  • Remanufacturing the Brother HL L8360 Series Toner Cartridges

    https://static.ombe.com/slir/w211/forums/200/rickpics/josiah_Brother_HL-1110__TN1000/Brother_N-1000.jpg By Mike Josiah and the Technical Staff at Uninet

    The Brother HL-1110 printer engine is based on a 20 ppm monochrome, 2400 x 600 DPI laser engine. The machines come standard with 1Mb of memory, and all run off a 200 MHz processor. With an extremely low cost for this machine, these machines have become very popular.

    The toner cartridges do not have a reset chip on them, but do have a reset gear that must be positioned properly for the machine to accept it as a new cartridge. The proper reset position of the gear will be covered later in this instruction. Starter cartridges do not have this gear. It must be added to the cartridge in order for the printer to accept the cartridge.

    Cartridges used worldwide for this series are as follows:

    TN1000
    TN1010
    TN1020
    TN1030
    TN1040
    TN1050
    TN1060
    TN1070.

    The printers in this series are the:

    HL-1110
    HL-1110
    HL-1112
    HL-1118

    Lint free cotton cloths

    1) Vacuum the exterior of the cartridge. Be careful not to damage the developer roller as it is exposed.

    2) Remove the fill plug from the toner cartridge. Dump the remaining toner and vacuum/blow out the cartridge. See Figure 1

    5) On the gear side, remove the two screws from the end cap. See Figure 5

    Figure 5
    Figure 5



    6) Pry up the tab and remove the end cap. See Figures 6 & 7

    Figure 10



    10) Remove the developer roller. See Figure 11

    Figure 11
    Figure 11



    11) Remove the two screws on the Doctor Blade. See Figure 12

    Figure 12
    Figure 12



    12) Remove the Doctor Blade. See Figure 13

    Figure 13
    Figure 13



    13) Carefully vacuum/blow the cartridge clean. Use only low pressure air! (High pressure air can cause leaks in the seals). Be sure to rotate the foam feed roller so it is fully cleaned. See Figure 14

    Figure 14
    Figure 14



    14) Carefully wipe the Doctor Blade off with a clean lint free cloth. Be careful not to bend it and do not use any chemicals.

    15) Make sure the DB seals and developer roller seals are clean and not damaged. See Figure 15

    Figure 15
    Figure 15



    16) Clean the developer roller with a lint free cloth. A dedicated developer roller cleaner is fine to use.

    17) Re-install the doctor blade and two screws. See Figure 16

    Figure 16
    Figure 16



    18) Re-install the cleaned developer roller long end to the gear side. See Figure 17

    Figure 17
    Figure 17



    19) Install the E-ring onto the developer roller shaft. See Figure 18

    Figure 18
    Figure 18



    20) Clean the gears, making sure that they have no toner on them. This is a good time to also check the gear shafts to make sure there is enough grease. If the shafts appear dry, or the grease is contaminated with toner, clean the shaft and inside of the gear. Replace the grease with white lithium grease.

    21) Install the gears as shown. If this was a starter cartridge the reset gear will not be present and must be installed. The reset gear must be set as shown or it will not work properly. For the feed roller gear you may have to slide the roller up so the gear fits. See Figures 19 & 20

    Figure 19
    Figure 19



    Figure 20
    Figure 20



    22) Install the small developer roller end cap. See Figure 21

    Figure 21
    Figure 21



    23) Install the large gear side end cap and two screws. See Figure 22

    Figure 22
    Figure 22



    24) Install the fill plug side end cap and screw. See Figure 23

    Figure 23
    Figure 23



    25) Fill the cartridge with toner for use in the Brother HL-L1110. See Figure 24

    Figure 24
    Figure 24



    26) Replace the fill plug. See Figure 25

    Figure 25
    Figure 25



    27) Wipe the cartridge down to remove any remaining toner dust.

    28) Install the developer roller cover. This is important as the developer roller is exposed and is easily damaged or contaminated.
