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.

I have got c250 sansa MP3 player today in post.But the packet came without user manual and installation CD.Let me know how to charge it,load music and gettng started


I just got a reconditioned one from Buy.com today, and there were no manuals or CDs with it either.
You can download the manual at this URL: http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/c200-ug-eng.pdf

You can also find drivers at the Sandisk website, although I didn't look for one for this player.

Can not initiate


... Are you sure about the exact error message?

This link seems to have a related explanation for something that sounds kinda similar

If not, from http://www.brother-usa.com , you can find your printer's support page and then e-mail support. Nothing involving the word "initiate" appears in the user manual; I looked.

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.

Hi,
The issue you have posted does require little more information in order to isolate the issue to fix it. Information like have you installed the printer driver and connected the printer cable to the system in your system for the printer to communicate, are you getting any error messages when you are trying to scan or print, weather you have used the printer earlier and it was working fine till the recent past or it was just being used for sending faxes only and printing and scanning was not tried earlier, However let me provide you few steps that you cold try to fix the issue.
  1. Click on start point Control Panel and click on it.
  2. In the control panel window click on the icon labeled “System”
  3. Click on the Hardware option at the top and then click on Device manager.
  4. On the device manage page check if you have any devices under “Other Devices option with a YELLOW ! mark, if so right click on the device and left click on uninstall.
  5. Close all the windows and then insert the Driver disk for the Printer in the CD/DVD Disk Drive to install the drivers for the printer.
Note: At this point of Disconnect the printer cable if it is connected to the system tower, and do not connect the cable until the installation wizard prompts you to do so.

If you do not have the Printer driver disk handy then you can download and install the printer driver form the link below:

  1. During the installation the wizard will prompt you to connect the printer USB cable to the system tower, so go ahead and connect it.
  2. Once the installation is finished restart the computer.
Should you require any further assistance regarding the
printer or even require assistance regarding any other
computer related issue in future please feel free to
contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.
