Unplug your printer from the computer.

Go to your start menu, and open your control panel. From there, doubleclick on the printer icon. You should see your printer listed. Right click on your printer and choose 'uninstall' (it might be 'remove' or something like that.) Unistall the printer.

Restart your computer (make sure the printer is still not hooked up). Reinstall the software that came with your printer. Then you can go back into your control panel, printers, and look for an option that says 'add printer' Add your printer (maybe even restart the computer) and finally plug the printer back in.

See if that works, and let me know if it doesn't, or if these directions are too technical.

Can I pull up and print past history for faxes on my MFC-7420 ?

You can see your past history and can have its print if possible.

  • Insert your printer's USB cord into your computer's USB port.
  • Open your printer as a program by double clicking its icon that is located on your desktop (PC) or dashboard (Mac). This icon will pop up when your computer recognizes your printer via the USB cord.
  • Select the "Jobs" pull-down menu at the top of your screen while in your printer application.
  • Choose "Show Completed Jobs" from the "Jobs" pull-down menu
  • View every printer job completed or canceled.

you probably had a document that was not using 8.5 x 11 paper or the print settings were the printer to use the manual tray.
