Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

After installing on my new Mac Pro, I cannot get it to scan to PDF from the machine's Scan button. It scans fine from ControlCenter, but when using the button, it asks for me to connect interface cable, even though it is connected to my home network.

I am still trying to scan 11x17 and I sent it up in control center but still not working right it scans 8.5x11


CHANGE CONTROLCENTER CONFIGURATION


1. Open ControlCenter. START -> (ALL) PROGRAMS -> BROTHER -> XXX-XXXX (Model of machine) -> CONTROLCENTER. An icon will appear in the system tray by the clock. You may have to click this icon to launch the program.


2. Click CONFIGURATION -> SCAN -> FILE (or any other scanning option youare using)


3. Under Software Button, change Document Size to LEDGER 11 x 17 in.


4. Under Device Button, change Document Size to LEDGER 11 x 17 in.


5. Click OK


6. Place document on the Brother machine.


7. To initiate the scan, left click on FILE (or any other scanning option you selected in step 1). This issue should now be resolved.

Lexmark 2600 scanning to MAC-no can do


Edward, I have this same problem. Were you able to solve it? Anyone, can you help? I have installed the drivers. When I connect the printer to my Mac, it launches ImageCapture and previews the scan fine. But I am unable to get the "scan" button to become active, adn there is no place to save the scan. If I click "save pdf to iphoto" it saves a pdf of the entire screen, rather than just the photo. Appears not to be Mac compatible for scanning purposes. Thank you for your help.

No preview shown after picture is scanned


If you use Brother's own software, you could: * Open it up (by the clock, called "ControlCenter" or "ControlCenter 3") * Right-click on the type of scan intended (i.e. scan to file) and choose configuration * Here are the settings controlling the scanning. If you change to "device button" on top, you'll get the settings controlling the scanning when you use the scan-button on the machine. * Change the settings to i.e. "show target folder" after scanning, depending on your requested settings.

HP ScanJet 7650 asking for DPE


This problem happened to me to (OfficeJet 6310xi). These steps solved my problem:

When the program has the error, there's a button so you can show it where DPE is. Click the button
Navigate to Macintosh HD/Library/Application Support/Hewlett-Packard/HP Scan Pro/DPE/
Click on DPE 11.6.app

Then I could scan to pdf. When I upgraded to Leopard, I reinstalled my HP software, even though HP says it isn't totally compatible with leopard.
