Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Prints BLANK after dropping prn.

The printer slid onto its face from desktop computer height of about one feet on to carpet floor, while off. Now it prints blanks w/o err. msg.
When text files are printed directly from USB connected computer, pages come out blank.
It does not demo print. "Demo button pushed while switched-on" action yields a blank page, it supposed to print firmware info...
I changed the toner, still the same.
I reinstalled firmware and driver and other software (see br. site), still the same.
Printer is a few months old, lightly used at home.

It must be a seating/contact problem. Yet I expect brother to give an error msg.

Where are the contacts inside and how do I get access to them other than disassembling all covered areas?! Cable connections, PCB's, schematics?!

This is the first bro. prn. I buy. Are these printers any good?

    Just got this printer HL-2140 on Christmas Eve from Newegg. It has not worked from day one, just spits out blank pages. Called tech support, and they sent out a new toner/cartridge assembly, still prints blanks. I reloaded drivers, blanks still. Getting frustrated. If I don't get this resolved soon, I'm going to say SEE YA BRO'

Dropped my Iomega GDHDU2 not from a great height onto a carpeted floor and now it is not working on my laptop. It doesn't make the usual start up noise and doesn't show up in 'My Computer'

the case is ****, and extremely difficult to open. I was expecting to break off the plastic tabs keeping it together - but I also broke the SATA port plastic on the circuit board. I threw out the junked case, bought a new external casing from staples (with screws! and aluminum!) and the hard drive is just fine. from all the posts I've seen around - the Iomega case is the problem, not the hard drive.

You need a hand alignment at the very least. Sounds like your sweep arm is getting stuck on other objects in the face.

Cannot load a tape into camcorder. I have tried two separate tapes, neitehr of them load in to the camcorder. A message comes up: "remove the cassette" when it has not even been loaded properly.

I had the same problem. Checked the site and found a solution of dropping the camera onto a carpeted floor from about 1/2m to 1m. Thought that it was bullsh1t but was desperate and so tried it. worked a treat!!!

Hope this helps.

Lightly Dropped Seagate 100GB External Hard Drive

Unfortunately, this probably means the read/write heads were jarred and can no longer function properly. That's usually fixable, but it's a very expensive fix because the parts are inside the hard drive and the data surfaces are very delicate... Most people are better off simply replacing the hard drive unless the data is absolutely vital.
