How do I clear the memory from my Brother HL-1440 printer?

Printer memory will clear if you simply unplug it from the wall. More likely, the old document was in your computer's disk, and you can control what prints from there.

Brothers Hl 1440 memory upgrade

Assuming that you have the Brother HL-1440, your printer comes with 2MB installed. You may upgrade it up to 32MB maximum. However, your printer appears to use SIMM memory modules. The specs for the printer should be:
Speed: 60-80 nsec
Pin: 72-pin
Output: 32 or 36 bit

To install the memory:

1. Turn off the printer an dunplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Disconnect the interface cable from the printer.
2. Open the rear cover by unscrewing the two screws that secure the access cover and remove the cover.
3. When handling your SIMM modules, pay close attention to static electricity discharges, so be careful and hold the SIMM by the sides.
4. Install the SIMM into the slot at an angle, and then push it gently toward vertical alignment, it should click when it goes into place. DONT FORCE IT IN, be careful
5. Re-install the access cover and secure it with the screws.
6. Close the rear cover
7. Reconnect the interface cable, power cable and turn on the printer.

If all goes well, that should do it.

HL-1440 Prints blank

Since you've already done the initial steps in troubleshooting the unit, another user serviceable solution it to replace the drum unit. Please note however that the drum unit is a expensive consumable part. It is best if you can test your unit using a known working drum unit. Beyond replacing the drum unit, the only option remaining is to have it professionally serviced. Blank print outs are classic symptoms of a main PCB failure, Laser unit failure and/or a loose wire harness. Please note that high voltage and current reside inside the printer. Please leave this tinkering to the professionals.
