I am unable to take out the toner/cartridge unit.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
But time is the key now. Can you help in 5 minutes?
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

The toner should just pull straight out of the machine, you don't need to access the "green lever" until you get it out

Dude, I know that. But it got stuck somewhere on LEFT side (our left side if we face the printer).
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

Will it go back in?

In the link that you sent, read #4. It says -- Push down the green lock lever and take the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. I don't have green lever.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
It's inside the printer. Now I need to replace the cartridge and for that, I need to take out the drum/cartridge unit.
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

You may not see the green lock lever until you get the drum/toner assembly out. Step 4 shows the unit outside the printer

I have done this many times before but first time it's not coming out.
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

I'm going to try to find an exploded view of the printer for you. Maybe the drum is getting hung up on something... or are you saying the green release tab broke off inside?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I agree with your answer. Step #3 should be straight forward, i had done many times before. But it's not coming out now. The green tab is NOT broke off inside for sure. It was not there when I put the cartridge in last time.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
I am a technical person and hence know the basics. Do you think something is preventing it to get out?
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

If you have to leave, just let me know. I can look for an exploded view and send it and we can pick this up later if necessary

Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

Yeah, something is probably hanging up on it, but in order to give you a better idea of what, we'll need some sort of diagram

Let's try NOW. This is urgent for me.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Do you think this kinds of "mechanical" or physical problem would be solved remotely?
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

Well we don't do in home service.

In any case I've found the service manual for it: http://www.riocopy.com.br/arquivos/imagem/PDF_brother_service/SM_7030_7040_7045.pdf

For a physical/mechanical problem like this, all I can offer is resources and info to help you physically correct the problem. That's what we do here.

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Ok, but being technical I had gone through all these before contacting you.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Let me go. I don't think the problem you can fix remotely.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Thank you for the try though.
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

Did you see the post on cnet about this?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Technician: Wes, Consultant replied 9 months ago

It's for a different model, but it mentions the same sort of problem... no green lever so the toner/drum unit gets stuck

If you've been through all of this, then yes, you're probably going to have to take it in to be serviced.
