No I am not getting any errors. I am not sure how it is connected to computer, it connected from computer to printer. My son who is away set it up and he will be back until 10/8/15. I need to prints some important paper today.

I would need to know the specific connection to be able to help you with this.

Is there a usb cord from the printer to the computer? Is it connected by wifi?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Now, I think of it , it might have something to do with the printer setup. Maybe you can go over it with me. I think it a usb cord
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I can fax from the printer when it is working
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the info.

Can you please check if there is a cord physically connecting the pc to the printer? If so, that is usb. If not, then it would be wifi.

Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

Okay thank you for confirming.

Please turn the printer off, and unplug the usb cord from the computer (the one that goes to the printer).

Go to your start menu, devices/printers, and right click on the brother, then Remove Device.

Reboot the computer (bookmark this page to get back to me after).

When the computer comes back on, plug the usb back in and power printer on

Go back to devices/printers, click on Add a printer (local printer) and it should find and install the brother.

Try to print.
