Error Message: Scan Unable A6

Just bought the Brother MFC-240C and, after trying to send in the product registration using the fax feature, got the 'Scan Unable A6" error message.

The troubleshooting section of the manual says the cause might be that the machine has a mechanical problem or that there is a foreign object. It suggests that I open the scanner and remove any foreign object, then, disconnect the machine for several minutes. I tried both! There doesn't appear to be any foreign objects and unplugging the machine didn't help much.

What should I do next?

I did not. The solution is a new scanner head which is almost as much as a new machine which I bought at Costco. I'm using my old machine for printing until it wears out, the new one for copying and faxing.

Brother MFC-J825DW false paper jam error


In my case that was registration actuator leaning to the side.
I was able to find it by removing back cover, and gently moving black plastic actuator to the side (stick).
It's prety well described in Brother "SERVICE UPDATE No. F1400" that I googled.
Good luck

The fax paper can not go through, and the window turn red light said error A6


You will need to take it in for service.

Machine Error A6 is an indication of a mechanical malfunction and the unit will require servicing.

See this link on the Brother website:
