20 Most Recent Brother HL-4070CDW Printer Questions & Answers


like the name suggest, it collects waste toner. Any toner that is left over from the print process is waste toner. Once the waste toner bottle is full, the printer will stop working until You have replaced it with an empty waste toner bottle. So in short, if it is telling u to get a new one, get one or the other option is to empty it yourself which is very messy and if u dont clean the bottle of all toner dust, may not even work.

Definitely a faulty cartridge. It is probably a build up of toner on the doctor blade or a deformed doctor blade.

Detach the power cord from the back of the printer for about 2-3 minutes so it can recycle. Plug back in. Hopefully, it will reset and sense that the paper is there.

from what u did I would look for a broken paper sensor. It could also be a ripped paper hanging the sw. it might also be that somehow the operating tray got changed in the config - if u have multiple trays or manual feed

Check the duplex settings, often you have a choice on long side or short side for duplexing. If short side is chosen then it will print duplex as though you are making a flip chart not a book

Actually, there is...here are the steps to reset your toner cartridges.

1. Open the front cover of the printer and leave open during steps.
2. Press and hold the "cancel" button and press the "Reprint" button also.
(You can now release both buttons, as you are now in the reset menu)
3. Now it is just a matter of scrolling through the menu (using the + or - keys) to the appropriate cartridge. Once you're at the cartridge you want to reset, just push, "OK" twice, to reset it.
4. Continue scrolling through and reset any cartridges you want.

please rate me :)
