I had a similar problem, and it was due to the IP address not being properly set during installation. (Note, I installed it as a network printer. If you installed it as a USB printer, this won't work) Try this:

Select Start->Printers & Faxes, a window comes up, hopefully your Brother printer is one of the printers.

Right-click on the printer icon and select properties

Select the "Port" tab in the window that comes up

One of the entries should say "Standard TCP/IP Port". Click on that entry and click the "Configure Port..." button, a window will come up.

In the "Printer name or IP address" field, you may have a name here instead of an IP address. (Mine was "BRN008077E21669") Change this to the IP address for your printer. You can get this by navigating the menu on the printer (Under LAN->TCP/IP). I changed mine to 192.168.1.80, since that's the address I configured my printer for.

Hit OK and Apply in the open windows and hopefully you wil be in business. Good Luck!

I have not been using the Brother MFC 465CN printer for a while. Bought and installed new cartridges, cleaned the print head several times (from the printer menu option). But, nothing is getting printed....


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Brother MFC-465CN printer Error code 51 unable to print


Usually this is caused by a foreign object or debris under the printhead path, or under where the printhead "parks."

Unplug the machine. Open the cover. Check the printhead path for little bits of paper, push pins, paperclips, staples etc. Note the location of the printhead.

If the printhead is at the far left, gently slide it towards the center (do not force it). Look carefully under where the printhead was stopped for debris. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Close the cover. Plug in the unit. Try again.

Not sure of the exact problem, but try a reset on it. Press Menu, *, 2, 8, 6, 4 within 2 seconds to get into service mode. Enter 91 to do a reset then 99 to exit. See if that helps and post here!

My printer is "offline"


Try disabling the firewall, printing, re-enabling the firewall. My printer keeps working after re-enabling the firewall (at least for a while). Not ideal, but beats reinstalling the printer.
