Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
Did it work previously, or is it a new installation? Open control panel/ printers, and ensure it appears.
Ensure you have it selected, when you go to print, if you have any other printer(s) connected.
Did you install the correct driver? there ar 2, 1 for parallel connection and 1 for USB.
Is anything flashing or lit up on the control panel, other than the ready lamp? It should go through its setup and heating process, before finally lighting the ready light.
Powering on and off could reset any possible error problem, or attend the problem indicated.
I assume you do have it switched on! The switch on the right side down low?
By pressing the start button 3 times, it should print a test page. If that prints, you have something external to the printer as a problem, most likely.
