If it's a matter of the option from the printer-display itself, and the selection button is not working, unplug and let sit for at least 2 minutes... power back up and see if it's fixed. You can also "force" it to go to printer mode by going to the printer's menu, and print a test-page.

Hope this helps!

I try to scan a document and it says that I am not set up on pc. I use just the scan button and it still won't scan. Help please!!!


Verify cables connected properly to the back of the scanner
If the scanner is a parallel port scanner it is likely it has two available connections on the back of the scanner. Verify that the cable coming from the computer is connecting to the IN, Computer IN, computer, or similar connection.
Ensure that the scanner is getting power
If your scanner is not getting power it is recommended that you check the connections ensuring that they are connected properly to the back of the computer and from the scanner to the wall. If you have the scanner connected to a power strip and or surge protector it is temporarily recommended that you connect the scanner directly to the wall.
If the computer scanner is getting power, you should notice the inside light come on when the power is first received by the scanner.
After checking the connections you still get no power to the scanner, it is recommended you contact the manufacturer of the scanner.
Additional parallel port scanner troubleshooting
If you have another device connected in between the scanner and the computer, turn off the computer and temporally disconnect the devices connected to or from the scanner. If, after disconnecting these devices, the scanner works, it is likely that another device may have issues or may be unable to work with other parallel devices.
PC Windows users verify no TSRs are running in the background
Press CTRL + ALT + DEL and end task all currently running software except explorer and systray and attempt to scan again. If this resolves your issue it's a possibility that an application in the background such as a virus utility is preventing your scanner from scanning.
Verify the LPT port mode
PC users ensure that the LPT port mode within the computer BIOS is set to either EPP or bi-directional mode and/or try alternating between these two modes.
Update the drivers
Verify that the latest drivers are installed for the operating system being used on your computer. A listing of computer scanner manufacturers and links to the drivers pages can be found on our scanner drivers page.

Hi guy's, thanks for your assistance. No you diddn't solve my proble, but it did make me think and go back to basic principles.
I was trying to operate my EPSON DX8450 printer in scanner mode fron the machine, can't be done! You have to access it and operate from your SET-UP system in your computer!

Regards & thanks

Black line down the paper on copy mode. Ok in print mode.


There is most likely something on your scan glass that is blocking the scanner. Clean of both pieces of glass that are there when you flip open the ADF, or top cover. Try to copy again. If it is still there then there is either something on the scanner piece that moves back and forth to scan or one of your scan LEDs is burnt out and the scanner will have to be replaced.

Machine error AE on brother MFC 6800


The error is from the scanner. It is possible the scanner lock on the underside of the scanner has shifted and not allowing the scanner to correctly return to the home position. Try Checking the scanner lock and make sure it is not in the locked position. Then turn off and on your machine while holding the menu/set button. the machine will come up either with an error or in maintenance mode. either way enter 99 and see what you get. Maintenance mode is a dangerous place to play around in. 99 exits maintenance mode. 91 resets all parameters to factory setting except stored locations like phone numbers and location information. 01 resets every thing to factory. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING IN MAINTENANCE MODE. CCDHP is scanner home position sensor. It will probably reset just by turning the machine off and on.
good luck.

Error 42 means scanner error. Just unplug the scanner cable and re-plug it. If thats just a connection problem then it should be back to normal. Otherwise there is a problem with the scanner itself(usually the scanner's motherboard is faulty)and you will have to send it for repairs.
