  1. Open the front like you are going to pull out the toner.
  2. With the door open push and hold the button the on the left side that the blue button normally pushes when closed.
  3. Release after 30 seconds. this will reset the drum.

Hope this helps. Happy Printing :)

How can I replace the corona wire in the drum of brother HL 2140 printer, I've seen it broken, I'd disassemble the assembly and two terminal lugs w/ broken corona wire dislocated to its position.


Hi, I have the same printer as you. My background is in the development, design and manufacturing of printers. while i didn't have the opportunity of designing the toner system, I do know that doing anything with the corna wire requires that you never touch the wire with your bare hands.Replace the corna wire requires special tools to set the tightness keeping clean in the process. Unfortunately by the time you spend to replace the wire, it would be easier to buy a replacement drum. there are some reasonable cost rebuilt drums sub systems. look on ebay to find them.

Brother HL-2140 laser printer, where is the toner located


The toner cartridge is inside the printer's drum unit. To change the toner, make sure that the printer is on and then open the front cover by pulling it down. Then pull the drum and toner cartridge assembly out of the printer. (Take care not to touch the electrodes on the sides of the drum.) Push down on the green lever (on the left side of the drum unit). Then you can remove the toner cartridge from the drum unit.

Open your new toner cartridge and then shake it gently and remove the protective cover. Put the new cartridge into the drum unit and push down until it clicks (the green lever should come up automatically). Slide the green tab along the corona wire back and forth several times. (Return it to the home position when done).

Then return the drum and toner assembly to the printer and close the front cover. Wait until the Ready light is lit before turning off the printer or reopening the front cover.

For pictures of the HL-2140 drum and toner assembly (and the toner replacement procedure), see page 60 and subsequent pages of the manual here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doc002308/cv_hl2140_usaeng_usr_d.pdf .

I hope this helps.

HL-2140 Clean Corona wire Message won't go away.


Hello,
If you are getting "clean corona wire" on your PC and the toner light on the machine is solid, you need to change your toner cartridge.
This is a bug in the brother software.
Thanks,
Pat

I have a brother 2140 printer, it ran out of toner and i refilled toner starter cartridge , and error message comes back to clean the corona , i replaced ther cartridge with a new tn-360 cartridge, but...


When it says to clean the corona, on the drum there is a purple tab that moves from one side to the other. run it back and forth a couple times that should solve the problem.

I dont recommend refilling the cartridges, we have had several issues in repairing those printers with refill. if you must use refills, i would recommend getting 2nd or 3rd party manufacturers.

if you need help, you can contact us.
thanks adi

Get error light when trying to print labels - HL 2140


The driver should pop up a error message. Possibly is due to clean corona wire. Slide the blue lever several times across (at the drum unit).

Corona wire needs adjusting


Of you need to remove the toner cartage the if you look on the roller side of it you will see a tiny yellow tab on the right side I believe that is the corona wire cleaning tab. You press down or hold on to it and slide it back and forth left to right thus cleaning the corona wire.
Also the message corona wire needs cleaning often is displayed close to the end of the toner life so after cleaning and reseating the toner back in the printer wait for it to self test 10 sec or so and the press three times the blue large (only) button on the printer. You need to press it at a good speed for the printer to respond. Press to fast it won't work.
This will give you a printer setting page on it the toner life will be displayed along with estimated drum life and good deal of other information.

CORONA WIRE CLEANING


SWARNAVA has the most common wrong answer to this problem...

I am waiting for a firmware update to fix this issue. The only solution is repeatedly removing the drum/toner, moving the green cleaner back and forth, putting it all back together loosely, putting it in the printer loosely, and closing the door gently. Hold down the blue button until all the lights glow, then release. If you're lucky you only have to repeat this process a dozen times until you trick the sensor into not giving false readings.

Corona wire


I was getting the clean the corona wire problem message even after repeated cleanings.  Before this problem occured the toner light was flashing warning of low toner. When I got the clean the wire pop up the toner light was on all the time indicating the toner was depleated.  So, I thought I would try replacing the toner cartridge and see what happened. I opened the new toner box and noticed on the foil packege specific instructions to clean the corona wire when installing the new toner.  I installed the new toner and cleaned the wire one more time. I then reinstalled the drum and toner assembly into the printer and the clean the corona wire message did not come up again.  The printer now works fine.
