Question about Brother MFC-7820N Printer
My printer stopped printing from my desktop. I have turned it off and back on; disconnected the cables and put them back in; stopped and started the printer spooling; and talked nicely to it......still won't work!
Since it prints from your laptop and not your desktop, it sounds like it's either printer driver or the Wi-Fi connection. Does your desktop computer see/recognize the printer? If not, then it is something to do with the wireless connection on your desktop computer. If it does recognize it, then it is likely the driver (program software) on your desktop that tells is how to communicate with your printer. In that case, you should go to "device manager" by right-clicking on your computer icon or accessing it through the control panel. There should be an option to update your driver. In this case, something with your computer (such as a OS - Operating System update) may have occurred which caused the desktop software (which tells it how to work) to stop working. I hope that makes sense. Take care and good luck!

This is common problem with Brother Printers. I am going to assume you are using Non-Brother branded ink cartridges. Brother cartridges have a cleanser in the ink that most generic cartridges don't have. This in turn causes the jets to clog and not allow ink to pass through them. The fix is to go buy a couple of Brother cartridges and do a cleaning with those cartridges. You may spend some money doing this as a cleaning wastes a lot of ink, but it will clean the injection lines and fix the printer. You could also consider buying a new printer. I know this is not the answer you were looking for, but it is the true answer. I just bought a new printer due to this fact.
In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

here's a solution i came across when dealing with the same problem. apparently the printer expects all of the cartridges to be full and has a sensor to make sure they are even when only printing black. hope this helps!
