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.

I have a new Hl 2140 and haven´t printed more than 100 copys but now the toner light is on and the printer refuses to print


Tip the toner cartridge from end to end to redistribute the toner. You will get more mileage out of it, if it is simply a low toner issue.

Brother HL 2140 printer very slow printing.


It sounds like you haven't completely removed the old print driver. To do so, you must take the following steps:

  1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
  2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.
    If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Another way or removing the printer driver is this:

1. Delete the printer from control panel -> printers
2. Open Services.msc and stop and start the Print Spooler service
3. Open Print Management(Open command prompt, type in printmanagement.msc or type print management in to the start menu search box)
4. In Custom Filters -> All Drivers right click the printer driver you want to remove and select Remove Driver Package
5. Install new printer driver.

Now that you've removed the printer driver, you can go ahead and manually install the new printer driver.

To manually install you must follow the prompts carefully.
Follow the instructions in this link:
http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-install-local-printer

At the install the printer driver section, choose have disk and locate the printer driver that you want to be associated with this printer you are installing.

This should solve your problem.

HL 2140 does not print


Hi,

This is a common problem to your brother printer model 2140. You need to turn off your printer and take out the toner. Look for the side and you will see a small hole on both sides. This is the sensor. You need to cover it with electrical tape.

Here is a detailed video on how to do it:

Good luck and hope this helps you.

Hl-2140 noises


For a possible fix to the Brother HL-2140 squeal/squeak/noise problem open the printer at the other side from the paper tray and toner cartridge door. You should see a little black roller rod along with some white wheels.

The noise may be coming from the contact between the wheels/rollers which pull paper toward the output tray on top after it has been printed.

Check and clean/wipe the wheels and black rod, especially in the center area. Hopefully the noise will now be reduced/eliminated.

Cheers, Stephen
