Brother HL-2270DW printer shows offline and won't print
I had this problem today with my wireless Brother MFC-990CW using Windows 7, and when I went to see what s printing, then printer, it wasn t showing that I had checked the use printer off-line
So, on my pc I went to the start button then chose:
- Double click your printer
- New print drivers will start to install
- Right click the icon that is a copy made of your printer setup
- Set this as your default printer
I was then able to print and my printer didn t show as being off-line anymore. This is a lot easier than having to uninstall and install the printer again using the disc.

Prints only blank pages
I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".
This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Red "Paper" light blinking Brother HL-2040
I agree with another su=olution. The paper light was blinking on and off sugesting a paper jam. Paper had jammed in the back roller and displaced the small lever out of its slot.
Open rear cover, open paper guide by pulling it downwards so you can see the rollers, In the middle of the guide you will see a black lever about 25mm long to the right of this you will see a small slot. The guide will have been pushed to the left of this slot and the Plastic cam will be bowing toward the front of the printer (about 3mm). You need to pull the 25mm lever towards the rear of the printer and then slide the plastic cam to the right so the blade part of the cam slides into its correct slot. The blade is about half a mm thick and the slot is the same and is about 60mm to the right of the lever Use a torch to see it easier. This is a 2 minute job once you see what is wrong.
Hope we have helped someone out there fix a printer

pull tray out load a couple sheets look underneath and see if paper is lifted up when closing paper drawer. If the paper is not raised to the up position you have broken the tray lift mechanism and it is not worth fixing. You can jam an eraser underneath the tray to manually raise the tray to do a dodgy fix.

My hp 5510 photosmart printer will not print in black
Make sure you have run a cleaning cycle before spending money replacing anything. Sometimes the print heads will get a little dry and a color or multiple colors will stop printing. Have you replaced the black cartridge recently? Make sure you have pulled all the tape off correctly. There is an air hole that needs to be opened usually under the tape that will prevent the ink from flowing out of the cartridge. Let us know what your results are after checking the cartridge and running a cleaning.

Toner LED remains on with after new cartridge is installed.
Open the front cover and leave open while completing the following steps:
Turn the printer off.
Hold the 'go' button while turning the printer on. All panel lights should be on.
Release the 'go' button.
Press the 'go' button 2 times.
Press the 'go' button 5 times.
The toner light should be off.
The paper light should be on.
Close cover. The ready light should be the only light on.

Lines on papre
Replace the toner cartridge.
There is probably a flaw in the image drum. Replacing the toner will replace the image drum (they are one piece)

Faint print on Brother HL-2040
Try cleaning the drum cylinder with alcohol and a cotton ball. Then swipe the corona wire cleaner back and forward making sure to return it to the correct place. Try a print. If it is improved - replace the drum at earliest convenience. If not improved - could be dirty laser lenses or problem with the fuser.
