Brother Mfc-425cn Printer Problem To Print On Network


I do have a brother mfc-425cn printer and i cannot get it to print as network printer (which was no problem with windows xp). When installing windows 7 drivers, it has been found correctly and without problems in the network. The whole installation process worked fine. However the printer does not react, when i want to print s. Th. So i did the windows 7 troubleshoot. The following 2 problems are found but cannot be fixed automatically:

1)"printer brother mfc-425 usb printer cannot be contacted over the network" - "not fixed".

2) "problem with wireless adapter or access point" - "detected"

As i said the printer was found in the network without any problems during installation. I also have no problems to access other computers or the router in the network. Internet access is fine. So the whole network seems to work just fine, just the printer does not respond.

Brother Mfc-8840d Printer Not Compatible

I have just installed windows 7 (32-bit) on my father's laptop computer. When i installed the software for his brother mfc-8840d printer, windows told me the software was not compatible. Checked brother's website and indeed, the brother mfc pro suite software is not compatible with windows 7. No problem, windows still installed the scanner driver and i can scan with the unit. However, the files created are in tif format. Windows only allows for saving in a few formats, including tif. Is there a way to configure the scanning feature in windows to save as a pdf file?

Printer Driver For 64-bit Brother Mfc 9800 Printer

I can't get my brother mfc 9800 printer to work properly with windows 7 64 bit. It seems to work with my other vista machine but i can't find the ms updated printer driver that is theoretically installed in this hp touchsmart computer. I've tried all the worthless troubleshooting wizards and have come up with nothing.

Brother Mfc 255cw Color Printer Problem

We've just purchased a new computer running windows 7. We attached our printer, it was detected and immediately configured. (It's a brother mfc -255cw color printer). We've used it for several weeks with no problems. Now, suddenly, it won't print and says it's because of a problem with the current printer setup (although as far as i can tell it hasn't changed at all).

I went to check the properties and got an error message and i tried to "find" the printer but got the error message: the active directory domain service was unavailable. (Although according to the computer control panel it is the currently installed, default printer). What's going on?

Brother Printer Mfc 420cn Pro Suite Will Not Work

Brother multi-function printer mfc-420cn pro suite will not work with windows 7 and brother says they have no fix! I can print only and but no longer scan my documents to pdf and brother customer service support says they do not have windows 7 drivers for this software so just have to wait and see or buy a new printer. Mine is only 2 years old so hoping someone out there has an idea or if having same problem, maybe if enough people complain, they will come up with the fix.

Brother Mfc-8440 Scanner Driver Win 7 X64

I installed a new pc with windows 7. My printer is a brother mfc-8440 connected via usb. Brother does not have windows 7 drivers for this mfc, but the built-in windows 7 printer driver works ok. Printing works just fine. My problrem has to do with scanning. Windows 7 also has a built-in scanner (imaging) driver. However, i have 2 problems with it:a) it won't scan to pdf. I can overcome this with a 3rd party scanner utility (pdf converter, paperport, etc). This one i'm ok with since 3rd party software works. B) it seems the driver does not include legal size paper (8. 5 x 14) in the list of supported paper sizes. I'm unable to scan a legal size document using the windows 7 utility (or 3rd party software). Since the problem is present in both programs, i'm guessing it has to do with the windows 7 driver.

I found a suggestion to use the xp x64 driver from brother and install it under compatibility mode. I attempted this, but get an error message from brother that says "this driver is meant for a different os version. "Please help while this is the only problem i'm having with the move from an old xp machine to windows 7, it's a major hassle because i frequently need to scan legal size docs and send them in pdf format (as you can guess, i work in a legal office).

Brother Print Driver Problem

Am trying to install the control center for a brother mfc-9440cn, but keeps giving error message - says need to install windows (r) service pack. Have searched microsoft for such a thing and appears not to exist. Have tried the other recommendation here: all programs. Windows updates - updated other things but does not address this issue. Does (r) service pack exist? Does someone have a link where this exact service pack can be downloaded? It is ridiculous how much time gets wasted trying to fix new software so i can actually do my work.microsoft - 1) provide a quality product 2) provide some accessible customer support.

Can't Print To Network Printer

I just upgraded my desktop and laptop to windows 7 a week ago. When using vista i was able to print over the network to my hp photosmart c5280 printer. Now, when i attempt to print from my wirelessly connected laptop it appears that it was sent to the printer fine, but nothing ever prints. My desktop is hardwired(usb) to the printer and i can print fine from it. My desktop is ethernet connected to my router and my laptop is wirelessly connected to the network through the router as well. I tried multiple times to connect both systems to a home group and everything appeared fine.

At times however i could only see one system or the other though both were still connected to the home group. I have already installed the windows 7 drivers and software from hp on the desktop and the drivers on the laptop. I can see the printer from my laptop as being shared, however when i print nothing ever actually prints on the printer. I removed both computers from home group and just set up the folders and printer to be shared like in vista however i am still getting the same problem. I ran the troubleshooters on both systems for the printer and network and homegroup and found no problems.

Unable To Connect To Print From Network Printer

After upgrading to windows 7, unable to connect to homegroup & not able to print from network printer. Windows 7 upgrade from vista loses network connectivity to windows xp, and mac osx computers and can't connect wireless network printer. Hi, i have recently upgraded my laptop from windows vista to windows 7. While working in vista i had access via a network named mshome to our other windows xp laptops and 2 macs running osx as well as our network laser printer (lexmark c530dn).

Now my laptop can't see the other laptops or macs but can still print to our network printer, and obviously access the internet. I'm guessing that i'm going to have to setup a new network in order to see our other machines. In addition, i have recently purchased a wireless multifunction inkjet printer (lexmark s400 series). The xp laptops and osx machines can print etc. While my windows 7 laptop won't.

The software is installed, latest drivers downloaded, and the printer status is ready but it won't even print a test page. If anyone could give me some advice about the best way to set up a new workgroup (or reconnect to our old one) and get my new printer working i would be really grateful. As you can imagine, i'm now more than a little frustrated with it.

Word Or Excel (2007) Can't Print To Network Printer

I installed a new pc running windows 7 on an existing network with a shared pinter on one of the xp computers on the network. I'm able to add the network printer and print the test page and can also print from notepad. However attempts to print from word or excel (2007) or a page on the internet all cause the program to "not responding". The print windows comes up with the printer selected as the default printer but hangs when i select print.

I connected another windows 7 pc and got the same results - test page and notepad print ok but not word or excel. Note, i installed the new dell print driver for w7 and also tried the old xp driver - same results. Printer is a dell mfp-3115cn. Any ideas?

Printer Problem - Print Job In Print Queue Is Preventing Other Print Jobs

Cannot print from new laptop to shared printer - "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing". I recently bought a new laptop and want to print to a printer (hp color laserjet 1600) i have shared over the network from a windows 7 (x64) machine. When i try to print from my laptop it stays in the print queue and i have to run the troubleshooter on the host computer to resolve the issue and allow it to print.

If i run the troubleshooter on the laptop it tells me it could not identify the problem while on the host it tells me "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing" and it says it fixed the problem and prints the document but i have to do this every time. I also have this printer added to a laptop and a netbook and they both print the document just fine and have no issues. The laptop i am having the problems is running windows 7 (x64).

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.

Setup Wireless Print Server Network With Linksys

How to set up a wireless print server network with linksys print server, to serve 64 bit win7 computer to print to 2 xp machines and the 64 bit win 7 machine. (There are no 64 bit drivers for the server). I have a win xp pro desktop & an eeepc netbook, both printing to a linksys wireless print server on to a canon i560 printer. Both xp machines are 32 bit & print directly to the wireless server. It is not yet a network printer.

I now  have a 64 bit win7 notebook. There are no 64 bit drivers for the linksys print server. It appears that linksys does not intend to ever provide 64 bit drivers for this. Can someone please tell me if it is possible to get the 64 bit notebook to print to the print server through the xp (host) desktop and how to do that? Or should i just discard the linksys print server and buy a more suitable product?

Print Server Issues - Randomly Dropping Network Connection

Win 7 pro machines seems to be randomly dropping the connected network printers. Everything looks fine at first when you go into the printer devices. Built in trouble shooter doesn't find anything and eventually i got it to say it felt the print spooler on the server was down. I checked and it was up, restarted the spooler on one server, even rebooted another, no change. This is pretty random and after numerous reboots of win 7 pro will reconnect to the file/print server properly. The printers always show mapped on the client machine, restarting local print spooler doesn't help. This is for all 3 network printer servers, i have printers from all 3 mapped and get same issue on all printers, not just one specific printer or server.

Network print servers: win server 2003 sp2
Printers: hp 4240, hp 4250, hp4300, hp4005, hp2320

This is happening to all printers across 3 print servers. Again everything looks fine but when you look at the individual properties it shows unavailable for things like manufacturer, model number, description. Xp & citrix (win 2003) users have no problems. Maybe it is having issues pulling it from ad? Anyone have any ideas?

Cannot Print To Hp 6500n Printer

I just installed windows 7 upgrade over vista, and cannot print to my hp 6500n printer. Any clues? I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall drivers, but it still doesn't work, though it appears as one of my devices. I am having problems printing in all programs. I had already attempted to use: go to hp printer support and download this driver for window 7 32 bit.

File name:userhpndu-2017.exe, (1/1, 1. 2m)
Version 2. 0. 0. 17
Date 2009-10-20

When i do that, i get "this system does not meet one or more of the minimum requirements needed to install this product. The installation can't continue". So, nothing happens. Interestingly, the printer is in control panel, even though i have uninstalled and rebooted. During the last attempt, i connected the printer using the usb and windows appeared to attempt to grab a driver, but again, it does not work now wirelessly, and it did using vista.

Cannot Print To Remote Printer

I had vista home premium on my laptop from which i could print on an old lexmark z11 attached to another laptop running xp. Recently i upgraded to windows 7 and now i cannot print this way. Although the 7 machine can see the printer, it says it is 'ready' and i see stuff in its print queue on my machine, after a while these items disappear without appearing on the xp machine's queue. The printer shows no activity whatsoever. I have removed the printer from my machine and reinstalled it. Still no joy. The xp machine has extra drivers loaded for "2000 and xp".

After Reboot Printer Will Not Print

I am with the guy about the troubleshooter not working half the time. I have a lexmark z715 printer. Installed windows 7 on a new partition on a new hard-drive fresh and it detected the printer and downloaded a driver that worked and all was fine. 2 days later i shut down the computer and didn't use it for a day.

Come back online and print spooler quit working. Ok looked in diagnostics and it says is running and on automatic. Did a complete unistall of the lexmark software and that hung for 4 hours till i shut it down. So manually i went in and deleted anything associated with lexmark registry included.

Next day i thought i would give it another try so i restart computer and do a search and it finds the printer and installs a lexmark z700-900 p700-900 driver and software from the windows update sight. Printer shows up and test page prints just like it should. I do a test and print off a microsoft word file and all is good. Reboot. Now i can see the printer. Can adjust the printer properties. Yet everything i send to the printer flashes in the print queqe for a sec and deletes saying it was printed. The size of these files are 8 bytes.

I am on a dual boot system
I have windows xp installed on a c drive.
I have a backupdrive d.
I have a backup partition on c called h.
I have a tetrabyte hard drive called g where windows 7 is installed.
I have a q9650 processor with 4 gig s of ram
I have a 9800gtx+ 1 gig video card.

I can print in xp fine the printer is hooked to the usb and it turns on and prints well.
In windows 7 and in windows xp when i shut the computer down the printer shuts off also.

I have installed the windows xp driver which actually worked also till reboot. I have installed the windows vista driver that is recommended from the updater and it would not even see the printer. I after cleaning out the registry again get windows update to find that driver and it worked until reboot and at least i can still communicate with the printer.

But still cannot print. Also want to add that ive spent a good 8 hours on this researching and this seems to be an issue with alot of people. Especially with windows 7 recognizing supposedly compatible devices. Seems someone was over optimistic or manufacturers deceived in placing their equipment on the list.

Oh also i have microsoft office installed and microsoft outlook which printed fine also before reboot. I am currently looking through the forums for any other things to do. I am figuring that probably going to have to upgrade my printer due to fact that it would only cost me 50 bucks more than ink for this one. But i should not have to if its on compatible list.
