Cancel printing is on and will not turn off after canceling when pushing the stop/exit button. i cannot print anything else. when i turn it off and unplug it then plug it back in for 1 min and turn it back...


You did not list your model but if it is an MFC series then try turning off the machine and then hold down the clear/stop button while turning the power back on. Continue holding the button for a few seconds. This procedure will clear whatever may be stuck in memory. This works on most Brother models but may not work on yours.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Resetting Blinking Toner Light HL-2140


Here is the procedure for resetting the Toner flashing light on Brother HL-2140 (sources for other answers here and self testing - specific to HL-2140)
  • Open the front cover and leave open.
  • Turn the printer off.
  • Hold the "white button" while turning the printer on. (All panel lights should be on.)
  • Release the "white button".
  • Press the "white button" 2 times (Pause, wait for all lights to come on.)
  • Press the "white button" 5 times. (All lights to come on again, then go out.)
  • Cancel "maintenance driver" install, if prompted
  • Close cover.
  • Power cycle printer.

This will:
  • reset the toner light (stop blinking)
  • restore the printing darkness (when toner light flashes, printer prints lighter to save toner)
  • keeps the printed page counts and drum life info

BROTHER MFC8840D IS THERE A WAY TO SHOW THAT I SENT A FAX TO A SPECIFIC PHONE NUMBER AT THE END OF MAY?


Possibly. The Fax Journal has the last 200 faxes (incoming or outgoing). Press Menu then select Fax (up and down arrows). Press Set, and use the navigation keys until Setup Reports or Report Settings appears. Then press Set and use the navigation keys to find the Act. Interval or Journal Period. Press Set again and a length of time for the Journal (anything but off). Press Set again. (If you use the 7 day count-down, you will get additional queries for day of week and time of day for the start of the count-down.) Press Stop/Exit and the Activity Report will print when 200 faxes are in memory, the memory is full or the desired time frame. (The setting of 50 faxes will print at every 50 faxes.) After printing the report, these entries will be deleted.

I hope this helps.

(if the report was already generated, you won't get the old entries. Similarly if the memory was cleared after an Out Of Memory error, you won't find this entry. If Fax Storage was on, you may be able to actual get the original Fax. Menu > Fax > Remote Fax Opt > Print Fax or Print Document. Then Start and when all stored Faxes print hit Stop/Esc.)

I have a Brother MFC-210. It was working well. When I moved and hooked it back up. It was printing some pages fine and then it started printing double like 3d. Started with a few words. Now the whole page...


Check the alignment. Press the key for Ink or Ink Management on the Control Panel. Select Test Print (the up/down arrows) and hit Menu/Set or Set. Select Alignment and press Menu/Set or Set. Next hit Mono (Black) Start. Look at the Alignment Sheet that prints out. Press 1 if the number 5 sample matches line 0 for both 600 and 1200 DPI samples. Press 2 and then the number for the line that matches that matches the 0 sample.
Then press Stop/Exit. Repeat this for color printing by using the Color button.

You should also check the Print Quality. (Very similar menu choices - just choose Print Quality after choosing Test Print but you only need to hit the Color button to print the test sheet.) This will initiate a cleaning cycle for any poor quality ink test pattern. You will need to respond Yes or No for the print quality and each ink (if you answered No). If you do the cleaning 5 times with problems, replace the cartridges in question.

Finally try cleaning the printhead (Press Ink or Ink Management and then 1 for cleaning) If 5 repeats do not help, contact Brother support, the print head may need to be replaced. (Unfortunately, this isn't the only reason for the problem. Once you put in a print head, it isn't returnable. It could be that the entire printer is ready for recycling.)

I hope this helps.

Brother 420CN printer will not print black ink. Have replaced the cartridge and after several cleaning cycles, it still will not print properly. Test Print shows colors are fine but black ink is hit and...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Someone got printer printing the same 300 or so


Assuming you're running Windows, go into the control panel, select printers, select your printer, double click on it and cancel all print jobs.
Possibly, someone wanted 3 copies and hit 300 or, someone's messing around. Look at what is being printed 300 times, and you should be able to figure who ran the print job.

Print Report for Specific Date


I haven't found a way to print a TX report for a specific date. However there is a way to set the machine to generate an activity report at a certain time each day. Press "MENU" , 2-4-2, and you should be able to select the interval for your report by pressing the "OR" key (24 HOURS in this case). Hit "MENU" again and then enter the time you wish the report to print (24 hr format). "MENU", "STOP" and that should give you a report you can use each day.
