Hi, Billy.

1. Remove your printer from Printers and Faxes
2. Disconnect the printer cable.
3. Restart your computer
4. Reconnect the printer cable.
5. Your computer should see the printer and install the driver.

Hope this helps.

The Brother MFC-7840W printer was installed on a USB connection. The printer worked the previous week albeit not for all applications but at least for the Vista word program. Now it doesn't respond to...


Hi there!
You can check if the usb cable is connected directly & securely from printer to your computer. Once it's verified. The display of your printer should show the date/time.
Since the printer is displaying offline you can open Control Panel, go to Printers folder right click on the printer icon and select 'Use printer online' If you have pending documents right click on the printer icon and click on cancel documents.
Try checking for a duplicate copy of your printer driver or check which printer driver is selected as the default and has the status ready.
Right click on the printer driver that has a Ready status click on printing preferences and click on print a test page.
Hope this helps! Vikroks

How to solve 'error S01'?


1. Verify USB cable is connected directly from USB port of printer and the USB port on back of computer. If not, connect directly to both the printer and computer and try to print. If the printer does not print, go to step 3.
2. VERIFY THAT THE BROTHER PRINTER IS SET AS DEFAULT
This is especially important if you use the print icon to print from within applications. If the Brother printer is set as the default printer, it will have a check mark. If it is not set as default:
To set your Brother machine as the default printer, RIGHT CLICK on the Brother printer and select SET AS DEFAULT (PRINTER).
3. VERIFY THAT THE PRINTER STATUS IS READY AND THE PRINT QUEUE IS EMPTY
A. Click on START, RUN
B. Type: CONTROL PRINTERS and click OK.
C. Locate the Brother printer in the list and hover your mouse over the Brother printer icon. Below is an example of what you may see:
Status: Ready (Could also state: USE PRINTER OFFLINE or PAUSED)
Documents: 0 (Could be any number)
D. If there are any documents waiting in the queue, right-click on the Brother printer and select CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS, depending on your operating system. This should clear the queue.
E. If the status states: USE PRINTER OFFLINE, right-click on the Brother printer and select USE PRINTER ONLINE depending on your operating system. This should set the printer driver ONLINE.
F. If the status states: PAUSED, right-click on the Brother printer and uncheck PAUSE PRINTING. This should allow the printer to resume printing.
G. If the status is ready and no documents are in the queue, attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful, verify the selected port. If USB is the selected port follow step 4. If USB is not selected,change the port to USB, then attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful proceed to step 4.
4. Turn the printer OFF.
5. Close any open programs.
6. Click Start, Run, type: control printers
7. Right click Printer, left click Cancel All Documents (if available). Confirm if necessary (click OK).
8. Right click Printer, left click Delete. Confirm if necessary (click OK).
9. Left click File menu, left click Server Properties, left click Driver tab, left click print model name, left click Remove button, click Confirm.
10. Close the Print Server Properties window to return Printers and Faxes window.
11. Check that the USB cable is properly connected at both ends.
12. Turn the printer ON.
13. Wait until printer has ready light or green status, watch the Printers and Faxes window to see if printer is automatically reinstalled.
14.a. If printer was automatically reinstalled, right click Printer icon, left click Properties, left click Print Test Page button. If the printer is not automatically reinstalled, call Brother Customer Service at 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437).
b. If printer was not automatically reinstalled, try a new USB cable. Ifthe printer still is unable to print, call Brother Customer Service at1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437).

MFC 3420C. I am getting error 41


While there are many ways to prevent Brother printer error code "41

I want to find out if my mfc 3420c still works. The printer gives the message, that it needs the colour "magenta". Still I want to print a piece of paper - but it just won't!! I have installed new drivers,...


Yes. It will not print without all the ink cartridges having ink. Even if all you want to print has not color(just black), if magenta is out, it will not print. Very frustrating.

Problema con impresora MFC-3420C


Hi there

Error 41 means there is a major problem with the printhead, usually
requires a print head replacement.

My advice is to take it to a
Brother service centre while if it is under warranty.

If it's out of warranty they are usually a throw away job, the heads cost as much as the printer.

Sorry I know what it feels like, just have a go and see what you can do, clean the heads and so on.

All the Best and good luck: Pineworks

Don't know how to print


If the driver installed correctly you should just be able to open up the file you want to print. Then go to File, Print and select the Brother printer. Click print and see if it works.

Good luck!
