Brother mfc240C - not printing as expected

I just acquired the latest new imac, running OS 10.5 Leopard. When I print to my Brother printer, it prints the image out as as a thumbnail (business card size). It started to happen erratically between different applications, including Microsoft Excel (but not Word), Quark Xpress and even printing a web page from Safari. 
Because the problem is erratic, it was hard to pinpoint where exactly the problem was occurring when printing. One thing's for sure. I now know it's the printer, as all the apps it was working fine with before, is now printing thumbnail size. I've tried re--installing the drivers, and tried printing from other apps.I even checked the Brother site to see if there were any updates for the driver, but there weren't any. 
Help please! I have a deadline!!!

    I found a fix for this. Went back on the Brother solutions site and it states that new and updated printer drivers are available on theOS 10.5 Leopard install disks. Once I downloaded and installed, it seemed to fix the problem with Quark and Safari. I'm still stumped on Excel. Still not printing at all.

try to print and in the print window click the blue button on the left of the top box with hopefully two arrows this should give you the option to choose a printer, follow the prompts when the brother is connected and on and you should get there.

Are they genuine Brother ink cartridges? Some Brother models won't accept generic or non-OEM ink. Try replacing them with genuine Brother cartridges.

Tally 8008 not printing mac OSX 10.5.6 leopard


Found a solution. We connected 8008 printer to imac running Tiger & we can now print via network on any of our emacs running Leopard. Not ideal but at least we can now use the printers. I would still love a dedicated driver to work direct but I suppose this will do for now.
