O' Brother Why Art Thou Not Printing ?
While I am someone who lives in the digital age , I still love paper and loving paper means loving my printer; even when it doesn't love me back.
Often times when we get a printing error, we try things like looking for a paper jam or turning it off and then back on. Both are valid trouble shooting steps but don't forget to actually look to the printer for help. We currently have a number of Brother printers within our organizaiton and they have stood the test of time very well, but when they don't the first thing I do is look for the flashing led lights to determine what the problem is.
Sometimes it is something simple like low toner cartridge.
Other times the problem may be indicated my multiple blinking lights. Either way, the Brother Solution Center has very nice trouble shooting instructions complete with blinking lights to mimic what you might see on your printer.
There are dozens of printer brands out there so if a Brother is not what you have, check your printer manufactor's website for helpful troubleshooting tips.
