SOURCE: Printer prints all pages on one sheet of paper

what application are you printing from? also, can you do a print preview to see if there are more than one page? if that works, then your printer mechanism is not following the driver information from the print queue manager.

SOURCE: Brother HL-2140 printing black pages.

Hi Nacardi,
Could be bad toner (toner sitting on shelf for too long). Or the drum could have been over exposed. The drum is light sensitive.

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.

SOURCE: for the HL-2140 Brother printer, the red error

Too many things can cause that, you remove the drum and run the blue tab back and forth to clean the corona about 20 times, the fuser may not be heating and you need a new fuser, Feel for heat in the back door or at the exit, If the drum is used up you open the front door and press go until the lights flash to reset. Make sure the paper tray is fully inserted, this one is picky. You may need a shop to diagnose.

Can i set the Brother HL-2140 to print double sided. I cannot find it ?


The Brother HL-2140 does not include duplex printing. The only option for double sided printing with this model is to print odd numbered pages, then manually replace the paper into the tray and print the even numbered pages in a second set.

Regards,
Dan

How do we cancel prints on Brother HL-2140


You cancel prints in the computer.

If you tried to print something that is still pending and you need to get it out of the print queue follow these instructions:

On the lower right side of your computer screen near the clock area - look for the printer icon (picture of your printer) Right click with your mouse on top of the picture of the printer and choose "properties" from the drop down list. Click on the name of the document that you wish to cancel and click file and click on cancel document. You can also click on the name of the document you want to cancel and then right click on it again and choose cancel from the drop down list.

You may need to choose cancel all documents to get rid of any which are pending.

Trouble with pdf docs


If your pdf's are saved on your pc or mac and they print fine, then it is probably a problem with firewall or av. allowing printing from internet. Check PDF program settings for port number to exclude or accept in firewall or check firewall and add pdf program to list of exceptions.
