Question about Brother HL-2170W Laser Printer
Background: Macintosh iMac 5.1, running OSX Leopard (10.5.4). Printer connected via USB port.
Recently added LaCie backup drive, connected via Firewire 400 port. Printer worked correctly for a while after the installation.
Problem: Prints 'garbage'; looks like printer control text, interpreted as literal text. Sample:
dup 58 /t put
dup 59 /u put
dup 60 /eight put
You can contact the company for support and also download a manual here if you do not have one. There are alot of support options for your printer here. I can find no reference to the garbage printing and the numbers it is printing.
The only thing that I can suggest is to turn it off, unplug it, disconnect it and let it sit for 1/2 hour to see if it will reset itself. Then I would plug it back in, connect to the computer and restart the computer. Then I would turn the printer back on. Some printers respond well to this simple reset.
Good luck to you and thank you for using FixYA. Ratings are always appreciated.
