How To Fix Brother Printer Deep Sleep Issue?

Before moving on to the procedure to fix the Brother printer deep sleep issue, let’s try to understand the deep sleep mode. Sleep mode on the printer reduces power consumption. You can set a timer in the machine and the printer will persist in sleep mode for the specified time. The Brother printer resets the timer when it receives a printing job. If the printer is in sleep mode and does not receive any printing jobs for a specific period, the printer will automatically go into deep sleep mode. When deep sleep is enabled, you will see the “Deep Sleep” message on the LCD screen. The user can manually adjust the deep sleep mode settings and resolve the issue.

  • Wait for the Sleep Mode: ON message to pop up on the LCD screen.
  • Tap the down or up arrow keys to turn off the sleep mode.
