MAKE SURE YOUR BROTHER MACHINE IS THE DEFAULT PRINTER

If the printer driver is not set as "default printer", you can not print. Make sure your Brother machine is set as default printer. If your brother machine is not set as default printer, set it as default printer.

  1. Click Apple Menu and choose System preferences..., click Print & Fax, Print & Scan or Printers & Scanners.
  2. Choose from pull down menu of "default printer".

If you connect the brother printer via USB cable, the error message The printer is not connected or Offline is displayed on Print Queue when the USB cable is disconnected or the brother printer is turned off. Connect the USB cable and turn the brother machine on.

If the other error message is displayed on Print Queue, check if the LCD display or LED indication of your Brother machine is not showing some error. If an error is displayed, go to the Troubleshooting section and find a solution.


REGISTER THE PRINTER ICON AGAIN

  1. Choose your printer icon.
  2. Click [-] button to delete the printer icon.

If you use the printer via USB connection, reconnect the USB cable or restart the Macintosh or your brother machine.

Go that manufactured web page and download the newest software for your printer. Also contact apple and explain the issue. I might be that printer is not compatibly with mini mac operating system.

I hope that helps. Also how are connecting the printer to your mini mac are you connecting it though usb or though the computer network? Thats another factor to think about.

I have a MacBook and the Brother HL-2140, they work great with no problems. Should have the drivers for Windows and Mac on the same disk. I am connected by USB.

Unable to scan documents using my . I can see 'new MAC computer


MACS are obviously different than PCs and have disparate operating systems.

Make sure you have the correct MAC drivers for your device. Check the Brother web site first and then the Apple site to look for tips or search their knowledge base.

My office (small office - 6 people) just got a Brother (wireless) laser printer (a HL-2170W). I'm bringing my macbook in tomorrow and I'm wondering if there're any special hints on getting my mac...


You just need to have the Mac driver for the printer installed on your printer. If it came with mac software, just run the software and have it search for the printer on the network.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
