Brother HL - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Try removing all the toner carts and remove the drum unit from the printer. Using the upholstery tool on your home vacuum cleaner, clean all over the drum unit being careful not to directly touch the drum surfaces (they scratch very easily causing permanent marks to print) also vacuum out the inside of the printer. It is likely that dust is preventing correct charge build on the drum. Also make sure the green slide tabs are placed back at the home position at the side of the drum unit. Re-assemble and test.

I had the same problem on 4 Brother HL-5250's, I checked the whole printer, and couldn't find a paper jam, yet the red printer light wouldn't shut off. I finally followed the instructions on Brother's website for removing a paper jam, and the solution for all 4 printers was paper stuck in the fuser cover. See below on how to open the fuser cover.

Pull the tabs at the left and right hand sides toward you to open the fuser cover (1).

  2. Hint
  3. There are 2 kinds of covers at the rear of the printer. Please make sure to open both the back cover (step 7) and the fuser cover (step8).
Here's the link from HP, on how to open the Fuser Cover.

My printer Brother HL-6050DN show ERROR E50. How can I fix it?

Brother HL 6050... | Answered on Aug 27, 2019


Hello, Andrea.

Sounds like either your printer needs a new fuser assembly (If the teflon roller gets scratched or starts to disintegrate you will get lines or black marks on the page) or you need a replacement toner.

Hope this helps.

Brother HL-5240... | Answered on Aug 23, 2019


the first thing to check on the brother is the corona wire strip, its the blue slider on the drum cartridge, it should be locked to the side if it is not it will cause such a line

Brother HL 1440... | Answered on Aug 23, 2019


You remove the drum/toner cartridge and run the blue tab on top back and forth several times then blow out the slot with canned air, while it's out you reach inside with a soft cloth and wipe the narrow window above where the drum sits, open the back door and shine a light inside to see if the lines are on the fuser roller, if there you will need a new fuser.

it is something about a problem with the drum! have to clean it up!

Brother HL... | Answered on Aug 23, 2019


Take out the drum and look at it. There will almost certainly be a line of damaged drum surface exactly on the drum where you describe it is on the paper.
replacing the drum is the only option .

Hi there.
The HL-2130 does not have an auto-duplexing system included in the machine. If you wish to duplex print you need to print the first page then feed that page through the Manual Feed system (Side to be printed up, top of page first) and print the second page on the manually fed page.

It is most likly not linked to word. Word is likly sending the prints to the wrong, obsloete or wrong copy of the printer.
When printing check to see where the doc is being sent to print.
Then go to printers to see which printer is your 2140 active and ofcourse do a test print. If the test print is good this is the correct link to your printer.

Brother HL 2140... | Answered on Aug 01, 2019


Must be set on Brother MFC-7360N series. Set on PC-FAX will not print with all programs, as it is printing with an output through the fax. Go to control panel, select devices, printers to change to pc-7360 series. This should print on all programs.

Brother HL-5240... | Answered on Aug 01, 2019


Set your new HL-2140 as the default printer. Go to Control Panel, Click Printers and Scanners tab, and set your Brother HL-2140 as your default printer. You may have other printer as the default printer currently. Check your connections again. Connect it to another USB port as the current port might not be responding due to connection contact problem.
