From the Brother website: The MFC-5440cn offers both a versatile flatbed and an automatic document feeder with faxing and copying that don’t require the use of a computer. Add to that the spectacular high-resolution printing and scanning with both a USB 2.0 full speed and an Ethernet interface and you have the perfect all-in-one for the Small Office/Home Office user to create and print professional color documents. You can even print borderless photos.
Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

What chords are needed for the hp officejet 7110 all in one. The chord to the electrical outlet, to the internet, the computer, the fax, and anything else I might need. They got lost in moving


I must warn you that this printer has an external power source - if you have lost it you must order it directly at HP, never use some cheap replacements bought at the store, only the official part. The power cable that plugs in the power source is your average pc power cable.  
After that you will need a LAN cable (for the internet) an phone cable (for the fax) and a USB cable (for the connection to the pc). All these cables can be very cheaply purchased even at
 WalMart for $5 each.

Having trouble faxing on my lexmark 4650 wireless printer. i keep getting connection failed status. i use a verizon mifi220 for my internet connection... can anyone help?


If I'm not mistaken, the fax on your unit still uses the phone line to fax, not the internet, so you'll need to connect an RJ-11 phone cord from the unit to a phone jack in order to send faxes from it.

The printer does not respond to print order. I get a message saying camera is connected, it is not.


The Camera Detected message is your PC detecting the scanner on the Printer - What happens when you try and print?

Also, try the following:

Remove the printer USB cable from your PC -> Restart your PC -> Log back onto your Profile -> Click on Start -> Control Panel -> Printers & Faxes -> Delete all printer entries -> Restart your PC -> Log back onto your profile -> Plug the printer USB cable into the back of your PC -> Go into Printers & Faxes -> Right Click on the Kodak 5100 AiO entry -> click "Set as Default" -> Now try to print.

Computer says Orinter is Offline but is connected. Has the Fax button highlighted. Only have Copy, Fax, Scan, Memory Card to select from, which one should be highlighted for printing from connected PC


In order to print from PC you should choose COPY function. To check the connection between PC and your printer perform these steps:
  • Right click on printer driver name (Canon PIXMA MX 850 in this case)
  • Choose Properties
  • Click on Maintenance tab
  • Click View Printer Status: the status should ONLINE in order to print or scan
If still Offline,please recheck USB cable,reinstal it,or compare with another cable.

I have bought a 4 in 1 photocopier and wish to use the equipment to receive faxes whilst conected to the computer modem and telephone service. My fax is not connecting. Please assist Model x5495


You need to plug the copier direct to the telephone jack.
The copier will not receive any faxes as the modem on the PC is intercepting them.
If you need the PC on-line via the modem then you will need to swap out when you want to receive faxes.(or get a second line for the faxing)
If you do not use the modem on the PC for anything then leave the cable plugged into the copier.
It should automatically receive your faxes.
There will be an option somewhere for you to be able to print the fax directly or to transfer to the PC to view therefore saving paper and allowing you to make changes and fax back.
Hope this is helpful.
Please let me know if you get it to work
