What is a waste toner box. what does it do and. BEWARE THIS NUMBER 1-800-975-0148 IS SPAM HERE

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.

Printer is showing offline and it's connected

If you "right click" on the printer icon, is there an option to "use printer Online", If so click it, and the problem should be solved. If it just says "use printer offline" then that is not the problem, and I suggest re-installing the software.
Please let me know

Need to set language to ENGLISH

You need to uninstall the print driver software and reinstall.

Here is a help page from Brother to guide you:

Brother Language Change

You will need to download and run the uninstaller software from Brother. It can be found at:

When you get to the reinstall portion, it leads you to download the driver from Brother. You can do that to be assured of the latest version, or use the disk that came with the printer.

Printer HL 5370 DW is wrinkling all envelopes. Is

If it's not wrinkling regular plain paper, then you need to tell the printer you're printing envelopes. Envelopes are thicker than letter paper. When you tell it to print, make sure you click on "Properties" and set the job for "Envelopes". Also, make sure the guides are set to fit the envelopes snugly.

Paper jam with Brother HL-2030 laser printer

Being a retired electronics technician, I located and downloaded a copy of the service manual. Then proceeded to hunt for the reason why the Paper LED was staying on. I put the printer into the Production diagnoses mode, then by process of alimination opened and closed each panel and cheack each sensor switch one at a time. At which time it was apparent the problem was the rear door sensor. So I started to disassemble the printer getting instructions from the Service manaul, as most electronic equipement there is a sequence process to accompliah this. and once I found that the method of the rear door sensor operated I found the bracket was not in the right position. I put the sensor bar back into it's proper position and put the printer back to normal opperateing mode, I found my problem was solved. So I reassembled the unit and plugged it back into the compter ran a couple of test sheets and cleaned and aligned the printer head(s) made a few adjustment and everything was back to normal.
I must say that locating the Service Manual was a feat, but worth every cent I paid for it which was $9 USD. Personally i think all service manuals should be available for all Brother products for a fee, then a large number of problems can be fixed by the owners without much bother to Brother.
I ahve two of these printers and would still purchase a Brother colour printers, my next purchase is going to be a Brother color laser printer. Out of all the printers i've used on my computers I like the brother the best.

PRINTING VERY GREY NOT BLACK

Poor quality "black" may be the result of improper voltage designed to pickup the toner and transfer it to the drum. Or, you may have a poor quality toner (or the wrong toner) in the cartridge. Various manufacturers have different toners based on electrical charge. There is both a "positive" charged toner and a "negative" charged toner. In fact, libraries that use micro film printers often have white letters on a black background... ugly and hard to read. If you take the toner cartridge and put in a positive toner in the library cartridge, you can actually switch the polarity and the image and end up with black letters on a white background. .... really neat and it works!

Clean off the wire on your cartridge unit. You can remove it from the machine, look for a tab on the top that can move back and forth to clean the wire. If you are getting streaks down your page, it can either be an old drum (which you will have to replace) or a piece of lint or dust attached to the toner wire. Once you clean off the wire and remove the lint or dust, it will not leave the streak.

I know some more but that's enough for now. Good luck.
