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!!!

Brother mfc240c will not print

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.

Mac OS 10.5 Leopard

First, install "epson easyprint" from the epson website. Its found under drivers and support for your unit.

Then click ok on that error message about "driver dealing with..."
After you click ok on the message, you will get another window where you will find a "manual print" button. Click on this manual print button and this will take you to the next window where you have to select "A4 as the paper size" and "CD/DVD as the paper type and paper path" . After this, click print... it should start to print! This is just a workaround until epson gets a patch for leopard for print cd........hopefully

Brother is totally fucked up under Leopard, found so far no chance to fix it.  Brother's own printer drivers are 10.4 only -- lame
