I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Folks
I bet someone has 'seen this movie before'... hope so.
I have a working network at a small church, with five workstations up, one Brother MFC210C multifunction printer/scanner attached via USB to one of the workstations. The existing stations all happily using the printer.

I added yesterday a compaq dc7100... darn good little unit, running XP Professional. When I went to setup the printer, I first got it on the right network, and it can clearly browse the shared resources etc of the other systems... Pointed to the printer, and XP gave me an error to the extent "The device has incorrect drivers loaded", then it wants to send me to the device driver routine, so I need a disk or whatever, but when I point it to the proper folder where I have freshly downloaded the driver files from Brother it says "no driver found for this device"...... AND, to top it off, the MFC210C is not in the list of Brother devices shown in the hardware providers under XP.

So, is there a way first of all to update that Win XP hardware list so that it is populated with the mfc210c? that seems to be the intent of a folder Brother has on their site that is marked "hardware wizard" for windows XP, but they give no instructions on where to unzip the files to!

Any other suggestions?

I note that Windows ME is on the workstation to which the printer is directly attached. There are no errors [driver errors] at all on that or any other station using the printer. no ... 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....

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.

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

Guus Evers, Breda, Holland.

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.

Hi,

I'm just wrapping up installation of a new computer, including a clean install of Windows 10. We have a networked Brother MFC-8480DN. I went to Brother's site, retrieved and installed the full driver and software package for this printer and 64-bit Win 10. There were no errors or warnings indicated during the installation. I rebooted the computers, and attempted to print a test page from Word. Nothing happened -- Word didn't give any error messages, but nothing was queued to the printer.

The printer is set as my default printer. The status shows 'working properly'. The device troubleshooter is unable to detect any errors. In attempting to print a test page from the Printer Properties dialog, it immediately pops up with 'Test page failed to print'.

I can "talk" to the printer. There's a web management page which I can reach without problem through a browser. One of the programs installed with the Brother package was a scan and fax utility, which I tried and had no problem scanning something.

So I'm really at a loss what the problem might be, or where to go from here. I hope someone can help.

Thanks,

A:Instalation of Brother MFC J265W Printer

Sometimes with Vista or Windows 7 you need to install a printer in an un-orthodox way. My suggestion may or may not work, but it's worth a try as it has always worked for me. First un-install your current printer. Then remove the USB cable if that's what you are using. Next shut down your computer. Turn the power on to your printer and plug in your USB cord, then restart you computer. Windows should find your printer and install it. If your drivers are out of date and if you have an internet connection, Windows will go on line and find the latest drivers. Your manual will probably instruct you different, but disregarded what it says and try my suggestion.

Hi. I bought a Brother DCP-J315W and set it up to print via my wifi - it worked fine initially. A couple of days ago I tried to print something - but nothing: a message on the PC said that the document couldn't be printed. I tried via USB cable - still nothing. So I reinstalled the software from the CD-ROM and reset the wifi network (even though the LCD showed no problem - full signal). The wifi indicator on the LCD still shows full signal and the report that is printed out after wifi setup shows all OK. But although I can now print via a USB cable, still no luck via wifi. A bald 'cannot print the document' window: SO annoying, as it was working and I haven't done anything in the interim to stop it from doing so (I was away for Christmas and haven't used the PC (Win XP SP3) since I last printed successfully).

Any ideas why the printer now refuses to accept printing via wifi? In Control Panel/Printers, it is shown as being online. Change to offline, back to online. No joy. I can't see what else to do. A message when I go through troubleshooting steps (in vain) tells me to consult my network administrator - which only makes me angrier, this being a home machine!

Advice gratefully received! if it worked once, what's got into it all of a sudden??!

Thanks,

Martin

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.

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
SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Disk Check (you may need to run this using the /f and /r "switches" you will see in the tutorial.

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?

Greetings,

I have a Brother 7840 all one printer and I am having an issue. When I send a fax with the machine, it first has to scan the document, when it does so it scans it as a jpg and it comes out unreadable.

Is it possible to set it up so it would scan it as a .pdf file instead?
Is there a way to set it up so the document would readable otherwise?

I feel like the machine is a waste since it cannot send a good fax because of this.
