I got this same error message on a newly acquired Brother DCP-7040 that I purchased used off of ebay.

As I was troubleshooting this unit (that I bought untested off of ebay - hey gambling has paid off handsomely for me many times before!), this error message kept popping up.

I checked the COUNTERS (page & Drum life) and found out that the DRUM had 0% life left. BUT, the reason it showed ZERO was because this unit did not have any drum! The toner cartridge (TN-360) needs to sit WITHIN the drum (DR-360) on this DCP-7040 unit, as well as in models DCP-7030, MFC-7340, MFC-7345C, and MFC-7440N.

So perhaps some of these "put the black toner cartridge back in" problems could be related to the DRUM (or lack thereof). A possible tipoff (since the toner cartridge actually does slide into the unit much like other units that do not use Brother's DRUM carrier) seems to be the relative ease with which the toner cartridge slides into the DCP-7040 and really doesn't seem to "lock" into position real firmly.

Use the Brother **** that came with the printer or download the scanner drivers directly from Brother and then use "install new device" from computer control panel and point to downloaded drivers. Brother site has the manual too.

sounds like the modem on your printer has failed depending on how old it is most likely it would be cheaper to buy a new printer

If you are referring to a page number that is appearing on printed documents then you will have to look at the software you are using. If it is a premade document like an PDF file you would need a program capable of editing a PDF. If you are referring to the date and page number on a fax you likely cannot delete that.

Are you trying to print from the main paper tray with the envelope or from the auxiliary single page feeder? The auxiliary insert should be directly under the "Brother" logo on the front of the printer. Insert the envelope there. If it's a standard light weight envelope and it gets stuck still then I'd suggest there is a paper jam somewhere or possibly the fuser is going bad.

Printers are particular about which usb port they are plugged into, a virtual printer port is assigned to USB1 in the computer, when you select the printer port for it to use. You may need to plug the printer into each USB port, until you fine the USB port 1 which it works in, remember to always connect it to this same usb port, otherwise it will not work. There is only one USB port number 1.
