    By Mike Josiah and the Technical Staff at Uninet

    https://static.ombe.com/slir/w235/forums/200/rickpics/BrotherTN-227_HL-L3290Toner.jpgThe Brother HL-L3290 printer engine is based on a color 25ppm, 2400 x 600 DPI laser engine. These machines have a first page out in less than 8.5 seconds, and come standard with 64Mb of memory. The HL-L3290 series also has duplexing built in. New printers in this series come with CMYK starter toner cartridges which are rated for 1000 pages.

    There are two different toner cartridges available for these machines. The TN-223 cartridges are rated for 1,300 pages (1400 BK), and the TN-227 cartridges are rated for 2300 pages (3,000 pages BK). The drum unit (C,M,Y,BK) which will be covered in separate instructions is rated for 18,000 pages. There are different part numbers for these cartridges depending on your region. In North America they are as follows:

    STD HY Drum
    Cartridges: TN223C,M,Y,BK TN227C,M,Y,BK DR233CL

    Figure A shows the toner cartridge with the developer roller and chip covers.

    MFC-L3710DW

    Required Tools

    Toner approved vacuum.

    Phillips Head Screwdriver

    Small Common jewelers Screwdriver

    1) Vacuum the exterior of the cartridge.

    2) On the GEAR/CHIP SIDE, (Left side with reset gear on opposite side), remove the two screws. See Figure 1

    Figure 1
    Figure 1



    3) Press in on the two tabs, remove the chip holder (Two separate pieces). See Figure 2

    Figure 2
    Figure 2



    4) Remove the remaining screw and end cap. See Figures 3 & 4

    Figure 3
    Figure 3



    Figure 4
    Figure 4



    5) Remove the 4 gears. See Figure 5

    Figure 5
    Figure 5



    6) Using a large flat head screwdriver, pry off the developer roller gear lock. Remove the gear. See Figures 6 & 7

    Figure 6
    Figure 6

    Figure 7



    7) Remove the white inner end cap. See Figure 8

    Figure 8
    Figure 8



    8) On the reset gear side of the developer roller remove the 2 screws and remove the end cap. Note that the reset gear stays with the end cap! See Figures 9 & 10

    Figure 9
    Figure 9



    Figure 10
    Figure 10



    9) Remove the black inner end cap. See Figure 11

    Figure 11
    Figure 11



    10) Remove the E ring from the developer roller shaft. See Figure 12

    13) Clean out any remaining toner from the hopper. Pay special attention to the feed roller to make sure itís clean, See Figure 16

    Figure 16
    Figure 16



    14) Vacuum the doctor blade clean. The doctor blade can be easily cleaned by blowing the excess toner off, and wiping down with a lint free cloth. Be very careful not to leave any lint behind! See Figure 17

    Figure 17
    Figure 17



    15) Inspect the developer roller felts. If they are compressed, (shiny) rough them up with a small screwdriver. See Figure 18

    Figure 18
    Figure 18



    16) Clean the developer roller with a lint free cloth. Do not use any harsh chemicals to clean this roller. Any type of alcohol cleaner will strip the conductive coating off the roller.

    Figure 19

    Figure 22
    Figure 22



    21) 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.

    22) Install the white inner developer roller end cap and screw on the gear side. See Figure 23

    Figure 23
    Figure 23



    23) Install the five gears as shown. See Figure 24

    Figure 24
    Figure 24



    24) Install the small gear lock on the developer roller shaft. See Figure 25

    Figure 25
    Figure 25



    25) Install the larger gear side end cap, and screw. See Figure 26

    Figure 26
    Figure 26

    In my opinion, the problem might be with the cartridge. Please remove the cartridge and then again install it. If it does not work then I will suggest

    The inkjet printer does not recognize the cause and solution of the cartridge

    There is no simple answer to this...there can be many causes. It can get triggered by just about anything from cartridge declared empty by the printer

    Compatible VS Original

    It's better to consider your financial situation.
