My machine is not printing,even though it said 100% normal


Hello:

Check to be sure the drivers you installed (I'm assuming you installed the drivers) are for the operating system you have on your computer. If it's Windows Vista or Windows 7 be sure you checked to see if your version of Windows is either 32 bit or 64 bit.

The best thing to do is uninstall the printer and reinstall it again this time making sure you have checked all the Windows info correctly. You can do this by clicking on the start button then find the "computer" or "my computer" then right click on it and select "properties" on the bottom of the list. All your computer info will be displayed for you to determine which Windows operating system you are running including if it's 32 bit or 64 bit.

After you've reinstalled the printer and the correct drivers and it's still not working you may have to have it checked out. The printer spooling service may not be running on the computer or your printer may be damaged.

How do I hook this up to my new Dell Windows 7 computer


Your solution is at this link.

http://www.brother-usa.com/lp/windows7compatibility.aspx#WinUpdate


During the initial installation of Windows 7, not all available printer drivers are listed. Clicking the Windows Update button will cause the operating system to query Microsoft's servers and download the remaining available drivers. See below to learn how to update the printer list using Windows Update.

Note: For USB and Parallel users, connect the interface cable to the Brother device while your PC is connected to the internet and the operating system will automatically download and install the drivers for your device.
  1. Open the Printers folder. Click START -> Devices and Printers
  2. Click ADD A PRINTER
  3. When the ADD PRINTER WIZARD appears, click on Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer
    winupdate1.jpg
  4. Select your Brother printer from the list and click NEXT
    winupdate2.jpg
  5. When the Install Printer Driver screen appears, click Windows Update. This will take a few minutes to contact the Microsoft server and download the additional drivers.
    winupdate3.jpg
  6. Once the drivers list has been updated, please select your Brother printer from the list and click NEXT.
    winupdate4.jpg
  7. Click NEXT to accept the default name of the printer.

  8. You will be asked if you want to print a test page and set the printer as the default printer. Select YES or NO. Click FINISH.

How to install LAN Brother MFC-5840CN on Windows 7 when original CD only has XP driver. Windows Update list specifies MFC-5840CN USB, but machine has option for LAN - is the driver the right one?


You cannot use the full driver and software package now. BUT:
Printing is possible, scanning and FAX is not possible at the moment. You download the Vista driver (x32 or x64) from the official Brother site and install it with the Printer Wizard in Windows 7.

No driver after reboot


Alas, driver to what. It always helps to state device, brand, model, operating system in a query.

Here is some information. No way for me to narrow it to the relevant device. Don't know what that is!

When Restart My PC My Video Drivers Disappear Graphics Cards

Some versions of Windows 7 have an XP Mode. The driver that ran perfectly under XP may do so there. That Windows 7 Home Premium is 64 bit may be a factor if the vanishing driver ran under a 32 bit XP system.

My brother 2070W acts like it receives the data, but it never prints


When reconnecting the USB cable to the computer or laptop the cable must
be reconnected to the same USB port it was previously connected to. Otherwise, Windows will install another copy of the printer
driver and the printer will no longer print. Most computers have two or
more USB ports. To prevent this problem from occurring we would
recommend labeling the end of the USB cable to indicate which USB port
the cable must be reconnected to.

To resume printing the printer driver should be removed then
reinstalled.

In Windows 2000 open Start, Settings and Printers. In Windows XP open
Printers and Faxes. Double click one of the Brother printer icons to
open the print queue. If print jobs are listed click Printer and Cancel
All Documents. Repeat this process for all copies of the Brother printer
driver.

Delete all copies of the Brother printer driver by selecting the printer
and clicking File then Delete.

Once all the copies of the Brother printer driver have been deleted
click File and Server Properties. Click the Drivers tab. Select the
Brother printer from the list and click the Remove button. Click Close.

The printer driver can be reinstalled using the Brother CD-ROM or
downloaded from the Brother Solutions web site. Check the CD-ROM to
verify it lists the operating system installed on your computer. If your
operatingsystem is listed insert the CD-ROM and install the printer driver.Before installing the printer driver disconnect the USB
cable from the back of the printer. Do not reconnect the USB cable to
the printer until the installation prompts you.

If the CD-ROM does not list the operating system installed on your
computer the CD-ROM should not be used to reinstall the printer driver.
The newest version of the printer driver is available for free download
from the web site below.
http://solutions.brother.com/model_list/mono_laser_us.html

How to install the downloaded driver:
1. Download and save the Windows 2000/XP driver to your desktop.

2. Once downloading is complete, Double-click the file to open the
WinZip Self-Extractor. In the Unzip To folder section, change the path
to c:ro, click Unzip and click OK. Click Close to close the WinZip
screen.

3. Open Printers or Printers and Faxes.

4. Click Add Printer or Add A Printer.

5. Click Next on the first screen. Select Local printer. Remove the
check from Automatically detect and install my Plug and Play printer and
click on Next.

6. Select a USB port and click on Next.

7. Click the Have Disk button and type the directory c:ro.

8. Click on OK.

9. Select the model and click on Next.

10. Select Yes to use the printer was the default printer then click
Next.

11. Select Do not share this printer or Share as and click on Next.

12. Click on Yes or No to print a test page.

13. Click on Finish to complete the installation.

Brother MCF-6490CW will not intall drivers with Windows 7 Ultimat


The drivers should come inboxed with windows 7 on the official final versions. Later on the drivers also will be released on brother's homepage(s), but they usually take some time before uploading drivers to the homepage when new OS' are released. Try using the Add Printer Wizard and see if you're able to find the MFC-6490CW in the list of printers available.
