Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

1 Answer

I did throw a Brother HL-2140 in the garbage because I thought it was the printer's fault that I couldn't connect it to my PC. Then I bought a new one, same one, and I still cannot get it to install. I downloaded the drivers, installed as I was told, plugged in the USB, turned it on, and every time I do this (at least 20 times over the last 3 weeks) I get an error msg that it is not installed. Any help???? PLEASE!

I had a similar problem with my HL-2142, but it worked after I tried the following solution.

Go to the Brother Solution Centre: CLICK HERE

Follow the on-screen instructions. Basically, it teaches you to search for the required file in the CD.

Good luck.

I recently installed the Brother HL-2140 to my computer, everything came through, but I am not able to print. Rose


Set your new HL-2140 as the default printer. Go to Control Panel, Click Printers and Scanners tab, and set your Brother HL-2140 as your default printer. You may have other printer as the default printer currently. Check your connections again. Connect it to another USB port as the current port might not be responding due to connection contact problem.

HL 2140 does not print


Hi,

This is a common problem to your brother printer model 2140. You need to turn off your printer and take out the toner. Look for the side and you will see a small hole on both sides. This is the sensor. You need to cover it with electrical tape.

Here is a detailed video on how to do it:

Good luck and hope this helps you.

The error message is misleading. The printer wants a new toner cartridge.
