Fix problems while connecting Brother® wireless printer
What are the tips to resolve the problems that can come while connecting wireless Brother printer with laptop?
Any computer, laptop or mobile device can use the printer without being physically connected to it, provided it is within range. There are also adapters available that allows a regular printer to be set-up as a printer. All computers experience problems occasionally but they usually are easy to fix. The first step in troubleshooting a wireless printer is to check that the power is on and that the controls are working normally. Look for any flashing lights or warning messages that might give a hint as to what is causing the problem. Check that the printer appears in the local network on the computer that is trying to use it. The printer might not be able to connect if the network settings have been changed recently.
The common problems that may arise while connecting wireless Brother printer with laptop is:
- Printer fails to print
- Error messages
- Paper feed problems
Printer fails to print
First makes sure the printer's electrical power supply cord is plugged into a wall outlet and that the on or off key, located on top of the printer, is pressed. If the printer has power, it determines whether the printer is online. Click the 'Start' button on the desktop, and then select 'Printers and faxes'. Then right-click one time on the printer's icon and make sure that the use printer offline selection does not have a checkmark. If a checkmark does appear, you can click on 'Use printer offline'.
The wireless printer produces a no paper fed message, either the printer is out of printing paper or there is a paper jam. After loading the printer with paper or clearing a paper jam, press either the color start or the black start button. An "Out of memory" error message means the printer's memory is full. This message typically appears if the fax or scan functions are in use and the machine is in the process of scanning or faxing documents. Press the 'Stop' or 'Exit' button, then wait for the first task to finish.
A number of things may cause paper feed problems, including using paper that is damaged. Overfilling the input paper tray, using odd-shaped paper or paper not designed for use in a printer may also cause problems. It removes the input paper tray and takes off the output tray. When you pull out the paper support flap and unfold it to its greatest length. Flip through the stack of paper before inserting it back into the input tray. Place the paper in the tray and adjust guides so they press against the margins of the paper.
