Hi mrgaijinsan,

Here's a PDF document with the instruction for new firmware which now help you address the issue of getting the offline message and will allow you to print. If you also did an upgrade to Macintosh OS X 10.5.5 this is also the fix. Please click this link for steps in updating the printer's firmware, this is applicable for HL-2140 as well.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using Fixya.

Re boot the computer with ,( wired or wireless printer?), the printer cable in the USB port in the laptop/desktop, the windows version you have will ID the device and try to load a driver, or Go to printer in the start menu and ADD a PRINTER the software will search for the attached printer. OR use the software that came with the printer, load into the Dell and follow the instructions.

I recently installed the Brother HL-2140 to my computer, everything came through, but I am not able to print. Rose


Set your new HL-2140 as the default printer. Go to Control Panel, Click Printers and Scanners tab, and set your Brother HL-2140 as your default printer. You may have other printer as the default printer currently. Check your connections again. Connect it to another USB port as the current port might not be responding due to connection contact problem.

Computer (windows 98) won't read driver/disc install of Brother HL-2140Says OS not compatible - but online research says otherwise


Windows 98 is not compatible with this unit. I could not find info that it was compatible. I went as far to contact brother directly and they gave me the same info, it is not compatible. There are rarely any new units that you can find that are compatible with windows 98. My suggestion would be to upgrade to windows xp or vista. Tiger Direct has great prices for windows OEM versions, service pack 2 is going for 90 bucks. They are a reputable store/online warehouse. They always deliver on time and i never had damages. Let me know if you need more info
