I found this from Tony Benjamin
I have tested it on two different Brother Lasers and it worked.

To cancel DEEP SLEEP on Brother Printer

  1. Go to General Setup then OK
  2. Ecology then OK
  3. SLEEP TIME then OK
  4. While sleep time is display push Down Arrow and CANCEL at the same time!
  5. DEEP SLEEP on/off toggle by Arrow keys
  6. OK to SAVE Deep Sleep off.
It is a shame they don't have this in the web interface or manual they sent with the printer.

    I was wondering if you know how Tony Benjamin discovered this solution? I was told by Brother tech support that Deep Sleep couldn't be turned off.

    Hi Robert. I dug it up on a forum somewhere in the dark web. He didn't say how he figured it out but it must have taken some real tenacity. Brother also told me it was not possible, seems that should be in their tech support Data Base.

We got our Hl 2170W laser printer using air miles (2008) The printer is making a lot of noise because there is a gear inside that is not turning well. How are repairs covered with an air mail purchase?...


No matter how you purchased, Brother machines have a one year warranty. You will need a receipt to show purchase date or they can check the serial number for manufacture date. 1-800-276-7746 is the Brother cust. support line where they can tell you where the nearest service center is.
