Question about Brother HL 5140 Laser Printer
I have two Brother HL-5140 printers that have the same problem. They won't print anything from the computer via the usb or parrallel cable. They will print a test page using the control panel on the printer, but not through the controls on the brothers control program on the computer. Neither printer has any yellow or red lights. Both printers were used about twice a week for two years when they quit working. The computer recognizes the printers when attached through a usb cable, but nothing prints. Another Brother HL-5140 attached to the computer works fine.
Try a different brother driver or an HP 4000 driver / pcl 5 or 6. You should get a printout.
