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...

Toner light is flashing and printing has stopped


Hello ,

This problem is a common issue and easily fixed.
When putting in a new toner cartridge, the printer usually automatically resets the toner count.
In a situation like this, the printer did not automatically do the reset and so we must manually reset the printer.

To manually reset the printer, first, remove the toner from the printer and separate it from the drum unit.

With the toner cartridge in hand and the brother writing facing you, look to the left side of the cartridge. You should see an arc shaped opening with a white tab in it.

The tab is set at the right position and must be pushed back to the left side of the opening.
To push the tab back, you must turn the grey gear attached to the front roller upwards as you push the tab.

Once the tab has been placed to the left position, the printer will accept it as a new toner cartridge.

Thanks,

Pat

The toner light will not turn off, preventing printing. I'm perfectly happy with the print quality of my last printed page. Is there a way to force it off?


A small piece of electrical tape on the right and left sides of the toner cartridge covering the little round windows will fool the printer into thinking there is still toner and let you use it up.

Brother 9440cn replace toner message override


well you could shake the toner cartridge, to make sure that the remaining toner has uniform coverage to the developer roller, which is the black magentic roller in the toner, which applies the toner onto the drum.

Only way to fix, if the printer uses a electronic sensor, is to actually change the toner, it can not be overridden.

Faded print quality


If your toner saver is off and still getting faded quality means you mirrors and Scanning Lamp are not reflecting images properly.
Now if you are handy on printer then you need to take off glass
