Outlook won't print to Brother MFC7360N AllInOne Laser Printer

When I try to print an email from Outlook to my Brother MFC-7360N AllInOne Laser Printer, it appears to work (no error message, etc), but then nothing prints and nothing shows up in my print queue. When I checked what printer is selected, it shows the printer as "Brother PC-FAX v.2.2" just as it does for Word and Excel and other programs. I can print from other programs such as Word or Excel. I'm running Windows 8 on my Dell desktop computer.

Must be set on Brother MFC-7360N series. Set on PC-FAX will not print with all programs, as it is printing with an output through the fax. Go to control panel, select devices, printers to change to pc-7360 series. This should print on all programs.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-490CW Won't Print

If you have installed something since yesterday you might want to use system restore. the program might be causing the flaw. If not dont worry. You will need to uninstall the printer from your printer page and reinstall it. depending if it is a networked printer or a usb connected. If networked all you have to do is follow the install wizard. but if it is a usb you will have to go to the company's website and download a printer driver. after that it should work. dont forget to restart your computer. sometimes that can help too.

SOURCE: Brother 2140 Printer Problem

It is most likly not linked to word. Word is likly sending the prints to the wrong, obsloete or wrong copy of the printer.
When printing check to see where the doc is being sent to print.
Then go to printers to see which printer is your 2140 active and ofcourse do a test print. If the test print is good this is the correct link to your printer.

SOURCE: brother MFC-465CN printer Error code 51 unable to print

Usually this is caused by a foreign object or debris under the printhead path, or under where the printhead "parks."

Unplug the machine. Open the cover. Check the printhead path for little bits of paper, push pins, paperclips, staples etc. Note the location of the printhead.

If the printhead is at the far left, gently slide it towards the center (do not force it). Look carefully under where the printhead was stopped for debris. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Close the cover. Plug in the unit. Try again.

Why brother mfc 7360n printing envelopes wrinkle paper

Do U mean wrinkle the envelopes?,,,,I can solve some MFC-9840-CDW issues, but the 7369N is a guess. Read your manual or do a google search.....There maybe a setting in the 7360N that adjusts printing for card stock and envelopes....

Why a 'no paper' error when it is full of paper?

Usualy that is happened when you try to print another format , to solve that put some paper in the manualy tray.

When you receive a mail from another contry in another format : ex A4 , and your printer is set to letter , brother says no paper because the machine want to print in that format of paper.
Pay attention to the setings in printer driver in computer.

Brother mfc-7360n black lines printing on everything

Well now, wouldn't you think Brother would be monitoring this and other sites and offering their notion of fixing the problem? Nah. With my beast, the left of center vertical lines (two heavy with lighter ones in between) run more than 1/2 page length, but only in doc feeder mode. Flatbed mode working ok. Someone should rip off the feeder, disassemble, clean, and explain how that could possibly fix the problem. As far as cleaning the narrow glass strip at the left side of the flatbed, (clearly shown on the machine itself as if black line syndrome is expected regularly), someone should try that and explain how that could possibly fix the problem. Didn't do squat at my house.
