This is one of the common connectivity issues marring the benefits of having a wireless printer. In this situation your printer will not print when connected wirelessly but would need you to set it up with your system using a USB cable. Try resetting the IP of your system to what is mentioned in the printer and in case there is a router connecting your printer and system then use the IP address of router and put it in your system. This should help you fix this printer issue.

SOURCE: Wingdings prints on Brother HL2170W

When printing using Terminal Server, the print driver needs to be installed on the server itself. If you have a printer that doesn't have the driver installed on the server, it will either not print at all or it will use the "fallback driver", which is something set by the person who administers the server. Thus, it may be trying to use an HP driver to print to a Brother printer, which won't work. Ask the administrator to install the Brother driver on the server and it should work at that point.

My printer brother HL2170W has toner, the toner light is not flashing but whet its prints it comes blank


This sounds like an issue with either the toner cartridge or the drum unit. Have either of these consumables been changed recently? This should help identify the likely cause.

If the drum has been changed recently I would recommend cleaning the corona wire. If however the toner has been changed there isn't masses I can recommend in terms of trouble shooting. it may however be worth running off 15-30 pages in the hope of pulling the toner through.

Failing this I would recommend calling Brother technical support in case the issue is hardware related and not the fault of a consumable.

I've been able to print from my laptop wireless to printer HP C6180. Only lately, printer was unable to get wireless signal. My other desktop could print wireless to HP C6180. I tried uninstall driver...


In this situation your wireless printer might require a power reset before you print each document. Though the printing activity will take place efficiently you will have to physically go and power the printer to enable it to print. This problem might require you to reload the firmware of the router and set the wireless printer to manual IP address in order to make it work seamlessly no matter how many documents you have to print.

I think, you have selected the Fix to Page option in Print Preferences. You have to change this option.

In the Print Preferences, select the "Print at Actual Size" option.

Hope after this, you will get your problem solved.

Unable to locate printer


Also check that:

1. It is the DEFAULT printer in the computer you are using
2. Load driver again from the manufacturer's CD and not the WIndows driver.
3. Check your USB cable and consider trying a differnt cable also.
