Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

1 Answer

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 computer, but for whatever reason I am not seeing the brother hl 2140 printer tab when I click print.

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.

SOURCE: Printer is on but will not print.

Hello ,

First, please make sure there is no error message displayed on the LCD screen of the printer

Now we will check the status of your printer in the printers menu in the control panel.
The printer’s status should be set to “ready”
If the printer is “paused” simply clear the print queue, right click on the printer and select “resume printing”.

If the printer says “offline”, follow these steps.

  1. Clear the printer queue
  2. Shut down the computer
  3. Unplug the USB cable from your computer and your printer
  4. Unplug the power cable from the printer and wait 15 seconds
  5. Plug the USB cable back into the printer and the computer.
  6. Plug the printer’s power cable back in.
  7. Turn your computer back on.

Your printer status should be back to ready now and you are able to print.

Thanks,

Pat

Turn the printer off then on, wait a few secondes then press the GO button 3 times quickly.

The printer settings will print. It will show you how many pages have been printed as well as number of paper jams and errors etc.

I need free support to empty memory of brother HL-2140 printer


This error occurs when your printer is dealing with a particually complicated print job and cannot process it all. Try to reduce the complexity of your document or cut the print resolution. It may be worth trying to print the document in several parts if at all possible.

I hope this helps.

Can i set the Brother HL-2140 to print double sided. I cannot find it ?


The Brother HL-2140 does not include duplex printing. The only option for double sided printing with this model is to print odd numbered pages, then manually replace the paper into the tray and print the even numbered pages in a second set.

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.

Print want print


If you recently purchased it, just put it back in the box and take it back to the store for a replacement. I wouldn't bother tryng to fix it if you can get a brand new one that works the way it's supposed to.

HL 2140 does not print


Hi,

This is a common problem to your brother printer model 2140. You need to turn off your printer and take out the toner. Look for the side and you will see a small hole on both sides. This is the sensor. You need to cover it with electrical tape.

Here is a detailed video on how to do it:

Good luck and hope this helps you.
