SOURCE: cant connect printer to wireless laptop.

have you setup the wireless connection in between the printer and the laptop...
your laptop is working wirelessly with the internet but for making the printer to use it wirelessly the printer should be also a wireless printer.

and if the printer is a wireless printer then you have to setup the connection in between the printer & laptop to work wirelessly.

SOURCE: "brother mfc 7840w printer goes offline and i cannot print need turn printer on and off.

The solution, and it took me a long time to find the simple solution, is to right click on your printer, click properties, click the ports tab and click on your Brother printer and click on configure port (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one). What you want to do is update the IP Address. The problem is that the printer does not have a static IP address, it is dynamic. If you want to confirm that, go to your printer and press the reports button and print out the network configuration report. Your IP address will show on that. It's really the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Problem with my printer Brother MFC-240C "Print unable 4F"

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart,
try this step by step.without missing any thing. thanks

Can a Brother MFC-470 DW used with this tablet it is wireless?


Yes. You can print from your tablet but first you have to make sure that your printer is connected wireless to your network, then on your tablet when you go to print something, choose the network printer.

My brother mfc-7420 will print but won't let me scan and i can not find my disk


Go to the Brother web site and put in your MFC info and you may download it for free. If you find it to be difficult you may call Brother for support and they will walk you through it. Do not have to be under warranty. Hope this help you out.

I have a mfc-j410 and am trying to go wireless with an EVDO u210 usb mobile broadband on my laptop. Can not get it to connect wireless. Any suggestion would be appreciated


What you are proposing cannot be done as a mobile broadband modem is sort of a 'mobile phone' device (e.g. Dual band for CDMA 2000 1X and EVDO Rev.A networks 800/1900MHz) and your printer would at best be WIFI 802.11 compatible (ps. MFC-J410 has no 'W'ifi support).

Brother MFC-J410 is USB connection can only be used to connect to a PC/Laptop or print server/router (which may have WIFI support).

My MFC290C printer will not print in black. I changed the ink and it still won't print black. I changed the color of the type and it will print in colors, just not black. I ran the cleaning cylce...


You need to call Brother at 1-877-brother and tell them your mfc is "missing black". They will tell you where to take it to get the print head replaced under Brothers' warranty. This is a VERY common problem and Brother will cover the cost to repair it.

Brother 420cn mfc, cant print It asks me to read in the routine maintenance of the trouble shooting guide.


Did you use non-Brother brand ink refills? If so, the print head is probably clogged. If that is the case, it's almost cheaper and easier to replace the printer itself. Sorry. I loved my MFC-210C until it quit, and the internet is full of people complaining about the whole MFC series. Going on 2 trouble free years with my Canon, better print, better optics, wireless, but no fax, unfortunately.

I have a Brother MFC-7340. It says that it can print wirelessly, but I don't know how to make it discoverable, if that's possible. It also doesn't have an ethernet port, so I can't connect to network....


this is the support site for that printer http://www.brother-usa.com/support/default.aspx?PGID=5&R3ModelID=mfc7340 if you look at the quick start manual here http://www.brother-usa.com/support/default.aspx?PGID=5&R3ModelID=mfc7340 to have the network adapter the model number needs to have an "N" as part of the model 7340N
otherwise you will have to use USB connected to a PC - and the PC on to share on the network

your laptop is working wirelessly with the internet but for making the printer to use it wirelessly the printer should be also a wireless printer.

and if the printer is a wireless printer then you have to setup the connection in between the printer & laptop to work wirelessly.

by uesing a special software.

The mfc cant print any mirrow images by itself.

But why do you need to print a mirrow? as far as I remember is the print straight right thru. The foil has to be turned onto the shirt before you run the iron?!!!
