Question about Brother HL 1430 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Drum replacement but not printing

Dutifully replacing the drum resulted in the drum light going off but did not cure the not printing problem. I even tried a new toner cartridge but to no avail. Help! I sent an email to the brother company asking for help but haven't received a response. I really need to have printer capability and am feeling foolish for paying for a drum and cartridge when I should probably have ditched the machine and bought a new printer.

Your almost there. Now you need to replace the 'Transfer Roller'. The transfer roller transfers the image from the drum onto the paper. If this roller is worn out all you'll get is blank pages printing out. Ray CompuGuy44

Checking the toner cartridge
Image formation defects are many times the result of problems in the toner cartridge. If there is any doubt, always replace the toner cartridge before troubleshooting image defects.
Use the following checklist to make sure that the toner cartridge is still operable.
" Make sure that the toner cartridge is seated properly.
" Inspect the toner cartridge for toner level.
" Check the expiration date stamped on the toner cartridge box.
" Check the toner cartridge to see if it has been disassembled or refilled.
" Inspect the toner cartridge to see if toner is leaking through worn seals.
" Check the surface of the photosensitive drum in the cartridge to see if it has been damaged or scratched. Touching the drum contaminates the photosensitive surface and can cause spotting
and image defects.
" Blurred areas on printed pages indicate that the photosensitive drum in the cartridge has been overexposed to light. Because overexposure to light causes permanent damage to the photosensitive drum, the cartridge should be replaced.
Note A toner cartridge weighs approximately 863 grams (30.5 oz) when it is full, approximately 766 grams (27.0 oz) when it first fades, and approximately 742 grams (26.2 oz) when it is empty.

To redistribute toner in the cartridge

Before installing a new cartridge or when toner begins to run low, redistribute the toner by rotating the cartridge back and forth five or six times.

I have a Brother Laser Printer HL-5350DN. I refill toner myself but the toner light will not go out. How do I reset it so it goes off?


There is a reset gear in the cartridge that needs to be "reset" or replaced. I've included a link to a PDF file that goes over the procedure to properly refill and reset the toner cartridge. This is a document that is used by a company that does a complete rebuild, so you probably won't need most of the information, just the part on resetting the reset gear.

We have a Brother HL 2140 series the printer will not print. It has a new toner cart. The drum light is lit . Any suggestions?


This machine has a separate drum and toner cartridge. Replacing the toner does not reset the drum light. Double check that the light on is, in fact, the drum light, and if it is, replace the drum unit. This should resolve your problem.
In order to replace the drum unit, do this: 1) With the printer on and the drum light blinking, open the front cover. 2) Press and hold the Go button for about 4 seconds until all the LEDs light up. Once all LEDs light up, release the Go button. 3) Pull the print assembly out of the machine. 4) Push down the green lock lever to take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. 5) Put the toner cartridge into the new drum unit. 6) Reinsert the print assembly into the machine. 7) Close the front cover and verify that the lights turn off.
It is theoretically possible that you could reset the counter without actually changing the drum by simply skipping steps 3-6 above, but I have never tried it before and Brother may be checking a chip on the drum unit to verify that it is, in fact, a new drum unit. If they are, you will have to actually replace the unit to make the light go off. I would strongly recommend against resetting the counter without actually changing the drum though, as your print quality will degrade and the machine may start to dump toner into the inside creating a rather large mess and a hefty repair bill.

How to Replace the Toner Cartridge:
Replace the toner cartridge with a new one using the following procedure. When replacing the toner cartridge, clean the fixing unit using the Printer Status Window. For details on cleaning the fixing unit, see "How to clean the fixing unit" in Related Information at the end of this page.
Important: Do not touch the high-voltage contacts (A) inside the top cover, as this may result in damage to the printer.
80005964en_i05rt03024_01.gif
1. Open the top cover. Holding the top cover by the cutout edge, open the cover until it stops.
80005964en_i05rt03024_02.gif
2. Raise the toner cartridge in the direction of the arrow (1), then remove it (2).
80005964en_i05rt03024_03.gif
3. Take a new toner cartridge out of the protective bag. As there is a notch cut near the arrow, you can tear open the bag by hand. However, if you are unable to tear open the bag by hand, use scissors to open the protective bag so as not to damage the toner cartridge.
80005964en_i05rt02032_03.gif
Important: a. Keep the protective bag for the toner cartridge. It will be required after taking out the toner cartridge for printer maintenance. b. Print quality may deteriorate if you touch or damage the drum inside the drum cartridge. Be sure not to touch or open the drum protective shutter (A). Be careful not to hold or touch sensitive areas that are not specified in this procedure. This may result in damage to the cartridge.
80005964en_i05rt02029_03.gif
c. Do not expose the toner cartridge to direct sunlight or strong light.
80005964en_i05rt02032_04.gif
4. Hold the toner cartridge as shown in the figure, shake it gently 5 or 6 times to evenly distribute the toner inside the cartridge.
80005964en_i05rt02032_05.gif
Important: a. If the toner is not distributed evenly, this may result in deterioration in print quality. Be sure to perform this step properly. b. Be sure to shake the toner cartridge gently. If you do not shake the cartridge gently, toner may spill out. c. Be careful not to hold or touch sensitive areas such as the electrical contacts (A) or sensor, as this may result in damage to the toner cartridge or printer.
80005964en_i05rt02032_06.gif
5. Place the toner cartridge on a flat surface, then pull out the sealing tape (approx. 50 cm long) gently while supporting the toner cartridge. Pull out the sealing tape straight in the direction of the arrow.
80005964en_i05rt02029_01.gif
Important: a. Do not pull the sealing tape diagonally, upwards, or downwards. If the tape is severed, it may become difficult to pull out completely.
80005964en_i05rt02029_02.gif
b. Pull out the sealing tape completely from the toner cartridge. If any tape remains in the toner cartridge, this may result in poor print quality. c. When pulling out the sealing tape, be careful not to hold the drum protective shutter (A) with your hands.
80005964en_i05rt02029_03.gif
d. After removing the protective bag, install the toner cartridge in the printer as soon as possible. e. Dispose of the sealing tape according to local regulations.
6. Align the projections on both sides of the toner cartridge with the toner cartridge guide inside the printer, push the toner cartridge completely into the printer (1), and then pull it down toward you (2).
80005964en_i05rt02032_07.gif
80005964en_i05rt02032_08.gif
7. Close the top cover.

New black ink but very poor quality print?


Is this an original DEll toner, or a remanufactured one?
Sometimes a remanufactured cartridge can need a few pages printed before the new toner 'works ' through the internal mechanisms. Not all remaufacturers actually test (all) of their cartridges. The better ones test 100%, to ensure a quality product.

It could be that the wrong toner has been used in the cartridge (not all toner is the same - by a long way).

It could be that the drum has NOT been replaced. These can be light damaged and result in a poor print quality. An original drum is purple in colour. Aftermarket drums are blue/green.

Toner


Likely thing is that you have a faulty toner cartridge return it to the store and ask for a replacement in exchange as yours is faulty. IF this does not cure the fault then maybe the drum unit causing the fault and this may need replacing.
