SOURCE: Trying to scan, but keeps on saying "USB not connected"

I had the same problem.  The thing is I was pressing the scan button on the printer and getting the lovely "USB not connected" message.  However, if you open the printer icon in the dock (Mine is "HP Photosmart C4200 series") and click the Scanner button in the upper right hand corner, then click "New Scan," voila!  presto! and all is right with the world again.  
Yes, it is obnoxious that HP made a defective scanner button, and I may download the driver again when I get a chance.  But yay for quick fixes!

Ignore the instructions that come with the printer, choose Open System, then choose WEP, enter, and it hooks up. Thanks to the above posters for this solution.

SOURCE: Can't scan to PC with Brother MFC 8840D

My guess is a driver problem. I'm assuming you can print to it, so you know the USB connection is good. And you can make a copy (I assume), so you know the scanner mechanism and its connection with the rest of the machine works.
The scanner driver is separate from the printer driver. It's entirely possible to install and use the printer without having loaded the scanner driver. Best bet is to unplug the unit from your computer, then uninstall it completely from Windows. There may be an Uninstall program listed under Brother in your Start menu...All Programs... Or go to Start...Settings...Control Panel (or however your version of Windows get there) and open your Scanners and Cameras folder. If you find the Brother machine in there, Select it and click Remove. Do the same in the Printers folder.
Don't plug your machine back in until you have reinstalled the drivers. Go to www.brother-usa.com, and in the Service & Support box on the right, click Downloads. That will take you to a page where you'll select Multi-Function as your Product Group, then the model.
You'll get two lists of links. Forget Manuals, look at Drivers on the right.
Under Type of Software, click ALL. Select your OS.
You'll get a list of drivers and utilities for your model. Select the Full Package. Brother makes you accept the Terms of Use, then starts the download.
Look for Setup.exe in the main directory, or you may need to browse folders labeled with different language abbreviations to find it.
Start the installation, and don't plug your USB cable in until the computer tells you to. it will install the printer first, then return to install the scanner. It may require you to restart Windows more than once. Sorry.
Once you've suffered through all that it should be fine.

SOURCE: how to connect my brother mfc-8460N scanner can't

You will need to use a cable to use the scanner.

Either a USB cable to connect directly to computer or an ethernet cable directly to router, then you will need to install the driver software.

Connect brother mfc-j430w printer


CLICK HERE for the support page on the brother website, for that model printer. If the WiFi network you see in the printer network setup, shows a lock, you merely need to continue the network setup and enter the WiFi password (passphrase), for it to connect. You do need the correct password to succeed. Also you can only use one network connection type, at a time. Either WiFi or network cable, not both. Dosconnect any usb cables to be sure.

Our brother mfc-215C is not working and we can't find the cause. there's no lcd display. we had our internet connection reconfigured lately and when we tried using the printer it's not working anymore. do...


Yes, you have to reconfigure your printer... Go to settings, network settings, find the wireless network you are trying to connect to.... Be sure to have your password handy at this time.... Enter the password and allow 3 minutes for it to connect... Hope this works :) For the LCD Display, um check if the brightness is really low.... there might be a dead light or something that is wrong with the machine internally.... If it has been dropped, bumped, kicked these are all reason for it stop showing it's display... Hope this helps :)

I cant print any documents my brother MFC-255CW says offline and i cant get it to work


I had the same problem, and couldn't find a solution anywhere. My laptop said the wifi Brother MFC-255CW printer was offline, when the printer was definitely online and connected.
In the end I simply went into Control Panel / Printers, selected the Brother printer, and deleted it off the network. Then I chose "Add a Printer" from the network, and reselected the only printer on my home network - which was the Brother MFC-255CW that I had just deleted. The computer reinstalled the driver, and everything was fine again - haven't had a problem since.

Connot connect printer to wireless router


this may be due to the security password that is enabled in the router... its recommended to use WEP password in router to connect wireless devices...if you use any other encryption type like WPA/WPA2 then change it to WEP and connect it....if it is a belkin router then you need to disable the WiFi protected setup too.......
