Brother Printer does not have an IP address

Q: Brother Printer does not have an IP address

Hi, I'm new so hopefully I give you enough info to help me.

I bought a new Brother printer (MFC-7480DN) and connected it first to a Mac and then to my PC. I can't get the wireless to work and it's too late to return it but it is under a year if I need to use the warranty.

I do not have an IP address! I have been through ALL of the troubleshooting on their site. I have reset the Network settings a million times and printed the Network Config page a million times as well. (Dramatized) My printer works flawlessly when connected and I have the correct drivers. I can access the printer settings from their software while connected without a problem.

Here is what the Network Config page says:
Node type: Brother NC-8200h. Ethernet 10/100BASE-TX
Node Firmware Version: Firmware Ver.1.00 (10.10.22)

IP Address: 0.0.0.0
Subnet mask: 0.0.0.0
IP Gateway: 0.0.0.0
Boot method: Auto
Boot Tries: 3
IP Filter: Disabled

Under Protocols:
They all say Enabled except IPv6 and LLTD, Those are both disabled.

Also, when I go through the settings on the printer itself Network->Status->Inactive.

There is more but it's a lot to type so please let me know if you need anything else off that page.

I have also tried to set the IP address myself. I put in 192.000.000.192 because I read that was the default for Brother printers, that did not work. I also set the Subnet mask to 255.255.255.000 while I tried that.

How do I make this work? It's driving me crazy. All I want to do is use Google cloud print and be able to be in my bedroom with my laptop and print. No other Brother printer I've had in the past has had this issue but I always connect them to my PC first. DAMN MY MAC!! I think that's how this happened.

Preferred Solution: Brother Printer does not have an IP address

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Brother Printer does not have an IP address

One more thing I tried

I just went into the Printer control menu on my computer and went to "Properties" as the Administrator. Under the heading Port. I picked a port that was not being used. It is called a "Standard TCP/IP Port" and it's IP is 192.168.1.17
I thought this would be ok because another Brother printer I don't have trouble connecting to is using one of the other similar ports.

So then I changed the IP address of my Brother printer to this.. Still isn't working but now when I go back to that spot, my printer's model number is showing up and I feel like I might be getting somewhere, just need a little more info.

I have a brother HL-5250DN printer connected directly connected to the network via a network cable.

Every time I power down the printer it assigns a new internal IP address when powered back up.

I have to go into the printers properties and change the ports properties to match the new assigned IP address.

Is there any way to assign a static IP address to this printer?

Thanks

A:Brother Printer constantly changes internal IP Address

Hi Tim, welcome to the Seven Forums.

You can change the IP and make it static in your printers web interface. Open a browser, give printers IP to address bar, log in (Brother's default user is admin, password access) and click Network Config.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Hope this is the correct Forum for Printer questions.
Is it ?

Have a 5 yr old Brother printer (HL-2140) which uses a TN-360 ink Cartridge.

A Brother branded "high yield" TN-360 goes for about $ 50. Wow.

I see that Amazon carries several other non Brother, but supposedly compatible
TN-360 cartridges by mfg. names I've never heard of.

Much, much cheaper.
Am willing to try one, but am very uncertain which of the brands to go with.

Anyone have any experience with non Brother labeled "compatible" cartridges ?
Any good ?
Which Brand should I try, perhaps ?

Note: It's almost worth buying a brand new Brother printer instead !

Thought on ?

Thanks,
Bob

A:Brother Printer and Non-Brother Branded Ink Cartridges ?

Hi, again:

You will likely find that the answer to this question falls into 2 major camps:
Only use OEM, branded ink from the printer manufacturer (or a trusted, high-volume, reputable seller), OR
It's perfectly fine to use knockoff, refurb, non-branded
I don't know anything about Brother, as I have been using HP printers/all-in-ones since the days of the printing press.

No matter which brand, in the printer industry, the ink/toner is how the manufacturer makes its money, not on the hardware.

There are many factors in the risk:benefit calculation, such as budget, volume of printing needs, need for optimal performance, etc.

My own personal experience for relatively heavy home/home office use is that it is not worth skimping on the cost of discounted ink/toner.
There can be serious quality issues with the cheap stuff (even branded, refurbished ones).
And there can be quality issues even when buying "new" OEM ink/toner from 3rd-party sites or even brick and mortar big box stores (the items may be legit, but they are stale).
If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is.
HP has a terrific ink/toner program -- 2 or 3 mouse clicks and I have the products on my doorstep 1 or 2 business days later, with free shipping. The price is highly competitive, and the ink/toner is always fresh and high-quality. This works very well for me.

Your mileage may vary, of course....
Cheers, MM

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 64 bit version and the install of the Brother DCP 7065DN is causing me grief.

The copy and scan functions are operable, but not the printer function.

I am logged in as Administrator in Vista.

Printing a test page returns an "access is denied" message.

So I try to open as administrator and trying the Print test page, returns message "Printer not installed"

Hi everyone,

A few months ago I bought a new laptop (Compaq Presario C700, nothing special), which brought me my first (sometimes frustrating) experiences with Windows Vista. I now want to use a printer my uncle gave me; a Brother HL - 1030 Laser Printer.

Now my problem: I can't install proper driver software.
I have the software, but it won't install. It says that NT 4.0 drivers are blocked by an enabled policy on my computer. I've found something on that on this forum (http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vista/766895-solved-nt-4-0-driver.html) but when I enter a port name, it says: 'the network path was not found.'

I've also searched on the Brother site for help, but they don't have any driver support for Windows Vista and the only service program available for download is to uninstall driver software

I'm a little nooby, but I put in effort to try and solve this.
Please help me do this and get a nice drawing I made as a reward

I had a paper jam in my Brother MFC 5440-CN. Cleared the jam, but printer still wouldn't print. It was balking because it thought that three of the ink cartridges, which were all at least 1/3 full, were empty.

Usually I've been able to get it to print anyway, but this time I gave up, finally, and replaced the cartridges with new ones; also I unplugged and plugged it, made sure the paper tray was just right, and then - ta-da! - got it to print a page.

Foolishly allowing this success to go to my head, I decided to run the printer through a cleaning cycle, after I printed out a test pattern that was a little bit off. At that point, the printer beeped several times in its charming shrill, high-pitched way, and ever since has been displaying "Unable to print - see troubleshooting and routine maintenance chapter in user's guide". Also, it won't shut down unless unplugged.

There wasn't much that was relevant in the guide, other than things I'd already tried. When I plug it back in and try to print something, it makes a ratcheting sound that is not part of its normal printing sounds, so I turned it over and put some oil on a horizontal metal rod that must be part of the paper feeding mechanism. This did nothing except guarantee greasy print-outs if I ever get this thing going again.

I purchased a Brother MFC-J870DW Printer in October 2014. I set it up using the included CD to run wirelessly. It worked okay up until my cable connection was disconnected this past week. Because I no longer have wireless, I connected a USB cable from the printer to my computer, didn't work.

At the same time I ran out of the black starter ink and replaced it with a "compatible ink cartridge" and immediately got 'Cannot detect" messages. I understand quite a few people who bought these same cartridges had the same problem. So I have to either purchase expensive OE ink or find a truly compatible ink replacement. I don't know if this will fix the printer problem or if I need to install a different driver/software package?

So now that I don't have wireless, I have to use the USB connection. Everything looks okay in device manager. Devices and Printers has a green check on my printer icon, so I presume the printer is equipped with a USB driver or was installed when I ran the setup CD initially.

I'm not sure if I have the right printer version installed? I right clicked printer, then properties to find out which version printer I had, it initially said Version: 1.1.0.0 (3/4/2013). But then I clicked on that 2nd printer icon to check what that was for, checked the version and it was: Version 1.00en-US.

[I apologize in advance if this question is in the wrong forum category. I wasn't sure so I made a guess.]

Okay, so our house has a wireless printer - a Brother MFC-490CW Printer. It also comes with a scanner, copier, etc.
I had to reconnect to the printer, so I went to "Devices and Printers", right clicked the area and selected "Add Printer", then "Add network, wireless or Bluetooth printer", and then selected the Brother printer we have. I had it run a test print and it printed out fine.

I can still print from this laptop, but for some reason I cannot scan images to this laptop. When I go to the device itself and select "Scan", my laptop's name is not on the list of computers the scanner can scan the image to. I tried to be clever by going to Paint to see if I can scan from there, but the "From scanner and camera" option was greyed out and un-selectable.

I can't call Brother themselves to ask for help because, well, in the past their assistance hasn't really been helpful and all that fruitful. Perhaps there is someone here who can help with this, or can at least point me to a place that could give me assistance?

Thank you.

I have Brother Monochrome Laser printer HL2240 plus: [Dell Inspiron 560 desktop; MS Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit; Windows Live Mail 2012; MS Word Pro 2003; Mozilla Firefox 22.0]

No matter what margins I make, the right margin always prints to the right edge of the paper and all lines are cut off at the ends! After over 2 hours and 15 prints(!!!) I'm giving up. I went to “Properties” and the system reinstalled everything, drivers, updates, I re-checked the paper size, position, etc. and the problem persists.

In the past I was able to reduce the margins on all 4 sides and it was fine. Occasionally a popup message would say something like: "It's out of the printing range", and I'd either print it anyway, or would reduce a bit more on the problem side. But never as persistent to be fixed as now.

I don’t know what else to do. I’d appreciate ever so much any help you can give me.

A:My Brother printer cuts off the right margin...

Hello Adela now have you double checked the margin settings in the Word program because often it is the settings in those programs that is causing the problem. I often set mine to what I want as the default.

One thing you can do is set a simple document up and tell it to print then go to Start then into Devices and Printers > right click on your default printer and then go to "See what is printing" > right click on the document and go to properties then Layout tab see what is there (in pic)

Another simple thing you could do is run these two sans for starters if you have not done so already

Here's a link to help.... https://support.brother.com/g/b/faq...cp7060d_all&ftype3=1975&faqid=faq00000211_027

If you check posts by chuy123, he had the same problem as I do.An error message appears during installation of the Brother printer driver as follows: "An error occurred when copying file BRSM9569CDW_0000.DSI. Cannot copy file to destination directory." I spent over an hour with a Level 5 tech support person at Brother and he could not solve the problem. Any suggestions as to what can possilby be blocking the file from being copied?

I have a Compaq Presario R3000
I have a Brother MFC-7829N Network Printer
The computer and printer have a wireless connection

The Brother printer is a multi-function printer - fax, scan, copy, print
Fax, scan and copy all work. Printing does not.

Everything was fine until I ran a full scan of my Kaspersky Internet
Security 2009 program. After that I am unable to print via wireless.
I don't know if the 2 are related or just a coincidence.

If I connect a parallel cable on LPT1: the printer works fine.

I have cancelled all open print jobs.
I have turned off, unplugged and restarted the computer, printer,
router, modem.

I am wondering if I have a corrupt dll file or a connection has been
disabled.

Thanks for the help.

Debbie
