No. Make sure you have the drivers installed for the scanner part of your printer. Other than that, you will have to play with the settings. It may be a hardware failure in the printer. That could cost you.

Go to the Brother web site and put in your MFC info and you may download it for free. If you find it to be difficult you may call Brother for support and they will walk you through it. Do not have to be under warranty. Hope this help you out.

Brother mfc-7840w won't receive fax


The first thing that I would try multiple people to ask them to fax you.Sometimes the 2 machines don't "sync".This is a toll free fax test number that I always use to check my machines..1-888-473-2963.Just write the words "FAX TEST" in large letters on a blank sheet of paper..fax it to that number...leave the line open...you should get a fax back in about a minute.If you get a fax back...your machine is fine...let me know if this was helpful....thanks.

I just want to scan. I can't find ink locally and I don't need it, yet Brother tech support says to correct the problems that come up on the lcd screen. The only error is "Replace...


From past experience and current research, you can not scan with an error on the LCD screen. Therefore you would have to replace the ink before the scanner will work.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

My Brother LC61, bought in Nov.2010, won't print black. Recently replaced black ink along with all color inks...replaced black ink again when it quit printing...still won't work. Machine whirs...


This is common problem with Brother Printers. I am going to assume you are using Non-Brother branded ink cartridges. Brother cartridges have a cleanser in the ink that most generic cartridges don't have. This in turn causes the jets to clog and not allow ink to pass through them. The fix is to go buy a couple of Brother cartridges and do a cleaning with those cartridges. You may spend some money doing this as a cleaning wastes a lot of ink, but it will clean the injection lines and fix the printer. You could also consider buying a new printer. I know this is not the answer you were looking for, but it is the true answer. I just bought a new printer due to this fact.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Canon mp390 won"t print,on third print head in 12 mths still won"t work ,don"t know what else to do other than scrap it and buy a different make of printer


Hi. I share your frustration. Three heads in one year is unacceptable. I think your idea of purchasing a new printer is a good one. Look for sales and put this frustration in the trash as it must have a more serious issue going on. J.

Scanning pictures and saving to compact flash card for sharing


You might want to try to be sure, but I believe the SD card slot is only for printing, not for saving images. You would have to have the copier hooked up to a computer or to a network in order to send the scanned images somewhere.

Does printer need to be connected to a pc?


From the Brother website: The MFC-5440cn offers both a versatile flatbed and an automatic document feeder with faxing and copying that don’t require the use of a computer. Add to that the spectacular high-resolution printing and scanning with both a USB 2.0 full speed and an Ethernet interface and you have the perfect all-in-one for the Small Office/Home Office user to create and print professional color documents. You can even print borderless photos.
Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
