Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My brother won't scan

*I have a brother MFC-210C All-in-one that won't scan anything straight to my computer.
*I got it second hand, for free, with no manuals or anything. I was told it worked just fine.
*I have a MacBook, Mac OS X, version 10.4.11.
*When I press the "scan" button, the little screen shows "scan: select *up arrow* *down arrow* and whatever I select the little screen only shows "Connecting to PC" for a short while and then nothing happens and it goes back to showing the time and date.
*Is there some specific programme or something that I have to have on my computer in order for the scanner to work?
*Or can anyone give me a step-by-step help on what I'm supposed to do?
*Or does the scanner on this particular brand of printers simply not work with Macs?
*I can use the Printer on it, though, and also the Copy Machine. And they both work fine. I haven't tried to use the Fax or the Photo Capture, because I don't particularly need those features.

With sincere hope of good answers.

Try updating the print drivers. You can also try doing a repair installation using the printer software or delete the printer and reinstall it using the provided software.

Scanner not working


Try re-installing the software that came with the printer. I am having similar problems and re-installing did the trick.

Just want to SCAN, with image going to computer


machine always refuses ANY function if a color is empty.

You can cheat the machine by sticking some thin black adhesive tape around the cart nose (looking from above onto the cartholder within the printer it is the right hand side of the cart).

This signals the machine a full cart.

I cant scan


You have to connect the mfc directly to a USB port of your computer. DO NOT use a hub.

The mfc uses the XP buil-in scan driver.

Did you install the whole mfl-pro suite? Use paperport to do scanning from your pc.

My brother mfc 210c won,t scan or copy


I just called Brothers product support and found out that these machines WILL NOT scan or copy or do anything until the ink cartridges have been replaced. So there is no other solution.
