First of all, I checked the answers given here, but nothing worked; everytime I turned on the unit, the red light flashed that the printer was out of paper.
From the Brother's HL-2070 manual, in the troubleshooting section: take out the toner cartridge from the front of the machine (be careful, any black toner powder that come off may be very difficult to clean up). I took the toner cartridge to the sink.
There is a blue slide along the top of the unit that will clean the corona wire if you slide it back and forth, from one end to the other (toner/dust can become caked on the wire over time; sliding the slider back and forth simply knocks the caked off 'stuff' off of the wire).
Replace the toner cartridge; it worked fine for me. I was immediately able to print.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect
the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and
reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the
software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it
should again work properly.
this helps. Bud
Go to control panel and printers and faxes on your laptop and when you see the printer icon for the printer, right click on it and left click on use printer ONLINE. make sure then that the laptop is communicating with the printer.
My guess is the problem is with Firefox trying to print the page and not the printer. Try to go to File > Print Preview and see if it looks normal there. If not, I have 3 suggestions:
Try to change the "Page Options" or "Scale" under the Print Preview
Try to install and use the Firefox Add-On "IE Tab". This gives you the choice to display the page with Internet Explorer, while still using Firefox. You can turn on IE Tab, and then try to print. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419
