SOURCE: Not able to scan to pdf file with Brother MFC-240C

What you seem to want to do is not possible. Let me explain:
A file that has its data in the Adobe company Portable Document Format (or a pdf file) contains various objects that are described to the computer using a superset of the PostScript language, some of them can be images.

A file that comes from the scanner is first a very organized set of pixels and gets put into a more compact form by using a well known process as defined by the Joint Motion Picture Experts group. This is a roundabout way of saying that it has a format that isn't PDF.

What you CAN do:
a) open the jpeg file with a Macintosh, using the Print command from the file menu make a pdf file that has the image in it.

b) buy and install a PDF printer driver on a Windows machine, and then follow the same process as A above.

c) Use your favorite PDF creation program to make a file with the image embedded.

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: Printer / Scanner won't scan to pdf

Hello! I had this exact same issue or question, I guess you can call it. And unfortunately, the CD-ROM user guide was a lot more helpful for me than the Book guide. But anyway, to answer your question and anyone else who has this same question ...

What you need to do is locate the ControlCenter3 software on your computer for a little configuration. This automatically installs when you install the printer's complete Pro Suite drivers on your computer.

You might be able to find it somewhere on your start bar (left or right side of the start bar). It's a small blue icon with the acronyms "CC3" on it. Anyway, click to open the software. Once opened, you'll need to make some configurations so that when you scan to file, it'll be "PDF" by default.

So once you have this software open, "right-click" on the circle button that says "File" and choose the option that says "Control Center Configuration". Up pops a dialog box with two tabs - Software Button and Device Button.

Now in order to scan to pdf from your Brother MFC 9840 CDW, you simply need to change the "File Type" in the drop-down box to "PDF" under both tabs. You can optionally also change the "File Name" to a recognizable default file name of your choosing (I chose to change it to say "PDF File") and you can also set your default "Destination Folder" (otherwise your scanned PDF files will automatically be saved in your "Scan" folder). That's it! No need to mess with anything else.

Most importantly, you need to make sure that these exact same configurations are made under both the "Device Button" tab AND the "Software Button" tab as well.

Click "Okay" and now try to re-scan your document as a File. It should automatically scan it as a PDF file to your computer.

I hope this helps solve your problem if you haven't already been able to figure it out.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-7840W Printerwill only give me Scan To FTP option now

i had the same issue - was previously able to scan to a number of different formats, then switched modems, providers and then only the scan to ftp option came up.
took me about an hour to figure out the solution, but now it works
for windows users: * go to your control panel * go to the scanners & cameras section * your printer/scanner should show up here * right click on it and select 'properties' * select the network settings tab and then -- enter in the correct ip address here OR -- specify your machine by name (enter in name here)
hope this helps!

All of a sudden photos taken on my digital camera won't go to my computer from sandisk compact flash card to Brother model # MFC-5895CW printer/fax/copy machine. What could have happened?


If you have 2 cables for that camera... you may be using the charging cable. Find the other cable and see if it talks to the computer. If it does then that is your data cable. If this doesn't solve your problem we'll try something else

I cannot find the slot to replace ink cartridges! Brother LC61CL


Which Brother all-in-one printer or copier do you have? The LC61CL cartridges fit MFC-255CW, MFC-290C, MFC-295CN, MFC-490CW, MFC-495CW, MFC-5490CN, MFC-5890CN, MFC-5895CW, MFC-6490CW, MFC-790CW, MFC-795CW, MFC-990CW, MFC-J410w, MFC-J615W and the DCP-165C . The cartridges could fit other printers as well.

I know that the MFC_795CW has a cover on the right hand side that you need to open when the unit is on. Then the cartridge carrier will move to the ink changing area. (For a new printer, there is a green protector in place that you need to pull out. Keep this in case you move the printer later.) This location applies for the DCP-165C copier as well.

If the unit is on but the cartridge carrier does not move to the opening of the ink cartridge cover, then something may be blocking the carrier from moving. This could be a scrap of paper or other foreign object blocking the route.

Brother has the support for most of their printers available here: http://www.brother-usa.com/Support/ . There is a specific link for just the manuals on the page as well.

More complete trouble-shooting guides are available if you search for your model from the Brother search box at the top right hand corner of the page. Go to the product details page and then see the Brother Solution Center links on the right hand side of the page.

I hope this helps.

The manual that comes with my brother MFC-7840W covers all functions ACCEPT scanning! How do I scan multiple pages into ONE file so I can send a single file to someone. Thank you, Jeff Vanskike


Information on the scanning function can be found here:

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/as/au/en/faq/faq_list.html?reg=as&c=au&lang=en&prod=mfc7840w_all&Cat=107


In order to scan a multi-page document into a single file, you must configure the scan to use a file type that supports multi-page documents. For illustrated instructions of how to scan multiple pages into one file instead of each scan being saved as a separate file go to here:

When I try to use my brother MFC-465CN as a scanner, it does not allow me to scan into a file. It always scans in a PDF file, even it I select scan to file.


Hi,

You can configure the "File Type" properties while saving as you will see the explanation in this link.

File Type:
This is where you can change the format that the file will be saved in. If you choose PDF(*.pdf) to scan and save the data in pdf format it will be saved as pdf file.

Hope this helps.

How can I scan files to pdf using Brother MFC-8640D


You will need to open the control center program which is installed when you install the printer on your computer.

Start, all programs, Brother, control center. Click on configuration then scan then file (or which ever you normally scan to). There are two tabs at the top, change the file type at top of each tab to pdf and press ok.

How to scan a file plz explain me


Scanning is like copying, but instead of making a paper copy, the scanner puts a copy into a file in the computer. Search for something called 'twain' in your computer.
