    I also downloaded sp3 for Outlook 2003 and the mailto function no longer works when scanning from a Brother MFC 9840CDW all in one machine. I get the same "command line argument is not valid. Verify the switch you are using". The Brother machine does scan to another computer which does not have sp3 downloaded. Solutions?

My Brother MFC-J470DW Printer scanner will not scan to my email account


Something might have changed. Just check what is your default E-mail application and do reconfigure it or run a repair command (for Outlook for example). Reboot to make sure that the changes are applied.and, if need be, reinstall the Control Center again.
Open the scan to E-mail configuration and select the application that handles the E-mails.
If that does not work there is a workaround: Scan to pdf then send the pdf file as attachment. From your E-mail account you may also be able to insert a file acquired from the scanner.

I would like to scan a color picture and send it to my e-mail address. What are the exact steps to do this.




Type the machine ip adress on the adress bar of the machine and hit enter.
Then the machine webpage will appear



1. Click the Network Settings link, login asadmin, username is admin and password is also admin and click the Services Settings link.




2. Use the SMTP server IP addresses in the Primary andSecondary Server fields rather than the server names.


3. Verify if the mail server is using the default SMTP portof 25. If it is not, then change the Port Number to match the server. Port 587is a commonly used port if authentication is required.


4. The Reply Email Address must be a valid local emailaddress for some mail servers or messages will be discarded. If using a Reply Email Address like: noreply@whatever.comor scanner@whatever.com confirm that the email address actually exists.


5. If the server is running SSL (GMail uses SSL) for bettersecurity, check the box next to Enable SSL. Click here for instructions on how to setup scan to GMail.


6. Leave the User Name and Password blank temporarily andperform the Connection Test. A successful response will verify that the serveris really a valid SMTP mail server.

Is Canon ImageRunner iR2200 scanner working with Linux/Ubuntu?


It's pretty easy - you can do it from the HTTP interface.

You must have the jbigkit installed (check your distro's repository for jbigkit or go to http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/jbigkit/ to download a tarfile).

First, enable the HTTP interface in the copier setup. Then, at the copier:
  1. Place your document on the glass or in the ADF
  2. Push the "Mail Box" button
  3. Select a mailbox (i.e., "01")
  4. Click "Scan" on the screen
  5. Push the Start button to scan the document into the mailbox.

In your web browser:
  1. Type the IP address of the copier into the navigation bar and hit Enter
  2. Click on "Mail Box" on the left
  3. Select the mail box that you specified at the copier when you scanned the document
  4. Click on the appropriate document (if there is more than one, determine the correct one based on the date/time)
  5. For each page of the document scanned:
  1. Click the little page icon under "Size (Mono/KB)"
  2. Click "OK" in the warning box that pops up
  3. Rename the image.jbg file that is downloaded to a more appropriate name, i.e., documentname-pageX.jbg
From the command line, you can convert the file to .pbm using the command:

jbgtopbm <.jbg filename> <new .pbm filename>

from the jbigkit.

When I tell it to Scan, a window pops up and says, "Can't find the Scanner plug-in." I am sure I have it, but I just can't make it work. Any suggestions.


I suggest you first download the correct drivers and software or verify from the installation you have on your Mac that the software installed is the same version listed on the website. Having done this verification, kindly start the scanning software provided, turn on the scanner and then press scan. Sometimes, if there is a delay in the software response to a scanner's command or a delay from the scanner to a software's command then such messages show up.

When trying to scan I get "The command argument is not valid.


This is due to a file association problem with your installation of Outlook. It will affect all "mailto" links, not just ones on our sites so it is important you get it resolved.

Epson Perfection V200 Photo scanner


You have tired all the computery things seemingly
but it is work trying some more
Remove all software.- using the Epson Uninstall routine .
and just to be sure go to Programs.Epson and maually delte all you can find.
Make sure that when you re install- the computer is off line and the ant virus program is disabled.
That should sort the problem Computer wise.
When you go to operate the scanner- does it then go through the motions of Scanning but no light - is that it?
If it is - there is nothing for it but to replace ther scanner
To bad about the warranty card but if you have the sales recieipt
And purchased less than a year ago - the the seller has a responsability [UK wise any way]
But a pleading message toi Epson may surprise you too.
