Once the drivers for the printer/scanner are downloaded from Here and installed you can scan a couple of different ways.
First is to use the scanner software (ScanSoft™ PaperPort® LE for Brother) on the original cd. If it is not installed already, install the software from the disk. If you do not have an original disk, you can obtain one from Brother for a fee.
Second is to use a different method/software for scanning. Since the scanner is TWAIN compliant, you can use any software that can import from a TWAIN compliant device. Since it is common,.. you can use Microsoft Word or Publisher (Example: from Word XP - from the top menu, click on Insert - Picture - From Scanner or Camera then select your Brother 4800 from the list)
If you dont have Word or cannot obtain it, you can download and use the latest version of openOffice for free at openoffice.org Here
With either method,.. you will have to make sure the drivers are installed for the printer/scanner.
If you need any further instruction, please comment on this and I will answer your questions

I've seen some of the Brother Laser printers develop problems with the thermal transfer rollers inside the back of the unit. Check to see if the rollers are intact.

My brother mfc 4800 wont copy, it keeps asking for the fax number. Please help


Your fax machine uses the same line as your phone. You will need to read your manual to decide after how many rings you want the fax machine to answer. Generally should be after your answering machine. Your fax number will be your telephone number.Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

The scan comes out as a solid black image both in the preview and in the actual scan.


This is a preview from a related model, you must set the profile to photo and the color format of your reference. Hope this helps.

If you can wait unti Windows 7 comes out, I think you will be surprised with the amount of drivers the operating system will be equipped with. I was one of the Beta testers for the system and there are thousands of driver files, so hopefully they will cover the playing field.

My Brother mfc 4800 after changing the drum and toner prints so light that it is almost unusable


Return both and get a fresh batch. You could have gotten a bad drum or toner. But first take out the toner and get her a good shake just to loosen it up if there are any clumps or jams
