HELLO, MY WIFE BOUGHT A BROTHER MFC-685CW.WE Cant even get passed getting the buttons to work. when you depress any key it just beeps and does nothing. We have not even got to installing the drivers yet...


Hi,

Most multi purpose devices such as the Brother MFC-685CW has some sort of transport lock. This could either be plastic lugs/screws or nuts strategically located. In some versions, these could simple be plastic colored tape. The initial set-up instructional pamphlet should indicate where they are.

Your particular model has also yellow protection caps/tabs in place when transported without the ink, have you checked those?

Alternately, you can try a reset by simply unplugging the unit from the mains for a couple of hours.

Not knowing where you are, I couldn't forward a contact number. However, you can try here and click on your region. Alternately, pls try:
Brother International Canada, Toll-free: 1-800-361-6466
http://www.brother-usa.com/; Support Phone Number: 1-800-284-4329

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi, My family recently purchased a Brother MFC-210 and brought it home thinking you could hook it up with a USB cord. To our surprisement, no USB slot was on the printer and could only be hooked up with a...


You need to use a category 5 Ethernet cable, not a standard phone cord. A Cat5 cable has 8 wires, where a phone cord only has 4. Surprising that you got anything to print. Look at the connector to verify that it has 8 connecting pins. It is also wider than a phone connector plug. You need to plug the printer into a Ethernet Hub or Switch which in turn connects to your ethernet (network) card or port on the computer. It will most likely not work if you plug it directly into your computer.

Brothe MFC-240C paper jam error msg won't clear


















**, it is not fixed. I followed instructions on Brother web site and was able to find a piece of paper near the printhead, so I removed it. The printer makes a grinding sound when it tries to print and the same paper jam error returns and can't be cleared. I beleive that the printer repair cost will be more expensive than replacing it with a different printer, and it won't be Brother brand. I probably would not be able or have the tools to do any complicated repair job.
