Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer
The printer was working just fine. All the sudden "Printer not activated, error code - 20" came up on the computer screen. What does this mean, and how can we fix it? All cables appear to be in place, and I turned off the computer and printer hoping to reset things to no avail.

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

You have to open the door and hold the go button til all lights flash. That tells the printer it has a new drum. After that press the go button 3 times and it will print a report that shows the drum as new...
