Hey rip
Have you made the brother printer the default?
Have you installed the OCR software?
Some OCR software packages prefer you to scan into a document.
I use a HP unit that will not allow me to scan a document unless I scan it into a compatible software format, written or typed pages into WORD, photos in photoshop etc.
Try uninstalling the printer and then reinstalling it again
Turn off, any anti virus and firewall software you may have running and if you can update the software from within itself, update it
Dont forget to turn your anti virus and firewall software on after you have finished
go to the Brother website and download the latest drivers for use with your chosen operating system

Have fun !!

    Hi Rip,

    If the OCR software has not been installed, then the printer software cannot scan the document and transfer it too the OCR software.

    You told me that you have Office installed, so open Word and under the import menu, there should be the option to scan in a document and then run Words own OCR software over it to give you an editable page!!

    Also, have a look on the printer driver disk to see if the bundled OCR software is on the disk but not installed by the printer driver installation routine. It may be inside a different folder on the disk which may also have a misleading name.

    This happened to my wife, the software was on the install disk but it was in a folder called "inhibit",

    so she assumed that the folder was for another use.

    OK, if all else fails, there is heaps of third party OCr software available.

    Try www.download.com or www.tucows.com etc

    Try a search or google "OCR software" or even "Brother OCR software"

    Try www.driversguide.com these guys have a huge database of drivers and related application software.



    Please let me know what happens..





    Swoop.

Do you have a CD to install this printer? if you do go into MY COMPUTER where you can erase things and erase the printer and its system then shut computer off and restart then reinstall the printer using your CD to reinstall it. Some times you have to delete things and reinstall them to work.

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
