Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Have a Brother multi-functional MFC685Cw. Rarley printed anything with it. Always uploaded any fax and printed it through the office laser. Everyday this thing cleans it self and after 6 months of no printing is out of ink. The thing will now not transfer to the computer so I can see the faxs. It still has some black ink but will not print it. Called the support line they say it does that when it runs out of ink. Solution is to buy more ink. Is there away around this. I started to hate this machine when an ink low message interfered with operation long before it was out of ink. I have several faxes in the thing and they are ransoming them till I buy ink. Thanks Rob

Ink and Toner is how Fax and Printer companies make their money, the machine is just a way to sell supplies.

Yes, you will have to replace the Toner/Ink because they lubricate the print heads/drums.

Fax will not print: I connected the fax machine and plugged it in. It sends faxes OK. When a fax is sent to it, nothing comes out. The sending fax doesn't receive an error message, seems like all went...


Does the machine print anything? such as a directory or print when making a copy? I rather suspect it does not. When an incoming fax is recvd does the paper get pulled in and come out blank? If so your problem is with printing (or lack of it). Perform head cleaning. Also make sure the black cartridge still does not have its deal stuck on it. Post again if you still have problem.

Can i print black prints without refilling the color ink cartridges? my color cartridges are empty but the black is full. The printer wont let me print black and white files.


Not certain on that model of Brother but on mine I was able to get it to print by changing the settings in "Print Setup" If you change these so that it can only print in black and whiye, it won't look for the colour cartridge, like mine didn't

try to reinstall the printer software.
also make sure in control panel, printers and faxes, your printer is the default printer ( v mark on it ) .
if not, right click on your printer and choose set as default printer.

USB CABLE FOR MFC 1770


This unit cannot be used as a printer unless you purchase a separate special interface This is from the Brother manual for your product. This was written some time ago and I'm not sure that it is still available. I did a search on Brother and found that they still offer it. Whether it still in stock or not I don't know. Their price is $99.00. Add to this the price of the thermal ribbons and it does not make a very efficient printer. You can purchase the optional Multi-Function Link® package (also called ?Missing Link?). Multi-Function Link® turns your fax machine into a multi-function center, by enabling you to use your fax machine as a printer and a scanner and to use it to fax messages from Windows® applications in your computer. The Multi-Function Link® option is for Windows® 3.1x and Windows® 95/98. Multi-Function Link® is available at most Brother retailers. If you cannot find it, you can order Multi-Function Link® directly from Brother. The item number is PCI-1. Wish I had better new for you. Ed
