Okay, well the error code you are getting points to a driver failure.The likely issue is either using the wrong software, or a hardware incompatibility.This is a very old and obsolete model printer. It actually is not officially supported beyond windows XP and windows 7. There is also a fair chance that there is an internal hardware issue in the printer, which may be why it was being sold in the first place. What we'll need to do is uninstall the printer (go to control panel, right click the brother, then Remove Device)Unplug power and usb to the printer, reboot the computerWhen computer comes back up, reinstall using this link: prompted during the install, plug power back into the printer, and reconnect the usb.
