Get drivers that are compatible to your operating system and stop(uncheck) the bidirectional support on the installed printer port.

I have my mfc-240c already loaded as default printer on my pc, and am now trying to load the driver onto my macbook pro. I no longer have the manual. It is asking me for the node name and I have input...


You can find updated drivers and the manuals for your printer here:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc240c_all

I suggest you remove the current drive , download and install a new driver for your Macbook Pro to see if this makes a difference.

If necessary the website has an extrensive Troubleshooting section that may be of assistance.

Keep getting a pcl error message on the display screen


Most commonly, LaserJet printers are accessed over a network. To workaround the issue, you may try to connect your PC directly to the printer using an IEEE-1284 compliant cable.
or update your driver
The PCL XL error may occur if one or more of the required driver files are missing from your computer or are outdated. In this case, you may visit the HP Website for the latest driver updates, download them, and update the existing driver files.
If the problems with the PCL 6 driver continue to occur, remove it from your system. After removing, install the PCL5 printer driver that is shipped with your HP LaserJet Family Printer. If this driver is not available, use the latest preinstalled driver that is available on your Windows computer.

hope this helps

Prior to past few days printer worked fine. Now it prints a few postcards then gives a print buffer message on printer screen and from there on it prints gobbledy gook. Now it won't even print a test...



Sounds like you cover all the bases. I just wonder if you reset the unit via the service mode?
resetting the printer should have cleared the memory.

Hold down select and return while powering on machine, hold until self test comes up on display then press go, this will get you into service mode.

Run the memory diagnostics.

We have an Offline message when attempting to print. We have unplugged the printer, unplugged the router, modem and shut down the computers and then restarted all. We still have the problem.


Usually these messages are from communication issues between the computer and the printer. I have to go to the printers support/driver site and download the latest and greatest drivers for that printer that matches the operating system. I then uninstall the printer and get rid of all software and drivers for it. Make sure the printer is unplugged and off. Install the new drivers. If this printer is connected to a router and all computers in the home access it through the network, then it can be reinstalled simply by powering it up, attaching it to the router with an ethernet cable, opening up the control pane > click on printers > click on add printer > choose network printer > windows will search the network and find the printer and display it. Highlight the printer when it displays and click ok. Windows will install and initiate the printer and ask you if it is to be the default printer and will ask if you want it to print a test page.

If this printer is connected to the computer via usb cable, once the drivers are installed, attach the cable to the printer and start it up, windows will recognize the hardware and automatically load the drivers you installed. It may want to search windows update for an updated driver, click ok and let windows set the printer up....that includes all communication protocols.

Network printer will not print


Hi Savo,

Is printer being recognized by network? What does device manager indicate? If there is a Yellow exclamation point, you need an updated driver. Try uninstalling software, removing access cable to printer and reinstalling software then re-connecting printer cable.

My Xerox Phaser 6250 won't duplex all of a sudden


I don't have an answer, but I can add some detail since I have the same problem (6250 that suddenly won't duplex).

I have a wired network with multiple Vista machines connected and have been duplexing just fine for YEARS with the same PCs and same drivers. One day my wife complained she couldn't duplex and I messed around, updated drivers, rebooted everything, etc. etc. and finally gave up and sent the print job from my laptop where it duplexed just fine.

About a week or so later I noticed that my laptop would no longer duplex either! Once again I updated the drivers, rebooted, tried different settings, etc. etc. but no luck.

I'm pretty convinced that a Windows patch has caused this issue (which is why there is a timing difference between my machines). I've rolled back my system to remove several patches and things seem to work fine again, however I'm not exactly sure which patch causes the problem AND within a few days Microsoft reinstalls the patch automatically.

Unfortunately I'm not confident that Xerox will put much effort into fixing this driver problem since this is not only an "old" printer, but I don't think many people do much duplexing (so there won't be many people yelling for help).

I'll let you know if I find a better work-around or fix.
