    Bought new Dell with Vista 64 bit. Connected Brother MFC 420CN using USB. Driver automatically downloaded. But when I send doc to printer, it never gets there. The queue just says "Error-Printing". Have tried other USB and Ethernet cables. No errors on printer screen. Downloaded driver from Brother web site. Now in the Printers window it shows two Brother printers, one on LPT1 and on on Virtual printer port for USB. When I plug in or unplug I don't get the audio sounds you normally get when you plug something into the computer.

Every half inch the printer is printing black lines???

If the printhead is printing but is not moving across the page then a single block of print will be produced across the whole page. When this happens the problems include the printhead positioning motor, the timing belt, the home position sensor, the control board or the power supply.
With the power off manually move the printhead to the center of the printer. Turn the printer on to see if the printhead seeks the home position at the far end of the printer. If the printhead moves to the end of the printer and doesn't shut off or doesnt return to the center of the printer then the home positioning is malfunctioning and should be replaced. If the printhead moves on startup but doesn't on printing then the control board should be replaced. If the printhead doesnt move any time check to see if the printer is in maintenance mode. In this mode the printer keeps the printhead assembly in the home position. I f no mode problems are present the positioning motor should be replaced.

Prints out of alignment on excel spreadsheets

go to print preview, then to the margins button at the top and click it, margins will appear on the page, adjust your margins to the edges of the page, if the spreadsheet is supposed to be on one page and doesnt fit, go to page setup and shrink the size of the document (will be percentage), either way--once you have moved your margins out to the edges, you can then move them back in a little at a time if you need to in order to center your document on the page. Hope this helped.
