I have registered my Brother MFC 9840CDW on the brother website but it still says "not registered" when I try to email a scanned document. I registered it online. Do I have to do anything on the...


If the LCD shows Not Registered when you enter a One-Touch or a Speed-Dial number, it means that an email or number is not stored there.

If you selected E-Mail and save the E-mail address, you can only use the E-mail address when you are in Scan mode. If you selected IFAX and save the E-mail address, you can only use the E-mail address when you are in Fax mode.

Your machine has 20 One-Touch keys where you can store 40 fax or telephone numbers or E-mail addresses for automatic dialing. To access numbers 21 to 40, hold down Shift as you press the One-Touch key

You can dial in any of the following ways.

Manual dialing
Use the dial pad to enter all the digits of the telephone or fax number.

One-touch dialing

Press the One-Touch key that stores the number you want to call. (See Storing one-touch dial numbers on page 60.)

To dial One-Touch numbers 21 to 40, hold down Shift as you press the One-Touch key.

Speed-dialing

Hold down Shift as you press Search/Speed Dial, and then enter the three-digit Speed-Dial number. (See Storing speed-dial numbers on page 61.) Three-digit number

How do i email a document when i have scanned it?


Make sure you know where the scanned document was saved to on your computer. Normally by default it is in My Documents -> My Pictures -> My scans. Then open your e-mail account, choose a new message and click on Attach. From there it'll prompt you to "browse" to the location of the document, once you point it in the right place, you basically hit OK and it'll upload it to the e-mail as an attachment. From there you can write your message and send it off.

I was scanning documents to my USB drive and in the middle of the scan it said Storage Full


A msg saying that your USB drive was full. Try scanning at a lower resolution or remove files of USB to free up space.

I am trying to figure out how to use my Brother MFC-8440 scanner. I would like to use it to scan documents to email out. When I go to Brother.com and look at the direction book, it doesn't have directions...


It is part of the Network User's Guide (section 10) and the Software User's Guide (section 3 for a PC using Windows, Section 8 for network scanning), not the User's Guide. The directions below are for XP and Win2K primarily. Slight changes may exist with other OS versions. (Full software is not available for Win7 so the buttons on the unit will not work. You will need to launch scans from the computer only. You can use Windows Paint or Fax and Scan without needing third party software. Then attach the file to an email either in the email software or by right clicking on the file and choosing Send to Mail Recipient.)

For either use, put the document face down on the glass or face up in the ADF.

If you use a directly connected computer, you need to set the destination for the Scan to E-mail in the Control Center (section 4-4 in the Software User's Guide). Open this program and make sure the correct machine is in the drop-down menu. This program needs to be running to hear the buttons being pressed. Click on E-mail to set which program will get the scanned document as an attachment for your e-mail. You can also set the resolution and type of attachment. If you do not want to use available file formats, you will need to scan in PaperPort (or other software) and then use that to attach the file to the e-mail. Then click Scan to launch the scan from the unit. Hit Set when ready to send.

If you have the unit set up on the network, then you can enter the LAN setup in the Front Panel (or a browser). Hit Menu 6 (and then the appropriate number for the next feature), such as TCP/IP, DHCP or Static IP (these are under 1), SMTP, POP3, Mail Address (Menu 6 2). Setup the Scan to email with Menu 6 7 1 for color and Menu 6 7 2 for black and white.

This automatically sends the item to the email server or PDF as either a PDF or JPEG. Then you need register the PC that will get the file to the unit, if you use scan to email (PC). (Your version of Windows will matter for exactly where the information is: Control Panel > Scanners and Cameras or Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Scanners and Cameras.) Right click on the icon for the unit and select Properties to see the Network Properties box. Go through all of this set up including the Scan To Button. Then the Control Center will launch the e-mail program when it "hears" you press Scan, select Scan to Email, press Set, then choose PC and press Set again. (or select the destination PC which has e-mail access and press Set again). Scanning will start.

If you have set the POP3 and SMTP servers and the unit can directly access them, then you can scan to e-mail and enter the recipient address. Press Scan, select Scan to Email, press Set, choose Email Server and Press Set again. Adjust the scan quality as desired pressing Set at each step. Once you go through all of the layers, the LCD screen will prompt you for the recipient's email address. Then press Start.

I hope this helps.

How to scan a hard copy, and send in an email?


Hello,
Install the Control Center CC3, if it is not already installed. Connect the MFC-5460CN to the computer. Open the CC3 software. Click the Scan button. You will have the choice to Scan to Picture, Scan to OCR, Scan to E-mail, or Scan to file.
You click to E-mail. The MFC scans the document and opens the default E-mail program (Outlook, Outlook Express), attaches the scanned picture and all that is left for you to do is to supply the E-mail address where the document is to be sent.

If you have problems doing that, scan to file then open the E-mail client to create a new message and attach the file you scanned.

Hope it helps.

Brother 9840CDW won't scan/fax legal size pages from glass or ADF


Is a setting in the printer.
Go to start >Brother> start center> on top go to configuration. then it will ask you for a password. use "access" for the password.
click on general setup and you'll see document scan at the bottom.
Change it from letter to legal and apply.

Voila!
