Question about Brother HL 2140 Laser Printer

Printing labels I bought this brother laser printer in order to print labels. It will print any word document and will also print blank tables, but it immediately switches to error when I try to print a sheet of Avery labels, even on an ordinary sheet of A4 paper

You have to feed the labels through the manual feeder.

All printed documents are labeled as "paused" on the printer list of pending documents


Hi Chia!
What happens when you press on "start" and then "printers" and right click on the printer icon there? Is there a check mark on "Pause Printing"? if so, just left click it and if the printer is on and connected to the computer, it should start printing. Hope that helps!

Printer sends an extra blank sheet after printing one sheet


I am not using the PC with the laser connected at present as i am on a laptop and away from home. i have had this experience and found it to be an option that can be set when printing booklets and some documents.

A blank page can follow as a backing sheet to a document. Check the properties by right clicking on the printer icon and checking all the tabs to untick this

How to print adhisive labels using mfc 7340


Buy laser-specific adhesive labels. Those that say "Laser printer compatible". If you have an inkjet printer, print the labels with it, with the laser is more risky because of the temperature the paper needs to get in the printing process. If one label gets out of the support paper or the paper gets sticky inside the printer, it will cause a real mess.
Try inkjet first, or buy high-quality labels and print one full sheet at a time, not label by label.

Cannot print avery labels, get message the margins of section 1 are set outside the printable page, or will run thru printer , printing complete get blank page


I assume this error is occuring in Microsoft Word.
  1. Create a new document, with a full page of the label you are having trouble printing.
  2. To see the margin settings of your document, go to File > Page Setup (or Page Layout > Margins > Custom Margins for Word 2007).
  3. Click OK on the margins dialog, and Word will check the settings against your currently selected printer. If a margin is set outside the printable area (usually the bottom margin set to zero), you should see the warning message.
  4. Click the Fix button to have Word change the margins
    to match your printer. You should now see the Margins dialog with the new margin settings.
  5. Click OK.
One thing to watch for- on some inkjet printers, the printable area is narrower than the labels. This will cause the labels to shift to the right on the page and be misaligned when you print.
If the labels run off the right edge of the page display, or are misaligned when you print, an extra procedure is needed.
  1. Undo ([Ctrl]+[Z]) the new margin setting, or create a new page from the label template again.
  2. Select the entire table of labels ([Ctrl]+[A]).
  3. Right-click the table, and select Table Properties.
  4. Click the Text wrapping "Around" option, then the Positioning button.
  5. Change the Horizontal position to Center, Relative to Page.
    Uncheck the "Move with text" option. Click OK to the Table Positioning dialog, then click OK to the Table Properties dialog.
  6. Left-click (or press an arrow key) to "deselect" the table, then go into the margins dialog (see above) and allow Word to fix the margin settings again.
With the labels aligned to the page, rather than the margins, the new margin settings should not cause the labels to shift.
Once you have the margins set correctly for your printer, I would save the empty page of labels to use as a "template".

HP laser jet 4045TN is printing a blank page before the actual documents i am printing. In the top left corner of the 'blank' page it usually prints either *s1M or s1M. Do you have a solution for me?...


i am an expert in a different catagory,...
but i read your problem accidently and i had the same problem with my laser jet..
check the order list (in you PC screen in the right end of the START bar there is a little printer ...)click on it
and if you find a printing order of a blank page delete it...if not
then its not the same problem and am sorry i can't help any more..
