Question about Brother MFC-9420CN All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

No printing cd

I had to basically wipe everything off my computer because of a virus. I lost the cd to add the printer to my computer. How can I start printing again? Is there any free downloads for the disk or would I have to purchase it?

You need to go to the manufacturers web site and download the printer drivers from them...eg if you´ve got a canon printer go to canon.com in the menus look for support and submenu drivers and downloads.....you´ll need your printer model handy......drivers eg printer software are free .....some sites charge for user manuals

Windows comes with drivers for many HP printers.

You can try to install your HP deskjet 5440 by going to (depending on operating system) "Start", "Printers and Faxes", "Add Printer". Select a local port. Select "HP" and Model "HP Deskjet 5440".

If 5440 is not in your list, or if you want the latest driver, you can download the driver for your specific operating system here:

I try to print from Microsoft Word or the internet or any other program and its not printing anything i tried everything! i even did the test to see if something is plugged and it did fine and printed but...


This is most likely due to a driver fault. The "driver" is just a small piece of software that lets a computr communicate with other devices (peripherals). Disconnect the printer and put the CD in the computer (the CD that came with your printer) and follow the instructions. If no instructions or interface loads on the screen when you insert the CD then simply connect the printer to the computer...when the message box prompts you to specify what was connected to the computer, then browse for the driver by directing the brose option to the CD drive where the driver is located. If this fails or if it is too hard to do, then go to the canon website and go to their support page. Here you can download drivers for your inkjet by searching for the model. Once you have the corrct driver installed then:

  1. In Windows XP, click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
    In Windows 2000, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
  2. In Windows XP, under Printer Tasks, click Add a printer. In Windows 2000, double-click the Add Printer icon.
  3. Follow the instructions in the Add Printer Wizard. If you want to print a test page, make sure the printer is turned on and ready to print.

Lexmark x4580 connected via USB will allow printing once when computer started after that comuunication problem error received every time. I have checked all firewall settings on Mcaffee and Windows (all...


1) Disable both firewalls and see if it prints.
2) If it prints, then it's a firewall roblem. Enable your Windows firewall first. If your printer works just leave the McAfee firewall disabled. You don't need both anyway but leave the ant-virus enabled.
3) If it doesn't print with your Windows firewall enabled, try it the other way. Windows firewall disabled, McAfee enabled.
4) If it doesn't print in any of these cases try re-installing the software for your printer.You will want to make sure that McAfee is totally disabled (anti-virus and firewall) and turn off off your Windows firewall. Here are the steps for re-installing software. If you don't have the cd let me know and I'll provide you with a link for it.
Removing and reinstalling the software
If the printer is not functioning properly, or if a communications error message appears when you try to use the
printer, you may need to remove and reinstall the printer software.

1 Click Start �� Programs or All Programs �� Lexmark 3500-4500 Series.
2 Select Uninstall.
3 Follow the instructions on the computer screen to remove the printer software.
4 Restart the computer before reinstalling the printer software.
5 Click Cancel on all New Hardware Found screens.
6 Insert the CD, and then follow the instructions on the computer screen to reinstall the software.
Note: If the install screen does not appear automatically after you restart your computer, click Start �� Run, and
then type D:\setup, where D is the letter of your CD-ROM drive.

If this fixes your problem please rate this as fixed. If it doesn't and you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you out' I'll be waiting to see how it turns out. Thanks.
