Load the brother drivers, not windows drivers.

Brother Office... | Answered 10 hours ago

Is this a network (cat 5 cable) printer or a USB printer? Continual unplugging of a USB printer can cause issues where it will not recognize that device in which case you need to uninstall the printer and plug in to have Windows reinstall. If it is a network printer then you can either Repair or check settings by clicking "start" and type "control panel" (open when the control panel APP shows. You can "repair" or "troubleshoot" by right clicking on printer in "view devices and printers" or check "port" and make sure it shows the IP address of your printer and not "WSD". "WSD" is a windows chosen driver and notoriously has intermittent connection problems causing VERY slow printing and "offline" messages.

To clear the message on my Intellifax (although this is Intellifax 775), I followed these steps:

1. Unplug the Brother machine from the power outlet for 10 seconds.

2. Press and hold the STOP key.

3. While holding the STOP key, plug the power cord back into the power outlet.

4. After you plug the machine back in, continue to hold the STOP key for 5 seconds. [Also try waiting until you hear a long beep then let the key up.]

- The display should return to the date and time.

- If the display does not return to date and time, repeat STEPS 1 through 4.

Hope this helps.

Try disabling the firewall, printing, re-enabling the firewall. My printer keeps working after re-enabling the firewall (at least for a while). Not ideal, but beats reinstalling the printer.
