Brother not printing


Hi John, the machine keeps asking you to clean the corona wire because on start up or especialy when the machine readies it's self to start printing, it passes a voltage through the corona wire which helps the drum erase the charge on the organic photo compound the drum is covered in.
If the machine sees any problem with the transfer of this voltage it thinks there is a problem.
The corona wire can be cleaned by sliding the blue tab on the top of the drum from right to left a few times.
You should check to see if this wire is broken ..it a very thin wire about the thickness of a human hair, if the wire is not broken then try cleaning the thin metal grid below the corona wire with a cotton bud , being carefull not to break the wire.
If this doesnt work then it sounds like the high voltage connection on the drum is faulty, and you will need to purchase a new drum ( or take it back to the supplier and say it is faulty and you want it replaced).
You ould also clean the surface of the drum itself carefully with a soft DRY clean cloth.
The only other cause is the high voltage supply pcb is faulty. Which if the machine is out of warranty is prohibitavely expensive to repair.

Hope this helps

Copies are black and where is this corona wire? I


Your cartridge has two sections, the drum and the toner section. The corona wire is on the drum section. There should be a blue tab on the top left hand side of your drum unit. Slide this tab across the cartridge one or two times, returning the tab to its original position. There should be an arrow on the blue tab that will match up with an arrow on the drum unit when the tab is in its resting position. Performing this action cleans the corona wire inside the cartridge. If this doesn't fix it you may need to purchase a new drum unit.

Just replaced toner - now it prints so dark I can't even read the fax


Most common cause is a dirty corona wire and or drum. If after cleaning the corona wire and drum the copies are still mostly black and smeared, the drum may be broken.

Alarm is flashing, LED reads install Cartridge but the cartridge is installed. Any suggestions? Yes it is the right cartridge and I have tried replacing it with a new one, same error message


You've most likely got a dirty corona wire and/or drum. The wire should be cleaned each time you change the toner as well as if/when the print quality starts to degrage. Remove the toner cartridge, give the corona wire several swipes with the tab and make sure the tab is put back securely in place. If cleaning the wire doesn't fix your problem, go ahead and clean the drum. Either one of these or both should solve your issue. Only other thing that could cause your error would be the toner cartridge is not securely in place. (shouild click in securely). Best of luck.

Check the machine for a **** or dust glass above the drum.
Check and clean coronas, the wires and shells may be dirty reducing charge.
Run a few white copies, to check of the toner / carrier ratio is low.

Hope this is of some help.

CORONA WIRE CLEANING


SWARNAVA has the most common wrong answer to this problem...

I am waiting for a firmware update to fix this issue. The only solution is repeatedly removing the drum/toner, moving the green cleaner back and forth, putting it all back together loosely, putting it in the printer loosely, and closing the door gently. Hold down the blue button until all the lights glow, then release. If you're lucky you only have to repeat this process a dozen times until you trick the sensor into not giving false readings.

Corona wire


I was getting the clean the corona wire problem message even after repeated cleanings.  Before this problem occured the toner light was flashing warning of low toner. When I got the clean the wire pop up the toner light was on all the time indicating the toner was depleated.  So, I thought I would try replacing the toner cartridge and see what happened. I opened the new toner box and noticed on the foil packege specific instructions to clean the corona wire when installing the new toner.  I installed the new toner and cleaned the wire one more time. I then reinstalled the drum and toner assembly into the printer and the clean the corona wire message did not come up again.  The printer now works fine.

I'm sorry to tell you, this is likely a drum issue.

You probably need to have a certified engineer examine the machine.

Have you tried speaking with the local service center to see if they have experienced similar issues? It might be free information.
