One thing to check and be sure of is that your printer cable (USB) is definately a USB 2.0 cable. Canon have an issue with their printers with scanners in that the data flow sometimes isn't sufficient when an older USB cable is used. The slightest drop of data on startup or during scanning will cause a stop.

Worth trying and has sometimes solved the problem for my customers.

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.

Scanning with [Start] on the Machine
By pressing [SCAN] [Start] on the operation panel of the machine, you can scan
documents to your computer.
Pressing [SCAN] [Start] has the same effect as clicking [Save] in the MF Toolbox.
You can change the settings for [Save], or set up a button other than [Save] to
perform the same operation. (See “Setting the Scanning Function for [Start],” on p.
3-3.)
NOTE
You can use the machine for only a local scanner (connected directly to your computer).
1 Place the document face-down on the platen glass or load it
face-up in the ADF
2 Press [SCAN] [Start] on the machine.
If you are asked to select a program to launch, select “MF Toolbox Ver4.7.”
Scanning starts.
The MF Toolbox and the [Save] dialog box will open, but the document will be
scanned without pressing [Start] in the [Save] dialog box.
The scanned document will be processed according to your settings.
When you use [Start] for the first time, a folder with the scanning date will be created in
the [My Pictures] folder in the [My Documents] folder, and your document will be
saved in this folder. If there is no [My Pictures] folder, the folder with the scanning date
will be created in the [My Documents] folder and your document will be saved in this
folder2 Press [SCAN] [Start] on the machine.

Im trying to scan a document but its saying error code 2106. i have it hooked up through wireless


Try these things:

1. place a doc to scan in the scanner. Close the lid and hit MENU, COPY document, START.

If that doesn't work you'll need to contact kodak. If it does then try this next:

2. Check for ADMINISTRATOR rights.

  1. RIGHT CLICK on the kodak icon and select Properties > Compatibility tab > Run this program as an administrator
  2. Select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR
  3. click APPLY
  4. click OK
Then try scanning again. If it still doesn't work then-

Reload the driver:

  1. select Start > Run.
  2. Type %windir%, then click OK.
  3. Double-click twain_32.
  4. Right-click Kodak, then select Delete.
  5. Insert the KODAK All-in-One Printer Software CD into the appropriate drive, then go to (cd drive: > printer > scanner.
    Double-click aioscannr.msi, then follow the instructions to remove it
  6. Then go to cd drive: > printer > scanner, then double-click aioscannr.msi, and follow the instructions to install the file.
  7. Open Home Center Software
  8. Select Scan Documents and Pictures.
  9. Scan a document
If it still doesn't work then you'll need to take it in for service.

Scanning Multiple pages into one pdf


Scanning a multi-page document as a .pdf file reverts the settings for rotation, selected area, etc. to default for any pages after the first page. This applies to Mac OSX 10.3, 10.4, & 10.5. A simple, but tedious work-around is to scan each page as a separate file and easily recombine them using OSX Preview. Just open the first page, view the Sidebar, and drag-drop the additional page files into the sidebar. Save and it's all one multi-page .pdf.

My scan is not prorerly working? Is coming an error "plz select the another application,this application is not found"


Hi dpknarwal,

In case anyone else would like to assist as well, please note that the model is Canon 8180C - on FixYa all questions are categorized according to the product model, so if it's not in the question, it's in the header above the question.

Now, to answer your question, have you installed the software that came with the machine? If not, do so now. If you have, try uninstalling it and re-installing it. Also make sure that the Canon is connected to your computer. Try unplugging the cable and plugging it back in. The instructions for installing the software are in the in the software guide, which you can find at this web address:

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900008039/imageClass_MF8180c_Software_Guide_EN.pdf


To scan on this machine, press [moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpgScan], then [B&W Start] or [Color Start]. If this is the first time you've tried scanning with this machine, you may need to select a program to work with the scanner. Try selecting moz-screenshot-2.jpgMF Toolbox ver. 4.9 (or whatever version you have).

The other option is to use your computer to scan the document. Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Scanner and Camera Wizard. If it finds the Canon, it will scan the document. If not, then the software and/or driver is not installed correctly. You can also perform this function with other programs on your computer, such as Paint (choose File > From Scanner or Camera...) or even Microsoft Word (choose Insert > Picture > From Scanner or Camera...) If the program finds your scanner, it will import the image. If it doesn't, then the software and/or driver is not installed correctly.

For your reference, the basic User's Guide for your Canon can be viewed at the following web address:

http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900008008/imageClass_MF8180c_Basic_Guide_EN.pdf


I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Kind regards,
H2H
