Sometimes, Printers spool everything into it's own memory banks. Once there it is a pain to stop sometimes.

Best solution is to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver, Also your spooler service may be having issue. If you are using Windows xp and a Lexmark or dell printer then it will happen alot more often.

Brother All in one printer screen is stuck on "telephone"


Press the Stop Button to cancel whatever you are doing on it. Then press Copy to be able to copy.
If you are printing to it from a computer it should just automatically get to printing when it is sent information.

Why is the light flashing on the right side


If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:

• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing.
• The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.


If it's Busy:
• Wait for the message to clear.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.


If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages:
• Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the
printing stops.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel printing.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.

The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.

After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.

How do we cancel prints on Brother HL-2140


You cancel prints in the computer.

If you tried to print something that is still pending and you need to get it out of the print queue follow these instructions:

On the lower right side of your computer screen near the clock area - look for the printer icon (picture of your printer) Right click with your mouse on top of the picture of the printer and choose "properties" from the drop down list. Click on the name of the document that you wish to cancel and click file and click on cancel document. You can also click on the name of the document you want to cancel and then right click on it again and choose cancel from the drop down list.

You may need to choose cancel all documents to get rid of any which are pending.

Prints one or to pages then stops. Have to reset computer to get it to work. No test doesn't work. It is like it runs out of memory.


Try to run a test for continuous print test page in diagnostics mode. To enter the Diagnostics mode:
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Open the front access door.
3. Turn on the printer while pressing and holding Cancel .
4. Close the front access door once the Error light displays. Print the menu page by pressing and holding Continue until all of the lights flash. Follow the instructions on
the menu page to access the menu items.

Continuously print pages containing cross lines, printer information, and margin settings. Press and hold until the Continue button lights flash to begin. Press Cancel to stop.

Make sure he selects the "Cont Prt Simplex Tray 1" option

If problem persists, contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK()1-800-539-6275.
