Hi...what would cause a printer to consistantly revert to printing just a half of a page of what it is supposed to be printing?...it started doing this while i had 2 printers hooked up, an epson (which is since gone) and a Brother MFC-210C, which i have repeatedly uninstalled, both physically and the drivers, and re-installed, only to have it revert back to said problem in a matter of days....
...running XP Home....
thanks for any help!!

First thing that pops in my mind is did you uninstall the drivers for the printer that you no longer use?

You can also try downloading the latest drivers for your Brothers printer HERE. You'll have to choose the language you want, then download the drivers. Completely uninstall the old drivers, then restart your computer, then install the new drivers, restart again, and keep your fingers crossed. If this fails, let us know and we'll go from there.

Good luck! :thumbsup:
