Installing a replacement toner

No documentation available and I need to install a replacement toner. I have got as far as finding a small blue lever on an internal tray assembly. I think it is used to release the tray but am not sure. Can one of you guys walk me through the procedure. Many thanks.

How do you replace the drum properly on a Brother HL-5240

Out with the old and in with the new, you remove the toner and drum together, remove the toner from the old drum by pressing the blue lever on the side, install the toner in the new drum, and re install in the printer. With the front door open press the go button til all lights flash and then close the door, the new drum is reset.

you take the toner and drum assembly out of the printer, set it on a level surface, press the blue lever on the left side rear, and lift and remove the toner. Remove any packing material from the new cartridge, set the front toward the drum in first and lower the rear down until the blue lever clicks. Re-install the assembly into the printer...good to go!

Trying to find documentation for the Canon Imagerunner 400S. Need to know how to add toner?

Did you look on the box the toner comes in? Also, when the copier needs toner, the display panel will walk you through the steps of how to install a new toner. The hardest part is getting the toner cartridge OFF. You need to press the front of the developing unit right under the blue cover on the front. The Black piece will push in to release the toner cartridge. Good Luck...

Printer/Toner Problem

Sounds like it may be a remanufactured toner cartridge, and the 'reset lever' has not been installed or replaced. If you look at the side of the toner unit, you will see a sort of 'half moon' notch, that should have a white coloured lever within it. This lever is pushed backward when the cartridge is installed. So, on a new cartridge, it should be pushed forward (or towards the printer as you install it).
Note: This lever is not installed on the cartridge that the printer was shipped with (starter cartridge).

No error code, all works but won't make a copy

I have a couple of questions for you.

Does the paper exit your copier?
if so, is it a blank copy?

Toner problems

I've had this problem several time. Usually I fix it with a q-tip!

Open the top of the printer and locate the correct toner cartridge. Pull the (blue) lever on the right side of the cartridge toward you to disengage it from the drum. Gently life the toner cartridge out of the printer.

On the right end (the end with the blue lever) there's a small slot. You should see some white plastic in there. Use the qtip to clean off any dirt or toner.

Now replace your toner cartridge and slide the blue lever back to the original position. Close the top.

This USUALLY fixes the problem. (I must stress "usually" because I'm having the problem right now and this procedure won't fix it, but I've fixed it with this method a dozen times before.)

Stupid question but make sure that there is nothing on the glass surface underneath your document feeder. Be sure to get the main glass clean as well as the little strip of glass to the left. If this didn't fix your problem than you need to do a little more cleaning.

When was the last time you changed the toner? In the toner box you should have gotten a small grayish blue box with a plastic top and felt head. There should have been instructions on how to use this little cleaning tool but what you need to do is to remove the waste toner bottle being very careful not to spill the waste toner all over yourself. Before you do anything else you should gently take out the green square handle. Now behind the space where the waste toner bottle is located you will notice a small hole that fits the little blue box minus the cap. Gently place the blue box (peg first) into the hole (should only fit one way but the felt tip should point to the right) and gently move the green handle back and forth 3 to 4 times. Take the blue box out and throw away, put the green handle back in and than replace the waste toner bottle.

If you don't have the little blue box than call the company you got your copier from, they should be able to help you.

Hope this helps.

Oh I'm a pro now that I had to twice vacuum toner off my home office floor. You have to have a small (apprx) 1/8" screw to hold a pin on either side of the toner cartride, then carefully pull then out noting that the pins are NOT the same. Then CAREFULLY, pull off the cartridge top cover and locate a hard plastic "cap" (convex). CAREFULLY, use a small screw driver to edge this up then fingernails to grab and loosen 'til it puts out. Fill the toner, then replace cap, all the way in, then re-assemble, CAREFULLY. If you breathe or bat your eyelashes the wrong way, you're hosed.

Paper light on...!!

Turn the printer off. Take out the toner drum and cartridge. Remove the toner cartridge by pressing on the blue lever on the left side. Check for paper. Replace the cartridge. At the rear of the toner drum is a blue slide lever on the right side for cleaning the corona wire. Move the lever back and forth, left and right, about 30 times. Reset lever to far right side with arrows lining up. Set the drum and cartridge aside. Remove the paper tray and look inside for a jammed sheet of paper. Flip the back lid down and check for paper. Snap the back lid up, replace the paper tray, and replace the drum and toner cartridge. Turn the printer on. Press the ready button 3 times quickly. It should print a specifications sheet. If it does, try printing from your computer. If this did not help, Brother tech support is 1-800-276-7746. Robi
