Depends on op system. usally the router comes with a configuration utility in your all programs pull down.
run it and or go to install new hardware(control panel) and be sure to click on the install a NETWORK printer box. either way when the printer shows up it will set as default. the printers folder in the start menu also has add new =printer. again click network printer install

How do I Fix a Unable to Initialize error message 51 on a Brother MFC 820CW

Error 51 relates to print head parking position.

It is blocked and carriage cannot be seated correctly.

Try to get carriage away from parking position by pulling power lead when head has moved away from parking position then slide it out the way and use a flash light to look at parking position.

look for paper debris or similar which might block it or upset a sensor.

Brother MFC 820CW

These sort of parts are very hard to source as generally the repair cost is more than the cost of a new printer. I have had success doing these type of repairs by buying a length of ribbon cable from an electronic parts supplier and carefully soldering the wires onto the circuit boards. It is delicate work and you need to be careful, but it can be done if you take your time.

How do I remove and replace the ink absorber pad/tank on my Brother MFC - 820 CW

Have a look at which is specificlly for the MFC-210c - no sure how similar the 820CW is.

It's in German but google does a reasonable translation.
After receiving a "UNABLE TO CLEAN" message, I've just cleaned the pads on my MFC-425CN (washed in cold water) and re-set the purge counter - all working fine now.

How do I replace the ink cartridge? When I open the scanner, it's all encased?

Some of the newer models have a door on the front right, you just feel the notch on the right front corner and it either pulls open to the left or drops down to expose the inks.

Printer connected but not printing.

If you are not sure of the location of the router, it occurs to me that you could not be certain that the printer is configured therein.

If there is a person who normally manages the router which location you don't know, then they should also configure the printer to incorporate it and the two macs as part of your network, or your printer will never work.

Unable to clean message in brother dcp-115c aio

I saw on this site codes for another MFC to clear memory and reset the cleaning unit count code to zero. It worked on two of my brother mfc 820cw units. The third mfc 5840cn had unable to print error message 46- nothing at Brother. they want you to take everything to a repair shop.they don't help at all. Then the error went to 4F when I tried toclear the memory.As Iunderstand that message- it means I have to replace the printer head. Have no clue where or what it is. But I can read a manual as well as anyone and follow directions to fix it! Can't be worse than it is now! Good luck
