Try turning the printer off and back on. if this doesn't help, open any cover that will open and look for paper still in the printer. many times, if you stop the printer mid-job, paper will be stuck in the back of them, and most printers will not recover until you remove the paper jam.

How to Cancel Printing in a Brother HL-2135W printer


Start by pulling the paper tray out to stop further pages being printed without jamming the printer up.

Then go onto your print queue on your computer and delete the job that is printing 50 pages.

If it dissapears then put the paper tray back in and it may print out the last page or two that were in the printer buffer.

If it does not dissapear from the print queue then turn the printer off and try to delete the job again.

Once you have ordered the job deleted then you can turn your printer back on and put the paper tray back in and allow it to continue. It should only print out the last page or two and then the job will dissapear

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.

The paper is stop in the printer


open the printer remove the toner and slowly pull the paper out. Pull in the natural printing direction of the printer, so if the printer pulls the paper from top-tray to bottom-tray when printing you should pull the paper from the bottom tray outwards

My Brother HL1230 printer prints with whole lines of text missing several times on a page and gets worse by missing more lines if printing several pages. It has a new toner cartridge. How can I sort this...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Brother HL 2140: Toner ledlight lit, stopped printing. Cleaned Coronary Wire. Toner Cartridge new - 2 weeks old.


Hi Adsl34xg,
The cartridge that comes with the printer (or starter cartridge) has a yield of 1,000 pages @ 5% coverage. It probably really has run out of toner. Replace with a new cartridge to see if you can print. A replacement cartridge should give you 2,500 pages @ 5% coverage.
