If he only wants to connect to his own computer then a USB cable. If he wants to use it on a network he will need a Ethernet cable. It is not unusual not to get either cable with printers, annoying as the cables aren't expensive.

I got a new computer EMachine. I wanted to hook up my Brother MFC 420 using my CD, but no luck. Maybe I have it hooked up wrong. My last computer had a telephone line hook-up. but new one doesn't. I...


Hello s_fields75. I just read your problem and was wondering if you checked your cable connections. You stated that you may have hooked it up wrong. I would definitely make sure your cable connections, USB, etc., are correct. The printer is an all-in-one and should just automatically find the connection through your modem for the fax feature. If not, you might need to get a splicer for your phone line (you can pick one up at radio shack for less than $10). Unhook your phone line from the wall jack. Plug in the splicer into the wall jack, then plug the phone cable into one jack and your fax phone cable into the other. That should do the trick. If not, you may need to download an updated driver from emachines or brothers' websites. Hope that helps!

How to connect my brother mfc-8460N scanner can't


You will need to use a cable to use the scanner.

Either a USB cable to connect directly to computer or an ethernet cable directly to router, then you will need to install the driver software.

Sublect:Problems With My MFC 420 CN / All In One Machine


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Mfc 420 does not turn on


Do unplug from power outlet.

Replug again.

Machine should automaticly turn on.

If not, the main circuit board is defective (quite often on machines older than 2.5 years).

If you re an european citizen contact brother for warranty. EU warranty is three years ;-)

If not, you need a new mfc cause spare part cost more then a new one :(
