Hi tammy, you can either use the Windows printer driver which will allow you to set scanning resolution up to 1200 dpi which you can access through a program like Photoshop (File--Import) or the Brother Scanner Utility to go up to 19200 dpi resolution. If for some reason you don't have the scanner utility on your computer, you may have to install it from the disc that came with MFC-240. If you need further help let me know.

Blurred when i pdf the documents

that's a function of either the original resolution of the document(in DPI...dots per inch) or it's in the settings of your pdf convertor(same issue with DPI). the higher that number, the clearer is the output, and also, the larger is the file size too.

you have to install the paperport software. This should be done when you have run the whole mfl-pro suite.

go to progr. /scansoft/paperport/ click scanner and simply scan into the paperport desktop.

Hi NattyNatty,

The issue seems belong to software. You can remove or repair MFL-Pro software (including in CD-ROM).
