Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Are you using genuine brother toners, or generic/refilled ones?
There are a few possible causes of this issue, including a bad cartridge, internal debris/contamination, or a hardware failure (bad logic board, faulty sensor, etc).
What we can try are some cleaning and reset steps.
First remove the toner, then clean the metal electrical contacts on the back, as well as where they mate up inside the printer, using qtips and rubbing alcohol. Dry well, then reseatThen reset the machine:unplug power at the wall outletwait 5 minutespress and hold the power/on button for 60+ secondskeep holding while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after, then release
Let me know the results, and I'll advise further if needed.
Thanks, ***** ***** luck!
Thank you for trying,
do you happen to have another cartridge handy, or even the old one that you can try?At this point, it is either a bad cartridge, or an internal hardware fault. We will need to try another toner as a next step.
