Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer

On HL 1440 Laser Printer, ready and alarm lights (red) on control panel are lit.

The red lights for ready and alarm are on. When I hit the reset button, they blink green and the printer sounds like it wants to work. Then the lights go back red and nothing happens. When I open the door to the space where the toner cartridge is and then shut the door, the lights blink green and the printer will print, however the page comes out full of gray streaks. How do I fix this?

  • I take it you are refilling the toner cartridge...
  • Switch the printer off.
  • Press and hold the green button on your printer and turn the printer on. You will see that the lights flash for a moment and then turn off. After a few seconds, the attention light will turn on followed by ready light and the green light. Keep pressing the green button. In a few seconds, the attention light and the ready light will turn off.
  • Push the toner rotate button while you continue pressing the green button. As you briefly push the toner button, you will see the light flashing. Release both the toner button and the green button.
  • Repeatedly push the red button (cancel button). Now all the working lights on the printer will turn off.
  • Open and close the lid of HP printer once. The light will start blinking.
  • Press the green button. Your HP toner cartridge chip will be reset.

    Hi my lj 1010 printer is not initialising at all When i trun on the printer after blinking all the lights one by one its red light keeps glowing There is no gear movement at all I have good experience in...


    try to do cold reset:
    1. Turn the printer off.
    2. Press and hold down the green GO button.
    3. Turn the print on while continuing to hold down the green GO button for at least 5 seconds, but no longer than 15 seconds. During this process, the attention LED (!) turns on.
    4. Release the GO button. The printer is ready if the green ready light is steadily on.

    Canon mp250, not printing. Print screen says "creating print data" and freezes there.


    This sounds like an internal memory problem and I don't have a workaround. Before you give up, try this technique to reset the printer to factory. They are great printers once you learn this reset technique. Turn off printer. Hold down Stop/Reset button with one hand and turn printer on with other hand. After green light comes on for the ON button, press the Stop/Reset button two times and you should see the green light blink off and the orange alarm light blink "on" with the first press and then the green light comes back on for the power button and the orange light goes off with the second press (if you did it correctly). Now, you need to hold down the ON button about five seconds, then let go to shut OFF the printer. When you turn it back on, the printer should be back to the factory original condition. Make sure you set all your printer properties the way you want them again from your printer properties dialog boxes because some of the settings may have been stored in the printer's EEPROM, which you just reset to get rid of the offending alarm code.

    Alarm lights keep blinking after I changed my printer ink.


    E5 means cartridges error - to fix press the "stop\reset" button for 5-7 seconds and then release it.

    You can also try this:

    1) With the printer power turned off but connected to a power source, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button.
    (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

    2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.)

    3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and
    Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light
    alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

    4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)according to the function listed in the table below. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
    Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

    My VT-90 will not play


    The VT-90 uses 4 CR 2025 batteries. Once you install them you must initialize the unit by holding the "erase all" button for 10 seconds. After a series of blinking the unit is ready again. Good luck.
