First, I would recommend NOT trying to manually install this printer by using the add printer wizard in windows and selecting the the port and drivers to use. I would use the install cd to set this all up, it makes setting up this printer MUCH easier. If you are unable to use the install cd then get the IP address for the printer from your router admin page then with the printer "installed" go into the printer properties, go into the port, add a port, and instead of using a printer name just type the IP address for the printer in. Also for any networked printer make sure you don't have a firewall blocking it (this would include making sure that if the printer requires a port opened in the router that all requests for that port are routed to the IP address of the printer).

Unable to init. 4f in Brother MFC j615w


Sorry to say this error refers to a print head failure. It is not a user changeable part. It will need repairing by a Brother service agent and it will probably cost more than the printer is worth.

I lost my network fax and scanning when I upgraded to Win 7 as Brother had no support for Win7 and this printer. Very disappointing.

However, I recently downloaded the MFC-8370DN install package from the Brother website and installed it on my Win7 64 bit Asus laptop. The installer couldn't find my MFC8820DN, but I manually entered the IP address (192.168.0.100 in my case). The install completed cleanly, after a reboot I can now start Brother Control Centre 3 and scan and fax from my 8820DN over the network. All good, no need to buy a new printer just yet...

I scanned successfully. Next attempt says "Unable to initialize the scanner". I can't get past this (Brother 8820D)


the program you were scanning to probably didn't release the scanner. first thing to try is turn the scanner off for a minute or so and then back on.

The Scanner needs to have Software Installed. Have you installed the PAPERPORT software that came with the Machine?

ERROR 7A


For the error code "7a" to be fixed permanently, you need to ensure that the main PCB is fine and is working in good condition.
If the error code is caused due to malfunctioning of the main motor, then you need to check the whole setup by connecting it with another motor.
In this case, make sure that there is no mechanical load present on the main board.
While fixing this error code, you will notice that the motor runs slowly initially and then picks up the speed later.
