I have to ask. Did you install it via a disk that came with the printer? If so , did the disk specify that it was for the VISA version of windows?

It's brand new. Bought it off ebay. Got it hooked up to computer windows vista. It will print but it won't copy or scan. All I really need is the copy but it won't. it prints fine


Did you run the installation CD that came with it? That installs all the drivers, which include scan, copy and print. Vista installs generic print drivers, which is probably why you can print. On some printers, the copy and scan commands run from the printer control panel, sometimes via the installed software.

Incidentally, Vista was one of the most hated versions of Windows, only slightly in front of Windows Millenium Edition! You should try Win7, 8, or 10. They are far superior.

What is the make and model? Reply by COMMENT so I get notification.

I can't find software for Brother MFC-6800 printer for Vista....I can print only..I can't find scan, copy software for vista


The OS has a built-in driver that should automatically install when the USB cable is connected. Check Windows Update for new and optional updates if you don't see the printer appear. If you use a bi-directional parallel cable (with the computer properly set up), use the Printer Wizard and then the Add Device Wizard (IIRC). The scanner won't work over the network.

Try using one of the programs built into Windows: Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan), Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan) or Photo Gallery to launch a scan. Alternatively, get a third-party software option (Paperport, for example).

Go here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us_ot/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us_ot&lang=en&prod=mfc6800_us to get a utility to improve the scan resolution.

I hope this helps.

(Scanner problems can often be resolved with a new data cable and a direct connection between the unit and the computer. This assumes that the scanner is unlocked (for those with a transport lock) and that the unit is properly lighting up and the scanner is moving freely.)

Canon mp600 scan problem vista windows 7, does not scan print ok,


Do you have Windows Vista or Windows 7? They are two different OS. Drivers are available here. If you haven't downloaded and installed the latest drivers, uninstall all drivers on your computer before installing these. Be sure and download/install the MP Navigator also.

Hp color jet 2840 cannot scan on windows vista but can print


The problem is Vista. I had a similar problem and the only solution at the time was to remove vista and install good old reliable XP. Now just put windows 7 on and you should be ok.

You have probably installed the XP driver from your CD. You need to remove it, and then install the proper "Vista" package from Lexmark's website. Here: http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,,204816596_652569478_0_en,00+en-USS_01DBC.html

Updated to Windows Vista and now the Dell 922 AIO scanner won't work


For windows Vista; it is imperative to run the Vista patch which can be found on the Dell website (Downloads and drivers).
Make sure that you run the patch, after removing the printer USB cable from the computer. Restart the computer as the patch suggests and then install the Vista specific drivers, which also need to be downloaded from Dell Website.
Again, do not connect the printer unless the installation software asks you to.
For scanner issues, those who are unable to get anything scanned to their computer, and are able to print, it is essentialy a Firewall/Anti-virus issue. You can check that out by trying to scan using an application such as MSPaint (Start> type 'mspaint' > hit enter).
