I have a Brother HL-2040 laster printer and I now have ink specks when I print. Not exactly the same each time. Sometimes more, sometimes less. It is only on one part of the paper


May need to run the aligment programs of the printer to re-align the cartidges back in line. Sometimes may have to do-it everytime that you load a new batch of paper.

My Brother hl-2040 is just running paper through, even after power cycles, and won't stop. How can I purge its memory to be able to start printing an acutal document again?


disconect the usb from the printer, then power cycle.
cancel all jobs on the computer. reconnect the usb, if you send a job and the problem starts again i'd try a new cable

Paper light keeps coming on, it won't print. we have 3 computers...if we reset(unplug) everything we can get a few prints


Press the go button 3 times and check the last errors, sometimes you need to run the blue tab on the drum back and forth about 20 times and blow out the area below the opening for that tab with a can of air. Usually solves that problem.

HL-2040 printer won't function


You can't hook up two HL 2040 with 1PC. It will make your PC crazy and don't know which printer should go for printer.
You must remove 1 HL2040. After that you should be fine.
