Brother HL4040CDN Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

Print standard quality monochrome and colour documents with the compact Brother HL4040CDN. It is designed to print business documents at a consistent pace with a resolution of 2400 X 600 dpi and supports USB, Ethernet and PictBridge driven printing. The machine’s handy size at 12.5 X 16.5 X 18.7 dimensions makes it quite portable with standard desktops. It also allows easy functionality with multiple operating systems such as Windows, Linus and Mac OS.

The HL4040CDN weighs around 29.1 kg and its control panel consists of a 16 character LCD display. Coming to input capacity, the front panel features a 250 sheet input capacity tray, along with an additional 50 sheet multi-purpose tray. Some major merits are quick auto duplexing, reprint function to print a document’s multiple copies and password protected printouts. Print speed in this colour laser device goes up to 21ppm for both colour and monochrome prints.

This commercial purpose machine somehow lacks in photographic quality due to limited colour gamut or intensity but standard black and colour prints appear well formed. It is also compatible with high yield Brother HL4040CDN toner cartridges, with 5000 black and 4000 colour prints at 5% coverage ratio. Thick, recycled, envelope and labelled paper can be used while working with this printer. However, there is no proper marking to ensure the cartridges are installed in the right slots, which might lead to strange colour combinations.

Advantages:

  • Fast colour and monochrome prints
  • Rich print quality
  • Auto duplexing
  • Compact and handy size
  • Reprinting availability to ensure high volume prints
  • Optimal USB, Ethernet and PictBridge interface
  • Additional 50 sheet document feeder
  • Supports compatible Brother HL4040CDN toner cartridges
  • Password protected prints

Disadvantages:

  • No multi-functionality
  • Confusing toner installation process
  • Complex setup process
  • No mobile or WiFi printing

Cartridge Requirements:

The following toner cartridges are supported by this laserjet Brother printer:

  • Brother TN135BK Black toner
  • Brother TN135C Cyan toner
  • Brother TN135M Magenta toner
  • Brother TN135Y Yellow toner
  • Brother TN135 Multipack toners

Conclusion:

This machine is a worthwhile investment for large scale businesses because it allows auto duplexing and quick reprint jobs. Add these features with its manageable design and cost saving replacement Brother HL4040CDN toner cartridges, one finds a reliable device for business use. The drawbacks are its lack of WiFi support and complex toner installation. Go with this printer if you can cut back a little bit on colour gradients for a fast printing experience.

How to deal with dissatisfactory or smeared prints in the Brother HL4040CDN laserjet printer?

Take the following steps to improve the print quality and get rid of colour smearing in the output:

  • Check whether the printer’s drum unit is installed correctly or not. Incorrect drum unit installation may not only cause print defects but also damage the machine.
  • Make sure the machine’s belt unit is installed correctly. Belt unit transfers the toner’s colour onto the paper and it is located below the Brother HL4040CDN toner cartridges.
  • The waste toner box should also be properly installed in the machine, in order to prevent toner leakage during printing operations.
  • To improve overall colour density, perform calibration. Follow these steps to perform calibration:
    • Choose the + or - key from the control panel to choose “Colour Correction”
    • Select “Colour Correction” and press OK
    • Select “Colour Calibration” from the given options
    • Press OK to the confirmation message
  • Make sure that the colours visible on the monitor can be actually printed by the machine, by adjusting the colour through the custom setting in the driver.
  • Use only supported paper media in order to avoid not only print quality issues but also paper jams and blank output.
  • Check whether the Brother HL4040CDN toner cartridges are properly installed in their designated slots.
  • If the aforementioned steps somehow do not work, then it might be a case of a faulty drum unit. If the drum unit is found to be faulty, then follow these steps to replace the unit:
    • Switch off the printer and open its front cover by pressing the release button
    • Hold the drum unit by its handle and pull it out of the machine
    • Release the grey lever on the machine’s left hand side and remove the unit from the machine
    • Caution: Always hold the drum unit by its handles and not from its sides due to its hot temperature

    • Carefully remove the installed Brother HL4040CDN toner cartridges from the defective drum unit.
    • Unpack the new unit and carefully slide the cartridges corresponding to their slots in the unit
    • Insert the new drum unit in the machine and print a few test prints
