Question about Brother MFC-665CW All-In-One InkJet Printer

Brother MFC 665CW - Not connecting with XP

I have the printer set up on a wireless network. It connects to two laptops and a desktop with Vista but I can't get it to link up to the laptop with XP.

I've tried installing as instructed but it can't find it and when I try to go through the "Add Printer" printer -> Add Network Printer and it can't find it on the network...

Any help would be great. Thanks.

    I started to print labels in Word and nothing. I can almost reinstall from the disc..but it stops near the end and will not complete the installation.

    The printer will copy and scan but will have nothing to do with the computer. Everything is connected properly as far as I can tell.

    I am at a loss to fix the problem..I usually can remedy problems by reading...the manual does not help.. Tony.

I've tried everything including several driver utilities on Brother's own website. I even tried copying all the driver files identified in the device manager on an xp computer that will print to it. My last resort is to download the entire 80mb full software & drivers from Brother. I assume that's how I got it running on the other laptop years ago (but from the original disk that I can't find now). If you don't know where this is, google "mfc-665cw xp drivers" & you'll see a couple links to the Brother website. Click any of them, select "downloads" at the top, then at the left, under "notes," find "click here to see all downloads for this model. Scroll down through OS's until you get to XP & you'll see what I'm talking about. Good luck.

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?


Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

An online manual here: http://my.okidata.com/PP-ML320.nsf?opendatabase There is probably a top of form setting which needs to be checked & corrected. I assume you've checked tab/margin settings in your software & printer setup?
