Hi Carla,

Yes, you may download the printer software from Brother support. The following link will have 3 "boxes" where you may input your choices:

1) In the top box, I recommend choosing "ALL". This way you may select from all the latest software available for your model.

2) In the second box from the top, be sure to select your computer operating system.

3) The third box, language.

You may need a new printhead, You get a 1 year warranty with Brother, if it's older than a year, you can buy a new mfc 490 for around $120.00, the printhead will cost more than that to replace and only have a 30 day warranty.

I have a bother printer model mfc-240c and a dell dimension 2350 computor. i need instruction on how to and where to connect the printer to the computor


The USB port on the printer is somewhat hidden on this model,

Lift both lids so you can see the inside of the printer(where you installed the ink) to the right of it there is an indented area in the grey plastic. Both the USB port and the telephone/fax port are located on a vertical section of the indented area. Once you plug the cables in there is a track to run the cables in that will drop them out the back of the printer.

Of Note: this model usually doesn't come with the USB cable included, if there isn't one in the box you may have to go back to the store and buy one for $10-$20 dollars.

Once you have the cables installed on the printer, run the disk that came with the printer, DO NOT plug the USB cable into the computer until the program on that disk tells you to.

Once you get through the foray of nexts and ok buttons it will eventually ask you to plug the printer into the computer and turn it on. Windows and the installer program will then complete the installation and you're on your way.

Hope This helps FixYa

Error 46

Getting error 46 means waistinktank filled up.

You need a new waistinktank.

Im not sure if you can get one at a service partner (see brother homepage of your country). Ask for it. If your machine is still in warranty they will do the job for free.

BTW: You must have run a lot of cleaning cycles! Is it because you run generic ink? The waist ink tank of the lc51 carts last at least 3 years at normal office condition.
