Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

1 Answer

When I turn on my printer, it automatically starts printing - nothing. The paper comes out blank and I have absolutely no idea. I checked the printing queue but nothing was there. I uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and the same problem happened. However, when I checked the printing queue a document was there titled - "Local Downlevel Document." The status was blank, pages is N/A and size 79bytes.

Unplug the printer cable... then unplug the printer from power.

While the printer is off remove that job from the queue.

Reading no paper paper tray is full


Instructions
  1. Check the display for an error message. If the display reads "Clearing paper from printer," the engine has detected a jam and is attempting to eject the jammed pages automatically. These pages will often be blank.
  2. Check the display for "Performing PRINT/STOP TEST" or "Performing SERVICE TEST." Either of these messages indicates that the printer is going through a test procedure that may eject blank pages.
  3. Reduce the amount of paper in the input tray if the printer is feeding multiple blank sheets at a time. The printer will pull extra pages through if the input tray is overfilled.
  4. Replace the paper in the input tray with the correct size if needed. If the 4600 printer detects the paper as an incorrect size for the print job, it may eject the paper without printing anything on it.
  5. Replace the ink cartridges if certain colors are blank on the page. Replace the black cartridge if printing a black text document that is coming out blank. The printer may attempt to print even if the ink level is low or empty, but will unable to print anything on the page, causing it to come out blank.
  6. Remove the sealing tape from newly installed cartridges. The tape covers the print heads and should be removed before installing the cartridges. If the tape is left on, it will prevent ink from getting on the pages as they print.
  7. Press the "Check mark" button on the control panel to enter the printer menu. Run a diagnostic so the printer can attempt to determine the cause of the blank pages printing. Press the up or down arrow to select "Diagnostics." Press the "Check mark" button. Press the "Down" arrow to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting." Press the "Check mark" button. The printer runs a diagnostic and returns to a ready state when done.

Fulll ink cartridges but paper blank after printing


I've tried many kinds of cleaning and nothing helps save the old printhead. The only repair is to replace the printhead which costs around $100.00 for the part alone. It's not easy and should be done by a shop but a new machine would be less than the repair and you start again with a one year warranty.

Printer prints nothing - it's speaking to the pc, it sounds like its printing, the paper goes through but comes out blank. Any ideas?


Check for the inks. If they are still full, try taking them out and clean the printhead as some ink got dried and blocked the passage where the ink goes out. Also, it would be wise to shake the ink cartridges to distribute the ink evenly.

Blank paper syndrom


Can you do a simple color or b/w copy job? If yes, the ph is OK and you might have to reinstall the drivers (delete before that the old ones).

If you cant see any copy job (blank paper) you should change to original carts and run the manual cleaning procedure twice. Wait a few hours an try to do the printing again. You might have to run the cleaning procedure twice again!

Empty ms word printout


Hi, You can try: 1. go to Start, Printer and Faxes, right click on your 3745, click on Properties, Printing Preference; 2. Check to see if you have any Advanced tab or button; 3. Check if you can set the printer to text only; 4. Check if you can set the printer to use black ink only. 5. In MS Word, verify through the use of Print Preview that your document is as you would want to be printed; 6. In some instances you may have to set manually text color in MS Word. While your document is open, click Ctrl + A to select all, then choose font color to "Black". Alternately, in your MS Word, you can click on "Format", "Font", "Font Color" set to "Black" rather than "Automatic" and set this as the "Default" setting. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

No ink coming from cartridges.


Sounds like maybe the nozzles are clogged up. Try using the printer maintenance utility to "Clean Nozzles". I think for most Lexmark printers it is call the "Lexmark Solution Center" in your Windows Start Menu. If that doesn't work, try maybe wiping the cartridge with a damp paper towel at the place where the ink comes out.
