Question about Brother MFC-5890cn Color Flatbed All-In-one Printer

1 Answer

My Brother MFC-5890cn Color Flatbed All-In-one Printer is not printing multiple copies from MS Word. I am running Windows Vista. I tried changing properties to "directly to printer", but then my Word freezes up and I have to wait until the printing is done. Any suggestions?

Usually printer drivers are updated all the time, and when you buy a printer ( or other devices) one of the first things they do is seek the updates to the drivers.
Also, vista 32 bit or 64 bit is presenting more problems than the designers cold have anticipated.
So, the first thing I would suggest is to check for a proper driver for your OS.
I would also check to see if there are any firewall issues with protection suite software.
Sharing of resources is becoming common place, how many devices are on your USB.
Shooting from the hip here...
It appears that your system is hanging (freezing, not crashing) so I am trying to direct your attention to things that use system
resources heavily.
Good luck.

Unable to clean 5A MFC-5890CN


THANK YOU, CLIVE!!! It took me a while to understand that hitting the "start" button cycled through a bunch of things until it finally landed on the "purge" message. From there, it all worked like a charm. Thanks!

Im only getting balck and yellow i have a mfc 5890cn printer


Try to print a test page, if this comes out in black in yellow take out the cartridges and make sure the plastic is taken off the bottom and pop them back in. Do a test page again. Does it now print in colour and are there any errors on the machine or pc? i.e. out of ink?

I have a brother MFC 5890CN printer and the yellow and magenta only prints a couple of squares on test after several cleans


It may be worth changing them again, you can on the odd occasion get a couple of duffers.

i would start afresh & do a head clean then a print test with a brand new set in.

If you get a perfect set of squares as the screen shows then its done if not repeat the head cleaning process untill you do, once you got those squares right your done.
