Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a Brother 420cn hooked up to my laptop. It was working recently and now it is not. I have tested the printer (by itself) but it does not seem to be connected to my computer. I haven't changed any internal configuration and am now at a loss for where to look to add a hook-up. Any advice?

Try using the Brother Clean up utility (at the brother website support section in Downloads and uninstall the existing software and drivers. Then reinstall the whole mess and see what happens.

I assume of course, that you have verified that the USB cable you are using is in good condition, and that you have run the Installation diagnostics that came with the printer, to see what info is showing there.

The Brother web site doesn't list an actual MFC-425CN - the MFC-420CN seemed to be the closest fit.

The print head is clogged.Try powerful cleaning:
Press menu, then start black copy, then four times arrow-up quickly after another.Machine will be in maintenance mode
(all lights will flash).
Press 7-6-4 and OK (or start-black-copy).
When finished press 7-6-3 then start black copy,
printer will do a power purge.
Leave maintenance mode by pressing 9-9.
If this not help better think about new printer, because cost of repairing this one is profitable.

The black ink will not print in my Brother 420CN


Seems like this is a problem for everyone. Try a test page (in printer function) It could be that the heads were destroyed if your previous cartridge ran dry.
