Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Installation Whenever I use the installation disk, the system seems to hang up and never finishes the installation. The Paperport programs and Pro suite for the scanner and fax get installed, but the printer itself does not.

Unplug the printer and then install the drivers. Then it should auto detect when you plug the printer back in again after the installation is done.

I would recommend getting the latest drivers and firmware update from their website below. Maybe they fixed your issue in the latter updates.

Brother CD may be dirty or corrupted. If it is dirty wash it in cold water and dry it up with a soft cloth, being careful not to live any cloth hair on the disk.
Easiest thing to do in this case is downloading the driver from this link.
If all the above doesn't work then you may need to trubleshoot something in your windows installation. In this last case first step can be doing a system restore to the last checkpoint before you installed the Brother, and then reinstalling all brother software and drivers.

PaperPort installs a PaperPort Black and White Image driver and a PaperPort Color Image driver. These drivers allow you to import documents onto the PaperPort desktop via the print feature.

If one or both of the drivers are missing, follow the steps listed below to run the PaperPort repair program. This program will re-install the drivers:

I have installed PaperPort 11 some time ago and it all worked fine. Recently Paperport started installing after every reboot. The installation fails with the error: 1: The engine of the installscript is...


  1. Open the folder C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Driver\ from the machine.
  2. There should be folders with numbers in this Driver folder, for example 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 1050, 11. Delete these folders.
  3. Download ISScript11.zip.
  4. Unzip this file. For more information on unzipping files, see How Do I Unzip a File in Windows XP? or How Do I Use the WinZip Utility in Windows 2000 or Earlier?.
  5. Double-click the IsScript.msi file. This installs the IsScript engine for this version of the installation.
  6. Now try running PaperPort 11 again. If it still has problems opening, try reinstalling PaperPort 11.

How di I reinstall PaperPort Print Driver? PaperPort 11, Windows 7


Instructions extracted from http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproappcompat/thread/f903e1ed-e15b-4cb6-a20a-50f628f95939

"{Ok, here is how I got the whole package from my Brother MFC and PaperPort 11 with the printer utility.
First if you have tried to install the suite or paperport and are having issues uninstalling through windows download this wonderful program that removes everything called Revo Uninstaller at www.revouninstaller.com and choose the freeware version.
Now go to the Brother website and search for the Windows 7 MFLPRO Suite and you should download a zip file that contains the suite for multiple MFC’s. Unzip it and set it aside. This is only the Brother Suite for the Brother MFC and the Control Center 3.

TO find the Windows 7 version of MFL PRO go here
http://www.brother-usa.com/downloads/default.aspx?ProductGroupID=5

PaperPort 11 will have to be installed from the actual CD that came with your printer. Inside the CD with Windows Explorer File System locate the file Inst32.exe that should be inside the CD under the install folder then MFC-465CN (my model) then usa folder. Remember the location.
Now set everything aside and let’s start. Open up control panel, click on programs and features then choose Run programs made for previous versions of Windows. You have just opened up program commutability, now click next and wait now choose not listed and press next. Browse and fine the Inst32.exe file that I mentioned earlier. Now click next and then choose Try Recommended Settings, Next your setting should say applied and compatible with Windows XP SP2, then you will see a tab on the next screen that says Start the program. Click on it and allow it to start installing this will start the suite and the first thing that installs is PaprPort, be patient let it continue to run and after it will install the PaoperPort print driver, then after it will start into the MFL PRO Suite. This is where my installation halted because the suite is a 32Bit version it would not continue. I looked and PaperPort program and printer where installed. Close it up and pres next.

Finally now you can install the MFL PRO for Windows 7. Open up the folder you downloaded from Brother and look for your model and you will see the setup.exe application, click on it and start installing MFL PRO along with Control Center 3. That’s it, and your setup should be complete.}"


Hope the thread from http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/w7itproappcompat/thread/f903e1ed-e15b-4cb6-a20a-50f628f95939
will help.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
