First check all cable, and check that you are using the usb cable (if you want local printer connected to pc), and not the network cable to connect to the computer.

If it is not that, this probably happened because you connected the printer before installing software.

You need to remove the printer from 'installed printers' in control panel on xp or in printers on Vista. Then unplug the printer from computer.
Restart computer.
Install again printer disk.
Plug printer in usb only after installing software, or when required.
If asked restart PC.
In this way it should work.

Hi i have a brother called MFC 8660DN, he is not recieving or sending any fax since this morning and i can't find the problem.


Try these things below to narrow down the problem.
  1. Plug a standard phone into where the fax line is plugged into to check for dial tone. if you have dial tone try replacing the phone line between the wall and fax. If not you have a phone line issue.
  2. Make sure the printer is actually responding to print commands from a computer, this could indicate a hardware issue if it does not.
  3. Check the ink levels. If the printer thinks it is out of ink then it will not print faxes.
I hope this points you in the right direction Regards GM

I have a Brother MFC-8660DN. When I receive a fax


That type of problem comes from either the drum or the fuser, the best way to check is to unplug the machine while it's printing and see of the shadow is on the paper before the fuser, if it is then you need a new drum, if not the fuser is the culprit.

OCR problems for Brother MFC-8660DN with Vista 64bit


You are correct in that paperport 9 will not work on Vista and paperport 11 is the alternative. I called about a similar model and the guy at Brother told me that paperport 11 is included on an updated cd from brothermall.com for some models. It was only about $3 so you might want to check for your model. Hope this helps.
