My printer will not print correctly.


First thing I would do is take the toner cartridge out and shake it left and right a bit. Hit it 'firmly' on the side with your hand, then put it back. Your manual will probably describe the same procedure. That usually loosens up enough toner powder to print another 20 or 30 sheets. How long have you had that particular toner cartridge? Would you have done a lot of printing using that one? Sounds nearly empty to me. As a test, does anything print normally? I mean write some random stuff in notepad like about twenty lines (just hold a key down on the keyboard) and then try to print from notepad. Does that print normally? If so, the problems likely to be with your application on your PC. Obviously you have restarted both the printer and the PC? As a last resort, you might have to download a newer printer driver, but that's another story. Rgds, Dave.

I have a problem in my oki b2200 printer.he does not print.when i was print page then one errer show."your toner empty.and other side printer give us beep orange light


When the toner cartridge is exhausted or empty then theprinter will not be able to print further documents or the prints will be veryfaint. You may be able to print a few more pages by removing thetoner cartridge and shaking the toner cartridge in a horizontal position a fewtimes and then placing it back into the printer. This will give you an opportunity to print a few more pages and giveyou time to purchase a new toner cartridge for your printer. A cheaperalternative is to purchase a re-manufactured toner cartridge for your modelprinter. A re-manufactured printer cartridge also replaces worn partsas well as refilling with toner powder.

Two weeks back change Developer powder and Toner powder. Now printing quality is dull means printing is light. Please give me a solution


Ensure optics are clean and the drum isn't worn. You can try changing F6-21 towards the + side. This will boost your toner concentration.

If the orange light is on and remains on does that mean that the toner is out of ink and needs to be replaced?? When you press print it makes noise but won't print anything and then the orange light is on.

Brother HL-2070N Laser Printer Will Not Print


First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.

From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.

There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).

Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.

Improve print quality


If you have changed drum AND toner, and reset drum count, cleaned scan slit glass on lit then only other thing to clean that can cause dirty prints is laser glass, (remove drum, inside where drum goes there is a slit the rund width of printer on inside middle "ceiling"

The orange piece I take it is the lower heat roller at rear, cleaning this is not going to fix anything.. this area called the fuser sometimes the fuser wears the coating off the upper heat roller (above orange one) and leaves like a smudge mark on prints, like I say cleaning wont fix replacingfuser with new would be what is required

I find a lot of grey shading on prints on this model are from faulty toner cartridges, next is drum then worn fuser roller... Stop a print half way (timing) in machine remove drum and look at print, after drum but pre fuser ,to see if image is ok before entering fuser, then we know if that is your problem
