SOURCE: HL 2140 does not print
This is a common problem to your brother printer model 2140. You need to turn off your printer and take out the toner. Look for the side and you will see a small hole on both sides. This is the sensor. You need to cover it with electrical tape.
Here is a detailed video on how to do it:
Good luck and hope this helps you.

Too many things can cause that, you remove the drum and run the blue tab back and forth to clean the corona about 20 times, the fuser may not be heating and you need a new fuser, Feel for heat in the back door or at the exit, If the drum is used up you open the front door and press go until the lights flash to reset. Make sure the paper tray is fully inserted, this one is picky. You may need a shop to diagnose.

SOURCE: prints only blank pages
I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".
This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

First, please make sure there is no error message displayed on the LCD screen of the printer
Now we will check the status of your printer in the printers menu in the control panel.
The printer’s status should be set to “ready”
If the printer is “paused” simply clear the print queue, right click on the printer and select “resume printing”.
If the printer says “offline”, follow these steps.
Your printer status should be back to ready now and you are able to print.
