Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
When i installed the all in 1 on my computer all works except the scanner
The registry patch file suggested by "mistertee" is also available via the Brother site:
If the link doesn't work try searching for the filename using Google (for example). I would hesitate to download anything from an anonymous website, but this file is available directly from Brother.
This patch solved my scanning problem after I had wasted several days struggling.

Your problem is probably due to a bit of faulty code in the installation CD. Point your browser to the following URL and download the patch.
Extract and run the file (BrWIARegRepair.exe). Reboot your PC and attempt to scan an image through ControlCenter2. Hopefully this will solve the problem for you.
Good luck :-)

Can you do a normal copy in b/w and in color?
If yes, the scanner hardware is ok. In that case you have to uninstall and reinstall the mfl-pro suite. If you are working thru network instead of usb, check the firewall settings.
