Troubleshoot - My Brother HL-L2380DW printer randomly prints blank pages with just one or two lines of random characters
I got this printer around Thanksgiving 2015. It's my third brother printer, previously owning the HL-2170W and HL-2280DW and this is the only printer I've had this problem with.
It started about two weeks ago when my girlfriend called me while I was out of the house to inform me my printer was making weird noises. When I returned my printer had gone through the entire tray (several hundred pages) and printed a line or two of random characters on the top of the each page. I'm not sure how long it would have gone on for as there was an "out of paper" error so I hit the cancel button on the printer, flipped the paper over, and put it back in the tray so I could use the otherside (I only print invoices at the tune of 10-20 day).
I didn't have any more problems until this week when the same thing happened twice, once while I was out of the house and again while I was actually sitting at my computer.
When I'm out of the house obviously I can't interfere and it prints through the entire tray. When it happened while I was sitting at the computer I was able to hit the cancel job button on the printer (I thought it was odd that it was printing while I was just web browsing and hadn't sent anything to the queue).
Does anyone know how to trouble shoot this? Its getting to the point where I only want to have 10-20 sheets in the tray at a time so it doesn't run through a few hundred.
I have ran CCleaner and Malwarebytes looking for malware but haven't yet found anything
