How can I replace the corona wire in the drum of brother HL 2140 printer, I've seen it broken, I'd disassemble the assembly and two terminal lugs w/ broken corona wire dislocated to its position.


Hi, I have the same printer as you. My background is in the development, design and manufacturing of printers. while i didn't have the opportunity of designing the toner system, I do know that doing anything with the corna wire requires that you never touch the wire with your bare hands.Replace the corna wire requires special tools to set the tightness keeping clean in the process. Unfortunately by the time you spend to replace the wire, it would be easier to buy a replacement drum. there are some reasonable cost rebuilt drums sub systems. look on ebay to find them.

HL-2140 Clean Corona wire Message won't go away.


Hello,
If you are getting "clean corona wire" on your PC and the toner light on the machine is solid, you need to change your toner cartridge.
This is a bug in the brother software.
Thanks,
Pat

Brother not printing


Hi John, the machine keeps asking you to clean the corona wire because on start up or especialy when the machine readies it's self to start printing, it passes a voltage through the corona wire which helps the drum erase the charge on the organic photo compound the drum is covered in.
If the machine sees any problem with the transfer of this voltage it thinks there is a problem.
The corona wire can be cleaned by sliding the blue tab on the top of the drum from right to left a few times.
You should check to see if this wire is broken ..it a very thin wire about the thickness of a human hair, if the wire is not broken then try cleaning the thin metal grid below the corona wire with a cotton bud , being carefull not to break the wire.
If this doesnt work then it sounds like the high voltage connection on the drum is faulty, and you will need to purchase a new drum ( or take it back to the supplier and say it is faulty and you want it replaced).
You ould also clean the surface of the drum itself carefully with a soft DRY clean cloth.
The only other cause is the high voltage supply pcb is faulty. Which if the machine is out of warranty is prohibitavely expensive to repair.

Hope this helps

Get a clean the corona wire. Have removed the


Try using canned air to blow out that corona area, and then a Q-tip moist with alcohol to gently wipe the corona wire, if all that fails you will need a new drum.
Also press the go button 3 times so you get a printout and check that you are getting a clean the drum error or something else.

Get error light when trying to print labels - HL 2140


The driver should pop up a error message. Possibly is due to clean corona wire. Slide the blue lever several times across (at the drum unit).

Brother HL-2140 Corona Clean Error Won't Go Away!!!


The error message is misleading. The printer wants a new toner cartridge.
