Question about Brother HL-4040CN Laser Printer

1 Answer

Color rendition is way off on Brother 4050 (4040/4070)

I have just purchased a Brother 4050 printer. The color rendition is completely off. Red prints as orange, blue is green, etc. When printing in B/W everything is OK. Duplexing works fine. Color is way off.
I have other color lasers that print from the same computer and color is OK. What am I not doing or setting?

Run a self calibration cycle a couple of times, and also clean the laser scanners.

SOURCE: Printer doesn't recognize red cartridge

The ink cartridge is either either clogged or running out of ink. Run the software cleaning utility (almost always accessible from the printer) in order to fix a clog. Replace the ink cartridge if the clog cannot be fixed or if the cartridge is almost empty.

SOURCE: Brother HL-4040 Laser Printer -- Print Unable 6A Error

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: Bends envelopes in printing

Most laser printers have an "S" paper path. They cannot help bending paper. I would suggest you print lables instead of envelopes if you send several letters. If you only send 1, hand address the envelope. Not elegant ut it works.

Check to see if the correct colour is in the correct place in the printer. You may have the Cyan and Magenta mixed up

Brother MFC Printers Ink Problems


<span>Your printer does not print certain colors or does not print completely. Well, this is a common problem with people who purchase Brother printers, but do not always use Brother Ink Cartridges. Brother has a cleaning agent in the print cartridge and the compatibles do not.<br /><br />"If you have a lack of one (or more) color do the following:<br /><br />Make sure all carts are full, placed well and are secured. Insert a new ORIGINAL BROTHER CART for the one that shows no color.<br /><br />Press menu then start bk-copy then four times arrow up quick after another. machine will switch into maintenance mode and all lights will flash. Press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk-copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink within tubes and print head. After that it does some power cleaning. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk-copy. machine will run a power purge. when finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. do run a quality test print.<br /><br />This should clean the lines out and clear up your issue.</span>

I have an HL-4040CDN Brother printer that prints too red. We just purchased it and need how to fix this problem. It also prints colored text too light.


Many people are having problems with this machine. If you are dissatisfied with the quality I would return it and try something else. Your most economical solution is going to be a factory refurbished (with warranty) HP color laserjet. Staples usually has some good deals.

When printing i am getting red blotches Brother hl-4040cn


I had this same problem when printing photos. Go into printing preferences, then the Advanced tab up top.....make sure "Color Mode" has NONE selected. That lets the program you are using do the color management.

Hope that helps!!

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.
