    after checking with tech support the main pcb might be bad. if the machine is 1 year or less, you will still have the warranty,other wise you will have to take it in for service

Not receiving any Fax, only can send out Fax.


Hi Mechanic.

The problem could be with your phone service if you are on digital lines, you would have to install a digital to analog filter. If you are analog the comm errors are typical of a line with a lot of static. You can change two settings on the printer which should solve the issue until you install a filter.

The two settings which are under the fax set up menu/ all faxes\
Error correction mode (ECM) set it to off
Fax Speed set it to medium.

Good luck

Unable to Scan


Remove the TWAIN software and reinstall it. Best if you can use the add/remove software in the control panel. You might want to look in the Device Manager for the USB entry that controls the device and remove that. If you find it open with an error, definitely remove that entry.

You might want to check with Brother to see if they have a updated driver for your 5840.

My scanner/faxer won't scan for my mfc-490cw brother product. I always have to reset it and push 20 buttons so I don't remember how to do it. Can you help?


I have the same problem. It was working fine, then after not using it for a few weeks, all the sudden I couldn't scan. I'm hooked up wirelessly through my router. I can initiate a scan both from my PC and from the scanner itself, when initated from the scanner my PC responds and shows the progress bar, and the scanner actually scans. However for some reason no data is being sent back to the PC. And after a few minutes I get an error message saying that communication was lost (or something like that) error TW007. Yesterday I called into brother support and was on the phone for an hour and a half. they walked me through verifying connectivity, uninstalling and reinstalling the software and drivers, but to no avail. In the end we made no progress. I can print without a problem, and fax and photocopy. But for some reason it seems that the scanner is not transmitting the information back to the computer, even through the connection was established and the computer is waiting for the data.

I cant scan a document in my computer


During a normal installation of the HP All-in-One software, the following events occur:

1. The HP All-in-One software CD-ROM runs automatically.
2. The software installs.
3. Files are copied to your computer.
4. You are requested to connect the HP All-in-One to your computer.
5. A green OK and check mark appear on an installation wizard screen.
6. You are requested to restart your computer.
7. The Fax Setup Wizard (Windows) or Fax Setup Utility (Mac) runs.
8. The registration process runs.

If any of these things did not occur, there is most likely to be a problem with the installation. If the essential icons (Scan Picture, Scan Document, and Send a Fax) do not appear, your installation might not be complete.

If your installation is incomplete, you will need to uninstall and then reinstall the software. Do not simply delete the HP All-in-One program files from your hard drive. Make sure to remove them properly using the uninstall utility
provided in the HP All-in-One program group.

HP PRINTER 2840 WONT SCAN TO WINDOWS FAX AND SCAN PROGRAM


well........ first of all it depends on the Operating System on you computer, then starting from there the advice that i can give you it is to fully uninstall the software and then install the software back using the version that is on hp.com
after that when you have the full sw installed you have to set up the scan button on the printer from the twain scan window but that will be a piece of cake. just make sure ot get the software properly installled.

HP L7680 All in one will not send faxes from PC S/W interface


After much thrashing, here is the solution to the problem. Somehow the printer drivers lost coordination with the corresponding Windows supporting programs. You would think that reinstalling the printer drivers would fix the problem, AND IT DOES, but there are 3 tricks:

· Uninstall everything associated with this printer with the install disk in the computer (this may really not be necessary, but it worked for me). [This is also the solution when the a window comes up asking for TrayApp to be inserted using a disk—they mean the hp install disk].

· After the un-install, MAKE SURE you ALSO delete the printer using the control panel. This is critical. If this doesn’t happen, the corresponding Windows software is somehow hooked to the wrong thing when the reinstall happens. Then reboot the system.

· Install the new drivers with the printer off, and the USB disconnected from the printer. Reboot the system [not sure the reboot is necessary]. After the computer has booted, connect the USB, and power up the printer. The computer will recognize the printer and put the printer icon in the Control Panel.

It turns out that correcting the driver mis-coordination by BOTH uninstalling the printer drivers and taking the printer out of the control panel, then properly reinstalling solves BOTH the fax problem, and the protection fault problem! Amazing such a little thing can make such a difference!
