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

1 Answer

Installing problems I bought the MFC-240c printer and now trying to install it. But it doesn't completely install. It stops from where it asks to plug back all the connections(USB and the main power). It wont load after that. I've tried everything else. Immediate help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Check your pc for compatability to the unit and its software. Check you have no other old printer settings left on pc (causing conflict) check your pc memory is not causing issues, or your operating system is compatable. Sometimes software and pc's can just be pigheaded and stubborn (i realise they are not human but it sure feels like it sometimes)You need to completely uninstall all traces of the printer drivers before reinstalling. Go to computer, local disk, programs, and see if there is an icon or folder for your program. If so, delete it. Do a search too and type in your printer (make sure disc is not in drive) and delete any settings it finds. Now try reinstalling it again.

I need control center for my brother mfc-240c

You can download that from Look near the top-right corner for the blue box labeled Service & Support, and click "Downloads." You'll have to select your machine's family (Multi-Function) and model, then your computer's Operating System. For most machines, Brother offers a choice of barebones drivers or the complete package; you'll want the full package to get the Control Center.
Brother requires that you install the driver package before you plug the machine into your computer. If you have already plugged it in and let Windows try to install a generic driver or something, you may need to download and run a utility for uninstalling the machine completely before installing the package properly. That utility program is probably at the bottom of the page of drivers on the Brother site.

what is the problem you are having? be more precise please

For starters most of these things don't like being plugged in before the software is installed so unplug it then go through the software install and plug it in only when it tells you to.

first you will have to install the cd that came with the printer. i will assume that you bought the printer new, some where while you are installing the cd it will ask you to plug the usb cable in to the printer. one end into the printer marked usb and the other end into a usb port on the back of your computer. if everything installed correctly, you will be ready to print to the printer. good luck brother tech
