Hi,

Did you install correct drivers for your windows 7. Please install the drivers for windows 7 specific.

http://www.bioticaindia.com/mfc7420.html

Also please check if the paper kept for scanning is aligned along the scales shown on the sides of the scanner glass.

Hope the printer/scanner should be kept in a flat level place and not tilted on any side.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

Just got a new computer w/windows 7 and now my brother mfc-8840D won't scan to pdf now? Any ideas on a solution to fix?


How to get a MFC-8840/D/DN to scan to Windows 7 over the network or by USB:

First - Download the Windows Vista Full Driver & Software Package from Brother: Brother MFC-8840DN driver download page

Install the drivers using a custom install - pick only the Network scanning drivers, unless you want the other junk - no promises on how well the other stuff works.
-------
Alternatively, if connecting the MFC-8840DN to Windows 7 by USB, download the Printer and Scanner Driver for Local Connection. It is a separate download. Install only the Scanner driver.
-------

Once the Vista scanner driver is installed, you can test by running the built-in Windows 7 Scanner Wizard. Here are instructions on how to test.

As far as conversion to PDF, that will depend on the software. I am not sure if the Control Center or Paperport softwares work on Windows 7. I have not tried those. I have found that freeware STP will works fine.
Here is a link to the STP homepage.
Here is a link to how to use STP with the Brother MFC-8840DN

When ever i try and scan a document, i get a message that sais that "the system cannot find the specified file". due to this problem i can scan anything.


Hello Jazzist91

I have the same problem with a new laptop running windows 7. Seems like something is wrong with the win 7 driver as the 7010 scans fine with my old laptop running vista. I tried activiating the microsoft scanner and using this but this also doesn't work which is why I think it must be the scanner driver.

I also tried re-installing the brother software abd faithfully followed all instructions. No joy either.

So I don't have a solution to our problem but I guess brother will eventually fix it.

Did you get anywhere with it? If so let me know

Can't address envelopes using Microsoft Word 2007 & Windows 7


Excellent question. Wish I had the answer. I have the same problem with the MFC-7440N. I hook up my old HL 1240 and it prints them fine, so I now use two printers - one for envelopes and one for normal printing. I contacted Brothers and was told that it was not the printer, but the Application. If so, then why does my old Brothers printer work? They do not have the answer.

Connection problem


If you do not have the software, then you'll need to download it from Brother's web site. The link below is specific to your printer. You'll need to choose "all" software, then choose your Operating System (ie: XP, Vista, Mac, etc), and then language, then click the 'search' button. This will bring up a complete list of all available software for that printer in that language, and for that specific operating system.

You will want to choose 'full driver & software package'.

Enjoy!

Install my mfc-7420.


Just go to the following webpage, and you can download everything you need for your printer:

http://www.brother-usa.com/downloads/Default.aspx?ProductGroupID=5&ProductID=MFC7420

This includes: Drivers, Firmware, and utilities. There is a link there just for Windows Vista if you happen to have that as your O/S. The other link covers all other versions of windows.
