Select Twain option or usb .If still you are not able to scan then open my computer if your scanner driver installed then you can see in my computer scanner wizard then open it and scan your new articles.
If your scanner driver is not installed then you need to install scanner driver for that if you do not have disk then download driver from scanner manufacturer sites.
Then install.
Make sure your usb cable is working fine try with another usb cable.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My brother DCP-J140W won't scan. It keeps saying check connection but it is printing okay. Please help!


How is the all-in-one connected to your computer? The problem usually means that you do not have bi-directional communication between the printer and the computer.

If it is connected to your wireless network, did you ensure that the firewall allows the communication? (Some firewalls will automatically add the correct ports to the allowed list during the install of the full software.) For other firewall software or the less-complete install of the software drivers, you need to make sure that the port, 54925 , are allowed to access your computer for inbound and outbound network data. If adding that port is insufficient to allow scans to have bi-directional communication with the printer, also add port 137 (inbound and outbound). Since this step depends on your firewall, please add a comment with the firewall software on your computer. This is in the note in the Scanning section of the Brother Software User's manual for the DCP-J140W on page 35. This manual is available here: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc002923/dcp140w_use_soft.pdf . An example of setting the Firewall rules for the Windows Firewall is shown starting on page 85 of the manual.

If your computer is connected to the printer via a USB cable, try a different (possibly shorter 6' or less) USB cable or a different port. If you have the printer connected to a USB hub, skip the hub and directly connect to the computer. Check if other devices work at the USB ports. Sometimes ports do fail; either they can't maintain the needed voltage or they don't keep the cable and pins properly aligned.

I hope this helps.

(I have seen the communication issues with stand-alone scanners as well. I saved a perfectly good scanner from the trash when the user failed to check if the scanner worked with other ports.)

Can i connect usb port to printer port for network printing


No. The USB port on your cable modem is intended to be used only for connecting a pc to the network. Sorry for the bad news.
For network printing you can use a dedicated print server like Edimax ps-1206u, a great device that make even old printers to get on the network via USB and Ethernet ports it haves

I am attempting to scan a document with my X4650 without success. The copy function works with no problems. I have used the scan function to my computer on numerous previous occassions without problems.


How is your printer connected to your computer, wireless or hardwired with a USB cable? If wireless, check the status of the WiFi light on the printer (green = connected to a network, orange = not connected to a network). Try to turn off/on your printer. Doing this usually fixes minor communication issues. This article in the Lexmark website might also help resolve your scan problem: No Communications Error When Trying to Print or Scan.

Dell a920 network problem


I will assume you have the Printer connected directly to a PC via the USB printer cable on our network.

a. Start - Run - Control - Ok
b. Open 'Printers and Faxes"
c. Open "Dell A920"
d. Print "Test Page" to assure the printer is working and connected.
e. With the "Dell A920" properties open - find the tab for Sharing.
f. Now select Share the Printer and name it.

At each Workstation you will need do steps a-b, and add the printer. Select browse network when adding the printer and find the Workstation with the shared printer.

If your Firewall on each Workstation is blocking "Print and File Share" you will need to change the settings to allow this procedure through.

Here is a link that may help further.

Scanning problem


This seems like you haven't installed the toolbox correct, please send more info.
Have you printer connected by usb cable or in a network(scanning doesn't work on a wireless)?
If on a network, use web browser and through EWS on printer see for network tab and SNMP enable read/write, print public in the 4 fields choose apply. Download fix scan utility from HP web and install. Restart the pc and set up the scan in toolbox and try scan again.

Scan not scan to pc or email


Deifinetly. Scanning only works through the USB cable. Make sure you buy a good quality one. And do not exceed 10 ft length without using a USB active repeater extension cable.
