SOURCE: Brother MFC-7840w wireless printer won't connect to network

For me, the quick solution was to use the 'Open System' instead of 'Shared Key', 'WPA/WPA2-PSK' or 'LEAP' authentication options on your printer.

However, after that, I decided to change the security settings on my router a bit. Log into your router, click the 'Home Network' icon at the top, and then check out 'Wireless Settings.'

The 'Wireless Security' section should tell you how your 2Wire is configured (which I eventually changed to WPA2-PSK.)

SOURCE: "brother mfc 7840w printer goes offline and i cannot print need turn printer on and off.

The solution, and it took me a long time to find the simple solution, is to right click on your printer, click properties, click the ports tab and click on your Brother printer and click on configure port (or you can delete the existing one and then add another one). What you want to do is update the IP Address. The problem is that the printer does not have a static IP address, it is dynamic. If you want to confirm that, go to your printer and press the reports button and print out the network configuration report. Your IP address will show on that. It's really the last digit in the IP address that changes. This will absolutely solve your problem. Good Luck!

Brother mfc-7840W not picking up wireless IP address


It is common, mainly because the MFC connection is lost to your PC. Are you able to print or scan from another wireless PC that you have? If yes, contact your network admin or router oem. If no, reset network card. Run the Setup Wireless Wizard. Make sure you have router info such as SSID, Network Security Key, Authentication Method (Open, Shared, WPA/WPA2-PSK), Encryption (None, WEP, AES, TKIP). Enter those info, it must be CASE SENSITIVE. Just in case you dont know your router info, contact your router oem.
For Advanced Users.1. Click your Wireless Icon at Task Tray2. Right-Click your Wireless Network Name3. Select Properties4. Go to Wireless Security Settings5. Take note of the settings that you have there and enter it again on your MFC
Goodluck! If you still need more assistance. Call us 1-877-Brother. :)

I'm finding that the scanning on the brother MFC-7840W creates a big file (a two page document is over 2MB). Is there a way to condense the pdf files?


Hi, you can reduce the file size by decreasing the DPI (dots per inch) or resolution of the scanned image. This can typically either be done from the scanner's control panel or from the software installed on your computer. The less DPI you set it for, the smaller your file will be.

Some scanners will also allow you to compress files. If the MFC-7840W will let you, the option would be in the software program, and it should say "enable file compression" or "enable image compression" or something similar.

Won't scan


Hello,

We need to first check the driver to make sure it is installed and working correctly. Please go to “start menuè control panelè scanners and cameras”.
(Note: For Vista users, you must select “classic view” in control panel to be able to see “scanners and cameras”)


You should now see all scanners currently installed.
If you do see your brother scanner, please right click the icon and select “properties”; here you can select “test scanner”.

If the test fails, select the “network settings” tab. Here you can have the driver set to locate the device by name or by IP address, please select IP address and make sure the IP address matches that of your brother machine.

To get the IP address on your brother, print out the network settings page; either with the “report” button on the printer or go “menuè print reports”

If the scanner does not appear in the list at all, you will need to reinstall the software. You can download the software using the below link.

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/Public/CountryTop.aspx?reg=us&c=ca&lang=en


If your scanner successfully completed the diagnostic test, we can move on to try using control center to scan.
To access Control Center, please go to “Start menuè All programsè brotherèControl Center”.

In Control center, please make sure the correct device is being selected in the ”model” drop down list.

Thanks,

Pat

Problem with our Brother mfc-7840w toner all over the page


since i finally figured this out I thought I would post this for anyone who has the
HL-4040 CN printer - or one similar
After seeing the hitting the buttons with the door open tricks for different models I tried anything that sounded like it had the same buttons my 4040 has... nothing on here worked so I just started hitting combinations of buttons with the door open - wow there are quite a few hidden menus there
For the toner life reset menu:
1 Open the front cover of the printer
2 press and hold the cancel button
3 press the reprint button while still holding cancel
- here is the reset menu - go to the appropriate cartridge on
- the menu and reset it and you're done!
FYI... Pressing the "Go" button and the up arrow gives you the parts life reset menu (drum, laser, fuser, etc.)
I also did the electric tape over the windows - which worked before the reset - but I thought this fact would be helpful too.
For anyone that is asking "what window?" I think it is the clear plastic opening on the sides of the cartridges where you can actually see the powder inside the cartridge - the color of the toner (magenta, yellow, or cyan). I didnt really know that for sure when I tried, but it made sense, and it worked. So I am fairly sure that is the "window" you should be trying to cover.

HOW DO I SCAN?


Hi, normally, if you have installed the complete driver set, the easiest way is to run a program with scanning capability i.e. photoshop, or word. the software normally given with a scanner is a 'twain' which becomes linked to the photoshop program. If you have MS word (I'll use this as an exAmple ), ensure the scanner software is installed, the brother switched on and connected to the computer correctly click Insert select picture then scanner - (or it may say twain). At this point the Brother mini program - the 'twain' should start and then follow the scanner instructions and a scan of whAtever you have selected should be inserted into the word document. Bit of trivia - TWAIN stands for Tool With An Interesting Name - yup it really is!.

Brother MFC-7840W Printerwill only give me Scan To FTP option now


i had the same issue - was previously able to scan to a number of different formats, then switched modems, providers and then only the scan to ftp option came up.
took me about an hour to figure out the solution, but now it works
for windows users: * go to your control panel * go to the scanners & cameras section * your printer/scanner should show up here * right click on it and select 'properties' * select the network settings tab and then -- enter in the correct ip address here OR -- specify your machine by name (enter in name here)
hope this helps!
