  • where can i obtain the cartridge PC-TN2000 on my printer HL2040 it appers to be an all in one package, removable from the front

    Hi, All cartridges for the Brother HL-2040 can be found here. To remove the toner cartridges on the Brother HL-2040 open the front cover of the printer. Pull out the toner cartridge and drum assembly. Once completed push down the blue lock lever and remove the toner cartridge out of the drum unit. When unpacking the new toner cartridge move the cartridge side to side allowing the ink to spread evenly in the toner cartridge. Ensure you remove the protective cover on the toner cartridge and insert the cartridge into the drum unit. The lock lever will lift automatically when inputted correctly. Gently clean the corona wire by sliding the blue tab back and forth several times. When the corona wire is cleaned, return the tab to the home position, before you put the drum unit in the printer. Once all these steps are completed, put the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly back into the printer and close the front cover of the Brother HL-2040.
