It is located under the scanner cover, under the glass, if you look at the right side of the machine there is a groove to place your figer to completely open the cover, the USB cable would be located on the right side.

I have a bother printer model mfc-240c and a dell dimension 2350 computor. i need instruction on how to and where to connect the printer to the computor


The USB port on the printer is somewhat hidden on this model,

Lift both lids so you can see the inside of the printer(where you installed the ink) to the right of it there is an indented area in the grey plastic. Both the USB port and the telephone/fax port are located on a vertical section of the indented area. Once you plug the cables in there is a track to run the cables in that will drop them out the back of the printer.

Of Note: this model usually doesn't come with the USB cable included, if there isn't one in the box you may have to go back to the store and buy one for $10-$20 dollars.

Once you have the cables installed on the printer, run the disk that came with the printer, DO NOT plug the USB cable into the computer until the program on that disk tells you to.

Once you get through the foray of nexts and ok buttons it will eventually ask you to plug the printer into the computer and turn it on. Windows and the installer program will then complete the installation and you're on your way.

Hope This helps FixYa

first you will have to install the cd that came with the printer. i will assume that you bought the printer new, some where while you are installing the cd it will ask you to plug the usb cable in to the printer. one end into the printer marked usb and the other end into a usb port on the back of your computer. if everything installed correctly, you will be ready to print to the printer. good luck brother tech
