You have to install the drivers for your Computer to recognize your printer. Sometimes this is done automatically with Plug n Play but it depends on the device. Load the disc that came with the printer, this will load your drivers. Then click on Printers on the desktop and click add new printer. This will solve your problem.

Printer will not print color. All ink cartridges are Canon, and all printer settings are set to color. This printer has had no problems with color before. When I perform a nozzle check no color prints.

Hi I'm sorry say your machine will need a new print head and they are not easy to fit my suggestion will be to contact brother by email and ask if they will suggest a repairer in your area
but I would look at replacing it with a canon or a hp

My brother hl2140 won't print. Yes - it is on and plug is secured. I have attached this printer to a new computer. I have gone into control panel and the hl shows that I have 7 documents ready to print. ...


Try this. Cancel all the documents that are waiting to be printed in the control panel. then delete the printer int the control panel. Click here to go to brothers website to download the correct driver for your operating system. Install the driver you downloaded. While installing it will ask you to plug the USB in and to make sure that the printer is on. When you plug the USB back in make sure that it is in a USB port that you have not plugged it into already. and you should be all set :) Best of luck to You :)
