HOW TO REMOVE TONER CARTRIDGE TO REPLACE WITH NEW ONE


Hi,

1. 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.

2. 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.


3. 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.


4. 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.


5. 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.


6. 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.

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

How do i change the toner on m my HL 2040 brother printer


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...

Where do I access the ink cartridge compartment to change the cartridges?


With the power on, open the front cover. The cartridges will move to the replacement position:

1) Push down lightly on the front of the cartridge and pull back and down, out of the slot
2) To replace, make sure you have removed the tape and other packaging materials from the new cartridge, then push in and then up, until the cartridge clicks into place in the slot
3) Close the front cover
4) Your printer may fiddle around for awhile preparing the new cartridge for use

I hope this helps!

Unable to remove black cartridge, it is really stuck. Help


I just changed my black toner this past week, and finally figured out why the cartridges get stuck like this.

First, you must eject the toner cartridge on the front-panel menu:
Menu->Replace Toner->Eject Toner->Black(K)

It will say "Rotating to Black Toner(K)" and then say "Black Toner(K) Ready to Eject"

Now, open the front panel and you'll see the black toner cartridge in front. You can also open the top panel if you want more light on your work area.

Lift the lock handle on the old toner cartridge to the "unlock" position, and here's the part that the Dell instructions don't have:

There are two channels for the toner cartridges -- one on each side. Run your finger down the channel on the right, and you'll feel a small, spring-loaded catch. This catch often gets sticky and won't release the cartridge without some help. Don't force it, but gently move it towards the back of the printer and it should release.

Now the old cartrdige should slide right out, and you can finish per the instructions that came with the new cartridge.

Reinstall the cartridges
Make sure each cartridge is in the correct slot
Make sure the cartridge is snapped into place and the latch is closed

Paper will not feed


Please follow the steps given below:

1. Unplug all cables from the back of the printer.
2. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a black belt with rubber teeth on it. (On some models, the cartridge access is very small, but the belt should still be visible.)
3. Take the top part of the belt and move it gently to the right. The cartridges should come towards the center.
4. If the cartridges will not move, tilt the printer on its back and try moving the belt again.
5. If it still will not move, try putting your finger inside the area where the cartridges are stuck (with the printer still on its back), and push them firmly against the cartridge carrier holder while you move the belt with your other hand.
6. Once the cartridge carrier is in the middle, please make sure that the cartridges are snapped firmly into the cartridge carrier. Note: Make sure that these cartridges are the correct models for your printer. Once the cartridges are seated properly, they should not become loose inside the carrier.
7. Plug all the connections back in and power the printer up.
8. Open the front cover again to see if the cartridges slide to the center.
