Cannot Scan Document into my computer after doing the following: click scan; click download to computer; clicked OK; receive message Downloading Application; then receive message cannot retrieve...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.

hi msplamann,
First check your printer is it copying manually from the printer screen? to copy put a page in the scanner close it and look for a button or an option in the printer which says black or color copying and press it whithout having it connected to the laptop.if it prints then you have a problem in drivers in the laptop. Reinstall them fully not partially
hope it helps!!!!

NO CONNECTION (LAN) on Brother MFC-440CN


I had the SAME problem. I have 3 pc laptops and 1 Mac. The Mac could still print, but the pc's were hosed. I called BrotherUSA and this fixed the problem!

Go to your printer and after making sure it's connected to the network with the Ethernet cable, go to Menu > Print Reports > Network Config. This will print a page that shows your printer's IP address. We need to config that address in your Printer, Fax and Scanner settings in Control Panel.

Go to Control Panel > Printers & Faxes. Right click on your printer > Properties > Ports tab. Click Add Port and select Standard TCP/IP Port. Click New Port and click Next on the wizard. Enter the IP address of your printer in the first field (the second one will auto-fill). Click Next and Finish. Printer's done!

Right click on your PC-FAX in Printers & Faxes and Properties. Click on the ports tab and just check the box that you just created for Standard TCP/IP Port. Click OK. Fax is done!

Go back to Control Panel and select Scanners & Cameras. Right click on your printer/scanner > Properties > Network Setting tab. Select the Specify your machine by address radio button and, if it's not already in there, enter the IP address of your printer. Click OK. Scanner's done!

This will work as long as your router is running. You may need to repeat this process after a power outage or if you need to reboot your wireless router. Not too bad, though! I just wish everything was as easy as a Mac!!!

How to connect the scanner into the computer


Hi.

Are you trying to start a scan with a button on the printer / scanner?

With your pc on and the printer / scanner on, click on "my computer" if theres not an icon on your desktop you will have to click on "Start which is on the bottom left of the screen, then on either my computer or computer" You will see a list of drives but scroll down to see if there is an imaging device connected.

If you double click on the imaging device it will open up microsoft scanner and camera wizard, follow the instructions and it will scan..

I hope that helps..

Fax answer phone line


You set the machine up in the answer/fax mode, when a fax is coming in you have to press 9 on the phone to make it receive the fax if you pick up the receiver when it is a fax call.
You can also change the number of rings to answer a fax, I think the max is 7 rings.
