Question about Brother Fax Machines

Scanning We have a Brother MFC - 7820N printer/fax/scanner. How do I scan more than one page? The machine will only allow one page at a time. If I try to feed more than one page the paper won't feed through.

Our problem is not solved. It was suggested the feeder needed cleaning or wasn't working. The feeder works as we make copies of documents. If one is scanning can you feed the document or can you only scan one page at a time by placing it on the window?

Error message "check connection" yet the printer works wirelessly.


If printer driver was shared from one of the pc, only the printing function can be used. For scanning functions, all PC should be installed direct to the network/wifi printer. Disable all sharing for this printer for the group.

2-sided scanning


HI Nada,.. Don't know what exact problem you're experiencing with 2-sided scanning. But from what I've gathered on your machine, it may not be capable.

Please find the attached software guide for a range of multi-purpose machines, including yours. Page 41 leads into that function being available on the MFC-9560. Double there and on page 130 to see if anything helps in clearing up your problem.

Good luck,
~AD

Brother mfc-j6510dw will not scan


This may help others with scanning issues:
I just bought this and was nearly driven cracked trying to get the scanner to work as it was not talking to the PC, even though as a printer it was working fine. Realised eventually that it was just the Brother Control Centre 4 it wasn't talking to. After hours of re-installing software and updates, etc, nothing worked.
The solution: I went into Control Panel on my PC (I use Windows XP), to the Scanners and Cameras section, and in there the Brother Scanner was visible and could be used from there, Click on it to open the Windows Scanner and Camera Wizard and use that. Further, by right-clicking on it and going to properties I choose the software to start when it talks to the PC. I abandoned the Brother CC4 and set it up to start the Scanner and Camera Wizard if I choose 'Scan to Image' on the scanner control panel, and to open Photoshop if I 'Scan to File' on the scanner. Works fine either way, just make sure you choose the right dpi setting to suit your needs.
Hope this helps somebody else as frustrated as I was.

My brother MFC 8500 is receiving alright but everything I send out has a big black streak going down the right side of the page. Confirmation page also has big black streak.


Let me see if I got this right.

The received fax is clean but when you send one out it has a black streak on it.
Cool! So far so good.
Makes sense because for sending, the fax scans the original document and parts of the scanning area could be dirty and so on. Therefore a black streak may appear.
The same black streak would also appear when you make a copy, because the original document must also be scanned.
Logical!

However for receiving faxes, the machine uses the internal memory and the print engine only, and the same applies to printing the transaction report, which comes from inside via the print engine.
The scanner has no rol in either situation.

Now I'm lost!

I am tryn to download software to install brother mfc 8220 fax printer copier scanner pc fax machine. and having trouble getting right software and loaction for it. using windows xp


Assuming you're in the USA, go to brother-usa.com's download page. Select the Multi-function family, then your specific model in the box that appears, then your operating system. Agree to the software license, and you'll get a page of drivers & stuff. If you have a fast Internet connection, go for the complete package.
There may also be a program to uninstall the drivers. If you've been trying to connect & use the machine, start by unplugging it from the computer and run that uninstall program. Windows often tries to install an almost-good-enough driver, and the real Brother drivers don't play with that.
Then run the setup program for the driver package you downloaded. It will tell you when it's time to plug in the printer. A computer reboot may be required when it's done. The installation program will tell you.

ADF not working for TWAIN APIs


I need a little more description. Does the ADF handles the first page, or no page at all? Keep in mind that Samsung designs its own scanning application (SmartThru). Also check that the connection (parallel or USB) is correctly configured on your app.
