There is only a manual double sided printing avaiable:
After the first side was printed you have to turn the page into the papertray again.

Canon bubble jet printers can do double side printing but the back side black print will be mingled through C/Y/M ink!

My brother MFC-420CN is printing way to slow. It there anything I can do to make it go faster?

There's no way, unless you sacrifice quality.

The printer prints at just the one speed, unless you select "draft" print-quality, or print "black-only", instead of "colour".

Brother 420CN printer will not print black ink. Have replaced the cartridge and after several cleaning cycles, it still will not print properly. Test Print shows colors are fine but black ink is hit and...

I have a brother MFC 3240C. My Black ink stopped printing(initially printed horizontal faded lines and gradually got worse), the other colors were printing fine. I tried cleaning numerous time( 50 -100 times over 1-2 weeks ). Still no improvement. The way I print now is:
1. I go to Printer Properties
2. Change Media type from "Plain Paper" to "Inkjet Paper".
3. Change Quality to "Photo".

This takes a long time to print 1-2 minutes per page. However, this works for me since this is my Home printer and use it for printing only few pages here are there.

Good Luck

Brother mfc-420cn problem

Can you print from another programm? Or is it just MS Works? And can you scan into a programm? If you cant do either, there is a problem with the USB or network connection. Please check plugs and cable. Anyway, it could be helpful to reinstall the drivers, too.

Brother MFC-7820N Laser Printer

The 7820N prints double-sided manually using the drivers. From Windows, select File / Print. On the pop-up window, click on Preferences, select the Advanced tab, click on the A/B pages icon, and select Manual Duplex. "OK" your way out. When you print, you'll first confirm to print one side of all pages. Then follow the instructions that appear.
