Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

2 Answers

Hi, i'm trying to set up and install my new brother HL-2140 laser printer using the installation Disk that i received with the printer. The problem is that the installation is interupted because it says Microsoft doesn't recognize the software and then i get a message "the file 'BH2140.PDD' on the brother laser printer driver disk is needed". Type the path where the file is located. But the file won't load. I've downloaded new driver from the web too. Same problem. I'm running Windows XP Pro.

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 printer very slow printing.


It sounds like you haven't completely removed the old print driver. To do so, you must take the following steps:

  1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
  2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.
    If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Another way or removing the printer driver is this:

1. Delete the printer from control panel -> printers
2. Open Services.msc and stop and start the Print Spooler service
3. Open Print Management(Open command prompt, type in printmanagement.msc or type print management in to the start menu search box)
4. In Custom Filters -> All Drivers right click the printer driver you want to remove and select Remove Driver Package
5. Install new printer driver.

Now that you've removed the printer driver, you can go ahead and manually install the new printer driver.

To manually install you must follow the prompts carefully.
Follow the instructions in this link:
http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-install-local-printer

At the install the printer driver section, choose have disk and locate the printer driver that you want to be associated with this printer you are installing.

This should solve your problem.
