Hi! My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help!

Sorry about your printer troubles. Tell me, what operating system is on your computer?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
windows 7
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, go into Devices and Printers, right click on the printer that's giving the problem, and select 'Remove Device'. Once its gone, unplug it from the computer and plug it into a different USB port. It should attempt to reinstall. Afterward, see if you can print. Let me know if this works or if it doesn't.

no the status is green
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

ok do i need to uninstall the previous driver or just download now
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
there are two options - full driver and software package or just the driver
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

No need to uninstall, I would get the full driver.

i installed the full driver, it still says printer error
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

Is this the only printer you have?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it is the only one close by - could it just be old and worn and need a new one
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

I was just curious if you had another installed if it would print. Having a hard time deciding if its a printer problem or computer. Where do you see 'printer error'?

Ask Your Own Printers Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
on the printers and devices > on brother, it says printer error, when i click whats printing it also says printer error there
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok.

At this point I can offer a premium service called 'remote assistance' and diagnose the problem myself. This will help me determine whether or not it is a problem with the computer or the printer itself. If it is a problem with the computer I will most likely be able to fix it. Of course if its something in the printer I won't be able too. Its up to you whether or not to accept, and keep in mind that its a 50/50 shot. Please review the offer and let me know what you decide.

no thanks i will just buy a new one, thank you though.
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

Try one more thing, just for the fun of it.

Click start, you should see 'Computer'. Right click on that and click Properties. Click Device Manager on the left. Click the little arrow next to 'Universal Serial Bus Controllers' to expand it. Find 'USB Print Support', right click on that and uninstall it. Once its gone, restart the computer and see if you can print.

it did not print - it says a print job in the print que is preventing other print jobs, it does look like two print jobs on there but i only clicked print once
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

There should be a little printer icon down by the clock in the bottom right hand corner, double click on it, right click on those print jobs and cancel them. Once the que is empty, try again.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i tried printing and the looked onthe icon and it said error printing
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
i noticed it says printer is off line
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

It isn't seeing it then, as if the cable is unplugged. Do you have a different cable?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it didnt work thank you. I will buy a new one. thanks
Technician: Thomas, Technician replied 1 year ago

Yeah, it isn't communicating to the computer if it says offline, unfortunately. If you've already tried a different USB port, there must be something wrong in the printer itself.

Have a great week!
