Question about Brother MFC 8820D All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Printer won't install

I've downloaded the drivers for a brother multi function printer 8860DN, as I don't have the disk.  When I try to run the install program it tells me to reinstall the MFC suite.  I then try to just do the print driver and it won't acknowledge the print drivers I downloaded.

It won't print at all

You do not list enough details for a good description of the problem.

If you are using Windows 8 64 bit, Brother has developed new software that functions on W8. Go to the Brother support site and download and install the software specific to your operating system.

The correct drivers need to be installed - included with the software? - or find the drivers on the Brother site and install them as well.

These suggestions may also work for other operating systems.

Hi, I'm trying to install a Panasonic Printer KX-MB771 but I have no disc, can you help please. Thanks Corinne

Hey Corinne, to install a printer on your computer all you need is the driver for your according printer, since you have lost the Installation disk you can always download these drivers from the internet. After you've downloaded the drivers plug in the printer into your computer and run the installation. Follow the instructions and you should be good to go.

Here is a link where you can download the drivers for KX-MB771 for all Windows Operating Systems:,panasonic-kx-mb771-mb773-mb781-mb783-driver-multi-function-station-1-11-windows-9x-me-nt4-2000-xp%28x32-x64%29-vista%28x32-x64%29-english/downloading.html

Have fun :)

I need control center for my brother mfc-240c

You can download that from Look near the top-right corner for the blue box labeled Service & Support, and click "Downloads." You'll have to select your machine's family (Multi-Function) and model, then your computer's Operating System. For most machines, Brother offers a choice of barebones drivers or the complete package; you'll want the full package to get the Control Center.
Brother requires that you install the driver package before you plug the machine into your computer. If you have already plugged it in and let Windows try to install a generic driver or something, you may need to download and run a utility for uninstalling the machine completely before installing the package properly. That utility program is probably at the bottom of the page of drivers on the Brother site.

Usually, when you don't have the drivers for your printer, you go to the manufacturer's site and try to find the drivers. This time, I did it for you, so here is a link. All you have to do is choose your OS and download the drivers

Hope that will solve your problem!
