How new is your cartridge? Usually when the cartridge is getting close to empty the print comes out light. You can try shaking the cartridge gently from side to side to distribute the toner throughout the cartridge.

If you are in need of getting a new cartridge, try a compatible. I have had great luck with them, and the save you lots of $ and work just as good.

I purchase all my toner and compatible cartridges from:

I hope this helps :)

Brother HL-2140 does not print even if toner is full


In the Brother HL-2140 printer, it shows the Toner led light is on. Even if there is plenty of toner on the cartridge. It just wont print anything after initiating a print job since the toner light is on.Here is a trick on what you need to do:

1. Turn off the Brother HL-2140 printer.
2. Open the front access door to take out the toner from the carriage.
3. Notice that on both sides of the toner, you will see a small hole which is most probably the sensor.
4. What you do is to cover the sensor holes with masking tape and color the tape with black marker. Or, you can also use an electrical tape to cover them.
5. Shake the toner so that the ink inside will redistribute evenly.
6. Return the toner to the carriage and try to initiate a print again.

That's it!

I HAVE A BROTHER 2140 LASER PRINTER AND THE TONER LIGHT CAME ON TODAY. IT WONT PRINT


If the toner light came on you need to replace the toner cartridge with a new one. You can try to take out your current toner and shake it a bit and put it back into the printer. That may get you some more time before the light comes on again but I don't suggest doing this. Bottom line is that you need to buy new toner.

Tonner and cartridge clogged wont print dark


Why do you say it's the toner? Likely the PCU (photoconductor) needs replacing, or laser optics, etc.
If it's not a 'blinking toner light' that won't go away, but rather light copies for no apparent reason, then replacing the PCU is the most likely cure.

No error message but copier light doesn't come or number of copies doesn't work


let it run eventually the toner lite will come on, sharp copiers will run an extended period trying to add toner to the developer. developer is 70% iron filings and 30% toner as it uses the toner it cycles more in to stay at the proper level.

Brother HL 5250 red light flashing


I found this solution on the web-- Hope it helps.

The HL-2070N gets stuck in a toner end-of-life error condition. Perform the following to clear :
With paper loaded, new toner in,

Open front door
Turn off printer
While holding down the GO button, turn printer back on
When all four LEDs light up release GO button. All LEDs will turn off
Press the GO button 2 times. The 3 LEDs (toner, drum, paper) will light up solid
Press the GO button 5 times
Paper light will be blinking
At this point the toner end-of-life condition has been reset. Close front door.
BTW, I got this from Brother Support. Also, just a reminder, timing is important here so don't pause between button presses.
