Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

MFC 7820n: can't find device.

This is a network scanner and printer.

The network settings are correct. I can ping the device from my computer but when I try to scan, I get an error message "Device not avaliable. Check network settings and try again."

When I use the scan wizard to set up the device, and it can find the scanner on the network. When I use the browse functions in the scanner or printer settings, I can find it with either. I am puzzeled.

Also, I just realised the printer functions do not work either.

A re-cap. Printer and Scanner setup wizards find the device. Ping finds the device. But I cannot communicate with it.

Can't scan with mfc-7840 w, has worked fine for months, on laptop with xp, was working in another office for last 10days, came back to home office and it can't recognize device at all I can ping IP no...


I had a similar problem. I was able to print and scan for months and then all of a sudden could not scan anymore (from printer or through software interface). I then found out that the IP address for the scanner was not set properly. To fix this, goto control panel and scanner and cameras. Right click on the MFC7840W and select PROPERTIES. On the network setting tab, make sure that the IP address is the same as that on the MFC7840W.

BROTHER MFC-7820N-SCANNER FUNTION NOT WKING


Is it still working as a copier? If so then there may be something wrong with the printer's network interface or the networking at that jack or a problem with your switch. Have you tried moving it back to the old location or plugging the network cable into another wall jack, or changing ports on your switch?

Printing from XP to a Brother 7820N as a networked printer


We have multiple 7820s in our office. This would be a configuration problem with your windows XP computer. From the XP computer, open a command prompt and type "ping x.x.x.x" where x.x.x.x is the ip address of the 7820n. Make sure you get four successes. I would then uninstall the brother software and drivers and go to "printers and faxes" in the control panel and manually add the printer.

To manually add a network printer, with it's own print server, on Win XP:

1 Click "Add Printer"
2 Select "Local Printer Attached to this computer"
3 Deselect "Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer" then click "Next"
4. Click "Create a new port" and select "Standard TCP/IP" from the drop down. Click "Next". this will open TCP/IP Wizard
5. Type in Printer IP Address next to IP Address (Port name will autopopulate) and click "Next"
6. If wizard finds printer, it will show you "Finish" button. If you get a "Additional Port Information Required" window, something is wrong with your printer or windows xp network configuration.
7. When the TCP Wizard window closes, it will take you back to Add Printer Wizard. Select "Have Disk" and navigate to the \USA\WXP\Addprt directory on your Brother Drivers disc.
8. Select brxpadd.inf and click "Open" then click "OK"
9. Select "Brother MFC 7820 N Printer" from the list and click "Next"
10. Select name of printer, whether you want a default, print test page and DONE!
