This unit cannot be used as a printer unless you purchase a separate special interface This is from the Brother manual for your product. This was written some time ago and I'm not sure that it is still available. I did a search on Brother and found that they still offer it. Whether it still in stock or not I don't know. Their price is $99.00. Add to this the price of the thermal ribbons and it does not make a very efficient printer. You can purchase the optional Multi-Function Link® package (also called ?Missing Link?). Multi-Function Link® turns your fax machine into a multi-function center, by enabling you to use your fax machine as a printer and a scanner and to use it to fax messages from Windows® applications in your computer. The Multi-Function Link® option is for Windows® 3.1x and Windows® 95/98. Multi-Function Link® is available at most Brother retailers. If you cannot find it, you can order Multi-Function Link® directly from Brother. The item number is PCI-1. Wish I had better new for you. Ed

My 9600 just prints pages and pages of numbers and symbols when I send anything to print

Sounds to me like you are using an incorrect printer driver, or corrupted settings. Please disconnect the printer USB or LPT cable the under control panel >>Printers , uninstall your printers. Surf to the brother website and download a new driver for your printer and Operating system version Vista / XP ect. then install the new driver software and reconnect the printer. Kind of a pain, but it will fix it. Take care

Looking to buy Brother mfc 1770 all-in-one Thermal Printer. Do you know where i can still purchase on since they are no longer made


That's not going to be easy, but I'd keep a watch on eBay and some other auction sites. I saw that one was sold last week on eBay, so you just have to check daily.

Good Luck

Has it printed correctly before?

(1) Try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

(2) Update the USB drivers

Mfc-210c will not print

do you run mac or win as a pc system?

for pc: delete all drivers by help of the agressive remover tool (see: choose your country, your mfc and download the drivers needed).

Take mfc from power outlet and disconnect from usb port. Run the above mentioned procedures and reinstall the drivers again. When asked, replug mfc to power again.
Connect the usb cable directly to pc!!!!!!

If you run mac I cant give you an adivece yet, because I m not common to mac os yet (end of year I will know better cause will get an imac then, sorry!)

The issue you have posted does require little more information in order to isolate the issue to fix it. Information like have you installed the printer driver and connected the printer cable to the system in your system for the printer to communicate, are you getting any error messages when you are trying to scan or print, weather you have used the printer earlier and it was working fine till the recent past or it was just being used for sending faxes only and printing and scanning was not tried earlier, However let me provide you few steps that you cold try to fix the issue.
  1. Click on start point Control Panel and click on it.
  2. In the control panel window click on the icon labeled “System”
  3. Click on the Hardware option at the top and then click on Device manager.
  4. On the device manage page check if you have any devices under “Other Devices option with a YELLOW ! mark, if so right click on the device and left click on uninstall.
  5. Close all the windows and then insert the Driver disk for the Printer in the CD/DVD Disk Drive to install the drivers for the printer.
Note: At this point of Disconnect the printer cable if it is connected to the system tower, and do not connect the cable until the installation wizard prompts you to do so.

If you do not have the Printer driver disk handy then you can download and install the printer driver form the link below:

Brother mfc-420cn problem

Can you print from another programm? Or is it just MS Works? And can you scan into a programm? If you cant do either, there is a problem with the USB or network connection. Please check plugs and cable. Anyway, it could be helpful to reinstall the drivers, too.
