For crying out loud.

The "blotch" is caused by damage to the drum or to the toner fusing roller.

If the "blotch" is loose toner (in other words you can smear it) then the fuser roller is damaged and that assembly needs to be replaced.

If the "blotch" is fused (in other words you cannot smear it around) then the drum is damaged and that assembly needs to be replaced.

The original MSRP for the Brother MFC-7440n in 2008 was $429 (US) / 213 pounds [FixYa couldn't handle the pound sign!! =8-) ] (UK) / $499 (AU). The present street value is about $199 according to Brother ( http://www.brother-usa.com/MFC/ModelCompare/4/MFC7440N_MFC7460DN#.UXBKKKLq3yA ).


A drum unit is $80 (Amazon) or $115 (Staples).

That same $200 could get you a Canon Pixma MX-922 (Canon http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx922). Inkjet? Yes. But fast. Airprint. 2-sided ADF and copying. Auto-duplexing. CD/DVD disc printing. Frankly, if I didn't already have an Epson 835, I would buy this one. My old Canon 820 still chugs along as beautifully as the day I got it (about a zillion years ago).

For $50 more you can get a top-rated laser, their imageCLASS MF4880dw (though oddly, without Airprint - for Airprint in a Canon laser, you have to step up to the big boy: the imageCLASS MF8580Cdw).
.

Well. Have fun!

Solution #1 is absolutely spot-on from adnanbhatti, copy the link into your browser to be able to see the photos of the printer and how to slide the print head:

When I slid the print head over as specified, I found a little crumpled paper fragment soaked with ink. Pulled it out.... I turned on the printer, it ran a cleaning cycle automatically, and started printing just fine!

Hi there.
The HL-2130 does not have an auto-duplexing system included in the machine. If you wish to duplex print you need to print the first page then feed that page through the Manual Feed system (Side to be printed up, top of page first) and print the second page on the manually fed page.

Downloaded service & repair manual for brother mfc 5840CW- my unit. Will follow repair directions to check the memory then replace required parts. Will be cheaper and faster than finding a repair shop and paying as much as the macine to fix it! Rip off prices for repairs today on units so they can get you to leave them and buy a new one. Then they fix the unit and sell it "refurbished"- not mine!
Your information on clearing memory, the ink cleaning codes and taping the cartridge from over cleaning was good. Thanks for the help!

It appears that one can purchase the black cartridge separately from the colour cartridges. But your Brother machine is designed to stop ALL printing operations when any of the ink cartridges are empty. In that case you would need to replace all ink cartridges that are empty in order to resume printing.

My first solotution was to reinstall the printer as a new printer. But that is uncessary. The fix is as easy as changing the IP address the in Port.

The problem is the the IP address for your wirelss is not static. and when it changes, the printer does not recognize the new IP address. When this occurs. go the the printer folder ( in the control panel) and click on 'add new priter'. Then select 'add a network wirless printer . NO NEED TO INSTALL THE PRINTER...you just want to see the IP address.

Note the IP address.

GO to the printer, click on the right mouse and select 'properties'
Click on Port
You will see the current port already highlighted.
Click on ' configure port' and change the IP address under "printer name or IP address.
Click OK.
Problem solved

Good luck.

Check your operator''s manual for a reset procedure. If this doesn't work, pull the AC plug overnight, if the error isn't stored in a flash memory, this may help reset it.

It is most likly not linked to word. Word is likly sending the prints to the wrong, obsloete or wrong copy of the printer.
When printing check to see where the doc is being sent to print.
Then go to printers to see which printer is your 2140 active and ofcourse do a test print. If the test print is good this is the correct link to your printer.

It isn't a network printer since it only has a USB interface (no LAN port)
http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/MFC/ModelBrochures/Brochure_MFC240C.pdf

but you may purchase a print server if you want to share the printing function on your network (only the printing function can be shared). But some multifunction printers do not work with print servers due to driver issues. There are some users on the net who were able to make this work with an IOGEAR multifunction print server.

There is one Brother multifunction network printer that you may want to check:
