Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Troubleshooting downloading I bought this printer about a year ago, seldom used, downloaded it on my old computer, worked great! Trying to download it on my new computer and it freezes up at this point:"Plug in the cord your computer and turn on printer", not in those exact words, but this is what it means. I've tried several times, and it keeps freezing up at this point. Had no problems in downloading it on my old computer. Why doe sit continue to freeze up? Thanks...Gail

Re: troubleshooting downloading

Gail, download the driver for your pc system from the brother homepage download/support (full installation about 156 mb) and try again.


In case it wont do good, post here again and please write your pc system (win/mac), too



If you run vista it WONT work because the dcp/mfc machines with no. X10 (where X is a no.) are not supported for vista from brother side.

Printer wont work just feeds paper straight through

First try reinstalling driver software on your computer.

Either use printer CD or download from website:

Epson Driver Download

Epson America, Inc. - Support

If problem persists after downloading software, then that means that ink had clogged the printheads after drying up on old installed cartridges.
In that case either order a new printhead from Epson, or replace the printer.

I recently bought a new Gateway computer and when I tried to install my canon printer from the disc, it would not install it for me. I have a Canon Oixma MP210 SERIES printer that I bought three months...

You might want to check Canon's website to see if they provide a downloadable driver that will make your printer Vista compatible. Years ago, I had the same problem with an Epson all-in-one when making the jump from Windows 98 to XP. I was able to download and install a driver from Epson that restored most (but not all) of the device's functions.

Usually you can download complete drivers and scanning applications from the manufacturer's support web site. I usually throw my CD's away and download the most recent drivers and software off of the site - even when the printer is new the drivers on the manufacturer's site are usually more recent than the ones on the CD.
