Question about Brother MFC 8500 All-In-One Laser Printer
The printer used to work, but now I cannot print through neither the USB port nor the parallel port on my Brother MFC-8500. Has this printer given up the ghost?
Ack, double negative. Bad English...
I've had this same issue. It seems to start happening when the device enters sleep mode, it's like the printer just vanishes. When you remove the printer completely and reinstall it it works again until the printer goes into sleep mode then it disappears again. I've had two do this and once they start I haven't found any way to stop it from happening periodically and with ever increasing frequency until we finally get rid of them. Suspect some level of i/o controller or board failure.
