Question about Brother HL 1230 Laser Printer
I use a Brother HL-1230 printer. when i try to send documents to it all i get is a full page of solid black! ive even typed just one letter and tried printing that, and i still just get a solid black page. is something terribly wrong, or just a quick fix? how do i fix it and make it start printing normally again? thankyou
In laser printers, theres a charging corona wire that gives the paper a 600v positive charge which attracts the toner. once the paper hits the drum, a laser with a 600v negative charge is shot at the paper which discharges the paper and the toner isnt attracted to that area anymore.
either the laser is malfunctioning and not shooting a beam at the drum which would make all the toner go to the paper, or theres something wrong with the toner cartridge.
try going to the brother website and downloading the driver again (cheap and easy) and if that doesnt fix the problem, replace the cartridge, i know, not cheap. if neither fixes the problem, call the brother support line and see what they can do for you. maybe the warranty will cover the repair costs for you.
hope this helps.
