Question about Brother HL3070CW Compact Digital Color with Wireless Networking Laser Printer

1 Answer

I'm installing my new Brother HL3070CW color Laser printer. I am using a Mac, the box and literature for this printer state it works with Mac. Going through the wireless Device Setup Wizard gives me an error "NO Devices found on your wireless network" I have the new printer hooked up to my AirPort and have tried refreshing several times, I've used 2 different Macs on my network and nothing helps. The only other variable is my network cable, but this is a new cable it hasn't been used for anything, it just sits with my Airport for times like this.

SOURCE: Does HP laserjet 1020 work with Airport Express

I removed any printer configurations for this printer in both my pc and my mac (both usb and wireless). Then I restarted both computers and added the printer via usb again to each. At that point I went back to the extreme configuration and under the printers tab it was finally seeing Hewlett Packard Laserjet 1020. After that, adding via Bonjour went smoothly on both platforms.

I have a Brother HL-5140 Laser Printer and the Orange light comes on and when I go to the print queue to print something, it states the printer is offline, how can I get it back online?

Try installing the software package that comes with the printer. The software usually loads a helper app that pings the printer and keeps it online.

I have a vertical strip about 3/16" wide about 3/4" from the left side of the page that will not print in the black only. I have replaced the black toner and black drum unit, and it is still there.

The LED Assembly LU5831001 is probably bad. This machine has 4 LED assemblies mounted in the top cover. It doesn't use a laser scanner.

To troubleshoot, you can clean them, then swap them between colors before you buy it.

Print unable 1A indicates condensation forming inside the machine. If the condensate drops on to the main circuit board (positioned just under a metal bar that acts as a moisture condenser) you have a terminal fault. If your machine is still reporting a 1A error after two weeks in relatively dry conditions, it is probably all over bar the burial ceremony.

Printer telling me to replace drum. I replaced all the colors and still not working

you need to reset the counters so the printer knows there is a new drum.
to do so try this:
Turn the printer power switch back on.
Press + or - to choose "Machine Info.".
Press OK to proceed to the next menu level, and then press + or - to choose "Reset Parts Life". Press OK, and then press + to choose "Drum Unit".
Press OK, and then press + or - to choose the color that you replaced.
Press OK two times.

I am getting a replace magenta cartridge message but have only printed about 300 pgs most of which were only b&w

The full replaement color cartridges for this printer only print 1,400 pages @ 5% coverage. If you are speaking of the starter cartridges (the ones that came with the printer) they only have about half of that. If you print with this machine in full color mode, which is the default, it counts developer revolutions even if you only print b&w. If this is a purchased toner cartridge you are speaking of, you can reset the flag gear on the side of the cartridge in order to get more prints out of it, put the print quality may not be good. To extend the life of the color cartridges when you are only printing b&w, set the printer properties to print in "graysale" or "monochrome" under preferences. When you try to print a document, in the dialog box next to the printer name click preferences. Look on all of the tabs for one of the selections I mentioned and select it. This is an expensive cost per page printer, and you may not want to use it for all of your prints. It may be adviseable to get a cheap monochrome only printer for your b&w needs and only use this brother machine for your full color prints.
