Drum error

Hi, the drum is the part where you insert the new cartridge toner, some times when you replace the toner need to clean the small filament in the drum unit, is very simple, ther is a blue part, slide 2 o 3 times and return to his original position marked with a arrow, maybe this solve your problem,9436fabb-a042-4f75-962b-c59ad843e6bb.jpg

Brother dcp9040 cn . you had advised me before. replaced toner cartridges. continue to say load cyan toner. had reordered a new cyan toner and replaced it. removed drum . it still contiue to say load cyan...

Try reseting the toner cartridge via the operations panel.

Do this by opening front door and pressing clear/back button, a menu will appear, we want to select C-TNR-S or C-TNR-H depending on if you are using Cyan/TonerStandard or Cyan/Toner/High Capacity, so use arrows to go to correct one then press ok to select it, then a new menu appears, we want to select 1 and ok to reset, then it should just go back to cover open.

That should do it, have you tried it? as I think I told you the same before, I also need to know if you are using original brother branded toners or refill/remanufactured ones. You can reach me via this question

Replaced toner cartridges magenta, yellow cyan printer display now says replace cyan cart. i have reloaded and even put in the old one i even replaced the drum with the pevios one. same message

Hi Camru,

Can you tell me the exact model of Cyan toner you are using as there are two for this model a high and a low capacity one, and I also would like to know if you are using original brother branded toners or refill or aftermarket/non brother/"for use in toners". If you are using after market toners then the toner itself is probally faulty, these machines dont just sence new powder they look for a new chip to tell machine it has had its toner replaced, then the chip is blown so it cant reset the machine again, refillers have to put in a new chiop and powder if the chip they use fails then it doesn'r reset the machine, exactly like your problem.

If your are using brother branded original not refilled toners then we could have other issues so please then try the following. Please ensure the contacts on the drum and coresponding ones on the front door are clean. Gently tiny wipe metal wire contacts with a lint free cloth or a cotton bud with metho/alcohol, dont bend them they are delicate, see pic at end for location

Please also try to reset the toner manually, do this by openning front door and pressing clear/back button, a menu will appear, we want to select C-TNR-S or C-TNR-H depending on if you are using Cyan/TonerStandard or Cyan/Toner/High Capacity, so use arrows to go to correct one then press ok to select it, then a new menu appears, we want to select 1 asnd ok to reset, then it should just go back to cover open.

Also you could let me know what code comes up if you press menu * 2 8 6 and 4 real quick!!, if you do fast enough its tricky but then you should see maintence in display and it will beep, then select 82, and it will show eroor ?? let me know the code...also try to do a 80 it will print out a code sheet that I would normally read to identify problem, and finally in maintence mode select 99 to perform reset, you machine should go back to normal and out of service mode.

Hope this helps, or if required give me more detailed info and we will dig deeper.

My Brother HL2140 printer was running fine and all of a sudden the toner light is on and it stopped printing. Just yesterday when i printed out the status for the drum and toner it showed more than 80 %...

636 is a lot of pages and depends on the toner coverage you may need to replace the toner.. 80 - 75% (is that used is remaining ??) any way check your waste toner basket first (see you manual for instructions) chances are its filled and needs cleaning or replacing (see your manual for instructions) If its fine then change your toner .. If you have the demo toner (toner shipped with machine) these contain less toner than a new cartridge and will finish faster ...

Please describe your Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer problem

Yep this will always happen if your just using a replacement toner. They will be depleted faster compared to the original Brother toner.

Make sure you replace your toner with the original Brother toner.

Replaced toner with 3rd party toner and get error mewssage

most manufacturers these days have incorporated a chip on the replacement consumables to determine if it is a genuine xxx corporation cartridge...using 3rd party voids your warranty,resetting may not be possible under these conditions. check with manufacturer that sold replacement, I'm sure they have seen it before

MFC 8460N giving Toner Life End message

I just solved my own problem. Try it for yours. I had been using several compatible toners for the MFC-8460N with no problems until today, as I posted earlier. On a hunch, I went to the local office supply store and purchased one original Brothers TN550 toner and put it into the printer and closed the cover. Everything clicked. Toner End Life message gone. I then took that Brother toner out and put the compatible one back in and still everything was fine. Am keeping the original Brother toner as a "kickstarter" if it happens again.

Brother 5140 faint print

I had the same problem and I just fixed it.

It turns out that the toner cartridge I was using was not an authentic brother cartridge. It was an Office Max knockoff.

I replaced the knockoff with an original BROTHER toner cartridge and BAM! Right back in business.

What tricked us for so long was that the knockoff worked for two weeks before it conked out, so while we were looking for the problem, we kept saying to ourselves, "No, it COULDN'T be the toner cartridge. It's practically brand new."

Hope this helps.
