Brother 2140 error code 20

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.

Heater temperature does not go up enough.
(Slower temperature rise rate than 2°C/5
sec. is detected.)

To cancel the trouble status follows these steps:
STEP1 .Press MENU *,2,8,6,4
STEP2.The machine beeps for approx. one second and displays “MAINTENANCE" on the
LCD, indicating that it is placed in the initial stage of the maintenance mode, a mode in which
the machine is ready to accept entry from the keys.

STEP3.Now you are inside the simulation Press 01 to reset the trouble status.

STEP4.To exit the simulation press 99

Pressing the 9 key twice in the initial stage of the maintenance mode makes the machine
exit from the maintenance mode, restoring it to the standby state.
Pressing the Stop button after entering only one digit restores the machine to the initial
stage of the maintenance mode.


If again 6E occurs try to check the halogen lamp or power supply PCB.Contact authorized technician to do this checking.

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

Brother 2140 Printer Problem


It is most likly not linked to word. Word is likly sending the prints to the wrong, obsloete or wrong copy of the printer.
When printing check to see where the doc is being sent to print.
Then go to printers to see which printer is your 2140 active and ofcourse do a test print. If the test print is good this is the correct link to your printer.
