That just means that you have no default printer selected. In Vista, click the start orb and type 'printers'; click Printers when it shows up in the search results. Find your printer, right click it and say set as default. Then try printing again.

Brother MFC 290C error cc3-003-00031c0e


Is this error shown on the computer screen or the mfc 290?
it doesnt look like a brother hardware error code. it looks more like a software crash error code.

try uninstalling all brother software, restarting your PC and reinstalling your brother printer drivers and software. (from original disc if you still have it)

If you still have problems you will most likely have to take both your computer and printer into a computer store for service.

Outlook won't print to Brother MFC7360N AllInOne Laser Printer


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.

When printing from word 2007 on vista bold type is gibberish


Try re-installing the printer driver(s) first. If no luck, then un-install the printer completely, reinstall and try again. You may also have an issue with an incompatible driver with Office 2007. After reinstalling the drivers, try to print a test page and see what happens.

Unable to print from word 2007


I had a similar problem. When I set up Vista I created an Administrator account, then set up my everyday user account. After hours of tweaking settings and re-installing printers, I realized that I could print from Office 2007 from my admin account but not from my user account. Of course, the error messages in no way indicated a permissions problem - they indicated I had a printer problem or a driver problem. Anyway, as a test, I granted my everyday account Admin status and now I can print fine. I had to sacrifice some security just to be able to do a simple thing like use the printer. Oh well, maybe "Windows 2057" will fix everything....
