Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
Brother HL-2040 will not print. After refilling the paper supply, my printer stopped printing. Has just the standard green ready light ( which blinks as I send a print job). Nothing from a print test (turn on with GO button depressed, release and depress once.). (Any way to do a NVRAM reset on this ******? Never any problems until now.) We are still on the initial toner cartridge, I hesitate to buy and try a new one if this isn't going to make any difference. Thanks for any ideas...
(I have looked and covering the toner light beam path,
the low toner, front door open, hold go, turn on, release, two "GOes" then three "GOes",
and even giving it the evil eye!)
When you refilled the paper, did you load a different size paper? Try this: on your PC, left click on START, then left click on CONTROL PANEL. Next, left click on PRINTERS. Find your BROTHER on the printers page and view the status box. Does it show READY? Are there any DOCUMENTS pending? Left click (you may have to click twice)on the BROTHER icon. The PRINT QUEUE appear, showing any documents waiting to be printed, and their status. If anything is in the queue, cancel all documents so the queue is clear. Next, RIGHT CLICK on the BROTHER icon . On the drop down menu,left click on PRINTING PREFERENCES. Make sure the settings match the paper you have loaded in your machine. If something is not right (Paper size, orientation,etc) the machine will not print. Carefully check all the settings and correct as necessary. To test, first click OK to exit PRINTING PREFERENCES. On the same menu, left click on PROPERTIES. On the GENERAL tab, left click on TEST PAGE button to generate a test print.
