Normal 0 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 withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Will not Print online Coupos


Just fixed my Brother HL-5140. Hope this helps :) I have struggled for years and finally figured this out from the Brother website.

If you are unable to print coupons from the Internet the print processor
setting in the driver needs to be changed. To change the setting,
1. Open Printers and Faxes.

2. Right mouse click on the Brother printer and left click Properties.

3. Click on the Advanced tab.

4. Click the Print Processor button.

5. Under Print Processor, select WinPrint.

6. Under Default Datatype, make sure RAW is selected. Click OK.

7. Back on the Advanced tab remove the check next to Keep Printed
Documents.

8. Click Apply and OK.

Try printing the coupons again.

Keep Printed Documents


If you have a Brother printer please change the following:

Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes -> Right click on your selected printer and select "properties"

Go to Advanced tab -> Print Processor

Change the settings from "BRMFC" print to "WinPrint" and set default to "raw" and Click Apply

Now go back to uncheck "Keep Printed Documents" and attempt to print the coupon.

I am a big fan of coupons.com, their tech support guy sent me these instructions. Good Luck!!
