If the power cables are all the way in there and you don't, for example, have the power cable plugged into a wall outlet tied to a light switch that's off, or into a powerstrip that's off, ... this is a good time to figure out if you're under warranty. If you can't get power to it, there's not a lot of options or things to try.

How to turn off a brother printer HL-2140. Simply use the power switch?


Sure a power switch shut off will not hurt anything but save you on eletric bills. Shoot you could even pull the plug and still get away with nothing happening but if you do not plug it back in then you know what happends then? You just dont print. So sure power button will put you in some great ECOLogistics thats for sure.

Thanks for the question, please do feel free to leave some postive feedback to keep these questions being anwered free.
