Question about Brother DCP-110C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanner or PC?

My DCP110c does everything right except it won't scan from the machine to my computer. It prints from the computer, documents and photos, not a problem. When it comes to scanning from the scanner to the computer it says, connecting to PC, but it doesn't. Scans to printer fine. Is this problem with computer or scanner?

Re: Scanner or PC?

Neither is it a prob with the computer nor with the scanner.


Let me guess,

either is your usb connection cable longer than 2m or you have connected the usb printer/scanner cable to a usb hub.


Do use a cable no longer than a max of 3m and do connect the usb cable directly to the computer usb slot.

Have you considered installing the scan tools on the other computers? Print sharing is a function of windows; assuming that the printer is not a true network printer. Windows does not have the ability to share scanners. But this is where the software can scan the network and find a HP scanner. Also some scanners can perform a "scan-to" function; but I believe the software need to be installed on the destination computers for this to work as well.

Gestetner Aficio MP 1600 was connected to my System and I use it as photocopier, scanner and printer. The machine's Drum was changed of recent and it has failed to scan any of my documents. However, I...

Changing the Drum does not affect the scanner settings.
You can print because your PC (computer) can see your machine but for scanner is the oposit. The machine must see your PC.
I think that in this machine you have an SD card with the scanner funtion. Try to take it off and then put it on again. (the SD card is on its side. In the controller box)

If you still have any doubt reply to me.

How do I copy documents?

Unfortunately you won't be able to copy directly from this machine since it's only a printer. If you have access to a scanner you can use it to scan your document, save it to your machine, and then print it on this device. Otherwise you'll need to purchase a Multi-Function machine that includes a Scan/Copy feature.

Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

Dell 922 AIO does everything except print from PC

Two things to try:

1. If it prints the alignment page, sometimes you have to put the page back on the scanner glass and hit continue or start on the printer for it to scan back in the alignment page to complete the alignment process

2. If thtat's not it, try going to add/remove programs in control panel and uninstall all dell pritner software, then reinstall using the link below:

Computers cannot find the Sharp Scanner on the network

Are you using Sharpdesk? first check the firewalls, allow the exception, if that is not it, then from network scanner tool profiles, Change the Port, I believe it defaults to port 4687 - or 4689? (this uses an FTP port,) Allow this port in the exceptions. If the network scanner tool is not running, your machine will not communicate with the PC.
