If it can copy copy correctly then its not the scanner. most likely you do not have the scanner software installed.

The scanner needs to be reset. Turn off the device and then turn it on again.
Please note that when you turn off the MFC's power switch its memory will be cleared. To check whether the MFC has faxes in its memory, click here.

Brother MFC-8840D printer w/false paper jam indication.


With my Brother 8840D I have had paper jams that when cleared would not delete from the display nor would the machine operate until I unplugged the machine for around eight hours. I guess it is a sort of reset or reboot.

Just got a new computer w/windows 7 and now my brother mfc-8840D won't scan to pdf now? Any ideas on a solution to fix?


How to get a MFC-8840/D/DN to scan to Windows 7 over the network or by USB:

First - Download the Windows Vista Full Driver & Software Package from Brother: Brother MFC-8840DN driver download page

Install the drivers using a custom install - pick only the Network scanning drivers, unless you want the other junk - no promises on how well the other stuff works.
-------
Alternatively, if connecting the MFC-8840DN to Windows 7 by USB, download the Printer and Scanner Driver for Local Connection. It is a separate download. Install only the Scanner driver.
-------

Once the Vista scanner driver is installed, you can test by running the built-in Windows 7 Scanner Wizard. Here are instructions on how to test.

As far as conversion to PDF, that will depend on the software. I am not sure if the Control Center or Paperport softwares work on Windows 7. I have not tried those. I have found that freeware STP will works fine.
Here is a link to the STP homepage.
Here is a link to how to use STP with the Brother MFC-8840DN

Black copies and black scan


sounds like you have a CCD problem or possibly a board. CCD stands for charge coupling device and its what interprets your scan original to convert it to digital form. these machines carry a 3 yr warranty. hopefully, its covered still.
