Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer


The printer/cpu now defaults to Fax printing with every print command, AOL etc. I can select to print normally through menus after giving the print command but this was unnecessary before. I reinstalled the Brother CD but this didn't correct the problem. What am I missing?

Do you have it set to print in black and white as the default? Go into the print driver, under Color Management, and select Color.

I'm running Mac OS 10.6 on my portable and the MFC-7840W won't priint. I've update all the drivers but when I try to print, the bluetooth window always says, can't find printer. HELP.


The MFC-7840W does not support bluetooth connection.
It can connect wireless if you have a wireless network or connect wireless directly to your airport on the mac.

Since it is not printing, please follow these steps.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Reboot the computer.
6. Go back to Print and Fax (step 1 & 2)
7. Click on the + icon to add a printer
8. Click on the "default" tab and add the printer.

If you do not see the printer in this list, then printer is not connected.

If you do see the printer in the list but you still can not print, you will need to remove the drivers completely and reinstall.

1. Go to the apple icon in the top left of the screen
2. Select System preferences \ Print and fax
3. Right click or control click on the list of printers.
4. Select "reset printing system"
5. Go to Mac HD \ Library \ Printers
6. move the brother folder to the trash bin
7. Empty the trash bin.
NOTE: You may need to reboot the computer before you can empty the trash.
8. Once the trash is empty, reboot the computer.

Now you need to install the following drivers.

Apple drivers

Brother CUPS drivers

TWAIN drivers (optionnal for scanning)

It is installed on one pc (prints from there) and is shared with the other pcs in the office. I haven't tried printing from other pcs yet, when I try to do a test print from my pc it wants me to set up my...

Sounds like you have checked the PC-Fax as the default printer instead of the actual printer. Check by going into Start -> Control Panel -> Printer & Faxes. If the MFC-printer isn't set as default printer, right click it and choose "set as default". You could also try printing a test page by right clicking, choose Properties and then you'll have the test print option on a button in the bottom left part of the properties screen.
