Brother MFC scanner bar is stuck

I have a Brother MFC-J6710DW and it\'s been working fine for a couple years. The other day I was scanning some documents when I noticed the scans started coming out "BLACK". Just a completely black square. I was still able to copy at that time. Now the scanner bar is totally stuck on the left hand side and won\'t come out. When I turn it on I get "unable to INIT.AF" See Troubleshooting in User Guide. (Yeah right...) I already messed with the guts and pulled off the inside cover, pulled the plugs on some of the connectors, so far I figured out the white connect, (not red or blue) is the one that powers the green bar scanner.
To me it looks like the machine thinks the scan bar is over further than it is, because when you start the machine, it moves about 1/2" to the right, then returns left and makes a nasty grinding holy noise. Like grinding gears and melting wire.
So do I toss this and write off another 300 bucks for a new one or tinker? Any ideas? My only thought is tear into the light bar area and move it manually and hope it re-calibrates...

Brother mfc-j6510dw will not scan


This may help others with scanning issues:
I just bought this 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.

What's your problem?brother mfc-j6710dw paper jam


I had problem with Brother MFC-J6710DW complaining about paper jam. Went through whole paper jam procedure a few times with no avail and no visible paper jam anywhere. Found (googled) this to be a common problem for this device. Turn off / on didn't help either.
Finally ... I followed procedure to the letter, bowed possible dust away and ... pushed tray 1 all the way in. (It turned out it was not all the way in when I first started troubleshooting, and was pushed to the same inadequate position subsequently.)
This MFC is low-cost. Meaning it has few sensors, and subsequently is not very precise reporting errors.
Remember: "paper jam" alert may mean something not on exact place it should be, with this otherwise (so far) good value for money MFC.
