Question about Brother MFC-5440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Disk full error

When I try to download faxes to the computer (WIN XP Professional) I occassionally get a disk full error. I am using the Brother MFL-Pro Suite. This stops all other faxes from downloading and I have to clear the printer's memory before I can download more files. I have been reduced to printing all faxes because I can't rely on the program to send them to the computer.

Hi Miriam,

After looking closer at your printer pic, I have assumed it to be the Brother MFC-440, if so here is a link to the downloads you will need for it.

click on the link then click the "more information" link at the end of the Full Driver and Software line. It will take you to a page where you can download the required software for vista.

Printing from XP to a Brother 7820N as a networked printer

We have multiple 7820s in our office. This would be a configuration problem with your windows XP computer. From the XP computer, open a command prompt and type "ping x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the 7820n. Make sure you get four successes. I would then uninstall the brother software and drivers and go to "printers and faxes" in the control panel and manually add the printer.

To manually add a network printer, with it's own print server, on Win XP:

1 Click "Add Printer"
2 Select "Local Printer Attached to this computer"
3 Deselect "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer" then click "Next"
4. Click "Create a new port" and select "Standard TCP/IP" from the drop down. Click "Next". this will open TCP/IP Wizard
5. Type in Printer IP Address next to IP Address (Port name will autopopulate) and click "Next"
6. If wizard finds printer, it will show you "Finish" button. If you get a "Additional Port Information Required" window, something is wrong with your printer or windows xp network configuration.
7. When the TCP Wizard window closes, it will take you back to Add Printer Wizard. Select "Have Disk" and navigate to the \USA\WXP\Addprt directory on your Brother Drivers disc.
8. Select brxpadd.inf and click "Open" then click "OK"
9. Select "Brother MFC 7820 N Printer" from the list and click "Next"
10. Select name of printer, whether you want a default, print test page and DONE!

Your software can be downloaded here, directly from Brother:

Select "drivers" from the first drop down window.

Select your operating system from the second drop down window.

Select your language from the third drop down window.

Download software.

*Be sure to UNPLUG the printer form the PC before installing. ONLY plug it in once the on-screen instructions tell you to do so.*

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:

Should you require any further assistance regarding the

computer related issue in future please feel free to
contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.
