Brother printer not accepting data

I swear I'm going to dump these machines in the frickin' dumpster! Fresh install. Found I couldn't print my maps, very useful to me. Also found I didn't have my printer installed (Brother MFC-4620DW). I installed it. It still won't print my frickin' maps! Still I can't get anything done on these contraptions.

I'm still sick, still crippled, still dying.

And it's bedtime again!

Gotta get out of Dallas, by cracky!

I did. After I read your post I downloaded and uninstalled / reinstalled the driver. I was getting the same issues, so I looked into my firewall program (BitDefender). It turned out to be a "switch" that put me onto a Public network vs. a Home/Office network. The printer was disabled due to the fact the settings were to not allow 'outsiders' to utilize the network. Once I reconfigured BitDefender to my Home/Office network, all is well in printer-land.
From quote of others asking similar problems..
