I had the same problem and what I found was that the IP address I used did not agree with the IP address stored in the printer. You can find the IP address using the setup TCP/IP option from the menu button. I changed the IP address in the TCP/IP port properties and it worked. I don't know how it changed, but I suspect the IP changed because of a conflict. When I turned the laptop off the IP went back to the original one that I had been using.

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.

My brother MFC-420CN is printing way to slow. It there anything I can do to make it go faster?


There's no way, unless you sacrifice quality.

The printer prints at just the one speed, unless you select "draft" print-quality, or print "black-only", instead of "colour".

Brother 420CN printer will not print black ink. Have replaced the cartridge and after several cleaning cycles, it still will not print properly. Test Print shows colors are fine but black ink is hit and...


I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

I'd venture to say that if you haven't used it in a while the ink dried up and clogged the print head. It is probably a job for a service center. Good luck

Blurry printing with brother 420cn printer


The print utility is accessed from the front panel menu button. The menu should be self explanatory.

Also check that the cartridge is pushed in fully so it's not sucking air through the system.

Can the 420CN print double sided pages


There is only a manual double sided printing avaiable:
After the first side was printed you have to turn the page into the papertray again.

Canon bubble jet printers can do double side printing but the back side black print will be mingled through C/Y/M ink!
