A: Brother printer not printing wifi - windows 10 issue??

Hi and welcome!
I found these steps from Brother's support section of their website.

1. Turn off your Brother machine. Wait a few seconds, then turn it on again.
Wait at least three minutes for the machine to join the network.
If the issue continues, go to STEP 2.

2. Use the Network Connection Repair Tool to fix the Brother machine's network settings. It will assign the correct IP address and the Subnet Mask.
> Click here to see how to use the Network Connection Repair Tool
If the issue continues, go to STEP 3.

3. Check your machine's wireless status by printing the WLAN report.
> Click here to check the wireless status on the WLAN report.

If your WLAN report is stating "Connection OK", although you can not print, refer to "Check the wireless status on the WLAN report" and check "Connection: OK"

I have a ink jet Brother mfc240c printer. Recently it stopped printing yellow ink. I replaced the cartridge and still no yellow ink comes out on print outs. All other colors print fine (black, cyan magenta), just not the yellow.

I have tried cleaning the print heads and a deep power clean, through the menus on the printer itself. The ink monitor shows all ink levels to be full.

I am using compatible brother ink cartridges and haven't had an issues out of them for the 3+ years I have owned the printer. Any ideas on how to get the yellow to print again? I talked to Brother tech support and they said they could only help me after I had bought "genuine Brother ink" and was hoping the forum here had some suggestions of things I can try before buying some "genuine Brother ink".

Thanks for the help.

A:Brother Printer Not Printing Yellow Ink

Don't know much about printers myself, but if I wanted to get this fixed I would probably just phone up Brother but tell them its genuine ink, they won't know any different. If they want to take it in to look at just say no, it wil cost you anyway if its 3+ years old and would probably be cheaper to replace it anyway.

My HL-5240 worked fine on 9/3. Was away for the weekend - came home and now the printer does not work. Printer status is "Error - printing". Option to connect printer is greyed out. Control panel -> printer is ready. Test page does not print ("error - printing"). If I hit the "go" button on the printer three times, I will get a printed copy of the settings so I know that the printer is able to print (no jams, toner good, etc). If I go to the printer properties and select TROUBLE SHOOT, it comes back and tell me "Trouble shooting couldn't identify the problem". I have an epson printer that prints. So, what happened to my Brother? Any ideas?

Would sure appreciate some help with this; driving me crazy.

Have a few year old Brother monochrome laser printer, Model HL-2140/ 2170W
One of their cheaper models; just does simple B&W single page printing.

I opened up a very big document of a few hundred pages.
The print option gives me the option to print "ALL" or "Just This Page"

I was careless, and didn't select the print only a single page option.

Now, no matter what I do, press, or turn the printer on or off, it always wants to come back to printing
the entire document.

I guess it's all loaded into it's memory.

How do I clear the printer memory, please, so I can go back to printing single pages ?

Much thanks,

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??!

OK, so I grew a big pair of cajones and decided to just "go for it" on my main machine and try the inplace upgrade. I crossed my fingers and started setup off the DVD then downloaded the updated setup files...

BTW - I have previously run the Win7 upgrade advisor and found a few mobo drivers I knew I'd need to update afterwards like SATA RAID. No other issues were reported.
When I crossed my fingers and clicked upgrade, I waited anxiously... then a dialog box popped up informing me that I had issues that needed to be resolved before setup could continue:I need to update my laser printer driver <---???
I need to possibly remove iTunes <-- that's no big deal!
So, I closed setup and went to brothers support site looking for drivers... None were listed but I found a link to the Win7 driver update release schedule. Guess what these ID10Ts are doing with my driver??? Not gonna be released until December 2009!!! WTH??? Here is their release schedule: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...r_schedule.pdf

As a teacher one peripheral I rely on heavily is my printer...

However, a support call to Brother confirmed that they will not have Win7 drivers until early December as shown in the release schedule above!

Our office has a Brother 8840D printer attached to the network (a network of about8 computers, 3 of which should be able to print from this particular printer). About six weeks ago it inexplicably quit working from one computer. Printing from the other computers were unaffected. I was able to solve this problem by re-installing the printer software on the computer that would not print.

Now, the printer will no longer print again. Additionally, the other two computers cannot print either. I have tried re-installing the software, and the system is able to do so without problems, but no documents will print from the printer.

I even tried adding the printer using XP's "add printer" feature, but the printer no longer shows up as one of my choices (it used to).

All of the computers are running XP Professional. The printer quit in the middle of printing a large document, and has been unable to restore printing.

There is a "Reset Printer" option on the machine, but I am hesitant to try it for fear of messing up the working fax function.

Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

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 ?


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....

Hey everyone. I've ran into an issue I can't seem to figure out, and I'm starting to think it's a hardware problem.

I have a fairly new office printer, a Lanier LP137CN. Everything is printing good, with the exception of most of our PDF files. However...

1) printing in JUST black and white, the images and text look great
2) printing in color, the black text is blurry...but any other color on the page is fine

I've installed brand new drivers, both PCL5 and PCL6, plus the PS driver. I've printed from about 5-6 computers, three different operating systems (Windows 8, 7 and XP).

Thing is, this wasn't happening for months, and suddenly, it has become an issue.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I just set up my new Dell with Windows 7. I connected it to my Brother MFC-8840D printer with a USB connection. Windows 7 recognized the printer and set it as default. But I cannot print anything. I called Brother, and the person said that the proper driver was in the computer. However, she then sent me an email which indicated that Brother does not offer a driver for this unit with Windows 7, but that an appropriate driver can be found on Windows Update. I had no success going to Windows Update. Does anyone have an idea (short of having to buy a new printer)?


A:Windows 7 and Drivers for a Brother Printer

I'd try to get clarification from the tech support person about getting a working driver via Windows Update, and why it didn't work for you.

If Brother has a Vista driver try that.

Or try the Vista or XP driver using the Troubleshoot Compatibility option (assuming you have a self-installing executable right click on it to get that option). You can spend the better part of an afternoon with the "recommended" settings, and with XP or Vista with various service pack levels. Oh, and sometimes this works. Start reading from post # 18 in this thread to see how this technique worked for some USB wireless adapters.

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.

I've installed a Brother HL-1240 laser printer on a new Windows 8 computer. Brother says that Windows has built in the driver for this printer. Sure enough, the printer appears on my device list. However, the printer preferences says that the maximum resolution is 300 dpi. The specs for the printer clearly state a max resolution of 600 dpi.

When I used the printer on an XP computer I got 600 dpi.

Has anyone else run into the problem of the Windows 8 printer drive not allowing the maximum printer resolution?

Any solution? I chatted with Brother support and they said that since Windows created the drive that there was nothing Brother could do.

BTW - The printer functions in Windows 8, it just can't supply the max resolution so many of my pdf prints look pixelated.

Just my two cents but I seriously doubt that the Win 8 developers are in the driver development business for all 3rd party hardware. Just because it is inherently available via Windows 8 installation methods does not mean that it was created by the Windows 8 developers. With that said, I would be going back to Brother support and tell them that "they" made a mistake when they submitted that Win 8 driver for inclusion in the Win 8 operating system. Specifically, they forgot (or knowingly) did not include the 600 DPI option. And, while you are at it, ask them if there might be an alternative driver (w/600 DPI) available that might work for your specific printer. Good luck.

I just got a Mac (used) computer and hooked it up to my modem and router. Everything was working fine until I installed a new wireless printer (HP Envy 4520). The wifi is now only working through the printer. Other devices in the house show a wifi signal but it's not working. When I run a diagnostics test it says wifi does not have any problems. I'm assuming what has happened is it's locked into just the DNS for the printer because the network wasn't set up correctly to have multiple devices. I know this is a simple fix for someone who understands networking (but that is not me). Any suggestions?

OK, I'm using Windows 7 on a 64 bit quad core Asus PC in my part time business home office here.

About a year ago, I bought a Brother MFC-J6910DW multifunction. It was apparently poorly designed, because it printed in "reverse order", right out of the box. What this means is that, if I print a 100 page document, it will print the stack out with page 1 on the BOTTOM and page 100 on top, and if I want it in correct order ( of all my NERVE ) I'd have to hand sort it in reverse. YES, this seems INSANE but this is how they designed this printer!

The only "work around", I was told by support, was to set it to print in "reverse order", so that page 1 would come out at the top of the 100 pages. I kid you not, folks! So I did it, it sort of solved the problem, but was very slow at printing large files ( over about 40 pages ) because it apparently had to process them in reverse order in the Windows print spooler, then print them? So this went on until last week, when something went wrong in the scanner software and it could no longer communicate ( using this via wifi ) with my PC. So I had to uninstall the huge software app, and reinstall it again. I set the "reverse order" setting in the devices and printers settings, as the default, being I knew painfully about it, this time.

SO today, I had a rush project and had to print a file that was 42 pages. I started around 10 AM and was supposed to go out with the work around 1 PM. I needed 6 sets,... Read more

A:Solved: Problem printing multiple duplex copies on a Brother HL-5370DW

My problem was that I could not print multiple duplex copies with my HL-5370DW. No one here responded, but when I upgraded (for other reasons) to the new model HL-5470DW and had the same trouble. I called Brother and after going through a number of people one solved the problem. It was the driver. The hard part is finding a driver that will do what I want it to do. He found one and the printer is now working perfectly. Soif you have this kind of problem with your printer call Brother first and, if you have enough patient, one of their techs will most likely find a driver that will work for you. I probably should have done that first myself, but was hoping to avoid the time it took.

My brother printer won't print double sided ever since my hard drive crashed. I have a new hard drive now. I completely uninstalled printer and started over from scratch. Updated software and driver. My iPad will print to the printer and do double sided printer but not my laptop. What else can I do?

Windows 7 Professional

Haven't had the need to use my printer in a couple of weeks, so I don't know when the problem started. It is a Brother HL-2270DW that has been problem free. There are tests that can be tried using the printer itself and it says it has a good connection and should be functioning.

Nevertheless, when I click on print, the available choices are Microsoft XPS Document writer and Fax; the Brother unit is not included as an option. When I enter the control panel and look at the devices, my printer is mentioned with a Troubleshooting necessary indicated, but letting the troubleshooter do its job does not provice any suitable result.

I returned to a restore point the 23 of this month, but am not wanting to go much further back, because except for the printer problem, my computer is working great, and I don't want to remove necessary updates, etc. that might create a whole new problem.

I have shut down for half minute and restarted the printer to see if it might provide a benefit, but when I restart the printer, it's self trouble shooting feature suggest that the unit is both attached and working properly. Toner is over 90% remaining. BTW it is wifi and my router seems to be working perfectly. Drivers are latest.

Thanks for any input!

A:Printer problem needs guru. Looks like Windows not Brother problem.

Do you have it setup as a wireless printer? If so, reinstall the printer driver but use a USB cable initially.
Once that is working then setup wireless.

If you don't have the CD or can't find it, the drive is available from the Brother web site (I have the same printer).

I am using a laptop Inspiron 4100 with Windows XP s2. I have several old printers I would like to use. None of them will print any data on the page. The printer goes back and forth but no data. Any help trouble shooting would be greatly helpful. (Printers: HP 3915,845c Canon bjc4000,4100)

A:Windows XP Printing NO DATA to PRINTER

What do you mean by "the printer goes back and forth but no data?" Do you mean it appears to be printing but nothing is on the page?

How old are these printers? If they are ribbon or Inkjet, the ink has probably dried up and needs to be replaced.

If thats not the case, how are you connecting them..usb..parallel?

Just got windows 7 on dell 530 asprion. Did a clean download with windows 7 --had some storage memory problems--- but got that corrected . 7 works great runs nice but i am getting a problem from my dell aio 948 printer connecting to my documents i need to print. Finally got it to print after hours of tech support. Next day was printing from mail merge on works 9 problem returns and now still dont get print command connection.

As for a dell aio 948 if you have one they will give you a message in the right corner in front of your document showing you ready capacity to print using aio's ink jet system

printer prints and i get a nice copy of my document

unfortunatly when i start to print my document off of the file menu i choose print then get my preference window-- choose "ok"-- get a flash of a tiny download window -- possibley to say that the document has been seen and will be sent to the printer-- and that's the last command the computer shows -- my lower right capicity window does not show on the monitor as usual-- and no printing connection takes place

no paper goes through the printer either

sounds like a easy enough problem to fix --- print command just doesn't tell the aio that there is something ready to print--- but where do i go to fix the problem ?

Anyone know about ?

A:Windows 7 is a not printing with dell aio printer

I'm running the aio 948 on a test bed with win7 and haven't had problems other than to not let windows update load a new driver. It's old. Did you get win7 drivers from dell??
