Problem with Brother Printer/Scanner
I have a Brother MFC210C scanner/copier/fax/printer that functioned correctly until a couple of minutes ago. I tried to scan a page, but it somehow got stuck (xsane) and I "killed" the programme. Now, CUPS says the following:
Description: Brother MFC-210C
Location: USB printer on //Brother/MFC-210C
Printer State: stopped, accepting jobs.
"Unable to open USB device "usb://Brother/MFC-210C": No such device"
Device URI: usb://Brother/MFC-210C
And lsusb gives:
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0518:0001 EzKEY Corp.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 413c:3200 Dell Computer Corp.
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
It seems, my printer is not seen by SuSE anymore. Does anybody know what I can do?
Btw, often when I scan a couple of pages (one after the other), the scanner is not recognised anymore, but a restart fixes that. Any suggestions on that?
