Re: Scanner was erased

There's a couple of things you can try:

1. Mostly likely you are using a usb cable (cable from the computer to the printer). Unplug this from the printer and then back in. See if the icon for the scanner comes back.

2. Reload the Brother Software. I believe it uses paperport for scanning.

3. Run system restore. This is under your pick a task section in Help and Support for XP. If that's what you are using.

I cannot print or copy . i see error 51

Error 51 is a paper jam code. Remove the paper tray in the front and the jam clear cover in the back (the light gray plastic piece in the center of the rear of the printer) and pull out any paper you can see.

Once you've removed the paper, the jam code should clear on the display, but if it doesn't, try resetting the machine. If the jam code is still there, that means there is still paper somewhere inside the machine. Check again to make sure you didn't miss any, and also lift the scanner bed to see if you can see any paper under there. (To lift the scanner, lift up with the tabs on either side until the scanner locks into place.)

Printer/scanner won't work

Should just be 1 disk for the install. Go to your devices and make sure your printer is plugged in to the power and to the computer. Click on add a printer, select add a local printer, and the computer should scan and recognize your plugged in printer and install it again. If your computer doesn't see the device, check your cable.

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
