Brother HL-2035


Just works and works and works. Very inexpensive to run. Nice design.

I used to be able to print a status sheet (showing number of prints etc), Now, even with status monitor switched to "on", I cannot remember how to print the status sheet. I can't find anything in the Help section describing this.
