Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

HL-2040 Laser printer hangs at 32%

My problem started when I changed the toner cartridge and couldn't getthe printer to recognize the cartridge. I used the solution suggestedon another post where you turn the power off, open the door, hold thebutton down, press go 2x, then go 5xs (who ever thougth of THATsolution....) but now after I have reconnected everything I am gettinghung up at soemwhere around 24 to 32%. I tried shutting down andrestarting to no avail. I am using a USB hub and all the otherperipherals on it work fine. I have switched over to my backup printeran HP Inkjet and then I can print. But I like my laser printer's printsso much better! Any suggestions?

How to Change a Toner Cart in a Brother HL 2040

The Brother HL 2040 laser printer has a toner cartridge that supplies toner to the drum assembly so that the printer can print properly. When the LED on the front of the printer indicates you are low on toner, you will need to replace the toner cartridge to maintain good print quality. Fortunately, the toner cartridge can be replaced without any special tools.

Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Replacement toner cartridge (part number TN350 or TN360)
* Paper towel or scrap paper



Grasp the front cover of the printer and pull it toward you to open the toner door. Reach into the printer and grab the combined toner cartridge/drum assembly. Lift up slightly and pull it out of the front of the printer.

Place the cartridge and drum on a paper towel, spare sheet of paper, rag or other surface that can get dirty. Loose toner particles may spill from the cartridge.

Press the blue locking lever on the cartridge/drum unit to unlock the toner cartridge from the drum. Lift the toner cartridge up and away from the drum unit. Dispose of the old toner cartridge in accordance with your local regulations. Seal it in a plastic bag to keep loose toner from spilling.



Gently shake your new toner cartridge back and forth a few times to distribute the toner evenly across the width of the cartridge. Remove the plastic protective cover from the bottom of the cartridge.


Place the new toner cartridge onto the drum unit and press it down gently until it locks into place. The blue locking lever will automatically click into place. Verify that the toner cartridge is securely connected to the drum.


Locate the corona wire cleaner tab at the front of the drum unit. Slide it back and forth several times to improve the print quality of the drum. Set the tab back in the home position when finished.


Slide the combined toner cartridge/drum unit back into the printer and close the front cover.


Hope it helps...

PROBLEM


You must determine what the problem: the printer or cartridge. If this problem started after refilling the cartridge means a cartridge forgot to put the flag is reset. It is done very simply: removed the side cover of the cartridge and the flag of one unit in the top position.
If the cartridge is all right, for example, you put a new cartridge and the problem persists, then to examine the sensor for detection of a new toner in the printer. Get the toner and drum cartridges. Inside the printer at the top left you will see a white leg sensor. About her. It should be on the spring and should not hang in one position. That's all:)

I wouldn't assume that you aren't out of/low on toner.
Try taking out the toner cartridge and tap/shake it to disperse the toner that is left in it. If that changes the way it is printing, it is about time to replace that cartridge.
