20 Most Recent Brother HL3040CN Laser Printer Questions & Answers

I would first check to see if you are using New / O.E.M. Toner and drums. Most compatible / remanufactured Toner and Drums work okay , they don't do well on Brochures or rich Graphic prints. If you hav'nt installed any supplies recently, the Drum Units is where I would start. Not usually a Cleaning issue.

if you need to replace the printer, i would suggest to buy compatible toner, you will save some money doing this. the technology for compatible toner has improved greatly in recent years, you should have no problem using it. i usually buy my ink toner from this website:
Brother Toners Inks Cartridges or
Amazon com Online Shopping for Electronics Apparel Computers Books DVDs... if they have something with prime. Watch this video
it might help you print with empty cartridge :)

Hey, i had this problem with the cyan colour and it is easily fixed. You take out the problem cartridge and under it, youll see a green tab that you can slide left and reight. you must make sure this tab is at the "home" position. ie, all the way to the left until it clicks into place. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/eu/eu_ot/en/faq/faq/000000/000000/000065/faq000065_049.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=hl3040cn_all&Cat=7 This shows a picture about half way down the page of what it should look like. this solved my problem:) cheers!

Need to change all the drums, but you can keep your old drums just reset the printer but your print quality will not be the best, after you change or not change you need to reset the counters. here is more information from brother
