Printer Connct'n. Prblm. Brother MFC 420 CN Fax/Copier/Scanner w/ eMachines

Printer nor Scanner work, jobs just back up into queque. Now I do have the original instaltn. CD, but it won't install. It seems in the Device Mgr. (3) necessary components are missing under the UnivSer'l.Bus Controllers: #1] USB Printing Support, #2] USB Mass Storage Device, #3] USB Comp. Device; and I was told that without them even the orig. CD could not be reinstalled. MEANWHILE I've already downloaded, (and I believe installed), Chipset Description Motherboard Drive Package; which I was told would solve the USB Driver problem, (so orig. CD could be reinstalled), but apparently it hasn't. Can you help??

Fax to location does not pickup and goes into

Adjust you transmission speed to the lowest setting then try.
Keep boosting speed up until you can no longer connect then back down one speed.
This brand is known for communication problems with other brand of fax machines.This is the only workaround that has supplied results for me.

Sublect:Problems With My MFC 420 CN / All In One Machine

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Problem with my fax Machine MFC 420CN

You can cancel a fax job that is stored and waiting in the memory.
1 For MFC-210C,
press Menu/Set, 2, 5.
For MFC-420CN,
press Menu/Set, 2, 6.
Any jobs that are waiting will appear on the LCD.
2 If you have more than one job waiting, press ▲ or ▼ to select the
job you want to cancel.
Press Menu/Set.
If you only have one job waiting, go to Step 3.
3 Press 1 to cancel.
To cancel another job go to Step 2.
Press 2 to exit without canceling.
4 Press Stop/Exit.

That should do it for clearing faxes you dont need you can also print off all the faxes in the memory and I believe that clears it.
