Question about Brother HL 1440 Laser Printer
I've installed the drivers and can print the test page that states the printer is properly installed...BUT... every time I hit "print" from a program (MS-Word for example) the PC's uninteruptible power supply beeps (as if power was lost for a half-second) and then the PC just shuts OFF. No shutdown, or anything, just off. The printer then spits out a (usually) blank page. Any ideas would be appreciated!
With symptoms like that, is the printer power cord plugged into the PC's uninteruptible power supply? NO Laser printer should be connected to a UPS, as the internal heating wand/assembly draws way too many watts, as does the rest of the printer. In this scenario, the PC would shut OFF due to the UPS being momentarily overloaded. Plug the printer into a separate surge protector. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
