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...

I have a Brother HL 2040. I placed a remanufactured drum and toner into it. The Drum light keeps going on. From various sources on the internet, I learned that I am supposed to reset the white counter on...


Here is the drum counter reset procedure.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Brother HL 2040 prints extremely light and seems to smudge? Just changed out the tone cartridge and no change.


I'm not sure if the drum is going out or not. How many toners have you used? The drum is rated at 12,000 pages and the toner is supposed to yeild 2500 pages, so 4 or 5 toners ought to finish the drum. Did you clean the area around the drum? I don't think you're supposed to touch it, but I've never had to touch my 7240 in 4 years, except to change the toner.

The good news is the toner will fit in more than one Brother machine and the printers are inexpensive. It almost makes buying a new machine more economical than a drum :-}

The HL printer is Manufacturer Discontinued, the new ones use a 360 series drum and toner, and the MFC's (7220 etc.) are about $200 vs. $116 for the drum. Hmmm.

Might be time to upgrade.

Printer prints a duplicate image. Is the drum dirty?


does the problem exist if you try your old cartridge (just for a test)? if it doesn't, then you have a defective toner. Otherwise it is coincidental, and you need to replace the Drum unit.

Try changing the toner cartridge.
If you are useing refill cartridges and the roller starts to cease
up, the printer still trys to drive it and causes all sorts of problems.The worst thing that can happen is that the drive
gear inside the printer shatters and you will be unable to remove
the drum & toner consumables.
