Can't connect the Brother MFC-685CW printer to my HP laptop

Hi, I started to install the CD, When the window "plug in the USB cable" (I connected the USB cable from the machine to the laptop) appears, I can't click on the "next" button to finally get the machine connected.

What went wrong? Thanks for the help!

Hi,


There might be many reasons.Have you tried to run the CD directly from the CD folder.Go to My computer>Click CD drive>Access folder.

There would be a set up file. Try to run from there or Right click on CD drive>Autorun.

The reasons might be divided into 2 sections.

1. Faulty CD - One of the main reasons. If the original CD does not have .msi file,it would result in the above condition. Run the CD in other notebook and check. If the same issue is there, change the CD.

2. Corrupted Windows - This might be another reason. This might be due to deletion or corruption of a specific windows file. We cannot determine the name of the file as there are billions of files and .msi is a common in them as well.Reinstall the windows.

Unless try to update the windows, Make sure all the updated drivers are there.You can try restoring the notebook as well..


I hope the above information would help you to fix the issue.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How do i scan? using a brother MFC 685-cw..can't seem to use the scanner.. anyone help?


I have a Brother MFC 7840W and have struggled with the wireless features. Not sure how you have this configured but if wireless suggest you find a way to connect via LAN or USB...I cannot make mine work via wireless but hardwired works fine. To fix, I had to 'reset' the MFC (functions on the MFC itself) and then reinstall the software selecting USB as the connection method. Sounds crazy but once I did it worked.

My brother mfc 5840cn won't install on my new laptop which has windows 7 my old laptop was xp


Brother has not released a printer driver specifically for Windows 7 and this model. You can however use a basic printer driver if the Windows Update feature of your operating system is set to "automatic:"

To set Windows Update to automatic, perform the following: (if you know it already is set to automatic, you may skip these steps)

1) Click "Windows Icon" (Start button) on taskbar

2) From the "Search Programs and Files" box type "change device installation" and start search

3) Click "Change device installation settings" - the Device Installation Settings window opens

4) If it is not already selected, select "Yes, do this automatically (recommended)"

5) Click "Save changes"

Now you are ready to have Windows search for and install the generic printer driver for your model. Your computer must be connected to the internet in order to complete this installation.

Note: If you have previously connected the USB cable, disconnect it from the computer and printer for now.

1) Power on your printer

2) Now connect the USB cable to the back of the printer, then to a USB port on the back of your computer (not to a USB hub or keyboard port)

3) Windows should now automatically search for and install the latest driver for your printer.

4) The "Your devices are ready to use" message may come up on your screen upon completion. You may have to click "Close [X]" to close this window.

You should now have a basic driver installed for your model of printer.

You need to remove the existing printer files with this "Delinfe.exe". It should be part of the reinstall instructions (even contains a link for download). Did you read them? HTH

Hi,
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.
