Dear Scott, I own a brother DCP-7020 which uses a control center to manage it from the PC.
Just got the above printer (MFC 9200C) from Father in Law. Fine. Plug and play with Windows XP. Fine BUT The manual which I downloaded, speaks of a MFC Managment software to configure the printer easily using the PC and which allows controling the MFC with the Keyboards. The Brother site has no mention of this software.
Just use the FAQ and get support from brother website. I cannot say, why the Brother website did not mention for the MFC Management Software, use with Keyboards (may be it is not user friendly or compatible for all Operating system)
For any other querry, you are welcome to get help from me, anytime, anytype.

Go to brother web site and look for support center , on the right side of the search online support center enter your group mcf or dcp series and then your model. If you try the left searching box you'll never find it. good luck.

Your printer must must be connected to the computer. Does the MFC say Check connection? The Brother software must be installed. It creates a folder called ...\Control Center 3\Scan inside the user's My pictures folder where the scanned pictures are stored. That is what I get when I use the Scan button on my MFC-5460CN. If you use the Control Center you can choose the target storage location as well as the picture format (.pdf, jpg, etc.)
Had the same problem. The solution was:
- uninstall the brother software with the application in the brother folder
- reinstall mfl-pro Suite
- install update to Controlcenter2
- install updated drivers
It then worked and I could finally scan over the network, for the first time ever!
I cant find the machine DCP-7020 but I think this machine is the same with model MFC-7420 if you have the installer CD follow these steps:
For USB Interface Cable Users For Mac OS® 9.1 to 9.2 & Software 1 Turn off and
unplug the MFC from the AC outlet and disconnect it from your Macintosh, if you
already connected an interface cable. 2 Turn on your
Macintosh. 3 Insert the
supplied CD-ROM for Macintosh into your CD-ROM drive. 4 Double-click the Start Here OS 9.1-9.2 icon to install the printer and scanner
drivers. If the language screen appears,
select your language. 5 Click MFL-Pro Suite to install. 6 Follow the
on-screen instructions, and restart your Macintosh. 7 Connect the USB
interface cable to your Macintosh, and then connect it to the MFC. DO NOT connect the MFC to a USB port on a keyboard or a nonpowered USB hub. 8 Plug in the power
cord and turn on the MFC. 9 From the Apple menu,
open the Chooser. 10 Click the Brother Laser icon. On the right side of the Chooser, select the MFC to which you want to print. Close the Chooser. The MFL-Pro Suite, Printer driver and Scanner driver have been
installed. To install Presto! PageManager, click the 11 Presto! PageManager icon and follow the on-screen
instructions. Presto! PageManager has
been installed and the installation is now complete. You can easily scan, share and organize photos
and documents using Presto!PageManager.
Updated the Brother original driver(Full Driver & Software Package) for the following products to fix a driver installation problem:
FAX-2820, FAX-2920, DCP-7020, DCP-8060, DCP-8065DN, MFC-7220, MFC-7225N, MFC-7420 ,MFC-7820N, MFC-8460N, MFC-8660DN, MFC-8860DN, MFC-8870DW, MFC-9420C
And here is the link of the updated full driver and software package. After you download this, you should be able to run the MFC 7820 with your new laptop=)
The fuser has failed and needs to be replaced. If it is still under warranty Brother may cover it. If not you will have to take it to a Brother Authorized service center. It may be possible to find a used one on Ebay, even if its just for parts. Some of these smaller machines require extensive dissassembly to replace the fuser and shouldn't be attempted by a novice.
