    Print to file active even when not selected Brother HL-2270DW


    I have a Brother HL-2270DW. The Print to file box is not selected, yet every time I print I get the Print to File save window.

    I've tried selecting Print to file, printing, then un-selecting and printing, no help.

    Tried printing to another Brother printer which does not have the problem then printing to the laser, still same problem.

    I'll have uninstall and reinstall the drive next but I hate doing that as I have the same printer setup as two devices, one for Duplex, one not and I always have to figure out how I did it last time. When I get it working this time I'll write it down so the next time will be easier.

    I'll wait a bit in case anyone has a suggestion. This was working fine night before last. I'm suspecting an update as the cause. Maybe I'll check and roll back if one was applied recently.

    :)

    my Brother HL 2270DW is default but status is offline though plugged in and troubleshooter found not problem.

    My Brother HL 2270dw is default but persistently "offline status" though the trouble shooter finds nothing wrong. The printer is not accessible to print though our HL 2370 does print for me. This was not a problem until I got my new computer (DELL inspiron15
    3000) with windows 10 on it.

    Suggestions?

    I am unable to print wirelessly to my Brother HL-2270DW printer

    Since updating Windows 10, I am unable to print wirelessly to my Brother HL-2270DW printer. It works fine if I connect it with a cord. What do I need to do to print wireless?

    Print to file active even when not selected Brother HL-2270DW

    my Brother HL 2270DW is default but status is offline though plugged in and troubleshooter found not problem.

    Download the complete driver package from the Brother support site. Uninstall the printer in Device Manager, then reinstall
    using the downloaded driver.
