Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

Brother HL-2140 won't print from Firefox (or IE)

I just bought and installed my Brother HL-2140 printer. It seems to print fine from all programs except Firefox and Internet Explorer (both the latest versions). When I print, nothing happens, no error lights come on, no error messages on my computer, just the little picture of the printer in the task bar that when I hover over it says "0 job(s) pending for Owner". When I double-click on it to open the print queue or right-click and click "Open print queue" nothing happens. I need to be able to print from Firefox because I print a good deal of my emails and I get my email through a web-based service. Your help is greatly appreciated!

OK, you need to check your settings and make sure you have choosen the correct printer to be used...delete all other printers that you make have on the same page...get rid of them....they like to cause problems, best to delete. Just keep the Brother printer...I have an All-In-One....and I LOVE it, I had the same problem just 2 days ago, because I updated my Internet Explorer!!

I recently installed the Brother HL-2140 to my computer, everything came through, but I am not able to print. Rose


Set your new HL-2140 as the default printer. Go to Control Panel, Click Printers and Scanners tab, and set your Brother HL-2140 as your default printer. You may have other printer as the default printer currently. Check your connections again. Connect it to another USB port as the current port might not be responding due to connection contact problem.

Brother HL-2140 Corona Clean Error Won't Go Away!!!


The error message is misleading. The printer wants a new toner cartridge.

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.

HL-2070N will not properly print


My guess is the problem is with Firefox trying to print the page and not the printer. Try to go to File > Print Preview and see if it looks normal there. If not, I have 3 suggestions:
  1. Try to change the "Page Options" or "Scale" under the Print Preview
  2. Try to install and use the Firefox Add-On "IE Tab". This gives you the choice to display the page with Internet Explorer, while still using Firefox. You can turn on IE Tab, and then try to print. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1419
  3. Upgrade to Firefox 3.
