SOURCE: init unable AF

AF means that the CIS scanner is (can) not (get)in right position. This could be because of a broken scanner flat cable, or a loose flatcable or a defective pcb. Check flatcable connection at the pcb (Open scanner like changing carts, open flatcable cover with a screwdriver. Does the flatcable stick in the pcb? (There is only the flatcable without a connector ;-)) Reconnect and power up mfc again. If it doesn't help please write again here.

Hello,
To scan legal documents you need to set the scanner to legal. GO to Start menu / all programs / brother / scanner utility and set the size to legal.

How to scan more than 1 page at a time


ADF : Place the item into the document feeder tray. The printed side faces up and the top edge goes into the tray first. Adjust the width guides to fit the item. Open HP Solution Center with one of the following methods:
  1. Click Start , click All Programs , click the HP folder, and then click HP Solution Center
  • Double-click the HP Solution Center icon on your desktop. A "Scanning from..." screen displays to prompt for scan settings. If this settings screen does not display before the scan starts, a preference was set to bypass the prompt. To adjust settings, follow these steps to turn the prompt back on:
    1. Cancel the scan, return to the home screen of HP Solution Center, and then click the Settings option.
    2. Click Scan Settings , and then click the appropriate option from the popup menu: Scan Picture Settings or Scan Document Settings .
    3. Select the check box, Prompt for settings at the time of scan , and then click OK .
    4. Click Home , and then start the scan again.On the "Scanning from..." screen, click the appropriate option under "Scan Shortcuts" on the left. Each shortcut has a default group of settings that display when you click it.
  • Click Change Settings , and then read through the drop-down menu choices for all of the settings for the shortcut, adjusting any settings as necessary. Also click the Advanced Picture Settings button and the Save to file Save Options button to view your choices and make any changes. Important : HP Solution Center versions and options vary, depending on your printer. For specific instructions on all the settings the software offers, click the Help button on the home screen or settings screens in HP Solution Center.
  • Click Scan . The preview screen might display, if you selected the option to show a preview. Use the options on the preview screen to make any desired adjustments before you finish the scan.
  • After the scan completes, it goes to the destination that you specified in the settings.
  • Scan Button: HP recommends that you first get comfortable with using the "Scan Picture" and "Scan Document" on-screen "buttons" in HP Solution Center as explained in the previous steps. By doing this, you determine the scan settings that you use most often, and then you can more easily set up the scan button on your printer. Important: Before you use the scan button on your printer, use HP Solution Center to create the settings for that button . For example, you need to decide whether you want a settings prompt screen and a scan preview for each scan. Also, you must create the list of "shortcuts" that you want to display on the front panel of the printer. To get started, click Settings , click Scan Settings , click Button Settings , and then click the tab for Front Panel Scan Buttons . Read through the options, and then create the settings that you want. NOTE: The steps to set up the scan button on your printer can vary depending on your printer model, and the version of software that is installed. For specific instructions, click the Help button on the home screen or settings screens in HP Solution Center.

    Very noisy especially at start up. continual clicking getting worse. I seem to remember some kind of recall message I ignored some months ago.


    Sounds like your harddrive may be starting to fail... Backup all important files while you still can..replacing a hardrive is a pretty inexpensive fix
