Brother Hl-2040 laser printer

It prints so small, it will not print larger, I need a magnifying glass to read the print. Even when I increase the size of font on the screen of the PC it still prints tiny.

    Yes, I know how to do it in word, thru format, but in mail or on the internet, format is not an option, and I tried zooming and text size largest, but neither of these will make the actual printed size on paper larger.

Fonts and sizes are typically controlled by the application you are using. Are you sure you are increasing the font size? I've had some users confused by the zoom feature which is more like a magnifying lens. It just makes thing larger for viewing purposes and does not affect the print size. To change the actual font size of a document already created you would first highlight the text in the document. In Word (other applications are similar) you would then select Format from the main menu bar, then select Font. In the next box that appears you would click on the Font tab, and then in the Size field select a larger font size. After that click on OK and you should see your font size change. Let us know if that was your problem or not.

I think, you have selected the Fix to Page option in Print Preferences. You have to change this option.

In the Print Preferences, select the "Print at Actual Size" option.

Hope after this, you will get your problem solved.

My brother hl 2040 the tone light is on and dont allow me to print


It indicates your toner is finished and you need to replace with a new toner. Take out the toner & drum unit, on the left there is a opening which allows a beam to pass through to check toner level. There might be some toner left, for emergency printing block the opening with a piece of small paper and the light should go off for temporarily printing.

On my hl-2040 laser printer running on imac with tiger. everything seems ok but jut will not print. the go light is on but won't print


The "go" light would be on even if it wasn't connected to your computer. It simply means that the printer has reached "ready" condition.
You've not installed it correctly
