Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

HL-2040 printer won't function

I have a Deskjet935C and a Brother HL-2040 hooked up to my Mac. When I print from my desktop the Deskjet shows up as the only option. It works just fine. When I try to print from the internet or e-mail, I am offered options of the Deskjet and two HL-2040's, the first of which is followed by an exclamation point. When I select either of the two HL-2040s nothing will print. In the past my HL-2040 would come on when I booted my computer every morning. Now I have to physically turn on the switch, but still it does not work. From system preferences I select printers then start-up printers. My printer list shows a Deskjet and two Brothers. Each has a check mark. When I go to selected printer in print dialog I have an option of Deskjet and one Brother.

You can't hook up two HL 2040 with 1PC. It will make your PC crazy and don't know which printer should go for printer.
You must remove 1 HL2040. After that you should be fine.

Brother HL-2270DW printer shows offline and won't print


I had this problem today with my wireless Brother MFC-990CW using Windows 7, and when I went to see what s printing, then printer, it wasn t showing that I had checked the use printer off-line
So, on my pc I went to the start button then chose:
- Computer
- Network
- Double click your printer
- New print drivers will start to install
- Right click the icon that is a copy made of your printer setup
- Set this as your default printer
I was then able to print and my printer didn t show as being off-line anymore. This is a lot easier than having to uninstall and install the printer again using the disc.

HL-2030 printer won`t print labels with Word 2007


If it's the same as my Hl-5250DN, you have to use MP Tray mode. The MP (multi-purpose) tray is cleverly hidden on the front of my printer.
