The unit's USB port is about two inches to the left of the chambers for the yellow and black cartridges.

If you have a Windows PC, see step 9 on page 15 of the Quick Setup Guide. If you have a Mac, see step 7 on page 20 instead.

To view the Quick Setup Guide at the aforementioned link, you will need a PDF viewer such as Adobe Reader or Foxit Reader.

I have a brother MFC-3240C 5 in 1 Multi Function and cannot find where I plug the printer in to the computer. Can someone please tell me where the printer port is on this machine. Thank you

On the back of the printer there should be a place to plug in at USB B cable. This is a square whole (check an image search for what USB B looks like). That cable then converts to a standard USB to plug into your computer.
Thumbs Up!

I have a Brother 5 in 1 Multifunction MFC-3240C and wondering where you plug the printer cable in to the machine? Could you please tell me where the printer port on the printer is located. Thank you very...

This printer connects via USB cable and not thru a parallel printer cable. The USB connector is actually inside the machine. Here is a small image of where the connector is and a link to the quick start guide.

Wasted 4 hours trying to install Brother 3240c and failed!

That is because the telephone line connection you are trying to use is for faxing, not to connect it to the PC.

You need to use the USB connection / wire.
