    Are you referring to print as in print from the computer? It should not matter what the printer control panel default is.

How to install LAN Brother MFC-5840CN on Windows 7 when original CD only has XP driver. Windows Update list specifies MFC-5840CN USB, but machine has option for LAN - is the driver the right one?


You cannot use the full driver and software package now. BUT:
Printing is possible, scanning and FAX is not possible at the moment. You download the Vista driver (x32 or x64) from the official Brother site and install it with the Printer Wizard in Windows 7.

I DON'T RECEIVED ANY THING I LISTEN THE NOISE FOR THE FAX


I guess the printer works fine when printing from pc. In this case plz read the manual. It explains the settings for the fax connection. You might have chosen a wrong fax setting. manual can be downloaded here:
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/Public_s/index.html
(choose your country and your machine). Here you can find a faq too.

In case the printer doesnt print anything (even no document) from pc or doesnt do copies) it could be that your printhead is clogged.
