I have a brother hl3040cn printer.I print property brochures and they are very dark.They were ok.any ideas

I would first check to see if you are using New / O.E.M. Toner and drums. Most compatible / remanufactured Toner and Drums work okay , they don't do well on Brochures or rich Graphic prints. If you hav'nt installed any supplies recently, the Drum Units is where I would start. Not usually a Cleaning issue.

Brother hl3040cn. I have replaced black cartridge it now says other 3 need replacing. Was printing ok before black ran out; not printed colour for long time. thanks

This printer tells you to replace the toner when there is still plenty left. You can override this as follows:-
1. Open the top cover
2. Press "Secure print" and "Cancel" together
3. This brings up the cartridge menu. Press "OK" twice for each entry, then scroll down to the next one. There are two entries for each colour, dunno why.
4. When you've done all 8 entries shut the lid and print.
This may need to be redone every few months.
