    The red light and the toner light is on. I removed the toner cartridge and shook it to get a little more life out of it and replaced it, but the red light and the toner light will not go out and it will not print. Shaking the cargtridge has always worked before.

    The status/toner light stays lite. Was printing approx. 50 pages and it just quit printing. Tried powering it off and back on, did not help. Also removed toner and replaced it back.

After printing several hundred sheets, status light went red. There was no paper jam. Let printer "cool down" overnight. Status light still red. Drum has never been replaced. Toner light is on. However, in...


Well, if the toner light is on, you're probably out of toner and the only reason it ran, was because it was low but not completely depleted.

Try new toner drum off of Ebay or Amazon for the best prices for your brother printer.

A solid red STATUS light with a solid yellow TONER light indicates toner out...replace according to pg. 63 in the manual.
It can also indicate a cartridge position error. Take the DRUM UNIT out of the machine and re-install.

A solid red STATUS light only means:

Front cover open
Fuser cover open
Dust on drum
Too many trays
Buffer error
Print overrun
Memory full
Download full
Font full

See pg.48 ofthe manual.

It doesnt print anything. the status light is red. i dont know whats wrong


A red Status light means 'paper jam'. A red light corresponding to one or more of the toner cartridges means empty cartridge. A flashing red light corresponding to one or more toner cartridges means low toner.

Not printing, making me crazy


A paper jam has occurred. To solve the
problem, see “Clearing Paper Jams” on
page 6.3.
• The front or top cover is opened. Close the
front or top cover.
• There is no paper in the tray. Load paper
in the tray.
• The waste toner container is not
installed or full. Check the container.
• Your system has some problems. If this
problem occurs, contact your service
representative.
  • Also i can indicate that the Toner Cartridges are empty and need replaced with Genuine Samsung Cartridges
