Sounds like someone changed the language settings on the printer. Unless you know French...just reinstall it.

Press the menu (button) and choose initial setup (in French Réglage initial). One option allows you to select the local language. In French it will say Langue locale. Change it your preferred tongue.
Hope it helps.

Then give your printer a through cleaning following the instruction in part 6.

If that doesn't fix it you need a new toner cartridge.

HL2700 Error EF5

Seems that you can't fix the problem, 'BROTHER' should recall all of these and give us new printers. Big dollars have been spent on the printer, the only solution is, that you are told to switch off the printer and on again and see what happens.

This unit is heavy and it costs big dollars to get someone out to have a look at it.

BROTHER promises big but delivers small in this case.

To install the printer you will need to first install the software - which can be downloaded from the Brother website at the below link. (Or if you have the installation cd, run that)

After the software is installed, the program will likely instruct you to connect your printer - when this occurs you should connect the usb cable from your printer to your laptop. Once the software is installed and a connection has been made, the program will print a test page and providing the test page prints successfully you are ready to go!

Brother sold me replacement part but will not give instructions

Hi, it looks like you have to pay to get a copy of the HL-6050 service manual. sells it for $9.95, or has it for $12.99, including a parts list.

Hope that helps!

How to install new brother printer 2820

How to install it as what? A fax machine? Or a printer/scanner?

To install as a FAX, just plug a phone line cord into the port that says "Line", plug the power cord in and you're done.

As a printer, go to Brothers web site and download the software for your machine. Install the software, plug a USB cable into the machine and the computer and follow the on screen instructions. It's really that simple.
Please try to be more verbose with your questions.
