Question about Brother MFC-9840CDW Laser Printer

Open Question

Printer is printing way too light and not enough red.

I am using a brother mfc-9840cdw and everything we print comes out low on red and in a pastel color rather than the true color represented in the file. We have tried resetting to the default settings, replacing all the toner, cleaning the scanner windows, and changing other settings previous to returning to the default settings. We are at a loss and any help you could provide would be much appreciated.

If this only happens when you are copying.

1. Your scanner glass is dirty. Open the lid, use windex to clean the flatbed. Look on the left side. You should see a strip of glass, with the scanner sitting under it. This strip is used when the document feed is being used. Make sure it is clean. Most common problem is getting a little whiteout or the sticky residue from scotch tape on this glass, which causes lines down your copies.

Clean it with alcohol which will dissolve the sticky stuff and the whiteout.

If this does not solve the problem, the CCD scanner in your machine might be going bad.

SOURCE: Brother 2140 toner light on, won't even try to print.

To get every bit of toner powder out of the cartridge, first remove the toner unit from the drum assembly. Second, find the little circular window on the right-side of the toner cartridge. Third, place a piece of black electrical tape over the clear window, cannot be clear tape. Fourth, re-install the toner cartridge into the drum assembly. Last, put the complete unit back into your printer. This worked for me.

SOURCE: Brother MFC 5840 won't print red. ink is full. printer head clean

If the regular cleaning does not work, you can try the power purge. Perform it by doing the following:

  • Press Menu, 2, 8, 6, 4 quickly (within about 1-2 seconds from the menu-press, all five buttons should been placed, in order).
  • The display and some buttons should start flashing, and it should say "Maintenance".
  • Press 7, 6.
  • It should say "CLEANING ALL", press right arrow key until you get "CLEANING MAGENTA" or similar.
  • Press 3, it should now change to POWER_P or P_PURGE. Press Mono/Black Start.
  • The display should say "Cleaning", when it's done, it will say Maintenance again.
  • Press 99 and you will leave Maintenance mode, you can now try and see if magenta works again.
If it doesn't work, you'd probably need chemicals to clean the ink tubes. But, this power purge should work.

Duplex printing with card stock paper jams in back on Brother MFC-9840CDW


I would try manually inserting the paper for the back side. Most of the time it's best to wait a few minutes before trying the back side to give it time to cool so it will lie flat.

I have a brother HL-2140/2170W Monochrome Laser Printer and don't know if I can print envelopes from this printer. It doesn't appear to have an envelope feeder.???


It can cause creased envelopes when printing on envelopes......but if you consult the manual there are fuser tension adjustment switches that solves that for perfect envelope printing (Settings, A, B and Envelope).

If your printing from windows you might need to change the tray settings in the driver.

Getting horizontal red streaks across printed page


The drum roller is damaged. You must be careful and spin the cylinder. do not touch the roller. You probably have a line in the roller that causes this issue. Each time i have seen this problem, this was the cause.
