How do i scan? using a brother MFC 685-cw..can't seem to use the scanner.. anyone help?


I have a Brother MFC 7840W and have struggled with the wireless features. Not sure how you have this configured but if wireless suggest you find a way to connect via LAN or USB...I cannot make mine work via wireless but hardwired works fine. To fix, I had to 'reset' the MFC (functions on the MFC itself) and then reinstall the software selecting USB as the connection method. Sounds crazy but once I did it worked.

Cant seem to install my printer, have a MFC 685CW Printer and i lost the CD, i have gone to brother website and downloaded the driver and when i go through all the installations it goes to telling me to...


You need to remove the existing printer files with this "Delinfe.exe". It should be part of the reinstall instructions (even contains a link for download). Did you read them? HTH

Brother MFC-685cw stuck shutting down/standing by


Hold down that on/off button for at least 10 seconds without pushing any other buttons, wait after you release it and it should either wake up or shut down.

Brother mfc is offline -


For my MFC, my PC says its ready and working properly. It really only works when I'm not connected to my cable modem. All PCs use it then. It's offline otherwise.
