    Hi, Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling the software. If it did not work there may be other issues I can help you with. If you need help feel free to get in touch. I am retired at 42 and I do this for fun so there is no charge for my help. I have 2 Deans list degrees one in computer science and one in electronic engineering so I'm pretty sure we can get this fixed for you. Anyway, Let me know if you fixed it or not. If not I'm always available.

    Did you make sure the scanning bulb is lighting during the scan. If no replace the light bar. If you reinstalled the software with the printer unplugged until you are asked to do so by the software and it still gives you scan was not successful message the optical pick up sensor in your scanner needs to be cleaned. Carefully disassemble the unit until you have clear access to the optics. Clean them very gently with real windex and use newspaper to dry it as not to leave behind any lint on the optics. If the CCD imaging unit can not see what it is scanning you will also get this message. I always make sure it is not a software problem before I suggest a physical repair. As long as you are careful and set the parts and screws don in the order you take them out a trained monkey can put it back together. Ge gentle when cleaning Charge Coupled Device imaging unit prism as it is a long thin glass piece and it will snap if you apply too much pressure. Make sure there are no streaks or particles or there will be unwanted artifacts in your scans.
    If none of these solutions work it is a circiutry problem and I am not going to type 30 pages to teach you how to troubleshoot and repair a main circuit board. If this is the case you would be better off spending the 100 bucks on a new scanner Then paying it to a repair man to fix a problem of this magnitude. Try these.

I have to Konica Minolta printers one a BizHub C220 & the other BizHub C353. All the scan to email function except for to users that have a large email account. I did setup an alias and forward the...

Hi Tim,

Can you please let me know the exact error message that you get , while you attempt to use the scan to email function?

May end users believe to scan-to-email to themselves internally, and then send it externally.
and the find it as a probably better option, as we get to preview the attachment before it goes out.

If you are using an exchange server then the exchange cannot handle the message size or attachment size, as well as when there is actually not enough space on the server probably it's full or near full.

Try setting up the email account again and then check if the problem persists, most probably this problem would not persist after a reset of the email account.

Hope this helps...:)

The scanner for my Hp officejet 4355 All-in-One printer is not working. When ever I press the Scan button it sends a message that there is no scan option. So please help.

The Scan button in this machine works only if your computer is powered on and HP solution Centre is running on it. The same is also neede to be configures in HP solution Centre options.
After successful configuration, you can scan and save directly to your computer by just pressing scan button.

Vista has issues with this printer. there is an updated driver, but if money is not a concern the best solution is to either upgrade to Windows 7 or downgrade to XP. 3rd party vendors have all but stopped patching Vista drivers since Windows 7 came out.

Brother MFC-5840CN unable to scan

From Brother Customer Service email:

You can try the following reset - it will most of the settings back to the default options.

Unplug power cord to the machine.
Press and hold down Menu.
Plug power cord back in.
Let go if menu when fax/scan/copy flash.

You may see either "maintenance" or "machine error xx" on the screen.

Type stop/exit, 9, 1.
The machine should show "param init" or similar to show that the reset is being done.

It will then go back to or machine error.

Type stop/exit, 9, 9.

This should take the machine out of maintenance mode and back to normal.

If the error is still present the machine will require an engineer to resolve the issue.
