Control center I have to constantly reinstall the control center on my MFC420CN. It doesn't make any difference whether I do a clean install (after removing all Brother files) or a repair installation, I have to repeat it in a couple of days. Please advise. Thanks

    Yes, it is a software problem, if reinstall from Brother did not fix it, then the problem is with windows, in this last case you will need to reinstall windows.

Cursor freezing


For a standard trackball mouse, unplug the mouse, turn it over and then twist the retaining ring counter-clockwise to remove it.

Remove the trackball inside the mouse.


Clean the trackball with warm water and dry carefully. Clean the rollers inside the mouse with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. Replace the trackball, then secure it with the retaining ring.


Clean the outside of the mouse with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball.


For an optical or wireless mouse, clean the bottom of the mouse and the surface it sits on with a damp cloth.

Solve Hardware Problems


Make sure the mouse is connected properly.

The connector will either be USB or PS/2. A PS/2 connector is color-coded green and can only be inserted in one direction.


Check for any bent or broken pins or damage, then carefully plug it in, making sure the connection is secure. Reboot the computer.


Connect the mouse to another computer, then reboot the PC.

If the mouse works after testing it on another computer, the problem is most likely with your PC or operating system.


Also, try a different mouse on your computer.

If there is no PC freeze, your mouse is probably malfunctioning.


Switch to a different USB port. Sometimes mouse freeze will occur if the mouse is connected to a USB hub.


Connect the mouse directly to one of the USB ports on your PC.

Try different ports until you find one that works.


Replace the batteries.

If you have a wireless mouse, replace the batteries with fresh ones.


Also, try using a different kind of mouse pad.

Sometimes surface imperfections can interfere with the operation of a wireless or optical mouse.


Install more RAM or memory.

If your PC doesn't have enough memory, PC mouse freeze may occur when you are running resource intensive programs.


Installing more RAM will help your PC run more efficiently.

Solve Software Problems


Check for device conflicts. When you install another device on your computer, it can sometimes conflict with a PC mouse.

Remove any new hardware and drivers you may have installed, then reboot the computer.


Reinstall PC mouse drivers. In Windows, open "Control Panel" then "System."


Select the "Device Manager" tab, then scroll to and select your mouse.

Uninstall any drivers that are listed.


Unplug the mouse and reboot the PC.

Plug the mouse back in, reboot the system, then allow Windows to reinstall the drivers if prompted.


Remove viruses.


PC mouse freeze and other serious problems can be caused by viruses lurking on your system.Set the program to run a complete scan every 24 hours.

Also make sure the virus definitions are updated regularly.


Turn off video acceleration. Sometimes video acceleration can cause PC mouse freeze.

Go to "Control Panel," then click "Display," and then "Change Display Settings."


Click the "Advanced Settings" button, then the "performance" tab. Set the acceleration slider to "None," then reboot.


Repeat the process moving the slider up one notch until you have the maximum amount of acceleration with no mouse freeze


hope this helps

Power off printer, remove power plug from printer, remove usb cable from printer, pull out paper and check for jams, check toner cartridge, clean area underneath the toner cartridge head, uninstall printer from windows control panel, reboot computer, plug-in printer with a different working usb cable, plug in power to printer, power on printer, reinstall printer driver. All in those steps exactly. If that doesn't work I would say you have a bad printer on your hands.

Cant get sound


Hello,

This can often be as simple as the speakers being unplugged, plugged into the wrong jacks, or powered off, so don't overlook the obvious and check to be sure. Also check the volume controls in Windows or your application to see that they are turned up and not muted. When you are sure the volume is turned up, the speakers have power and are plugged in, and the speaker configuration is correctly identified in Windows (some audio hardware uses a proprietary mixer control for this job), you need to verify whether the problem is with the speakers or the sound card. Connect different known-good speakers and see whether they work. If they don't, the issue is in the sound card-possibly the configuration of the card is incorrect or the card itself is defective. The first thing to try is clearing the ESCD in the BIOS Setup. This essentially forces the plug-and-play routines to reconfigure the system, which can resolve any conflicts. If this doesn't help, try removing and reinstalling the sound card drivers. Finally, if that doesn't help, physically remove and replace the card from the system. You might try replacing it first in the same slot and then in a different slot because timing issues can sometimes exist from one slot to the next. If that doesn't work, you must try replacing the card. If the sound "card" really isn't a card but is integrated into the motherboard, first try the ESCD reset and driver re installation. Then, if that doesn't work, you have to try disabling the integrated sound and perhaps installing a replacement card.

I hope one of these solutions help.
