Brother Printers Windows 7
I'm aware that people (many people) have been having issues with windows 7 and printing so I thought I'd jump in with my peculiar problem. We have a couple of Brother printers, (HL-2140 and 2030), locally attached to Windows 7 machines in the school. They seem to have installed correctly, showing up in devices and printers, with the latest drivers from the brother site but when you go to print a test page nothing happens. If you unplug the USB cable or the power then the printer icon goes grey, plug it back in and it becomes solid again.
I have tried uninstalling the printers, reinstalling, deleting the driver and reinstalling, logged in both locally and on the network but nothing appears to be helping. My latest workaround was to install XP mode virtual machine and install there, which worked fine, but this is not really a usable fix.
Can anyone help me?? please??
