Brother HL 2040 Printing problem

I have a Brother HL 2040 that I use on Remote Desktop connection. Our letterhead logo either doesn't print at all now or only partially prints on this Brother. It prints fine on other printers in the office and used to print on the Brother. What's up with that?

    Thanks. We have the driver for this machine installed on our network server. There are two of these machines - both connected locally to two different machines -but using the same driver when we are logged into the remote desktop. My printer prints the logo just fine but the other person with this connected locally is having the problem.

    I don't see how it could be the driver since we both share that resource and mine is working....now I'm really stumped!

    Got it, the server (2003?) is hosting the printer and your workstation is connecting to the server using Windows Remote desktop. I don?t think it?s the driver either.

    Have you tried logging on the server locally with the same user account and trying the same print job? My first guess is that if the image is large you may be having some kind of latency issue. Post what you find out, I?ll be back on-line in a couple of hours.

Delete driver and re-install then again. If other machines work but this one then it must be the drivers. Get drivers from brothers website that way they will be up to date.

I've configured my desktop Brother HL2040 to share but I can't print from my laptop.


Make sure you've got the firewall set to allow printing on the computer working as a print server.

Another simple solution is to pick up an ethernet or wireless print server unit. It's going to cost more, but it's typically very reliable, and doesn't depend on another computer for printing.

Prints only blank pages


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Can the Brothers HL 2040 handle printing 65lb


It probably can but only from the front slot, the paper tray has to bend the paper around the roller in the front when feeding.

Sounds to me like the word doc's page size is not set to the same as your printers tray.

In word, file , page set up. page size/paper size is set to "letter" in US I think is standard, it's A4 in Oz

On printer driver check page size setting too

Contral panel, printers and faxs, RIgHT click on brother printer icon, properties, printing preferences, page size
