Brother HL-2242 Printer Review

The Brother HL-2242 is a personal laser printer that is designed to fit comfortably in a home and perform reliability on an occasional basis for years to come. This machine is built to be durable and handle all of the basic needs of a home. Whether it is printing concert tickets, book reports or simple graphics, this monochrome unit will spit out crisp and clear black-and-white documents with a maximum resolution of 2400x600 dpi provided by the Brother HL-2242 toner.

This black printer toner is held in a single Brother HL-2242 toner cartridge and comes in a few different capacities. Replacement toners can be found with a yield of 1,200 pages or 2,600 pages, while the starter Brother HL-2242 toner cartridge that is provided by the manufacturer in the shipping box has a yield of only 700 prints. With the high-capacity option, cost per page will be minimal, making this laser printer a great value.

Compatible with all major operating systems including Windows and Mac, the HL-2242 connects to a computer via USB 2.0 port. If being used in an office and multiple users need to be able to share it in a network, a universal ethernet adapter will need to be installed. There is a built-in memory of 8 MB and a 200 MHz processor that allow the machine to warm up in 25 seconds from the off position and 7 seconds from sleep mode. Once warmed, up to 24 pages per minute can be printed.

An LCD display sits on the top part of the device and shows progress of tasks and will let users know when the printer toner is running low. For an affordable alternative, compatible Brother HL-2242 toner is available from third party vendors. These toners are guaranteed to yield the same quantity and quality, but cost much less than the OEM.

Brother HL-2242 Instructional Video Transcript

The Brother HL-2242 is extremely compact for a laser printer, which makes it an ideal choice for personal use. With features like automatic duplexing and a 250-sheet paper capacity, it doesn’t sacrifice important functions, despite a low price. The unit does lack networking, and instead connects via USB port.

The toner light on the printer’s top panel will stay lit when it is time to replace the cartridge. Open the front access panel, then pull out the assembly containing the Brother HL-2242 toner cartridge and the drum.

Set the assembly on some paper in case of spills, then remove the cartridge by pressing down on the small lever on one side. The cartridge should then lift up and out.

Get the new HL-2242 toner cartridge ready by removing it from the box and packing materials. Carefully cut and remove the bag, then take a moment to rock the cartridge back and forth several times to redistribute the toner. Now, you can remove the plastic cover.

Place your new Brother HL-2242 cartridge into the opening in the drum assembly and lock it into place by pressing downward. Rotate the assembly so that you can clean the corona wire before you reinstall it. Slide the small tab back and forth several times before locking it back into place.

Now insert the drum and cartridge assembly back into the printer. Once you give it a firm press to make sure it is seated properly, close the access panel.

You are now ready to resume printing with your Brother HL-2242 printer.
