SOURCE: MFC-665CW Scanner keeps saying Connection Failed

I think I solve the issue for scanning so far. Here's what you do goto control panel -> Scanners and Cameras. Then right click into propertise, then check Specify your machine by address. It should already have the printer IP address listed in the box below. If not our can goto to your router and see the ip in the DHCP Client List .

After this I'm able to use the Control Center 3 scanning.

I think the problem was the NODE name list in the setting in my winxp pro does not match the actual NODE name the printer is using.

Why won't Brother DCP 7020 Scanner connect to computer?


Try opening the Scan function from the computer and pull it from the MFP printer instead of being at the scanner trying to push it to the computer. Your Brother DCP 7020 would have to be on the same network and installed on the computer you are trying to use. Check your usb cable, Ethernet cable or if wireless - check the Wi-Fi connection settings (network name and correct passphrase).

Brother DCP 585CW unable to print error 46


A possible reset might solve hence remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer driver software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can
also be poor ink cartridge contacts

When I press Scan on my Brother MFC440CN, I get an error message ''Check Connection''. I just want to scan a picture to card, which I did many times without an issue.


instead of scanning using the button on the machine try it from the computer. Brother normally gives the control center program, you can find it in all programs in the brother folder. you should be able to scan from here. if not there is probably a connection problem from the printer to the computer

Printer printing in with stripes


You can try to perform a power purge, do it by the following:
  • Enter maintenance mode. Either with starting your machine with Menu button down, or by pressing Menu, 2, 8, 6, 4 quickly. The fax/copy/scan buttons should flash/be lit.
  • Press 7, 6.
  • Press 3, the machine should now say something like "POWER_P" or "P_PURGE"
  • Press Mono/Black start, the machine should now say "cleaning".
  • When it's done, the display should say Maintenance, and you can leave this service mode by typing 9, 9.
You can now try printing a test page again, the result should hopefully be better.
Be noted however, that this purge takes ink from your cartridges, but it's more likely to solve the issue then just trying to do more "regular cleaning".

What are the instructions to scan using Brother DCP 1000? I laid the docment face down and pressed Scan To and nothing happens but showing another selection in the glass window.


To Scan on Brother DCP 1000 you need to click on the "Paperport" Icon on the desktop. Then Click on "Twain." Lay your document to be scanned face down on the scanner glass. Press the "Scan To" button on the Brother DCP 1000 printer. On the "Twain" window click on "Start." Note: When I clicked on "Start" it initially scanned blanks. I clicked on "PreScan" and saw an image. Then I again clicked on "Scan" and it worked. I named each document I scanned and saved them in a folder for later use.
