Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer
I have just bought this printer and it shows as offline in the status monitor I have tried many things to bring about recognition but the pc wont pick up the printing function of the MFC. I can scan and pull photos from the printer. Help!
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!
