Does this happen when you print from a word document, PDF etc..
What operating system are you using?
if you are using Windows
open your printer folder from the control panel print a test page from the driver.

If you try to print something and strange characters print.
either you have a corrupted print job in the memory..
Clear the Print que from the PC, unplg the printer for a few minutes.
print a test page from the driver.

You possibly could have the wrong drivers installed, which will also cause this problem.
this is a link to Lexmark, and you can down load the proper driver here.

Printing garbage


That sounds like a problem with the print driver. Are you using the correct driver for your operating system? Try reinstalling your print driver, or if there is a newer one available, update the driver to the newest version. You can find MFC-240C drivers here:

I TRY TO PRINT ONE PAGE AND THE PRINTER PRINTS MULTIPLE PAGES AND IT IS ALL GARBAGE.


This happens when you have the wrong driver software loaded into your computer. Try printing a test page directly from the printer. Hold the 'page feed' button as you power up the printer. This will tell you if the printer is working. If this is ok, try a different print driver in your computer.

Garbage printing


Hold both buttons while powering on the printer. Hold them both for a least 20 seconds and release. When trouble-shooting fails, sometimes the NVRAM can be the reason for the strange behaviors.

Crazy characters start to print when printing from pdf doc or certain websites


Hi,

I understand that the printer is printing garbage when you are trying to print from internet.

Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

This issue can occur if the data send from the application from which you are printing, is using the PC-8 character set. This will produce a smiley face or garbage charters each time an unsupported escape code is sent by application. To know the character set, please contact the manufacturer of the application.
Also, you can follow these steps to disable the power managment in the comoputer.
1. Right-click My Computer, choose properties
2. Click Hardware tab, click Device Manager button.
3. Click the + next to Universal Serial Bus Controller.
4. Right-click USB Root Hub, choose properties.
5. Click Power Management tab.
5. Uncheck the option "Allow the computer to turn off this device
to save power.
6. Click Ok.

If the issue persists, follow the instructions from the below given weblink to resolve the issue.

Here is the web document:

Problems with SRP 270AP - it prints garbage


Garbage in garbage out. I reckon that printers will only print what data they are sent. So reinstall drivers on both computers in the first instance then report back
