Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I have just replaced the black toner as requested by my HL 4050CDN laser printer with a genuine brother replacement and now it's flashing on the LCD that I need to replace the 3 colours also. It's not possible that I've used the colours so do I have to replace them anyway as I've replaced the black? If so, why didn't it tell me to replace all 4 cartridges originally. Lynda

    Thanks but I've tried that and it still wants me to replace the colours. Also it won't let me print in mono either so I'm really annoyed at the mo.

Just open the cartridge holders for the colours and even pull them out a little. Machine will think you replaced them.
Normally when you replace black it will ask if you did replace the colors. If you say no it will calculate the amount of toner in there still.
**** that is for next time. Now just open the cartridge holders for the collors and let the machine think you replaced them.

Product is Brother HL-4150CDN laser printer. The LCD display is saying Replace Toner (Back) I have 2 black toner carts available. One that I slightly used previously before swapping it out with a new one...


Had this same problem on the same printer. Here is the solution.
Open the front cover of the printer and press "Cancel" & "Secure". This will access a secret menu that will let you reset the toner counter. There are 12 settings in all (3 per color).
Two thumbs up going out to TonerHacker007 on the fixyourownprinter.com forums for this one.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.
