Question about Brother MFC-8860DN Printer

1 Answer

How do you setup scan to desktop from Brother MFC-8860?

I can use the software, which allows the desktop to initiate the scan. What I would like to to is initiate the scan at the FMC-8860 and receive it on my desktop. (I don't have to worry about max email size doing it this way)

Creimer352,

The feature you are requesting requires you to have access to an LDAP directory for the printer to use to get the files to you. Typically these features are found on Print Servers in corporate networking and unless you have the resources and or knowledge to configure such things I don't believe you will be able to do so.

Why does my Brother mfc 420 cn shut off and turn back in the middle of scanning

Brother mfc 9420cn unable to scan on display


Hi Alex

I'll hazzard a guess and presume you can print and copy OK, just get the message when you press scan.... is that right? If so then please tell me how it is hooked to your pc ie network or USB and if you previously have had this brother scanning to your pc and how you are trying to scan ie to a folder or email?

I ask because I'm thinking you are getting unable to scan message due to your brother not being able to connect to your pc, not because you have a sick Bro (printing uses different software and firewalls and anti virus progams dont interfier as they can do with the scanning process)

IYour PC and MFC need to be set up to allow comunication between the two and it is different setup if it is via USB or Network (blue cable) as your machine can do both (cn = colour and network)

Easiest way is to reinstall using your brother disk that installs MFC Pro suite or you can download it from brothers web but get the full package not just the driver..

Let me know answers to my questions and if I'm guessing right or if you need more info or help setting up the scanning software. I could be guessing wrong and theres a problem with the machine but if I am then it wont copy either as scanning and copying use the same parts of the machine just different parts of your software, and this is my trade and my guesses are educated even if my spelling isnt;);)

Regards
Steve

My Brother MFC-7420 test prints fine but says it's not connected to my computer when I try to scan. Help.


You need the brother scan software running on your computer before you try to scan unless you use one like picasso and initiate the scan from your computer.

My Brother 8860 DN does not copies, yet it can print . The menu screen only allows fax, not scan or copy.


This is commonly an issue with the Keypad PCB. We can get you pricing on parts if you want to try this as a repair. Does the machine beep 3 times when you hit the copy or scan keys?

I have a Brother MFC 8860 DN Laser.
Just contacted Brother and they told me the following:
1. Switch off machine from Mains
2. Press and hold the Red "Stop/Exit" button
3. Switch on machine from mains.
It worked fine with me and the memory is back to 000 now.
Hope this helps.
