Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

My Brother HL-2240 my printer started going crazy, printing one page over and over . . . well over 20 by the time I took action. I am not sure what I did to trigger that, but I couldn't figure

I think I included everything in "What's your question?" above.

    I didn't realize the question box had a limited word count. I couldn't figure out how to stop it. After trying the software on my MacBook Pro (which did nothing) and pushing the green "on" button, I turned the printer off with the on/off switch. Now, when I turn it back on, it won't do anything except light up the orange LED light.

If there's an icon in the tray area that looks like a printer, double-click it to open, and click Printer, Cancel all documents. You might study the entries first to see why so many were printed. No icon? Open Control Panel, Printer, and double-click the printer for the same program.

Testimonial: "I didn't see a way to follow up with another question or comment, so I'll use this box. Thanks, J.D. but I don't see an icon in the tray area and I don't know how to open the control panel, that is, if you mean the control panel on the printer itself. But, I did figure out the problem on my own. A piece of paper was jammed inside where I couldn't see it easily. It probably got stuck where it was when I turned the printer off."

Hl 2270 won't stop printing


I would guess you were trying to print a spread sheet or similar. It has nothing to do with the reset gear on the cartridge. You need to open your printers folder on the computer, open the print queue for the printer, and cancel all documents waiting to be printed. That may take more than one try. When you are ready to print again, be sure you know what is to be printed before committing.

Brother HL 2240 ready light it on, call for print but nothing happens.


if you press the GO button 3 times very quickly (1-2-3) and you get a printout from the printer then the most likely reason is problem with the connection or the windows driver

Brother HL-2030 continually prints test pages


disconnect the printer from your pc and clear out all print jobs... leave it on and let it sit for a day... if no test page prints then the problem is your pc... if it starts printing like crazy then reset it via page 54 of the user guide if it still prints like crazy with the network cable or usb cable disconnected then you need to call brothers tech support but more than likely it shouldn't do anything... if this is the case... the problem is your pc... or your server...

FUSER TROUBLE HL 2040


This is a paper jamb problem. There is a piece of torn paper stuck in the paper path that is stopping the printed page from exiting properly.

Brother HL 2070N red paper light blinks but won't print.


Just fixed my printer issue, had the same problem, Would load 1 sheet, then jam, sometimes it won't pull the paper out of the tray, sometimes it would pull the paper to the toner area, but never into the toner, opening and slamming the paper tray while it attempted to load would usually work, but who wants to slam the tray 50 times? I was using Walgreens generic paper, 20lb, took some higher-quality 24lb HP paper and VOILA! It works every time! EVERYONE WHO IS HAVING THIS PROBLEM, CHECK THAT YOU ARE USING 24LB PAPER!!! Brother says 20-24 is acceptible, but sneaking one sheet of 20lb paper about 15 sheets down in a 20 sheet print job and it will stop at it every time, You can feel the difference, less like toilet paper and more like real paper.

24 LB PAPER! USE IT NOW AND THANK ME LATER!
