Here is a link for the Mac OS 9 driver for the MFC-420cn:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/dlf/000000/000600/dlf000680.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc420cn_us&type2=1&os=9&flang=4&dlid=dlf000680



If you need a newer version of Mac OS , you would have to purchase it. Mac OS does not update from 9.1 to 10.X
Mac 9.1 is about 10 years old.

In May 2002, at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Jose, California, Steve Jobs, accompanied by a coffin, held a mock funeral[5] to announce that Apple had stopped development of Mac OS 9. Mac OS 9.2.2, introduced in December 2001, was the final version of Mac OS 9, and the end of the classic Mac OS.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I have a new MacBook Pro and cannot get my Brother printer to work with it. The computer recognizes the printer but does not print.


Hi,
Did you install the Mac driver for MFC? The MFC comes with driver for windows and Mac. Place the Mac Driver disk to DVD slot and run the installation for your MFC printer. Follow the instruction to complete the installation.
When you try to print something, make sure the MFC printer is selected.
If you've done all of this and still not able to print, please turn off your MFC, wait 15 seconds and turn on again to see problem solve or not.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading.

MFC-420cn printer says install cartridge. But there is a new one just installed.


by useing original brother carts instead of poor designed generic ones.

Or by answering the lcd-display question if you have changed the cart.

or by making sure that the plastic nose secures the cart which was placed well into the holder.

If that doesnt work, the circuit board might be defective.
