20 Most Recent Brother HL 1240 Printer Questions & Answers


Hello,

This printer is almost 10 years old. The original drivers are for Windows 3.1, 95/98, or NT 4.0. Not sure how XP is handling it.

When you go to print and get the print window, you should be able to select Properties (or Preferences) and there should be either a Quality tab or an Advanced tab.

This is where you should be able to change the resolution to 600X600.

You are not going to get a newer driver for this because of the age, but you still should be able to get 600 DPI out of it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Bonjour, réponse en français je suis pas bon en anglais je mettrai une traduction en anglais juste après, donc la solution est d'installer manuellement le driver de la HL 1250 de Vista cela fera fonctionner la HL 1240 mais avec les 600 dpi (pour information la 1250 est à 1200 dpi mais bridée à 600 dpi sous vista)

Hi
Turn it off and on.
Check through the paper paths and clear any paper jam.
Try disconnecting the printer.
Leave it for like 2 hours and then connect it again.

in most case this kind of issues arise if your drum is not cleaned properly with the wiper. As the printer becomes old, the wiper that cleans the drum might get reduced in size...
so it has to be checked at the first.

Yes if the connectors on the cable are the right type.

3) Lightly press the panel button again.
Alarm LED is ON = Front registration sensor is turned ON.

If it's printing gibberish, you need to restart both printer and computer and then make sure you clear the printer cue in the computer.

From the Service manual:

Toner low: The Data and Alarm LEDs blink once every five seconds.
Toner empty: The Data and Alarm LEDs blink once every second.

Alarm & Data LEDs are ON: Toner empty
