    Completed all steps successfully thru

    "setting up machine'. After inserting USB port and plugging into AC outlet, the set up stalls at the 'Connect the machine' screen.

Solution for #2: Problem was due to use of wireless router. Setup instructions were for non router setup which you need to follow first, however with USB connected to PC.
Then need to remove USB from PC, hookup to router and then setup TCIP address. After that unit printed fine.

I apologize for not giving you the instructions for retrieving the file.

In Step 1 double click Drivers.
In Step 2 double click the operating system that you have installed.
In Step 3 double click the language that you need.
Click Search.
On the next page choose the package you want. I would suggest choosing the file in the Full Driver & Software Package.

To do this, find the section that you want to downland and click the More Information at the right of that row. On the next page you will need to click the Download link. You can also find installation instructions at the bottom of this page. On the next page you will need to click the Accept link. Once you click the Accept link you will be prompted to open or save the file. Click Save. Click the Save in: feild at the top and choose Desktop. Then choose Save at the bottom. Make note of the filename. After its finished downloading you will have an icon on your desktop that matches the filename you noted earlier. Once you find the file, just double click it to start the installation.

    What error does it give when you start the install?


  • S C Jul 28, 2008

    I tried the English version and the files decompressed fine. Just let me know the error that you receive and I will assist you with it.


  • S C Jul 28, 2008


    I would delete the file that you downloaded and then redownload the file again. It may have just been a corrupt file.

    If that doesn't correct it, let me know which operating system and language that you are using and I will attempt the same download.


  • S C Jul 28, 2008

    Yes, you can vist the same think that I mentioned earlier.


  • S C Aug 09, 2008

    Hello cocc,

    Did you connect both ends of the usb cable and verify that the printer is plugged into a wall outlet when prompted to do so? If so, what happened after that?

I have mfc240c it has been on computer and still shows to be on computer in control pannel .it will pull document through feeder but it will not show up on computer


It is possible that the printer is not selected as your default printer: double click the printer in the control panel and see if there's a v-mark for selection for this printer.

When having the MFC240c as default printer and the device still isn't working: The driver installed on the computer, for communication with the printer, could be not working correctly.
For a new installation for drivers on the computer you must be logged in as a user having administrator rights.
When not having the CD for reinstallation, go to the support site for a download of the drivers and software:

0. Get a download from the support link above.
1. Before reinstallation disconnect the printer; disconnect the USB cable.
2. Remove the printer icon from the control panel: delete the printer before reinstalling drivers and software.
3. Install the drivers and software.

When needing more help, just add a comment in this thread.

It is extremely important if you are loading drivers to not connect the machine to your computer until the driver tells you to.
if you are on a network it is different. look in the faq's or respond to this for more info.
