You have to reconnect the scannerflatcable to the main circuit board.

Open the scanner top as when a paperjam had occured. Remove the "Z" lookinglike plastic cover near the middle running to the right side which hides the flatcable. Simply stick the flatcable into the mainboard, close the cover 
again and close the scanner top.

Scanner bar will not reset, error "unable to Init. AF"


the problem might be the connection from the mother board of the printer to the scanner maybe due to lost contact and the ribbon was broken you might just have to reconnect it or it might be broken and need replacement

Brother MFC-240C init. unable AF error message


Sure. No prob.

Open scanner cover as you would do to check for a paper jammed sheet.

Do open the plastic which runs from middle to the right side (looks like a "Z" turned clockwise). Use a small screw diver for that. beneath you will find th flat cable of the scanner. You have to reconnect the flat cable by simply sticking it into position onto the main circuit board. make sure flat cable is in good position and click the" Z  "onto the channel. Close cover then power up and do what ever you want to do with your mfc ;-)

Init unable AF


AF means that the CIS scanner is (can) not (get)in right position. This could be because of a broken scanner flat cable, or a loose flatcable or a defective pcb. Check flatcable connection at the pcb (Open scanner like changing carts, open flatcable cover with a screwdriver. Does the flatcable stick in the pcb? (There is only the flatcable without a connector ;-)) Reconnect and power up mfc again. If it doesn't help please write again here.
