Assuming that you have the Brother HL-1440, your printer comes with 2MB installed. You may upgrade it up to 32MB maximum. However, your printer appears to use SIMM memory modules. The specs for the printer should be:
Speed: 60-80 nsec
Pin: 72-pin
Output: 32 or 36 bit

To install the memory:

1. Turn off the printer an dunplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Disconnect the interface cable from the printer.
2. Open the rear cover by unscrewing the two screws that secure the access cover and remove the cover.
3. When handling your SIMM modules, pay close attention to static electricity discharges, so be careful and hold the SIMM by the sides.
4. Install the SIMM into the slot at an angle, and then push it gently toward vertical alignment, it should click when it goes into place. DONT FORCE IT IN, be careful
5. Re-install the access cover and secure it with the screws.
6. Close the rear cover
7. Reconnect the interface cable, power cable and turn on the printer.

If all goes well, that should do it.

How do I clear the memory from my Brother HL-1440 printer?


Printer memory will clear if you simply unplug it from the wall. More likely, the old document was in your computer's disk, and you can control what prints from there.

Please try this

There's two ways to reset it

First: Soft Reset
1. Open front cover.
2. Hold down button located under LED's until all LED's are lit.
3. Release button and make sure drum LED is off, then
4. Close cover

Second: Factory Reset
1. Turn the printer off.
2. Hold in the circular button on the front panel of the printer.
3. Turn the printer back on.
4. When the DRUM light is lit by itself let go of the button.
5. Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
6. Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
This will perform a factory reset on the printer.
