Printer status offline

Remove the printer from devices & printers. You may need to cancel any currently queued documents in order to delete the printer. Reboot the PC. Go back to Devices & Printers, click, "add a printer", let it search & reinstall your printer. If this doesn't fix it, repeat the steps but also uninstall the printer's software in the control panel, "programs & features" & download a fresh copy from the maker's website. Run the software before plugging in the printer. Once the software has run, you can plug it in to the PC (it may actually tell you when to plug-in during the software install).

Good luck!

HL-2270DW need install drivers, do not have CD

Brother has the drivers for most of their printers on their support site. For the HL-2270DW, go to . What OS does your computer have? Select your OS and then your language. Click on the Search button.

The Full Driver and Software Package should be the first one listed after the search. This is the version for most users. Just click on the Download & Information link. Then click Download. Look further down the page for the stand-alone drivers.

If you have another driver installed (for example, the Windows USB driver for a locally connected printer), uninstall the driver first. If it's the Brother driver, use the Brother uninstall tool. Otherwise remove the printer in the Devices and Printers Control Panel. (Click Start > Devices and Printers. Right click on the printer and choose Remove.) Then remove the USB cable if connected to the computer. Install the Brother software and then connect the USB cable when prompted to do so.

Note: this download does not include any third-party software that was on the original CD.

I hope this helps.

I have a new computer w/ Windows 7 -- and my OJ 4315 won't connect. Except it did! Long enough to print one page. now it says can't find the driver. What should I do? I have rebooted, unplugged,...

Unplug the printer.

You should Open Devices and Printers. Then remove the printer. Then open Device Manager and remove the USB connection for the device. Use the "Show Hidden devices"option from the menu. Remove any USB connections that show up there with an exclamation point.

Plug in the printer.
Check to see if you can see a valid connection to this printer.

Step 1: Begin troubleshooting by removing media and connected devices
  1. Turn on the computer and remove any CDs and DVDs from their drives using the CD/DVD eject button on the outside of the CD/DVD drive. If you are unable to turn on the computer and/or eject the discs, continue using these steps. Remember to remove the discs when the computer has power and you are able to open the drive door.
  2. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cable from the power outlet.
  3. With the computer turned off remove all other media and devices that are connected to the computer except for the mouse, monitor, and keyboard. Remove any floppies, printers, USB and FireWire devices, music players, cameras, and flash memory cards.
  4. With the media and devices removed, turn on the computer.
  5. If the computer has the same startup problem, leave the devices disconnected, turn off the computer and continue to Step 2 . If the computer does not have the same problem, continue using these steps.
  6. If the computer is able to open Windows after the media and devices were removed, one of these items was preventing Windows from opening. Find which device or media item is causing the problem by reattaching or reinserting each to the computer one at a time. Restart the computer each time a device or media item is added until the startup problem reoccurs.
  7. Once the media or device that is causing the problem has been identified, do not continue to use it. You can troubleshoot the device or media further. Here are some helpful troubleshooting tips:
    • Now that you know which device is contributing to the startup problem, you can search the Internet or visit the manufacturer Support Web site to find more help and information.
    • CD, DVD, floppy, or camera cards that are damaged, dirty or scratched may interfere with the startup process. Do not start the computer with media in the drives.
    • The computer may try to start an operating system from an external storage device, such as a USB or FireWire drive. You can immediately work around this problem by attaching external storage devices only after Windows has opened.
    • Camera cards that are left in printers can cause startup problems. Do not leave camera cards in printers.
    • Some printers that have media card readers might contribute to startup problems when used with computers that have older BIOS versions. Updating the BIOS on the computer may resolve the problem. For further information about how to find and download BIOS updates for your HP or Compaq computer, please refer to Updating the BIOS .
  8. If the problem still exists, continue to the next step.
