Brother printer not retaining settings after re-boot.

    I have a user that has went into the properties of her Brother HL1440 printer and has set the source to Automatic.  However, when she reboots it will go back to something else and will not retain the Automatic setting under source.  Any ideas why this is happening?  Your expedited responses are greatly appreciated.

    If you are talking about "accessories"...
    Paper size =undefined
    Default source=autoselect
    Paper source setting goes : Tray1 - undefined

    or "Basic"
    paper size=a4
    Multiple page=normal
    Media type =plain paper
    First page=Autoselect
    Other pages=?same as first page

    this is for HL-1430 series...(but I think it is the sam for yours)

    Just make sure media type is set to plain paper.
