Did you just install the printer? My MFCJ6710DW prints fine from 
openSUSE 12.2 but not thru a VM. What driver did you select? You need to 
install both  mfcj6710dwcupswrapper-1.1.1-1.i386.rpm and 
mfcj6710dwlpr-1.1.1-1.i386.rpm or the equal for Ubuntu.

The scanner does not work from Sane but is workable from the scan button 
and using scanlite and aquireimages, xsane has some issues.Also in 
setting up sane as per the instructions they left out the product ID in 
the step to install the scanner. Note this has been corrected in latest 


# Brother MFC-J6710DW
ATTR{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTR{idProduct}=="0263",  MODE="0664", 
GROUP="lp", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

Would be nice if they came out with a 64-bit driver for printer.

Hope this helps.
