Go into Control Panel and complete the Scanner Wizard provided by Windows XP, then try scanning pictures or documents again. If you have the disk to the printer/scanner autorun the installation again. It will just overwrite the old install, not a big deal. If you do not have the disk, look online for the "free installation disk Dell A940 Printer/Scanner" and run from this free website. Let me know how it goes.

I just recently purchase a Brother Printer - MFC-685CW and I have a Dell PC. There is a scanning feature and no instructions. Could you please send me the scanning instructions via e-mail -...

Hi Denise, I can't send you the instructions but if you log into Brother I presume or they'll have them, possibly pdf format so make sure you have Adobe acrobat installed.
God Luck!
