SOURCE: BROTHER Hl 2040 PRINTER WON'T PRING

I got exactly the same problem and the "reset" didn't do anything. I fixed it by putting a piece of duck tape on magic eye on the cartridge.
Fallow those step to do the same thing as me:

  1. Open the front panel.
  2. Remove the toner and the drum
  3. Remove the toner FROM the drum
  4. On each side of the toner, there should be a little glass. Put the piece of duck tape on one of them. I put mine on the right side.
  5. Put everything back in.
  6. Turn on your printer if it's not already.
  7. Now, the low toner light should be gone and the green light should be on.
Now, you can really empty your cartridge.

SOURCE: Brother 2140 toner light on, won't even try to print.

To get every bit of toner powder out of the cartridge, first remove the toner unit from the drum assembly. Second, find the little circular window on the right-side of the toner cartridge. Third, place a piece of black electrical tape over the clear window, cannot be clear tape. Fourth, re-install the toner cartridge into the drum assembly. Last, put the complete unit back into your printer. This worked for me.

Brother 9460 reset toner


Like most laser printers, the toner light comes on early. This gives you time to order new toner. I find it best, since it does not stop the printer from printing, just to have a toner on hand and when your toner is empty replace it. Since this is a mesurement inside the toner cartridge its self, there is no way to reset the warning (other than replace the cartridge).

Solution:

Brother hl2142 printing copies out which look faded


The toner could be low.
When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

I have a Brother MFC-7440N machine. On 7/22/10


The toner cartridges have a small port on the side that the printer uses to check the toner level. Our 7440N tells us it will soon need a new toner cartridge and will then print another 400 copies. Search YouTube for Brother Toner Cartridge and it will show you how to modify the cartridge by covering up the portholes with tape. Since there is obviously some kind of sensor, you might need to get a can of air and clean out any extra toner. Lastly, the Brother cartridges have "reset gears" which are replaced when the cartridges are refilled. You might have a cartridge which the gears were not replaced on.

Low print quality


It depends upon the number of prints you have done since Feb and the toner cartridge capacity. Some toner cartridges have 2500 page capacity others have 5000 pages or more.
If you think you have not exceeded or reached the cartridge capacity, take it out of the printer and give it a shake in a horizontal position to distribute the toner evenly across the drum and place it back in the printer. This also works when the toner is nearly empty.

Brother HL-2040 toner led stays on, won't print


There is a window on each end of the toner cartridge that you can cover with electrical tape and keep printing, it shines a light thru and when the toner is too low it says it's empty. The weight can be misleading.
