The black cartridge (Brother LC51) doesn't print on my Brother MFC 685CW. The other 3 cartridges print just fine and passed the Print Quality Check. Running clean cycle doesn't help


In order to print in Black and White using grayscale, you will need to adjust the printing preferences within the driver. To change the printer properties complete the following steps:


1. Open the Printers Folder:


  • Windows 2000: Click Start => Settings => Printers.


  • Windows XP: Click Start => Printers and Faxes.


  • Windows Vista: Click the Start button => Control Panel => Hardware and Sound => Printers.


  • Windows 7: Click the Start button => Devices and Printers.


2. Right click on the Brother printer driver and left click Printing Preferences.


3. Click the Advanced tab.


4. Select Grayscale.


5. Click APPLY => OK. Your printer will now print in grayscale.

How do i scan? using a brother MFC 685-cw..can't seem to use the scanner.. anyone help?


I have a Brother MFC 7840W and have struggled with the wireless features. Not sure how you have this configured but if wireless suggest you find a way to connect via LAN or USB...I cannot make mine work via wireless but hardwired works fine. To fix, I had to 'reset' the MFC (functions on the MFC itself) and then reinstall the software selecting USB as the connection method. Sounds crazy but once I did it worked.

I'm running Mac OS 10.6 on my portable and the MFC-7840W won't priint. I've update all the drivers but when I try to print, the bluetooth window always says, can't find printer. HELP.


Hello,

The MFC-7840W does not support bluetooth connection.
It can connect wireless if you have a wireless network or connect wireless directly to your airport on the mac.

Since it is not printing, please follow these steps.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Reboot the computer.
6. Go back to Print and Fax (step 1 & 2)
7. Click on the + icon to add a printer
8. Click on the "default" tab and add the printer.

If you do not see the printer in this list, then printer is not connected.

If you do see the printer in the list but you still can not print, you will need to remove the drivers completely and reinstall.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Go to Mac HD \ Library \ Printers
6. move the brother folder to the trash bin
7. Empty the trash bin.
NOTE: You may need to reboot the computer before you can empty the trash.
8. Once the trash is empty, reboot the computer.

Now you need to install the following drivers.

You need to remove the existing printer files with this "Delinfe.exe". It should be part of the reinstall instructions (even contains a link for download). Did you read them? HTH
