It's probably a simple matter of updating the printer drivers for your system. (Here's a tutorial that will guide you through the process.)
Go here and after choosing your region check the bulletins for info about updated drivers for your printer and OS. You can also access general info and support for your model here., which includes a setup guide with FAQs.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

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.

I have a brother all in one mfc 8460n and I just got a new apple laptop computer and installed windows 7 on it and i need to get my printer to work from my laptop. it works from the desktop computer but...


Wow, you've got two issues here. First of all is the Brother compatible with Apple and is it compatible with Windows 7?? Sounds like you need to go to brother's website and see if there are drivers for Apple and for Windows 7.

Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "BrotherSupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

I have a brother MFC 465CN printer. Is it


It is compatible according to the Win7 compatibility Center. If you have any problems, check your cables or network settings.

I just got a new Dell Windows Vista Laptop. I currently have a Brother 7420 printer, fax, scanner, copier combo. I can't get the scanner to work. Please HELP... Thanks, Pam


I presume the print and fax parts work. Can you make a copy? Have you checked the driver software? The CD that came with the equipment usually installs the scanner software as well. try reinstalling the software and see if it works.
