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.

I called Brother technical support and they walked me through the configuration and device settings.
Can do it fine now.

Run the Brother Control Center. Click Device settings. Click where it says Inklevel.
A simpler way is Start-->All Programs-->Brother--> ...-->Status Monitor.
An icon will lodge itself on the tray (a printer). When icon is clicked on, the inklevels will show.
Hope it helps.

Rule out the software solution: is the document being printed of the same size of the paper in the tray? If not, you'll get a spurious tray error every time you print and then e.g. someone else prints another document with a different format. See Control Panel > Printers > Properties > Tray for this.
Then the hardware/firmware options: there could be either some dust or grit in the tray sensor, so that it doesn't "feel" the tray until it gets nudged, or the chassis (or maybe the tray) got slightly deformed and no longer properly activates the sensor. This is a white dot inside the tray slot on the bottom upper left; try blowing some compressed air on it. A McGyver solution to a warped chassis can be to apply adhesive tape on the facing part, so that it is thickened and improves contact with the sensor. Not really recommended of course, and the tape is bound to come off or wear out, and maybe jam the sensor even worse, sooner or later.
A replacement tray kit may cost anywhere from US$ 150 to US$ 300 depending on source.
Another possibility is that the tray counter has reached end-of-life. Press # 72 and check whether the page count is 288,888; in this case there's a firmware problem and I am not sure of the solution (it's known as the "Brother 288,888 page count problem"). This is unlikely - I don't know that firmware ever got in the 9440. But checking costs little.
I quote the reset procedure for end-of-life reset -- use wisely.
This function is provided for service personnel in order to reset the counter of each periodical replacement part and count the number of replacement times when replacing the periodical replacement parts.
Press 3 and 9 at the same time in the ready status on power on.
The “Reset Menu” will appear on the LCD. Choose applicable periodical replacement part with the arrows. Accept with OK. Press 1 to reset the counter, or 2 to quit without saving. STOP to exit menu.
WARNING: using the machine with an end-of-life'd component may damage the machine, not only that component.
Hope some of this helps. Let me know how it goes...
