Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Incomplete scanning and copying

Hi, hope someone can help. I have a MFC-240C all in one, and printing seems fine, but when I copy or scan a document to PC only the outer edges of the images show up the center is blank. Even when I ran the scan with the door up and no doc, the center registers as white and not black. Any suggestions ?

FAILS TO COPY FROM A SCAN


Hi

Scanning takes an image on a document on the scanner's platten and converts it to a digital file format stored on your computer.

Copying is scanning + printing.

To copy, you do not need to separately scan first and then print. Just select how many copies you need on the number pad, then press either the Black or the Colour COPY buttons on the scanner (or open the printer's/scanner's software and click on COPY), while it's connected to the computer and the document will automatically be scanned and printed (copied).

I hope this helps.

My mfc240c says to replace the yellow ink cartridge but I don't want to spend money on that if the 'light bulb' is ruined. When I turn on the machine, I don't see any light for scanning or copying. ...


By the "light bulb," do you mean the scanner lamp? That lamp should only turn on when you are actually scanning, faxing, or copying a document. You should be able to still use the machine to scan and fax, even with the yellow ink empty. Try scanning a document to see if the scanner lamp comes on.

As far as printing or copying goes, you won't be able to print or copy anything until you replace the yellow ink, even if you try printing in black and white only.

Won't scan


Hi,
I would uninstall the dodgy mydvd program, and use Spybot to clean up the malware it has spread on your system.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Brother MFC240c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.
