Our copier is copying in light shade. how to make it darker


To adjust the default lighter/darker setting

1. On the LaserJet 3015, press MENU/ENTER.

2. Use the < or the > button to select Copy setup, and then press MENU/ENTER.

3. Use the < or the > button to select Def. Light/Dark, and then press MENU/ENTER.

4. Use the < or the > button to adjust the setting. Move the slider to the left to make all of the

copies lighter than the original, or move the slider to the right to make all of the copies

darker than the original.
5. Press MENU/ENTER to save the selection.

Page 48 of the User Guide has instructions for adjusting the light/dark setting during a copy job.

Also see the Troubleshooting section of the User Guide for other possible reasons for light/faded copies.

If your copies continue to come out too light, you may need to clean the insert a new toner cartridge or change brands of toner. I tried several "generic" toner cartridges and refills, but my prints and copies were always faded or streaky. After going back to genuine HP cartridges, I haven't had any print quality problems.

HOW TO REPLACE THE OLD TONER CARTRIDGE WITH NEW ONE?


Here's the process:
1) Make sure that the printer is turned on. Open the front cover. 2) Take out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly 3) Push down the green lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. 4) Be sure to seal up the toner cartridge tightly in a suitable bag so that toner powder does not spill out of the cartridge. 5) Unpack the new toner cartridge. Hold the cartridge level with both hands and gently rock it from side to side five or six times to spread the toner evenly inside the cartridge. 6) Pull off the protective cover. 7) Put the new toner cartridge firmly into the drum unit until you hear it lock into place. If you put it in properly, the lock lever will lift automatically. 8) Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the green tab from right to left and left to right several times. 9) Put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back in the printer. Close the front cover.
That's it. You may also want to download the user manual as it has photos along with the instructions above. You can obtain that at: http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_HL_2140_2170W_EN_1160.PDF

How do I open the machine to change the toner cartridge?


You just pull down the front cover that is just below where the copies come out of the machine. You will see the toner cartridge. It has a small "handle" on it. It just pulls out the front of the machine. Then just unpack the new one making sure to remove the seal tape if it is installed on your new toner. Then re-install the new cartridge and close the door. If you have your users manual for the machine, the instructions are in the manual. If you are using a OEM Canon toner cartridge I believe the instructions are included in the box.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Drum light flashes


This means that you will need to replace the drum soon. Order a new drum and when the light becomes steady or the print quality becomes poor, replace the drum. The drum should last ~12,000 pages. The part number is DR350. You may be able to order this from your Office Supply store; otherwise try the Brother Mall site: http://www.brothermall.com/Accessories/AccessoryDetail.aspx?AccessID=DR350&AspxAutoDetectCookieSupport=1 .

The procedure is similar to replacing the toner but instead of putting a new thing of toner inside the drum, you remove the toner and put it in the new drum. Open the front cover and pull out the drum and toner assembly. Place on newspaper or other disposable material (toner may spill). Push down the blue lever to unlock the toner cartridge. Remove the cartridge from the drum. Unpack the new drum (keep it out of the light until ready to replace the drum). Push the toner cartridge into the new drum until it locks into place; the blue lever should lift automatically. Put the assembly back in the printer. Clean the printer as recommended in the manual while it is open; this includes cleaning the corona wire before replacing the drum assembly.

After replacing the drum, reset the drum counter: with the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover and press and hold the GO button until all of the LEDs light up (about 4 seconds). Then release the GO button and close the cover. Check that the drum light is off. (The manual says you should do the reset first but I tend to avoid this in case of distractions.)

I hope this helps.

5 Locate the cartridge slot inside the printer, one on each side.
6 Unfold the toner cartridge handle and grasp it. Insert the cartridge into the printer until
