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.

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 Hl 820 Driver Issue

I have a brother hl-820 printer and have recently upgraded to windows 7. With windows vista, i was able to select and use the brother hl-720 driver which comes preloaded in the windows 'install a printer' driver list in the printer installation wizard. I am given to believe this is a result of brother's work with microsoft to ensure ongoing compatibility.

Unfortunately, the same trick does not seem to work with windows 7, which states that it is unable to install the 'kernal printer driver' and that i should contact the manufacture, brother, who of course do not support the hl-820s anymore.

Does anyone know if there is anyway to get this printer working again?

Brother Hl-2140 - Windows Can't Find A Suitable Driver

I have a brother hl-2140 connected to my windows vista-32 business pc via usb. Prints great. It is shared. I have a second windows vista-32 business pc and installed the shared printer and it prints fine. I have a laptop with windows 7-64 home premium and i'm trying to install the shared printer. I have downloaded all current drivers via brother's website and used both disks that came with the printer (all os's on one disk and windows 7 as a separate disk). I've tried installing all versions of drivers to be sure. I've plugged the printer directly into the laptop and the printer prints fine.

When trying to install the shared printer, i physically point the laptop to the correct *. Inf file, but it always says that "windows could not find a suitable driver. " Just as a side note, brother states on their site that the hl-2140 is windows 7 compatible. I have seen many posts that contains 7 and xp issues. But i have not found any post for 7-64 to vista-32 sharing.

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).

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).

Print Driver Is Not Installed

Driver doesn't work with my laserjet 2100. During the driver install, i used "windows update", it then locates the driver, and seemingly installs. Afterwards, when the printer is accessed, it errors. When i go into the printer console, it tells me ". Print driver is not installed. " I go back to device manager, and the driver is named, and seems that it is installed. Very frustrating. (I'm connecting to a printserver via wireless across to my local network to a print server). I have several other pc's running 2000, xp, and vista with no problems.

So in summary, after the driver is "installed", i get an error accessing the printer, and subsequently get an ". Driver not installed. " Error message during the troubleshooting period. Windows "troubleshooter" did not find any issues. Also, the printserver has a static ip address and i used that address in setting up the printer port. Now what?

Minolta 1250w Printer Print Driver

I have a minolta 1250w printer and it no longer works with my wife's new windows 7 64bit machine. Minolta says on their site they will not support 64 bit windows for this machine. I have two possible workarounds in mind but don't know if either will work.

The better workaround is to use the driver on the print server. The printer is shared and is connected by usb to a windows xp machine. Is there any way to print from her machine and use the print driver on the server?

The less optimal workaround is to find and application that will sweep a folder on the server and print a file. My wife could then print-to-file on the print server and the document would then print after a short delay.

My third idea for a workaround using the xp virtual machine in windows 7 won't work because her version doesn't have it. It would also require that she print from apps installed in the xp environment (not good).

Cannot Update Usb Print Driver Without Error

I am trying to get an hp 4100 laserjet printer to work on my new windows 7 ultimate 64 bit laptop. When i plug in the printer through a usb adapter cable, windows 7 finds and loads a compatible driver hp4100 pcl6. The printer works most of the time, but i get errors when i try to print many images. According to the hp forums, the pcl6 driver has issues just like this, and they suggest using either a pcl5 or ps driver instead. I explored using add printer and found that there is a windows 7 64 compatible driver hp4100 ps available if i select to use windows update to find all the latest printer drivers.

Since i could not find any way to get windows 7 to let me select the driver (it always installs hp4100 pcl6 without asking or letting me intervene), i tried going to printer properties > advanced on the printer screen. I selected new driver, chose the hp4100 ps driver from the list, and it seemed to install it. However, as soon as i went back to printer properties, i got an error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed and asking if i want to install it.

When i look under print server properties, the hp4100 ps driver is listed. It also appears on the printer properties > advanced screen for the driver. However, every time i select printer properties i get the error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed. It seems to be a problem of the error message, not the driver.

The other strange thing is, if i select properties for the printer, and look at at hardware, it shows hp4100 pcl6 (the one i removed) along with usb printer services. What can i do to get windows to recognize this new driver? Or, alternately, if i delete the printer, what can i do to keep windows from reinstalling the default hp4100 pcl6 automatically when i next plug in the printer and let me select the driver i want. I could find no way to override the install.

I just upgraded from windows xp to windows 7(64 bit) and have a xerox phaser 6180mfp. I downloaded the 64 bit driver and installed it. The test page printed out just fine during installation.

The system cannot solve the problem and i can't find anything helpful on the microsoft support site. Can anyone help?

Error - Print Driver Host For 32bit Applications Has Stopped Working

"print driver host for 32 bit applications has stopped working" error in qickbooks pro 2009 with windows 7 professional 64 bit. When i try to email an estimate from quickbooks pro 2009 (which uses the quickbooks pdf converter 3. 0 installed in the devices and printers group) i get the following error "print driver host for 32 bit applications has stopped working". Sometimes this also happens when i try to print estimates or invoices using an hp laserjet 1020. Other times i can both email the estimates and print, so the problem is not consistent.

I am using windows 7 professional 64 bit on a new hp dv8t laptop. The problem did not exist on my old windows xp pro  sp3 32 bit machine, it has only come up since i got the new computer with win 7 pro 64 bit (same quickbooks pro 2009 and same hp 1020 laserjet). I have the latest updates from quickbooks pro update, but they did not solve the problem. The problem signature below is from my latest failure to email an estimate.

This printer connected easily to desktop running vista when set up wirelessly.

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?

Programs Sewing Machine Brother 6000

Do you think its possible for a sewing machine to get a software problem? Obviously if its ran by software it could get a software problem. Brother 6000 isn't mainstream? Who would even bother except a rouge phd to invent the demise of sewing machine. Personal very personal very very personal. I fell in love with the quilt sewing embroidery machine the first time i saw the brother 4500 beautiful , computer operated, perfect. Then i got scared what if it had a computer problem and its difficult to get parts and service for a 2003 hp compac? Not many people own or even know what a brother 6000 is, or know how to fix it.

I am looking for a quilt embroidery machine if you have any experience and most have some computer operation to them. My sewing machine is not computer operated its just a regular singer. Then again i don't have to worry about a sewing machine virus and the issues of fixing it and worrying about it. The brother 6000 is about 10 thousand dollars , lota money for a sewing machine. In fact way to much for me. I just wonder if computer operated sewing machines get viruses? What is a good yet inexpensive one?

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?

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.

Remove Local Printer Port - Change Print Driver Associated With Port

How do i remove a local printer port, or change the print driver associated with the port. I added a local printer port machine-name-printer-name to address a printer that's attached to an xp machine on my home network. There was no driver for my printer (hp officejet v. 40 or the v series), so i tried installing it with the officejet d series. Well, the test page didn't work. I deleted the printer via control panel, but apparently the local port didn't delete. I can't add the printer again, i can't delete it, and i can't change the driver. So i'm stuck.

Print Jobs Sent Do Not Print

After installing win 7 ultimate, my hp f4180 all-in-one stopped working. Test print jobs were sent to the printer, the printer icon appeared in the taskbar, but no documents showed up in the print queue. Nothing printed. A very lengthy session with hp support did the following:

- Reinstalled the win 7 driver
- Deleted the printer and then added it back
- Confirmed that the printer could print a test page from its own controls
- Stopped and restarted the spooler

The computer recognizes the printer in the device manager and says it's working properly.

Cannot Print Anything

I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit (dell inspiron 537s, if that makes a difference). My problem is that i can't print. Anything. It doesn't matter if i try to print to a physical printer, or if i try to create a pdf file using the adobe pdf printer. Nothing prints. There are no error messages popping up when i try to print. It just doesn't print. When i go to the printer settings, i can see the documents in the queue with "error", but that's it.

Here's the thing that stands out. Whenever i right-click on the printer and select properties, i'm not getting the usual 5-10 tabs. I'm only seeing two:  general and hardware (and nothing else). It doesn't matter if it's the physical printer, adobe pdf printer, or the windows fax device, i get the same odd properties display.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. At this point, i'm about ready to reinstall windows 7, but i'm hoping there's something simpler i'm missing.

Cannot Print Wirelessly

I've got an epson sx515w printer-scanner-copier, which i can't print to wirelessly from win 7 (64-bit edition). When it's connected using usb, it works fine. When my wife tries to print wirelessly from her macbook, it works fine. I can scan documents, and they're automatically sent to my win 7 pc without a problem. When i send a job to print, it just sits there in the queue, alternating between saying "printing" and "spooling", every 30 seconds or so, but nothing gets as far as the printer.

I've tried reinstalling all the drivers (which are win 7 certified), i've tried using msconfig to stop all my startup options, but nothing i seem to do makes any difference at all. During set-up, the pc can "see" the printer, and when i send a print job, i get information on the ink levels, but still no printing!Can anyone help me with this?
