    that is the connetion input( USB, parallel port?)

    also check that the driver fits.

    In printers and faxes, right click on the device, hit properties, and hit test print - do you get anything? (or is that what you meant before??)
    If yes, then it is fine.
    If no, download the latest driverhttp://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc...
    and install it. Then re-connect your device and try this again.

I am trying to hook a Brother HL-2140 laser printer to a dell computer. I am unable to print since I've recently hook up the new computer. I hooked everything up like how it was on the old...


Re boot the computer with ,( wired or wireless printer?), the printer cable in the USB port in the laptop/desktop, the windows version you have will ID the device and try to load a driver, or Go to printer in the start menu and ADD a PRINTER the software will search for the attached printer. OR use the software that came with the printer, load into the Dell and follow the instructions.

I HAVE HL 2140 PRINTER. INSTALLED NEW TONER BUT NOT PRINTING GETTING WITH DRUM ERROR


It is possible that the drum needs replacing.
Print a lifetime status page, and see if it says "drum 0%". If so, replace the drum and RESET the counters by using the reset button combination.

I recently installed the Brother HL-2140 to my computer, everything came through, but I am not able to print. Rose


Set your new HL-2140 as the default printer. Go to Control Panel, Click Printers and Scanners tab, and set your Brother HL-2140 as your default printer. You may have other printer as the default printer currently. Check your connections again. Connect it to another USB port as the current port might not be responding due to connection contact problem.
