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

1 Answer

I can't scan on my Brother MFC 5440 CN

I was able to scan on this printer a couple of weeks ago and now can't. I have moved to a different location and so had unplugged the printer from my imac (macOS X, version 10.4.11) had plugged it back in again - and can't scan. It will print and copy just not scan. I'm desperate - anyone got any ideas?

I had never had an issue with this MFC 5440 CN until now,It was working perfectly and since a couple of days ago it does no want to print. All ink levels are OK, there are no pieces of paper stuck...


Ivan, see if there are some paper clips or other similar objects stuck somewhere around the paper rollers. There are micro-switches around the rollers, you may want to take a brush and clean up any dust buildup that may be causing these micro-switches to trick the printer into thinking that there's a paper jam of some kind

Brother MFC 5440 CN, Can the color be turned off?


You may be able to select black only from the driver properties
One of the options is to use grey scale

goto printers right click on the printer Properties you may find the option within those settings
NOTE however, each time you switch the printer on it may use the colour as it starts and calibrates

Brother MFC 5440CN Low Ink problem


Maybe you can try reinstalling the driver or if the cartridge was bought from 3rd party, you might want to buy one directly from the manufacturer.
Good Luck.
