirty.

Brother HL-2040 Printing With Strange Gray Marks on Back of Paper


Sounds to me like the toner - that is the toner cartridge has the wrong toner in it. The drum should be OK - clean it up first and then use a genuine toner cartridge OR you can buy our refill kit on eBay - search for Brother HL2040 - michellem6123
