The printer is compatible with PC and Mac and can be connected to a network via both wired and wireless connectivity. There are multiple ways to print such as directly from a USB memory drive and via email thanks to its WiFi capabilities. Brother have also developed an iPrint and Scan app, which is designed to work on both Android and iOS devices. These advanced options help you get the most from your printer and allow you to print while on the move.

The printer includes a toner cartridge capable of printing roughly 1000 pages, so will keep your office ticking over for a long time. When you do run out of ink, genuine replacement cartridges are available in multi-packs and XL sizes to help you benefit from extra savings.

Customer Questions & Answers

  • How do you change ink? Is there a cartridge?

    Hi, to clear the Replace Toner message, you must open the cover and take out the drum unit assembly. Replace the old toner cartridge with the new one and then slide the green tab on the drum unit side to side, 3 times. Ensure you return the tab to the home position. Lastly, put the drum unit assembly back into the machine and close the cover. If you require further technical assistance, you can call Brother's Technical Support Line on 08444 999 444.

  • I have just purchased the Brother printer. Has this model a scanner fuction ?

    The Brother HL-1212W is a single function mono laser printer, so unfortunately it does not have the ability to scan, copy or fax.
