Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer

2 Answers

It used to work fine but now the HL2040 will only print one copy even when I select multiple copies on the control-P menu on Microsoft Word 2007. I've done all the Brother software and firmware downloads.

Recommend uninstalling driver and reinstalling. Get the latest drivers from brother.com

This could be a whole slew of issues, and it doesn't sound printer related, but computer related.

My friend has one and you will have to go to the fax mode and then switch it on again and change the number from 1 to 10
this should do it

Why do multiple copies sometimes staple together as one set instead of multiple sets?


I don't know how/why, but if you set the Print settings (main print screen) to non-collate and the Printer Properties (clicking in to get to the staple option) to collate, it works correctly, stapling each set individually.

Excel Print Queue Delay Problem


It has to do with your collate settings on your printers properties and the collate settings on your first print screen that shows up when you go to print. First when you are ready to print select print from the file menu in excel then go to the properties of the printer you are going to use and make sure the finishing properties are set the way you want them. Hit ok then you will be back at the first print screen. Here uncheck the collate box and then print. I am unsure but this may work. I had a similar problem a while ago and I know if I played with the collate check box it would print much faster other wise each time it was going to print a copy of the document it had to resend all the information again to the printer, which took forever.

Getting more copies at once


In almost any windows application there is a command in the FILE dropdown menu that is labeled "Print..." It's usually right above "Print Preview". To print multiple copies click "File" then click "Print..." and you will get the following Windowa63a80c.jpg Just select the number of copies you want by clicking the up/down arrows where it says "Number of copies"

My hp 1320 prints only one copy


Windows may have eaten its baby again- that is, the driver for that printer.
Open the Control Panel, then Printers and Faxes, delete any listing for that model of printer, make sure the printer is on and connected, then reboot your system. This will force Win to 'find' the printer and install an uncorrupted driver for it.

Can't print multiple copies


On your Brother's drop- down menu, left click on PRINTING PREFERENCES . On the BASIC tab, choose the number of prints in the COPIES box, then left click on APPLY. If that does not work, go into PROPERTIES, left click on the SECURITY tab, and check that you have authorization to run multiple prints. Also, check your PRINT SPOOLING mode to make sure it is activated, and check authorizations in OFFICE 2007- it may be set to restrict multiple color pints.
