Question about Brother HL 1240 Printer

1 Answer

I needed to print a page off my laptop and put the usb from the HL-1240 Laser Brother printer and it refuses to print, even though it is set as the default printer. Does the printer have to plugged into the computer before starting? It is driving me crazy. I am using Windows 7. Thanks

Hello,

When you plug the printer in to your computer it will either install automatically (using the HL-1435 drivers) or if it is already installed it should come online.

If the printer is not doing this then you need to look on the printer to see if any of the LED lights are on or flashing. The toner cartridge might be empty or you might need to replace the drum unit.

Check the lights and you can see what they each mean on the Brother website using the link below.

Thanks,

Pat

Can i set the Brother HL-2140 to print double sided. I cannot find it ?


The Brother HL-2140 does not include duplex printing. The only option for double sided printing with this model is to print odd numbered pages, then manually replace the paper into the tray and print the even numbered pages in a second set.

Brother HL-2030 continually prints test pages


disconnect the printer from your pc and clear out all print jobs... leave it on and let it sit for a day... if no test page prints then the problem is your pc... if it starts printing like crazy then reset it via page 54 of the user guide if it still prints like crazy with the network cable or usb cable disconnected then you need to call brothers tech support but more than likely it shouldn't do anything... if this is the case... the problem is your pc... or your server...

No 600 DPI with Vista


Bonjour, réponse en français je suis pas bon en anglais je mettrai une traduction en anglais juste après, donc la solution est d'installer manuellement le driver de la HL 1250 de Vista cela fera fonctionner la HL 1240 mais avec les 600 dpi (pour information la 1250 est à 1200 dpi mais bridée à 600 dpi sous vista)
