I want to disable the Brother MFC 6490CW LED lamps to scan in transmission mode rather than reflectance mode. I want to wire in a switch so the under glass illumination LEDs are going on the inbuilt...


The problem is a hardware issue.

I have the same unit and would love to know how to solve this short of applying opaque tape over the lights
.
Maybe a repair tech with a troubleshooting guide would know which pin would disable the lights, they'd be trying to enable them.

The second problem is that people don't read the question before posting a software solution.

Printer/scanner won't work


Should just be 1 disk for the install. Go to your devices and make sure your printer is plugged in to the power and to the computer. Click on add a printer, select add a local printer, and the computer should scan and recognize your plugged in printer and install it again. If your computer doesn't see the device, check your cable.

You will need to open the control center program which is installed when you install the printer on your computer.

Start, all programs, Brother, control center. Click on configuration then scan then file. There are two tabs at the top, change the paper size at bottom of each to ledger and press ok.

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.

MCF 6490CW SCAN AS A PDF


I was trying to figure out how to scan multi-page documents to a single file and found this on the Brother website:

Double-click on the ControlCenter3 icon located in the Task Tray to launch the program window.

Click on CONFIGURATION -> SCAN.

Choose the type of scan you require. The choices are: IMAGE,
E-MAIL, and FILE.

The Scan to configuration window will appear.

The SOFTWARE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to button within theControlCenter3 software interface. The DEVICE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to key on the Brother machine. Choose the tab you want to configure.

Under FILE TYPE select an option that allows multi-page documents:

a) PDF (*.PDF)
b) Tiff Multi-Page # Uncompressed (*.tif)
c) Tiff Multi-Page # Compressed (*.tif)

Click OK.

Unable to scan to email with gmail on a Brother MFC-6490CW


Use SMTP relaying. Set up a computer with SMTP relaying. Go into the Remote Setup Program for your Brother MFC and select Setup Server. Use the IP address of that PC in the Server Settings and set Auth for SMTP to None. Worked great for me. This document can help you set it up on the relaying computer/server. http://www.lesolsoncompany.com/InstantKB20/Attachment17.aspx

Brother MFC-7840W Printerwill only give me Scan To FTP option now


i had the same issue - was previously able to scan to a number of different formats, then switched modems, providers and then only the scan to ftp option came up.
took me about an hour to figure out the solution, but now it works
for windows users: * go to your control panel * go to the scanners & cameras section * your printer/scanner should show up here * right click on it and select 'properties' * select the network settings tab and then -- enter in the correct ip address here OR -- specify your machine by name (enter in name here)
hope this helps!
