SOURCE: Can Brother MFC 5460 CN scan without the cartridges?

That's not a dumb question at all. Actually an excellent on, And I would really think you need to go to Brother.com and call customer supprt. My best guess from knowledge of past equipment experience, would be if the cartridges are ampty or out of the machine, It will lock out and not scan.

SOURCE: Not able to scan to pdf file with Brother MFC-240C

What you seem to want to do is not possible. Let me explain:
A file that has its data in the Adobe company Portable Document Format (or a pdf file) contains various objects that are described to the computer using a superset of the PostScript language, some of them can be images.

A file that comes from the scanner is first a very organized set of pixels and gets put into a more compact form by using a well known process as defined by the Joint Motion Picture Experts group. This is a roundabout way of saying that it has a format that isn't PDF.

What you CAN do:
a) open the jpeg file with a Macintosh, using the Print command from the file menu make a pdf file that has the image in it.

b) buy and install a PDF printer driver on a Windows machine, and then follow the same process as A above.

c) Use your favorite PDF creation program to make a file with the image embedded.

The small glass surface at the top of the scanner bed had some gunk on it. I scrapped it off and the line went away! Yay!

SOURCE: paper jam in brother MFC 240C

Usually small pieces of paper are jammed at the print head area. Lift up the scanner and see if you can find the paper at the print head parking area, clear the paper . If you can't find the paper, remove the scanner cables, then the scanner. You will see 2 screws at the rear and one near the USB connection. Another 3 screws towards the front will remove the front panel. Under the panel remove 4 screws and the two panel harnesses. The is a speaker harness which you must remember to attach back later (most people don't remember to put back). Lift up the top cover and you can see the whole engine. Clear any pieces of paper that might be there.

Will it be able to scan on adf


Yes, the MFC-240C can scan up to 10 pages through the automatic document feeder. Just make sure the pages you scan aren't stuck together or stapled, or they will jam.

Brother MFC-7820N Printer--vertical lines


You need to clean the scanner glass. Also known as the strip glass. It is a 1 inch wide strip of glass that runs from the front to the back. Your documents pass over this glass when they are scanned. Some of the wax crayon probably smeared off onto the glass and now when you scan the scanner sees these marks as stationary and thus records them as solid lines. Just look into the scanner section where your documents are fed in or depending on model, some are just to the left of the large original glass.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

How do i send a fax ? mfc-240c and where to insert paper.


To send a fax, you need to have a working phone line plugged into the jack on the left hand side of the printer. If you are faxing one page, place it on the scanner bed (the glass) and close the lid, then press the Fax function button, type in the phone number to fax to, and hit Start.

If you are faxing multiple pages, it is the same process, but instead of placing the paper on the scanner, you would place it in the document feeder on top of the printer, and each page would scan through individually. (Make sure none of the pages are stapled or paperclipped together.)

Solid black line down the document when scanning


are you using the autofeeder to feed your documents?
if yes, open the top cover and clean both glasses (big and small).
and take the drum out, move the blue panel to clean up your drum.
after that should be working fine.

I have a brother MFC-240C Just bought it Can you give specific directions for scanning documents which I want to e-mail to others. Claude Campbell


I use "PaperPort SE" by SoftScan. I scan a document and then click on my "Outlook" icon on the bottom of the page to email it. The software came with a scanner I bought several years ago. However, it works with my Brother MFC 240CN, also.
If you want to download the Brother MFC 420CN manual "Software Users Guide" it will tell you how to use the scanner function. The link is: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/doc/manual_index.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc420cn_us&type2=-1&flang=English&dlid= (It's the fouth one down, and is 4.3MB in size). I hope this helps.
