When I use the printer to scan via the document feeder, I get two parrallel lines down the right hand side of each page of the pdf. I've cleaned the glass and everything else but still get the lines....


Open the scanner cover and you will see two glasses. One long and thin and the other larger than an A4 sheet of paper. The long thin glass is used to scan thru the adf and the larger glass is for flatbed scanning.
As your lines are from the adf scanning, you will see tippex on the long thin glass. just clean it off and all will be well. Clean the flatbed glass as well while you are doing the job on the adf glass.

Scanning images onto mac


The scanner driver is separate from the printer driver. This link will take you to the downloads page of Brother-usa.com, where you select the machine family, then the specific model. Click the downloads link at the bottom, then, and you'll get to a page to select what you want and for what OS. Brother lists Mac os's from 9.x to 10.6.
Even if you have a driver on CD, the website usually has a newer version.

Bad Scan Quality Using Brother MFC-7820N Document Feeder


Look to the left side of the flatbed glass for a thin strip of glass by itself. When you scan from the glass, the document stays put and the sensor moves across the document. When you scan from the feeder, the sensor stays in that glass strip and the document moves across the sensor. See what I mean? I would check the small feeder glass for dirt or scratches from staples or other flotsam. Also not a bad idea to blow out the feeder path with some compressed air to ensure the documents is handled smoothly. Hope this helps!

Sending multiple pages in one email attachment after scanning


well go to scanning setting and change it, you change the setting to be sent one by one, if its connected to network, browse the ip address and go to scan and change the setting, if to usb cable go to the driver setting and change it, and i think from the machine setting itself can let you, so its just setting.

Brother MFC-465CN How can we scan multiple documents?


Hello,

Make a stack of the documents you want to scan and load them in the automatic feeder: The page to scan facing upward, and the top of the page inside. Press the Scan button and start (color or black).
If you choose the pdf format, you will have them in a single file.

Hopr it helps.

In general the upper left corner of the glass. However you may need to tell your Brother what size the original is. Should be no more than pressing another button or two.
