Hi NattyNatty,

The issue seems belong to software. You can remove or repair MFL-Pro software (including in CD-ROM).

Black line down page when in COPY mode on MFC-240C


You need to poiwer cycle after cleaning as the scanner only calibrates during power up. If all is clean, even the white bar over the small glass assembly, and you power cycle the machine and it's still there, you will need a new scan assembly.

Won't scan


Hi,
I would uninstall the dodgy mydvd program, and use Spybot to clean up the malware it has spread on your system.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Brother MFC240c) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Hope that helps.

Black line down page when coping from copy feed


The small glass surface at the top of the scanner bed had some gunk on it. I scrapped it off and the line went away! Yay!

Scanner


Can you copy?
If yes, what windows system do you run and did you install the complete mfl-pro suite?
How do you connect the machine to the pc? Do you use a hub or did you connect it directly to the pc usb? The latter one is the right one for scanning.
