Is the scanning software installed?
What OS system are you using?
is your Firewall blocking it?

Black line on scanned images from Epson GT-1500


Dirt on the scannner glass? Small thin strip of glass at left of flat glass. Might be hard to see but the scanner will pick it up.

My Canon MX420 All in one printer will print but not scan. I just got it out of the shop for another isssue; do I need to download another program?


Hi my cannon MX 420 wouldn't scan if I tried to use the button on the printer. However if I opened the printer file from control panel, there was an option for scanning, which worked great. In the scanning options box read and choose each time you scan. Hope this helps

If you installed a windows 7 compatible driver it should work. If the driver you installed is not compatible try running the "troubleshoot compatibility" by by right clicking on the scannner program icon then click on troubleshoot compatibility.

Won't scan but prints and copies


turn off computer. turn on - does a test page print? You need to unplug the USB cable from the printer and put the test page on the scanner - push scan. This should scan the page. Turn off computer, hook USB back up. Try to scan whatever you are scanning.
Hope that helps!

How do i reset my scanner on the brother mfc-6490cw all-in-one printer/scannner/fax so i can scan in legal size documents? now i can only scan in letter size.


Launch scanning utility from computer instead of using the scan button on the Brother. Tha will give you more options. You also may need to configure the Brother software settings.

Scanner and copier do not work


In your case, the scanner light is not lit during the scan or copy. If you print something from the pc, it would print just fine. Try to powercycle the printer, then try copying again. If it persist, scanner is defective but you may still use it to print from pc.

Problem scanning to PC.


Scanner needs:
1- a second ethernet cable and its own IP address.
IP address should be similar to the printer.
2- a folder in PC ie: C:\SCANS. This folder should be input in scanner web page (entered in the address bar of a browser ie 192.168.1.10)
3- Install the file utility resident program in PC.

Scanner problem


Try uninstalling and reinstalling the scannner. Scanner's can be tough. Try disconnecting USB cable and reconnecting too. How recently did the scanner work? Try reinstalling the scanner software/driver. Also see if you can trouble shoot by right clicking on scanner icon from control panel, scanner.
repost if none of these work. thanks.
