Brad, I bought a Brother MFC-J430w all-in-one printer from Office Max several months ago and haven't been able to use it because of a "kernel mode printer error". I contacted Brother's customer service and allowed him to connect to my computer and he couldn't fix the problem. He said it was a Microsoft problem and Microsoft wants me to pay a one time fee of $99 for them to "attempt" to correct the problem. I said no thanks to that. Can you fix the problem?
Hello! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed printer / computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. Was it working previously? Do you have windows xp, vista, or 7, or 8?

Are you still able to make a copy (not print) on the printer?

Can we do a remote session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

Thank you
