Printing dots on Brother HL 4040CN

My printer is printing tiny dots about 3" apart vertically on the left side of the paper. They are about 1/2" or so from the left margin. Printer only 2 months old. Called tech support, cleaned everything they suggested. What now?

    Same thing: dots on the left side of the paper. Even on labels, ruining every other one. This printer is only several months old, too. What gives?

    Mine does the same thing. Did it straight out of the box. Cannot find a solution.

My Brother HL 4040cn showes a Jam MP Tray. There are no papers jambed but it will not reset.


Hi James,
Remove the paper from the MP tray.
Remove any jammed paper from in and around the MP tray.
Fan the paper stack, and then put it back in the MP tray.
When loading paper in the MP tray, make sure that the paper stays under the maximum paper height guides (1) on both sides of the tray.
Press Black (Mono) Start or Color (Colour) Start to resume printing.

Brother HL-4040CN is printing a magenta line on the right edge of the paper - can't find any reference to this in the manual - suspect it might need a new drum?


This is because you have left the corona cleaning wire pushed to the right hand side. Slide it back to its proper position (on the left) and you should be good to go.

Can someone please help me i have just printed off 400 prints with my brother hl 4040CN laser printerits brand new and its now saying my cyan toner has ran out this is impossible i am right in the middle...


Your toner usage will depend upon how much of each color toner is used on each page. (To conserve colors when printing in Black and White only, specify monochrome in your printer setup) <div>I had similar problems when printing publicity flyers. The toner cartridges claim to be good for about 2000 prints each, but I was lucky to get 3 or 400 pages when printing blocks of color. The TN115 cartridges hold significantly more toner, and the cartridges that come with the printer are TINY.</div>

My brother hl 4040cn is printing fine, except there is a blank vertical line in the middle of the page. what is this?


Usually just toner dust on the laser lens, you remove the toner and drum and look on top inside for a window about 1/2 inch wide. You wipe that window with a dry cloth, and also check for paper scraps inside or on the drum assembly.

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.

Printing envelopes on HL4040CN


I just bought a HL-4040CN and all my envelopes wrinkled, regardless of the size, paper thickness or software settings (thin envelope, thick envelope, etc.). Here's how I solved the problem....Open the rear panel and you'll notice a small gray lever on each side, which is probably pointing to "A" on the scale (A, B, Envelope). Move both levers to "Envelope" and close the back panel. The troubleshooting manual says the levers should be moved back to "A" after printing the envelopes, but I left them in the Envelope position and can't see any difference when printing regular or test pages or envelopes, except the envelopes are no longer wrinkled. I called Brother and asked them if there was any reason why the levers can't stay in the Envelope position, and they told me they could be left there if it wasn't negatively affecting other documents. Now, I have a great printer that prints everything without any problems. Hope this helps.
