Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Hi...i have a Brother MFC290-c all in one setup. My printer was working fine and then one day it stopped. I have tried to reinstall but says Printer spooler failure whatever that means. I went to look at printer settings through control panel and when I went to "installed printers" it wasn't there.

Hi. Printer spooler is not running on your computer or there's a need to erstart the printer spooler services. Please refer to steps below.

1. Press Window key + R to open the Run dialog Start and type services.msc and click OK.

2. Double-click the Printer Spooler service, and then change the startup type to Automatic. This sets the Spooler service to start automatically when you restart the computer. Click OK.

3. Restart the computer and try to install the printer again.

If that doesn’t work, the problem could be related to corrupted printer drivers that are installed on the computer. Try uninstalling all printer software from the computer and start from scratch. This may include PDF writer or faxing software as well. Anything listed in the Control Panel under Printers & Faxes I would do away with. If there is any software installed for other printers in Add/Remove Programs I would uninstall it all. Clean out everything possible that might be hanging the Printer Spooler service. Obtain updated software from your printer manufacturers and reinstall only the items you need.

Have a good one!

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.

You will need to reinstall the software driver disk that it came with. If you dont have the disk you can go to the Brother Printers website. Try www.brother.com and/or www.ibm.com

Paper starts to feed then stops after feeding about 2 inches


Drum is on an internal counter in the printer, so it will work fine on another printer. If the print quality is fine, then you can fool the machine into 'thinking' you replaced it. The instructions are here:

Brother 7820 Network setup problem


Spoke to soon. the supplied disc failed working the next day.

I think your problem is your firewall!.
Disable the firewall and see if you can print / start it scanning from the brother control center.
If so you know its a firwall prob.

I gave up on trying to configure Norton to recognise it.

I uninstalled Norton Internet Security and then reinstalled it after making sure the printer was printing and the scanning etc could be started. Working fine so far ( a few hours). I am reasonably confident that this will be ok. If the machine has already communicated with the printer then Norton recognises this and allows it. If however the first time you try is after installing Norton it will block it!
