How to change laser printhead


Laser printers do not use a printhead.
When the toner runs out you need to get a new toner cartridge which includes the print drum.
You lift up the cover to reveal the toner cartridge, grab the cartridge and pull it out towards the front of the printer.
Reverse this procedure to insert the new toner cartridge.

How to change toner cartridge TN330


Hello

Once you have the correct Brother Toner for your printer model, power your printer OFF and open the cartridge box.

Next, you need to open the top cover of the printer. You should do this carefully to prevent damage to the interior or exterior of the printer.

Once the printer top cover is removed, you want to extract the empty Brother Toner cartridge from the printer by pulling upward and away from the machine. You should be able to do this without a great amount of force.

After you've taken the Brother Toner cartridge from the printer, you want to prepare the new cartridge for insertion. To do this, you need to remove it from the plastic bag it is contained in. Next, you need to remove the rip strip from the cartridge. The rip strip is attached to a plastic film strip. Removing the rip strip is important because if you don't your printer will only produce blank sheets. Take care when ripping the strip off, as you may get Brother Toner on your clothes which can stain. If you end up spilling toner on yourself you can wash it off with cold water.

Next, you want to place the new cartridge in the printer the same way the old Brother Toner cartridge came out. There will most likely be arrows on the package to guide you in the placement that will help you make sure you're putting it in correctly. Much like removing the used Brother Toner cartridge, it should slide in with minimal force. If it doesn't slide in easily you should make sure that the Brother Toner cartridge is the correct cartridge for your model printer and then make sure that it is aligned correctly.

Once you have the cartridge in the printer properly, put the printer lid back on.

Now you are going to print a few test pages to make sure that everything is working the way it should. If the printouts look good: You are done. Package the old toner cartridge in the box the new toner came in and recycle it. If the printouts look bad: Sometimes cartridges can be defective. If there were problems with your test pages, you may need to try the process again with another toner cartridge.

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer


How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360)
* Paper towel or scrap paper



Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.

Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.



Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.


Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.


Hope it helps...

Brother MFC6800-says change drum soon - is that hard to do?


yes anyone can do this, the drum is the unit the toner fits into, remove as though you were removing the toner cartridge, that the toner all the way out of the drum unit and install the old toner in the new drum and slide back into printer, again the drum unit is just the casing that your toner cartridge slips in and out of

Status red and amber Toner light


This problem you are getting is to replace the toner cartridge. Have you recently changed the drum unit as well. If so exchange it back to the other one.

After installing new toner or full toner cartridge and removing the yellow plastic cover press the go button this should start the printer on a cycle and add the toner. If this doesn't work then the toner sensor has malfunctioned and will need replacing. This will in turn out way the cost of a new machine.

Hope this helps and not too late for you.

Thanks Jason

stars-5-0._v47081849_.gif Masking Tape Gives TN-350 Toner a Second Life, August 25, 2008 By C. MACPHAIL "cmacphail3"drop-down-icon-small-empty-arrow._v13355991_.gif
After the "Toner Life End" message appears, it refuses to printeven one more copy. Offensive...until you show it who's in charge.

Remove the cartridge and find 2 clear plastic port holes, one oneach side. The printer shines a light through these to decide when toshut you off. But it's too sudden and too early.

Cover one or both windows with a small piece of masking tape. I get about 3400 copies per cartridge instead of 2400.
