Question about Brother DCP-7020 All-In-One Laser Printer
I have never been able to scan. prints ok even though the brother diagnostics say 'failed'. did previously get cc031. downloaded patch from brother and now have cc027.
i have reimaged my pc so i know there is no 'residual' registry entries or 'bad' dll's. loaded drivers from scratch.
tried using cd that came with the printer and also downloaded drivers from brother. in fact i had worse problems when i used the download wizard from brother so i went back to the cd that came with the printer. i did see wqhl drivers on the brother site and i downloaded them. but i can't get them recognized when i try to install those drivers instead.
confused? i sure am.
scan button on the 7020 just says 'connecting to pc' and hangs.
papersoft module does see wia and tw devices but when i hit the scan button i get a popup that says there is an error. not much help there.
Ok I know how to fix this issue, this involves going into the registry editor, also only available in windows XP, so be careful!
Click START -> RUN and type in REGEDIT
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> BROTHER -> CONTROLCENTER -> (version number) -> (model number) -> DEVICEINFO
Look in the right hand window for ENABLEWIA, if the value is set to 0, set it to 1.
Reboot your computer, should be fixed!

I have given up on this device. i returned it and got a different machine from a different manufacturer and it installed with no problems at all.
so if someone was thinking of replying, thanks for thinking about this.
