Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

1 Answer

I purchased a used one for $50

I purchased a used one with the impression it was color. Is there any way to make it a color printer? I think it's a stupid question but you never know.

No, sorry buddy. A black&white printer is exactly that. A color printer can print in black and white but not as nice as a true b&w unless you have a black ink cartridge.

time to buy a laser color printer.

Prints blacks fine, not printing grayscale.


Hi:

The answer to your question is very simple. If your document has a greyscale area, it is a color document and needs a color printer to print.

Greyscale is not light black printing, it is color in layers to give the visual impression of light black or grey.

Greyscale printing is only printable in a color printer, and does not use any black ink in its reproduction.

Sorry.

How to print when a color is empty in a HP Photosmart 6100


I have a epson printer that does the same thing no matter what i did it would not print anything.The printer companies do that so you will have to buy a new color ink cartridge just to print anything.I think its wrong but who are we to say,when cartridges are $ 50 bucks I think we should have a choice.

Go into control panel on your computer and go into printer options you should see your printer icon in there. I think If you right click on it and go either printer properties or printer preferences theres an option somewhere you can choose what type of paper your using. If you choose a thicker type of paper it might help

Lexmark quality


Do me a favor, please. Call the Lexmark office in Denmark. The quick exchange of printers is designed to use replacement printers that have been repaired and returned to the system as ETN (Equivalent to new).

However, you purchased a new printer and it has an out of box failure. You are entitled to a brand new replacement printer. The branch office should be able to help you out.

Please let me know if they do not.
