Here is how to clear some erroneous error codes from brokenfax.com:
RAM clear (most models)
Quickly press function * 2 8 6 4
Display should read maintenance
Press 0 1 for a full ram clear, or 9 1 to retain user data
Display should read reinit for a few moments then redisplay maintenance
Press 9 9 to exit the maintenance mode

This web page shows the error to be in a bad area of the display, so resetting the machine could help:

Couldn't find any other info. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Brother HL-4040CDN printer colors are off, tend to be pink


There could be a number of causes for the problems your describing, but one of the most common causes of discoloration and issues with toner is a faulty ribbon sensor. A broken sensor will be unable to accurately read the ribbon and apply the correct color. I hope this helps

I have a 4040CDN brother printer that does not want to work - tells me to turn it off and on. But nothing works after that


Is it giving you any error messages either on the small LCD screen or on your pc/laptop screen? Can you print any of the system files from the printer menu directly just to test whether it will print anything at all before trying to print from your pc/laptop? When was the last time you changed your toners or drum unit? Sorry, more questions than answers at the moment.

3b error code on display unable to print


Sorry, this is a serious error and it means the PC board is toast. On mine, it gets to 22 on the counter (I assume it's a RAM integrity check) and then the LCD turns red and says "Print Unable 3B". When I called Brother they told me I needed a new PC board, which by the way is very hard to get to (you have to disassemble everything, then take apart the printer piece by piece). The price for the PC board is around $100 plus labor, so you're talking easily $200 to fix this.

Thanks Brother for making a self-destructing Lemon of a printer, the Brother HL-4040. And thanks for telling me I was on my own and to fix it a local repair shop.

I have an HL-4040CDN Brother printer that prints too red. We just purchased it and need how to fix this problem. It also prints colored text too light.


Many people are having problems with this machine. If you are dissatisfied with the quality I would return it and try something else. Your most economical solution is going to be a factory refurbished (with warranty) HP color laserjet. Staples usually has some good deals.
