Brother HL-2240 Toner light stays on after fitting new toner

Brother HL-2240 Toner light stays on after fitting new toner

I found this and it worked great.

1. Power Unit off

2. Open front cover

3. Press and hold GO and turn power on

4. When all 3 lights lit release and press GO twice

5. All lights turn solid

6. With all solid, press GO 5 times

7. Ready light Goes red

8. Close door and you're all set

9. Some say a power off is required, it doesn't hurt :)      


If you wanted to buy me a beer for these instructions please use paypal below, I have had a great response and thank you for the donations, it all helps :)
      

If my instructions have helped and saved you a call out, Buy me a cool beer :)

  9. I wish I came across this last week. I needed to print out my 113 page thesis but "ran out of toner" mid-print. I used this fix and just printed the entire thesis again, every page looks fine.

  23. I work the front desk at a hotel and we've been without our printer for 2 days because of this problem. We've had to hand write EVERYTHING including my night audit. But now, thanks to you, my friend, I have a working printer again! Thank you so much!
