Thank you for using FixYa

If there is an icon at the bottow for the printer, click on it and go into the printer optioins, otherwise, go to the control panel and select the printer.

There should be options for setting various functions, like page orientation, size, source, margins.

Be sure the correct paper size is selected, look at the file you are tyring to print and see what size of paper it looks like on the page. Check your margins to see if it is set for a typical 8.5 x 11. page.

If the page you are printing is other than normal text, it may require special settings. If it has special graphics, charts, or spreadsheets, especially, be sure the settings in the program you are printing from match the settings for the printer. Check if the orientation is landscape or picture type. Does it have a rectangle going up or sideways? All of these are general procedures settings since we do not know what your page or file looks like that you are printing from.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

To configure the printer you will need to run the 'Remote Printer Console'. If you do not have a copy, you may download it on the link below:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=hl2170w_all

During the installation process it should ask you the connection you will do for the printer during the initial set-up. I would recommend to use the USB connection in case the printer does not detect the network immediately.

If this has worked before you may run the software in the same manner and may need to re-enter your network settings.

Your network settings should be the same as the computers on your network. If you are using wireless make sure you are using the same network name or SSID and type of security and password.

I fixed the drum and error light but i still can't print

If printing via network and you have not set a static (meaning it doesn't change) ip setting for your printer, then your ip address may have changed. IF this is the case, http://mikebeach.org/2011/03/02/assigning-the-brother-hl-2170w-a-static-ip-address/
Also, have you updated your printer driver? Be sure to go to control panel, device manager, printer, and then uninstall before installing new driver. Also, uninstall/remove the printer.

Can one print a photocopy of a document on Brother HL-2170W or is it a printer "only"?


It is a printer only. But you can take a photo of your document and then print it out.

Brother 2170W "fails to associate"


Have you tried the SecureEasySetup method of connecting your HL-2170W to your wireless network?

Basically, it involves no wires:

1) Press the wireless setup button on the back of your printer (you may need to use a pen or pointed object)

2) Press the SecureEasySetup button on your router

3) Let the two sort it out - Green Go button on printer indicates success.

A complete guide for using the SecureEasySetup for your brother model:
