Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Won't print. Red light blinking

I have been using 1440 with a Mac 9.2 OS. Worked but when I went to print the printer would not stop printing and last pages had some odd numbers on them. I finally went to Mac finder and clicked on BR printer and then clicked on delete copies which it did but it held final one. I restarted everything but gave me a message that spools contained unprinted pages and I could not get them off even though I hit delete. Now red light is blinking when I start up.

Reboot your computer and power down your printer. Leave them off for about 30 minutes or even overnight. (In other words, leave the computer and printer off more than a few minutes--some of the printers take more than 5 minutes before they'll clear their memories--a quick reboot won't do it.)

When deleting print copies it is safer to use the delete button on the printer than to delete from your computer, as then the copies don't get hung up in spooling.

I've had to do this a few times with Vista and printers, as things get held up in spooling on a regular basis.

I've been scanning to my computer w/ my cannon mp240 and suddenly cannot. It still scans and prints and prints from my computer, but the scanning to computer has stopped. I have a MAC and it's worked...


The printer drivers for the MP240 are intergrated in the Mac OS X.
If software for your printer was included with the Mac OS X installation, check the printer manufacturer's website for updated versions. Install a printer driver available from the manufacturer's website only if it is a newer version than the one included with Mac OS X.

The alarm light is on and it won't print


Check the back of the printer. Open up the back door. There is a barely visible 2nd door which you need to open. Check to see if there is a paper jam behind this 2nd door. Often this is the problem and clearing this back paper jam will clear the red alarm light.
