Brother control center 4 won't open on my computer


This may help others with scanning issues:
I just bought a Brother MFCJ6510 printer/scanner and was nearly driven cracked trying to get the scanner to work as it was not talking to the PC, even though as a printer it was working fine. Realised eventually that it was just the Brother Control Centre 4 it wasn't talking to. After hours of re-installing software and updates, etc, nothing worked.
The solution: I went into Control Panel on my PC (I use Windows XP), to the Scanners and Cameras section, and in there the Brother Scanner was visible and could be used from there, Click on it to open the Windows Scanner and Camera Wizard and use that. Further, by right-clicking on it and going to properties I choose the software to start when it talks to the PC. I abandoned the Brother CC4 and set it up to start the Scanner and Camera Wizard if I choose 'Scan to Image' on the scanner control panel, and to open Photoshop if I 'Scan to File' on the scanner. Works fine either way, just make sure you choose the right dpi setting to suit your needs.
Hope this helps somebody else as frustrated as I was.

Scanner scans slow


Check the resolution. An average resolution is 300 ppi. If you choose higher values (600 ,1200) it will take longer.,

Have MFC 5890CN Brother. How can I scan legal documents?


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.
Thanks,
Pat

HOW DO I SCAN?


Hi, normally, if you have installed the complete driver set, the easiest way is to run a program with scanning capability i.e. photoshop, or word. the software normally given with a scanner is a 'twain' which becomes linked to the photoshop program. If you have MS word (I'll use this as an exAmple ), ensure the scanner software is installed, the brother switched on and connected to the computer correctly click Insert select picture then scanner - (or it may say twain). At this point the Brother mini program - the 'twain' should start and then follow the scanner instructions and a scan of whAtever you have selected should be inserted into the word document. Bit of trivia - TWAIN stands for Tool With An Interesting Name - yup it really is!.

Brother Scanner, scans the page but prints black and vertical


I called technical support for this issue previously with my brother mfc. It would only do this during color scanning. b&w scanning was just fine. The tech support put me through resetting the reference point of the scanner through a series of button pressing and closing and opening the paper feeder. I kept gettting the same lousy results. Then they determined that the scanner module needs replacing and I needed to take to the nearest service center.

Scanning speed slowed...


did you change your scan resoulution? The quality of your scans will determine how slow it will pass through. another thing to check is weather it is scanning both sides, another option in your scanner properties.
