You need to replace your toner.
if you still replaced your toner. Then unplug the machine and wait for 1 min. then plug it on the power to see what's up.

if still not working,
open the front cover, push option and push 00

Since upgrading to windows 10 I am unable to scan. Message Is Unable to write the file to this folder. Please make sure you have correct permissions to write to this folder. (CC3-107-00431005)


That sub folder is in a windows protected folder. See if you can create a folder un your libraries subdirectory and name is scanned docs. Then tell the scanner to send it to that folder

Always says problem with connection on lexmart 85x never connects


Save yourself some frustration and money on ink and buy a new printer. I personally like Brother as they don't complain as much as the other brands when you use generic ink. Traditionally Lexmark ink is quite expensive.

Copies are being printed with a line vertically down the side of the page. Only happens when copying using the hopper.


If it's a thin, sharp line, it's just a blob of ball-point pen ink on the scanner glass. Lift the lid, and you'll see the narrow strip of glass that the scanner uses when you feed a document through the feeder. Clean that with a rag dampened with window cleaner, or, better yet, alcohol. Even a dot of ink too small to see will show as a solid black line on anything you copy, scan, or fax via the doc. feeder.
Don't use so much cleaner that it runs under the glass.

Black lines in copies and fax's Brother MFC 7420


If the black lines comes when using the ADF (top feeder), try to see if you get the same problem when using the scanner glass or receiving faxes. If you don't, you simply have to clean the glass strip to the left of the a4 sized scanner glass. Wipe it with a dry cloth piece, no paper and no water/alcohol. If you see some dirt there that you're unable to simply wipe off, try to use a cotton wool to "rub" it off.

How to scan a file plz explain me


Scanning is like copying, but instead of making a paper copy, the scanner puts a copy into a file in the computer. Search for something called 'twain' in your computer.

Scanner - MFC 7420


Get the manual, and you may need the install disk too. Look carefully at the usb port on the copier so you get the correct usb cord.

I just got a new Dell Windows Vista Laptop. I currently have a Brother 7420 printer, fax, scanner, copier combo. I can't get the scanner to work. Please HELP... Thanks, Pam


I presume the print and fax parts work. Can you make a copy? Have you checked the driver software? The CD that came with the equipment usually installs the scanner software as well. try reinstalling the software and see if it works.

Vertical lines on photocopies/faxes


The MFC-7420 Manual recommends cleaning the scanner glass and white plastic bar above it with isopropyl alcohol. Page 11-22 has a diagram.

I am having a similar problem but cleaning it did not work. But try that first.
