Q: brother install printer not found

Here I go again. I asked this before and the problem was solved. However I installed a new and upgraded mobo and cpu. The printer will not install now. For general safety I reinstalled W10 and all my programs. I downloaded and ran the Brother drivers setup.exe. All I get is "machine not found". This is so even though after running setup.exe the Brother mfc-j895dw printer appears in Devices and Printers each time I attempt the install though I remove that device each time. I even tried the previously failed cd install just in case but it still fails. Setup.exe runs and decompresses all the files into a folder Install which contains setup.exe. I deleted that folder and the driver download and tried running setup several times to no avail. I deleted the downloaded file, the Install folder, and the printer from Devices and Printers before attempting each reinstall. I disconnect the Brother from everything before starting setup and only reconnect it when installation says to reconnect. I also set the printer as the default printer each time to no avail.

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.)

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"

I have tried the XP compatibility mode as well as XP and Win7 printer drivers but no success.

I have had no problem installed the printer on another hard drive with Win 7

Brother says my Vista is corrupted and contact support.microsoft.com . How nice, Doing a web search, it seems that Brother definitely has compatibility issues with Vista judging on all the posts. Unfortunately I see few solutions.

Any takers out there?

Hi, I cannot re-install my brother printer HL2170W. I have seen here a post that had the link to the website for the latest drivers...went there and when i unzip the file there is no setup file or even an executable file that gets zipped. Am i missing something?

Prior to this, I ran the install of the latest drivers (I think) from the website for 64 bit vista. Then it went through the installation and completed but the printer does not show up on the control panel. So, that is why I tried to follow the instructions posted here.

Thanks

I am running into a problem trying to install a Brother QL-800 label printer on a Dell Desktop running 64 Bit Windows 8.1 Professional. The driver installer was downloaded directly from the Brother website Support download page for that model. The installation procedure took a while and completed without any kind of failure or warnings.

The previously installed P-Touch labeling software could not find a compatible label printer and chose the Windows default networked laser printer as the output device. The QL-800 was powered up and connected by a USB cable to the computer before launching the P-Touch software. When I checked the Windows Devices & Printers control panel, the QL-800 was listed as a storage device under Devices instead of under Printers. I removed the device and ran the Brother cleanup utility to remove the drivers and then repeated the installation procedure with the same results.

The user had been using the P-Touch software with an older QL-550 label printer that was starting to have mechanical problems but otherwise was working OK with the P-Touch software. It was not connected to the computer when I removed it from the Windows printer list before I installed the QL-800 drivers. The software was able to immediately recognize and use the QL-550 when the USB cable was moved from the QL-800 to the QL-550.

What do I need to do to make the QL-800 install as a printer? I am leary of uninstalling the QL-550 drivers as the user does need to print labels on a r... Read more

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....

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.

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 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.

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 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.

Hello there, Before you could progress further, please verify if the printer supports win 10 or not. After which, please go to device manager and check if there is an exclamation mark next to the printer. If yes, this means there is a trouble with the driver.If no, this means the drivers are installed on the computer. Uninstall the drivers, and add a printer from control panel. And further, after the printer is added, please right click on the device and choose update driver software.  This should work after a restart

I swear I'm going to dump these machines in the frickin' dumpster! Fresh install. Found I couldn't print my maps, very useful to me. Also found I didn't have my printer installed (Brother MFC-4620DW). I installed it. It still won't print my frickin' maps! Still I can't get anything done on these contraptions.

I'm still sick, still crippled, still dying.

And it's bedtime again!

Gotta get out of Dallas, by cracky!
