Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanning to file

I recently purchased a new desktop. I have a Brother all in one printer/fax/scanner. The printer works fine on the new computer, but when I try to scan something to file, it goes through all the steps, but then seems to get stuck on "connecting to PC" and nothing further happens. Can you please tell me how I can scan a document/picture to file to use in various projects? Thank you.

Hi - I purchased a Brother MFC 7360N and hooked it up to a PC running XP Pro SP3. I have trouble with scanning - the only way to get a scan to work is to go thru the Control Panel/Camera&Scanner Wizard...


Check to see if the scanner works with the Windows built in Scan and Fax utility. If it does, then download this Twain Reset Utility http://support.visioneer.com/utilities/twain_reset.exe and reboot. Try to use the Brother scanning software after the reboot.

New computer is Windows 7 - 64 bit Printer is Brother MFC-8820D. Printer works fine - computer does not recognize the scanner feature of the MFC. Have tried both USB and LPT1 connection to the new...


I lost my network fax and scanning when I upgraded to Win 7 as Brother had no support for Win7 and this printer. Very disappointing.

However, I recently downloaded the MFC-8370DN install package from the Brother website and installed it on my Win7 64 bit Asus laptop. The installer couldn't find my MFC8820DN, but I manually entered the IP address (192.168.0.100 in my case). The install completed cleanly, after a reboot I can now start Brother Control Centre 3 and scan and fax from my 8820DN over the network. All good, no need to buy a new printer just yet...

I can't find software for Brother MFC-6800 printer for Vista....I can print only..I can't find scan, copy software for vista


The OS has a built-in driver that should automatically install when the USB cable is connected. Check Windows Update for new and optional updates if you don't see the printer appear. If you use a bi-directional parallel cable (with the computer properly set up), use the Printer Wizard and then the Add Device Wizard (IIRC). The scanner won't work over the network.

Try using one of the programs built into Windows: Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan), Paint (File > Import from Camera or Scanner > New Scan) or Photo Gallery to launch a scan. Alternatively, get a third-party software option (Paperport, for example).

Go here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us_ot/en/dlf/download_top.html?reg=us&c=us_ot&lang=en&prod=mfc6800_us to get a utility to improve the scan resolution.

I hope this helps.

(Scanner problems can often be resolved with a new data cable and a direct connection between the unit and the computer. This assumes that the scanner is unlocked (for those with a transport lock) and that the unit is properly lighting up and the scanner is moving freely.)

Got a Brother MFC210C


The scan to email function works with applications like outlook. If your email is web based like hotmail, you will need to scan to file and attach the files to your email.

Same problem. Only when i am scanning or faxing it does this.


The left side hinge may be broken, or the sensor flag where you insert documents can be broken or jammed.

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..
