Question about Brother MFC-8460N All-In-One Printer

Open Question

My Brother MFC 8460N won't scan -

When I scan something it scans it from the network Brother 8460N not the one sitting right next to me. I can print directly from my computer to my printer, but when I need to scan something I have to walk into another room, put the document in, walk back to my desk, click scan, then walk back to the other office to retrieve the document.

A real pain seeing as how lazy I am...

if the message refers to the scanner, open the cover of the feeding unit on top of the printer and clean it with compressed air. Most probably an insect got stuck somewhere

How can I print from the top of my brother printer


Hi

You cannot print from the top feed,

The use of the top paper feeder is the capability to make single or multiple photocopies and for single scanning or multiple scanning. All you have to do is to put single or multiple document in the top feeder and press the COPY BUTTON (third button-right side). Then it will feeds automatically.

The same with scanning, press the SCAN BUTTON (first button-left side) and it will scan single or multiple document.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Brother MFC-8460N network printing, local scanning


Yes this is possible. Depending on the type of installation that has been done on the computer, you can even scan documents to your computer as a network scanner.

You can check and see if all the features have been installed on your computer. Click on start, all programs, and look for the folder called brother. If you can find brother you can look for the sub category for Conrtrol Center. From Control Center you can scan by clicking on one of the icons. Like file or image.

If none of this is installed, get your installation disk and install the software, you can do a network installation or a Local (USB) installation.

If you decide to do a Local installtion remember to only plug in the USB cable when promted to.

If you decide to do a network installation, the machine should already be installed on the network, which I assume it is since its being used as a network Printer.

Please let me know if any of this info was usefull, and if you require more info about this.

MFC-440CN: Prints but does not scan


Go to system/computer control panel, select "scanners and cameras". you should see your brother system in there (if u were able to print to it but not scan). Right click on it, select properties, and select "Network Properties" Tab. Choose select "specify your machine by address" rather by "by name". Most home/home office users dont have a local domain server at home, so even though your printer was named, it cannot be located by tcp-ip using the name, but rather by ipaddress. This solves the issue.
