Hi, I have a Brother 7820N and every time we print, we get a vertical smudge down the middle of the page. The machine is printing, but this awful "smear" lined each page printed. Any assistance is...


I would try a new print cartridge. There should be a cartridge cleaner built into the machine settings. Also the ink reservoir might need to be cleaned.

I have a tower and a lap top which i want to use my printer to beable to print on either one without changing over the usb cable. how can i set up my printer to print on two pc


The MFC-5860CN is a networked printer, so if you have a network card in your tower, and one on your laptop also (which most have), then this would be the easiest way of doing it.

Can both machines go on the internet together? If so, simply plug your printer into your router, like another PC, set the network settings, and install it on the computers as a networked printer. You may need the driver CD in order to do this.

Printing from XP to a Brother 7820N as a networked printer


We have multiple 7820s in our office. This would be a configuration problem with your windows XP computer. From the XP computer, open a command prompt and type "ping x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the 7820n. Make sure you get four successes. I would then uninstall the brother software and drivers and go to "printers and faxes" in the control panel and manually add the printer.

To manually add a network printer, with it's own print server, on Win XP:

1 Click "Add Printer"
2 Select "Local Printer Attached to this computer"
3 Deselect "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer" then click "Next"
4. Click "Create a new port" and select "Standard TCP/IP" from the drop down. Click "Next". this will open TCP/IP Wizard
5. Type in Printer IP Address next to IP Address (Port name will autopopulate) and click "Next"
6. If wizard finds printer, it will show you "Finish" button. If you get a "Additional Port Information Required" window, something is wrong with your printer or windows xp network configuration.
7. When the TCP Wizard window closes, it will take you back to Add Printer Wizard. Select "Have Disk" and navigate to the \USA\WXP\Addprt directory on your Brother Drivers disc.
8. Select brxpadd.inf and click "Open" then click "OK"
9. Select "Brother MFC 7820 N Printer" from the list and click "Next"
10. Select name of printer, whether you want a default, print test page and DONE!

The 7820N prints double-sided manually using the drivers. From Windows, select File / Print. On the pop-up window, click on Preferences, select the Advanced tab, click on the A/B pages icon, and select Manual Duplex. "OK" your way out. When you print, you'll first confirm to print one side of all pages. Then follow the instructions that appear.
