Printer not printing documents HL-2140 model

I have a HL-2140 laser printer which is not printing document. The toner light is on permanent glow and the ready button (blue) will not stay on.
Does this mean that when the printer is out of toner it just stops altogether?

thanks

When the toner light is on this means the toner cartridge is empty and ned to be replaced. After its replaced it will start working normally again.

I tried printing a document, and it printed all the pages except for the last page. I have tired to repeatedly print the last page and it will not print. The toner light is on, so does that mean I have...


hi,
first of all maybe your file has a problem. DO NOT CHANGE your toner. Try to print only last page, or copy the content of the last page in the new document and the print it. Sometimes the printer can not recognise some files correctly and that is the major problem

When i print someting the copy comes out with spots


I have the same printer and that does not happen. Is this for all documents? And from all applications? It could just be one document. Sounds like it is printing in draft mode. When you print, go into your print settings and make sure the resolutions is at 600dpi. Also good to remove the toner and shake from side to side gently and re-insert.

Printer sqeaks loudly when printing. Also there


Sqeaks are hard to fix over the computer but if the black spots are random change the toner cartridge. If they are 3 or 4 to the page change the drum.

When printing documents, the printer pauses and flashes "drum" light. toner reads at 100% and "drum" reads at next to 0%. what is the problem and how do i fix it? thanks


It's time to replace the drum, but if quality is still OK, then you open the front door, press the go button until the lights flash and the drum life will be reset.
