In Windows XP Pro...

Go to printers and faxes window. File-Server Properties. From dialog go to drivers then select the problem driver and pick Replace button. Select Yes to replace driver.

This has worked to solve the problem on the printer server machine but not on the other machines using the printer as a shared printer.

My printer has somehow disconnected from my computer...how can I reinstall it?


Hello

Plug in your printer to your computer whether it uses parallel, serial or usb port

Find the driver from the provided cdrom supplied by your printer manufacturer, if it's not found, you can locate on from the manufacturer's website

Turn on your printer, and if you use windows xp, it will pop-up a new add hardware wizard

First, you can try to have windows configure your printer manually, if not found, locate the driver for your printer or wherever you save the driver on.

Our printer is printer in a different language


This means your printer is using generic driver, not the real driver, make sure you install the correct driver, you can download it free from the manufacture website.

Thanks for using Fixya

Brother HL-1440 Printing Preferences Language Problem


I had the same problem. I finally totally uninstalled the printer from my computer, downloaded the "new" software from the Brother site, and reinstalled it. This is what finally worked for me (WinXPProf.).

Need English version on 5250DN


You need to remove the printer and reinstall it. You need the English version from the Brother website, or an all language version. Make sure to select English during install.

Windows will see that it already has drivers and ask to keep them; say no and let Windows overwright the old drivers.

That should do it.

The printer is now in Swedish writing


small test... Hit the Go button 3 times, fairly fast like tick-tick-tick, normally by doing this the printer will print it's internal configuration pages. Are these in Swedish as well?

If I'm correct you selected the wrong supported language when installing the printer.

Go to your controll panel, remove the printer driver in "printers and faxes" as well as any brother software in "add/remove programs".
Then disconnect and reconnect the printer, install the driver and try to select the proper language while doing this.
