Can not get my father's printer to print anything from the internet. He has Vista on his system. My brother and myself have both followed the information from the "Help". Deleted and reinstalled printer. What is the problem? His printer is a "HP Deskjet D1500" series. Thank you...Lisa Tomlin

Why does my Brother printer goes into Sleep mode and I can't print??


I have copied in the illustrated instructions for resolving printer status is Offline or Paused. (For Windows®) but if distorted please view here.

The printer status is Offline or Paused. (For Windows®)
Description:
To solve the problem, please see the following:

  • If the printer status is Offline:

    Check that the printer is online using the following steps:

    VERIFY THE BROTHER MACHINE IS POWERD ON AND THERE ARE NO ERRORS

    1. If the LCD screen is blank, then the Brother machine is not powerd on the machine to see if it wakes from sleep mode. If it does not, then verify that it is plugged into a working outlet and any power switches are turned to the ON position.
    2. Check the LCD screen for any error messages. An example would be "Paper Jam" or Ink/Toner Empty". If the LCD screen shows an error troubleshoot to clear the isssue indicated.

    CHECK THE PRINTER STATUS

    NOTE : These steps or screens may differ depending on the operating system.
    1. For Windows® XP Users:
      Click Start => Printers and Faxes


      For Windows Vista® Users:
      Click Start => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers


      For Windows® 7 Users:
      Click Start => Devices and Printers



    2. For Windows® XP and Windows Vista® Users:
      Right click on the icon for your Brother machine and choose Use Printer Online.

      For Windows® 7 Users:
      Double click on the icon for your Brother machine => See what's printing => Printer => Use Printer Offline (Take the checkmark off.)

Note If the problem still continues, do one of the following:
  • If you find the Related FAQ's at the end of the page, click it and check another solution.

  • If you don't find the Related FAQ's, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".






  • If the printer status is Paused:

My DCP-1200 Brother printer is printing blank pages when connected to my Vista 64 bit laptop. It prints with XP. Is there a fix for this?


Probably,

You'll have to go to the Brother website, follow links for support and downloads, you need to download and install a VISTA 64 bit compatible driver for your printer.

My 9600 just prints pages and pages of numbers and symbols when I send anything to print


Sounds to me like you are using an incorrect printer driver, or corrupted settings. Please disconnect the printer USB or LPT cable the under control panel >>Printers , uninstall your printers. Surf to the brother website and download a new driver for your printer and Operating system version Vista / XP ect. then install the new driver software and reconnect the printer. Kind of a pain, but it will fix it. Take care

Its a problem with Vista with the print spooler. Try the following.

  1. Click start then Control Panel.

  3. Right click the Brother and select Properties
  4. Click on the Advanced Tab
  5. Select print directly to Printer, then Apply
This should do the Trick, If it doesnt let me know, I know of another fiix

My Brother MFC5860cn is printing very spottily. Can I clean it myself or do I need a repairperson.


On the left hand side of the front of the printer itself there is a button labeled "Ink". Hit that button and follow the prompts on the screen and it will take you through the steps to clean the heads and also align the printing if needed.
