I have the Brother MFC-240C printer connected to by laptop. I have Vista 64. The printer works but I cannot scan, it says connecting to computer but nothing ever happens. What do i do?


First do you have the full software installed? Select your version of Vista (32- or 64- bit) here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc240c_all

If you attached the USB cable to the computer and the printer before installing the full software, uninstall the generic driver that you have running and then unplug the USB cable before installing the full software. (Generic OS drivers often only run the printer on an all-in-one.)

Next replace the USB cable (scanning requires bi-directional communication and thus can fail when the printer works). If you have a USB hub or print server, try a direct connection. Try starting your scan from the computer. (Launch the software (PaperPort SE) and hit the scan button, if your installation CD had a Vista compatible version. Otherwise, try to scan in Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner) or Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan))

Next make sure that the monitor program is running if you want to launch the scans from the unit. This is the ControlCenter 3 - and you need to set the destination buttons for the scanner in the software. Look for the Device Button tab for each of the scan icons in the software.

I hope this helps.

What is 'print unable 51' never had a paper jam!


Do the following:

Print Unable
XX
The machine has a mechanical
problem.
—OR—
A foreign objects such as a clip or
ripped paper is in the machine.

Open the scanner cover and remove any foreign
objects inside the machine. ( You might try cleaning the scanner glass.)
If the error message continues, disconnect the machine from
the power for several minutes and then reconnect it.

Try this and let me know what happens. Binary Bob

Brother MFC-240C init. unable AF error message


Sure. No prob.

Open scanner cover as you would do to check for a paper jammed sheet.

Do open the plastic which runs from middle to the right side (looks like a "Z" turned clockwise). Use a small screw diver for that. beneath you will find th flat cable of the scanner. You have to reconnect the flat cable by simply sticking it into position onto the main circuit board. make sure flat cable is in good position and click the" Z  "onto the channel. Close cover then power up and do what ever you want to do with your mfc ;-)

MY MFC-240C ISN'T WORKING


You simply have to reconnect the flat cable of the scanner to the main pcb.
Therefore you have to open the mfc by opening the scanner cover as when you have a paperjam. Loose the the blue support by pressing down the clip on the right side and pushing the support to the right.
Disassemble the "Z"-forming by carefully pressing it up at the latches which can be seen. The flat cable has to be connected to the main pcb simply by sticking it into position :-)

Error will disappear.
