    Do you have the phone jack plugged into the computer and the printer? What do you use to get online? AOL, Bellsouth, AT&T?

    Did you unplug the phone cord from the printer and then try to get online?

It turns out my dad had the usb cable plugged into the ethernet port instead of the usb port. It works fine now.

Thanks for the response.

My Brother MFC 440cn is on "offline", how ge it back to "online"?? Richard Lyman, Suffolk, VA


Check to make sure the usb cable is connected to the back of the printer and to the usb port on your computer. If your using a usb hub, remove and reconnect the printer cable. Windows should redetect it, but you may have to reboot.

Brother MFC-440CN USB Printer double prints letters


Did you use Brother Genuine Cartirdges????
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine.

When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, mis-align the letters & put stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Yes, an empty ink cartridge will prevent the printer from functioning.
Not all printers will do this, but the Brother MFC series will not print if any one of the cartridges are empty. Replace the cartridge and all should be fine.

Scanner not being recognized


Knowing your PC-System would be helpful: Is it Win (and what version) or is it Mac?).

Did you connect to a USB-hub? This wont work! You have to connect directly to a USB-port of your PC.

Do connect only by a USB-cable NO longer than 2-3m!
