Brother HL-4070 printing out black whole page. Is this drum problem?


Try swapping the black and the magenta (red) cartridge.
This will not damage the printer and you can see if the toner or the drum is defective.

If you get a red page, drum
Black page, toner cartridge

I have the Brother HL-4070CDW and I have a TONER LIFE END message and it will not allow me to print anymore. How can I make my printer keep printing until I see visible quality issues?


With the front access door open, press and hold the cancel button. While still holding the down the cancel button, press and hold the reprint button... you should now see the toner reset menu. Why we can't get there from the machine info/reset menu to begin with, well, guess Brother wants to sell you more toner. ;^)

Will not make connection to wireless brother hl 4070 cdw printer


You might not be on the wireless network or the printer might not be on the wireless netowrk. try connecting to it via a usb cable and see if that works. if so try reconfiguring the settings on it for your wireless network than try again. Also if you have the disk the printer came with you can uninstall the printer put back in the disk, reinstall the printer and it might do all that I am saying automatically.

MY brother HL-5140 quits printing,and also has a black vertical line down the page before it quits. After a while, say 30 to 45 minutes, it will start printing again. But there are black smudges on the...


Sounds like a fusing error ... If your able to wipe the toner off the page its a fuser unit problem (replace fuser unit) If toner is sticking to paper but the print quality is poor , replace the drum unit  (PCU)  good luck

Printing black smudges across the page at 10 cm intervals


Most likely cause by the drum unit. Replace drum or upgrade printer.

Smudges on items printed


Take the cartridge out and shake it, when you do this thought make sure you cover where the toner goes out of or you'll make a mess! I had this same issue with my laser printer and this resolved it.

If that doesn't fixya then you may want to clean the rollers you can buy sheets to run in them.

Duplex Printer prints one side upside down


If it's the same as the Brother 4070 you go into printer proerties (press properties next to printer selector after sending a document to print).  Choose the advanced tab, on this tab near the top are five buttons with icons on, the second one shows two pages with A and B on, press this to access the duplex and binding options.  In there change from "flip on top edge" to "flip on left edge"
