Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer

1 Answer

LED lights All my LED lights are flashing - we had a power outage the other day and I'm assuming this results from that. Your web site says I have a CPU runtime error and that I need service. Is this a big deal? did I fry my printer?

Re: LED lights


If you see any of these service call indications, turn off the power switch, wait a few seconds, and then turn it back on and try to print again.


    They will tell you if it is fried

Unit powered off. I unplugged for 10 secs, replugged in. Unit powered on numerous lights flashed in sequence and went out. Power light was last light on. It flashed several times then went out.

It's trying to tell you something. Look up the series of flashes in your manual and see what it's trying to tell you. If you don't have a manual, go to the manufacturer's web site and see if you can download one.

We had a power outage last night and now every light on the printer is flashing. I have shut down everything, reconnected, uninstalled and reinstalled.

turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should reset printing formats.
lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

Won't power up

I fixed it! Instead of 20 minutes I unplugged it for about 4 hours and everything is working fine. It's a moody ol' girl.

According to the brother site, that means that the printer needs servicing. I talked to a local service center and they recommended chucking the machine--any repair is likely to cost almost as much as a new printer.

It's pretty disappointing.

1. Turn printer off
2. Press the left 2 buttons down and continue holding them down while turning the power button on. (all 3 are now pressed down)
3. In 3 or 4 seconds, the paper feed (jam) LED light begins to flash. (middle button)
4. Within 3 seconds as the paper feed button LED still flashes, release all 3 buttons together and immediately press down the ink cleaning button (left) and continue to hold down for about 10 - 20 seconds. As soon as the cleaning docking button LED flash, release it. That's it! You are now reset and ready to go.
NOTE: This is a strict timimg procedure and must be done fairly precisely in order for it to work. It may require several attempts for it to work for you. does work! Happy printing!
