What to do when your printer prints garbage or unexpected prints?

Your printer was working fine last time you printed and now all of a sudden it has started printing weird texts and images. This can happen to anyone. Sometimes a damaged cable or old Brother HL 5340D toner cartridge or improper installation of the printer drivers can make this kind of issue. You can follow these steps to get rid of such printing issue:

Step 1:
  • Make sure that the printer cable is not too long. The recommended length of the parallel or the USB cable is no longer than 2 meters (6.5 feet). Also, make sure the cable is not damaged at any point
  • Make sure the Brother HL 5340D toner cartridge is not older than 6 months
  • Make sure there is no interface switching device connected to your device. The printer should be directly connected to your PC. If there is any interface switching device connected with your PC and printer, remove it and make a direct connection. Restart your printer after that
  • If all of the above points were checked and fixed accordingly but the printer still continues to make garbage prints, then it must an issue of improper printer drivers
Step 2:

Make sure you have chosen the right printer drivers for your printer.

For Windows:

Go to Printer Preferences setting and check if your printer’s name appears at the top in the printer driver name section then it is good to go. However, if the printer driver name is different then your printer model, then a wrong printer driver is chosen. In that case, you would need to reinstall all the correct printer drivers for your printer with the help of Quick Setup Guide.

For Mac OS X 10.5.x or later users:

Go to the left section and select your printer. If your printer does not appear in next to the Default Printer then choose your printer name. If the Default Printer name matches to the printer driver name appearing in the section just above and the name appearing under Location, next to Kind. Then, the right printer driver is chosen and it can be a problem of your Brother HL 5340D toner cartridge.

However, if both of the printer names in above sections does not match with the Default Printer then you would have to reinstall the printer drivers (you can get them on Brother’s website).
