Question about Brother MFC 7420 All-In-One Laser Printer

Brother MFC 7420 - Mac - Won't Scan

At start up I get an error that appears to be related: Login Server Quit
Path /Library/Printers/Brother/Utilities/Server?LOGINserver.app/Contents/MacOS/LOGINserver
Printer/Copier/Fax works great.
I'd like to get the scanner up and running. Thanks

    The Drivers were the problem, using your tip and a bit more research it turns out that I needed to download updated scanner drivers from www.brother-usa.com.

Try this driver for your scanner from the Brother website (if the OS version is appropriate of course - if not, please post back with your current Mac OS version):

My brother mfc-7420 will print but won't let me scan and i can not find my disk


Go to the Brother web site and put in your MFC info and you may download it for free. If you find it to be difficult you may call Brother for support and they will walk you through it. Do not have to be under warranty. Hope this help you out.

Mfc 7420 scan issues = when I press the scan button, the error message is "check cable". What is it talking about? All cables are connected?


It may be looking for a USB connection for the scan function. Have you used the Control Center software to reconfigure the scanning settings? If so, perhaps trying a Menu->LAN->reset and then starting the setup from scratch would help. Or just plugging it in via USB to your PC or Mac.

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.

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.

The Brother All-In-Ones require the Brother control panel software to be loaded on a PC before you can successfully scan a document. You can download the software for either PC or Mac from www.brother-usa.com - Good luck!
