Question about Brother MFC-3240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Wasted 4 hours trying to install Brother 3240c and failed!

I bought a used Brother 3240c today without user manual and cds. I downloaded drivers from the internet but nothing happened when I connected the printer. Trouble shooting did not help. Nothing helped and I ended up wasting 4 hours after this.

The laptop simply doesnt say new hardware found when I plug the printer in. I used a telephone cable to connect the printer and laptop.

Any help regarding the successful installation of this will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That is because the telephone line connection you are trying to use is for faxing, not to connect it to the PC.

You need to use the USB connection / wire.

Printing after being on same phone line as printer/fax


This link will open the Users Manual, but you will need a PDF viewer such as Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader in order to open it.

Go to page 12-4 in Chapter 12, Troubleshooting and routine maintenance. Follow the actions recommended for the Unable to clean error message (and the four other Unable to... error messages).

Brother's MFC-3240C All-In-One


I do not know if Windows Vista driver software for the MFC-3240C is available on CD/DVD.

You can download either the Full Driver & Software Package or the Add Printer Driver Wizard for Windows Vista ("regular" edition) from this page.

Will not print


I have the same error message “Check the Troubleshooting and Routine Maintenance Chapter in User's Guide" I called customer service for "BROTHER 1-800-284-4329 USA; 1-877-BROTHER for CANADA. The Tech’s and I performed a series of diagnostic test, via the phone but were unable to solve the problem... Brother seem to believe that I have a defected printer head, Brother referred me to a local authorize service agent for Brother. I do have my User's Guide and there is no additional information that I was able to use to resolve this problem. HOW EVER, I am able to get the machine to print by opening the cover and close it as if I had installed ink, or removed a paper jam “SIMPLY OPEN AND CLOSE THE COVER”. I also vacuumed and blew the insides and the outside buttons of the machine with forced air from my vacuum, after all that I still have the same problem. My solution...buy a new machine mine is 32 months old and I probably have ran 15k or more print, fax, and copy jobs.
Some times we need to know when to move on, TIME IS MONEY AND TIME WASTED IS UN-REFUNDABLE.
GOOD LUCK
