I replaced the toner for the printer and the toner
The toner light came one and I changed the toner cartridge with a new one. I placed it back into the printer and the toner the toner light came back on. I turned off the printer for a few minutes and turned it back on and the toner light came back on again. I changed to another toner cartridge and the light still comes on. Could it be because the cartridges are refurbished?
Re: I replaced the toner for the printer and the toner
No, remanufactured cartridges are just as good, and better for the environment if you get them from a reputable dealer. I buy all my toner cartridges from Qtoner.com and am very happy with them after trying a lot of other knock off non quality refurbished toner cartridges. You just have to find the right vendor.
With brothers, you have to manually tell the printer that you changed it. It tells you how in your owners manual. If you can't find it let me know and I can walk you through it to the best of my ability.

toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the
front of the printer.

A laser printer needs toner to print, when this runs out the printer will print either blank or very faint images. You
need to replace the toner cartridge with a new one or a re-manufactured
toner cartridges. Re-manufactured toner cartridges are cheaper than new
toner cartridges for your model printer.
You can get a few more prints out of your toner cartridge by removing the toner cartridge from the printer and giving it a few horizontal shakes then place it back into the printer.
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.
The toner light being on solid means that the toner cartridge is empty.
You will need to replace it with a new one.
When replacing the cartridge, please remember to seperate the toner and the drum, DO NOT THROW OUT THE DRUM.
If you have already changed the toner cartridge with a new one, then you will want to reset the toner cartridge.
To manually reset the printer, first, remove the toner from the printer and separate it from the drum unit.
With the toner cartridge in hand and the brother writing facing you, look to the left side of the cartridge. You should see an arc shaped opening with a white tab in it.
The tab is set at the right position and must be pushed back to the left side of the opening. To push the tab back, you must turn the grey gear attached to the front roller upwards as you push the tab.
Once the tab has been placed to the left position, the printer will accept it as a new toner cartridge.
I just changed my black toner this past week, and finally figured out why the cartridges get stuck like this.
First, you must eject the toner cartridge on the front-panel menu: Menu->Replace Toner->Eject Toner->Black(K)
It will say "Rotating to Black Toner(K)" and then say "Black Toner(K) Ready to Eject"
Now, open the front panel and you'll see the black toner cartridge in front. You can also open the top panel if you want more light on your work area.
Lift the lock handle on the old toner cartridge to the "unlock" position, and here's the part that the Dell instructions don't have:
There are two channels for the toner cartridges -- one on each side. Run your finger down the channel on the right, and you'll feel a small, spring-loaded catch. This catch often gets sticky and won't release the cartridge without some help. Don't force it, but gently move it towards the back of the printer and it should release.
Now the old cartrdige should slide right out, and you can finish per the instructions that came with the new cartridge.
How to Change a Toner Cartridge
You may need to change a toner cartridge when:
Your printer tells you toner is out (low toner usually means you can print a few hundred more pages without a problem)
The pages coming out of the printer look faded or washed out
The pages have a repeating defect of some kind
Users are able to and expected to be able to change toner in black and white printers. (Color printers are more difficult so if you are unsure of how to change color toner call the helpdesk and we will assist you.)
First thing you will need to know is what model of printer you have.
This will be written on the printer somewhere, there are 2 names that you will likely find on the printer, one is our name for the printer (i.e. ucrit01) the other is the model name (i.e. HP LaserJet 5m). You will need the model name.
Take the model name to the central stores.
They will be able to tell you which replacement toner cartridge to use. (If there is a problem identifying which replacement to use call the helpdesk.)
Give them your cost center number and they will let you have the replacement toner cartridge that you need.
Take the new cartridge back to the printer and remove the new toner cartridge from the box.
Power the printer off.
Open the top cover on the printer.
Remove the old toner by pulling up and away from the printer. (It should come out with only a small amount of force)
Remove the new toner from its bag, remove the rip strip from the cartridge. This is a small tab on the side of the cartridge that is attached to a plastic film strip. If you do not remove this strip the printer will only print blank sheets. Take care to avoid getting the toner on you when you rip off the strip. Spilled toner is best cleaned up with a dry cloth. If you spill any toner on yourself you can wash it off with COLD water (no hot water as it can cause the toner to set).
Place the new cartridge into the printer the same way the old unit came out (there may be arrows or other cues to help you align the cartridge correctly.)
It should slide in with minimal force. If it does not slide in easily, make sure you have the cartridge aligned correctly and that you are using the correct cartridge (i.e. 4000 series cartridge is not compatible with the 4100 series printer, you must use 4100 series cartridge).
Once you have the cartridge seated all they way in place, close the top cover.
Power the printer back on.
Print a few test pages
If the printouts look good: You are just about done, package the old toner cartridge in the box the new toner came in and give it to the mailroom. We get a credit for the old cartridges. Now you are finished.
If there is a problem with the test pages: Our cartridges are refurbished and sometimes the cartridges can be defective. If you see streaks, repeated defects, faded out pages or other defects that did not exist before you changed, toner it may be because of a problem with the toner cartridge.
Try getting another new cartridge, installing that cartridge, and printing some test pages. If the printouts are clean, then the first cartridge is a defect, return it to the mailroom for credit.
If both new toner cartridges seem to have problems call the computer helpdesk. There is likely something wrong with the printer.
Please Note: Toner cartridges are light sensitive if you are going to leave them out of the box or printer for more than a few minutes please cover them to prevent damage
hope this helps u
please rate me........................
thank u for using fixya
The J1 error means the toner cartridge needs to be replaced. Since you just replaced the cartridge, you should remove the cartridge and repeat the following steps..
Shake the new toner cartridge
horizontally four or five times and then
remove the cover.
Slide the new toner cartridge in until it
locks in place.
It sounds like the cover may still be on the cartridge.
