Still working on it. The weekends are my best bet as I have little time to concentrate after work.
Thank you and I will let you know.

You can call Lexmark Tech Support and request one, they will send it out to you.

If you are printing wireless thru a D-Link adapter, you are going thru too many connections. Let me explain: I have worked on electronics most of my life and the old saying goes, "the more breaks you have in a connection, the more chances you have that something, somewhere in between the breaks, will cause you to have more problems".

Go thru your Uverse directly with a RJ45 or CAT5 cable, if possible. If not, then hard wire it using a USB switch. This allows multiple devices to use the same printer.

Hope this helps.

uninstall the printer and reinstall it if it says it is printing to your printer. under printers your printer should be set as default. test by selecting print from the menu. it should come up to a screen showing you which printer you are printing to.

Hey rip
Have you made the brother printer the default?
Have you installed the OCR software?
Some OCR software packages prefer you to scan into a document.
I use a HP unit that will not allow me to scan a document unless I scan it into a compatible software format, written or typed pages into WORD, photos in photoshop etc.
Try uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling it again
Turn off, any anti virus and firewall software you may have running and if you can update the software from within itself, update it
Dont forget to turn your anti virus and firewall software on after you have finished
go to the Brother website and download the latest drivers for use with your chosen operating system

Have fun !!

I had this same problem and it doesn't look like anyone else has solved it yet. I spoke with tecnical support and got it resolved. 
I have windows vista so your instructions might be slightly different. 
start> computer> double click the C folder> drivers> printer> 1200(or whatever series printer you have)> applications> then the  set up folder with the CD icon. 
It will install the scanner software. Also, the website has been updated on lexmark so that includes the all in one software now. So, if you have the older version from 2008, then delete the old software out of your printer folder and go to lexmark and install the new one. 
Any other questions, email me. twizted_dreams_jubilee@yahoo.com

It could be that your printhead needs cleaning. Open the Lexmark Solution Center application on your computer. Go to the Maintenance tab and select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page, forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them. Then try to print a document again to verify that the print quality has improved.

The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.
  2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.
  3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.
  4. Close the printer cover.
  5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.
  8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.
  9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
  10. Load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

gamal, do you mean installing software using your cd. IF that, then using cd drive and following on screen direction should do it. I hope you cd drive is ok.
