If an ink has run out it won't print. I've had to re-instaff the driver software once also.

Outlook won't print to Brother MFC7360N AllInOne Laser Printer


Must be set on Brother MFC-7360N series. Set on PC-FAX will not print with all programs, as it is printing with an output through the fax. Go to control panel, select devices, printers to change to pc-7360 series. This should print on all programs.

Brother MFCJ870DW Cuts Off/Chops Off/Truncates Left Side Return Address By About Half An Inch On #10 Com Envelope, Suddenly Started Happening


Check carefully that you have specified it to use the # 10 and that the format does not include a wide margin. If that fails, try printing the Return address 'right justified' and see what happens.

Brother 240-c


try to run the cleaning on the machine 5-6 times, if this does not fix it the print head is really clogged and would need to be removed and cleaned manually by a tech. to clean press the ink button then ok twice and print the test page after it comes out it will prompt you for the cleaning, just keep going through this 5-6 times and see if it improves.

Can't address envelopes using Microsoft Word 2007 & Windows 7


Excellent question. Wish I had the answer. I have the same problem with the MFC-7440N. I hook up my old HL 1240 and it prints them fine, so I now use two printers - one for envelopes and one for normal printing. I contacted Brothers and was told that it was not the printer, but the Application. If so, then why does my old Brothers printer work? They do not have the answer.

Black ink does not print on brother 240c


If you haven't changed it recently, it may be out of black ink. The product code for Black is LC51BK.

Job Status Window Interface has stopped working.


The issue usually occurs if you are using windows xp drivers on a vista machine. It's strange that the error does not come up when printing from internet explorer 7.0.

There is a file on support.dell.com that you can run to remove any xp drivers and then run the vista installation file. that should take care of these error messages from the operating system.

you can copy and paste the following links to download and run the files :

My brother 240-c wants to send all of the documents to one-note, that is not what I want to do, I need to print them, My operating system is vista


One Note is a crappy little program that comes with Vista. Your problem is located in the printer setup. Click on control panel, go to printers. Your Brother 240-c should be shown there. Right click on the icon for the Brother and click the item called, set as default. Now when you look at the printer icon, it should have a check mark beside it. If it does, the Brother is now your default printer. Now print some stuff. I hope this fixes your problem. Thanks for using Fixya!

Did you do a firmware update? If not go to brother homepage , download the update tool and do the update if it is avaiable.

Do you print with generic ink? If yes this prob is because of different color depth. Try to print with the original innobella ones or do some resettings within the printers properties when you print a pic from pc.

You may test the print out by printing directly from a picture card without pc.
