Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

HL-2030 printer won`t print labels with Word 2007

Using Mailmerge everything is OK until trying to print, when the red light shows. Resetting various ways make no difference. There is no paper jam or any other problem. Tried with different size of labels ie.18, 21 or 24 labels per page. Can somebody help please?

If it's the same as my Hl-5250DN, you have to use MP Tray mode. The MP (multi-purpose) tray is cleverly hidden on the front of my printer.

My new Brother HL-2030 is connected to my Mac OS X, present as 'idle, default' (green light so all ok). But when I try to print, in the print queue, it says it's 'printing' for about 1 second and then says...


Hi

Just set up new printer with the same name and set it as default printer. When it prints the test page, then it solves your problem. Delete the old printer icon.

HL-5370DW laser printer will not print labels. When given label number, red light comes on.


It probably wants you to insert label sheet thru the envelope slot in the front, using the cassette peels the labels off of the sheet. If there is nothing in the front slot when you select labels it will show an error.

I have a HL-5370DW and I can't get the red status light to go off and the yellow light for paper is on. I have pulled everything out and still can't get it to print


If you are using a label template this is normal. It will look for the label sheet from the front tray. Also make sure you have it set to "autoselect" for first page and the "same as first" for second.

Drum light flashing


Try resetting the drum counter:

open the front cover, press the blue button and keep it pressed until all the LEDs are lit - hold for a few seconds and then close the front cover.

Printing envelopes


Open a MS Word Document, select 'Tools' then 'Letters and mailings' then 'Envelopes and labels...'

Envelopes and Lables dialogue box opens - ensure you are on the 'envelopes' tab

Then type your recipient address in the larger white box

for standard letter envelope (DL 220m x 110mm) - Insert envelope into Brother HL-2030 manual feed, with print side up, gummed flaps down and to the left side (bring gray plastic guides in close to secure).

Then select print.

I have found that during the feed, one end of the envelope gets a little bit crumpled but overall it's still a little bit more professional looking than my handwriting.

Paper light flashes red...


I found just doing this one simple thing sorted the problem.

First take off the front cover. Pull the tabs on the side. Pull out the big toner and cartridge. Do you see the blue tab on the top shaped like an arrow/triangle? Slide the tab from right to left - reinsert toner close door.
Hope it works for you
