How to Replace Cartridge(s)

Here's the fast and proper way to replace the toner cartridge in your Brother HL-2040 printer:

  1. Open the printer's front cover, then pull out the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly.
  2. Place it on a flat, sturdy surface—preferably with a drop cloth or disposable paper to catch any spills.
  3. Push down the lock lever and remove the used toner cartridge from the drum unit.
  4. Unpack the new toner cartridge. Use both hands to rock the cartridge gently from side to side up to six times. This distributes the toner more evenly inside.
  5. Pull off the protective cover from the cartridge. Insert the new cartridge into the drum unit firmly until it locks into place.
  6. Clean the primary corona wire of the drum unit, then place the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back inside the printer.
  7. Close the front cover.
