Scan streaks with HP LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw


This may not always be the solution, but in my case it was. If you are getting black streaks on your copies, try this first:

The problem is that that there a small piece of glass that the doc feeder use's to scan the original. You will have to clean the small glass it's about a half of a inch piece and is normally under the doc feeder unit. It will either be to the right side of the main copy board glass or it is under the doc feed unit where the paper goes down through the feeder. It is mostly some white out or other residue, on the glass, just clean with a monitor wipe or take a cloth & wipe, etc...... Good Luck
Online tip from Chris Coughlin, but I changed a few of his words.

How do I scan to a word doc? I hit scan and


How are you connecting the all-in-one to the computer? Do you have the full-feature drivers/software loaded? (If you use a USB hub, try being directly connected to the computer. The buttons are sensitive to any intermediate connection that might block bi-directional communication.) Can you scan from the software on the computer? Check the cables and ports.

Once you scan the document, you need to run the OCR software to convert it to a document format for your word processor. (HP sent a version of the I.R.I.S. OCR software on the included software disc.) HP recommends using WordPad (which comes Windows) as a intermediate before going to a full-featured Word Processor.

I hope this helps.

Not scanning full page


You omitted some details which might help diagnose the problem. For example, are you using the document feeder or the flatbed? Anyway, I'll take a guess here.

Check your paper size setting and make sure it matches the sheet you are scanning. (Letter, A4, Legal, etc.)

If this is not it, then try scanning from both flatbed and feeder and see if results vary. Note that when you use the feeder, scanning is done in a smaller window to the left of the flatbed, so make sure that is clean.

Won't recognize legal size paper


I have a Brother MFC-8840Dn (full legal-size flatbed as well as document feeder). I use Windows XP Pro and a USB connection. I'm not sure my fix works with other Brother models or different Windows operating systems, but it's a way to start troubleshooting at least.

I've always been able to print legal-sized pages from word processing or spreadsheet programs and receive legal-sized faxes. But I never could make legal-sized photocopies or PDF scans. The image was always cut off at Letter size. The fix is a Brother Utility set-up setting:

*** Go to Start / All Programs / Brother / MFL-Pro Suite MFC 8840Dn / Scanner Utility. (This link may also be called something like Scanner Settings.)
*** At the "Maximum Scanning Size", select "Legal" instead of "Letter/A4".
*** Click OK and restart your PC for the new setting to take effect.

It's like magic -- I can now scan a full legal-sized PDF, whether on the flatbed or through the ADF. I also tried a compressed TIFF scan and it came out fine.

**** Make sure your software and/or Brother Control Center scanning configurations are set to Legal if that's what you want for the particular image scan. The Brother Utility setting simply enables the option of choosing the larger legal-sized paper, which then allows the full legal-sized image scan, You always have to set your software to make that choice, just as you would to make and print smaller images on Letter, A4, envelopes, etc. (NOTE: I always start scans through software on my PC, like Adobe Acrobat or PaperPort, and the Utility Setting fix is working fine. However, I just tried pressing the SCAN button on the front panel of the MFC itself with a legal-sized document on the flatbed and through the document feeder. I still got Letter-sized image scans. So, there must be another setting somewhere for starting scans directly from the MFC that I'll locate later.)

I was about to buy a different brand of scanner because of the frustration with legal-sized images. It's like having a new scanner now :) I hope this Utility Setting info helps you troubleshoot your legal-sized image problem.
