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.

SOURCE: How to check ink level on brother MFC-9440CN?

Hello,
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.

SOURCE: I have a Brother MFC-9440CN Laser Printer -reinstall tray message

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...

Brother MFC 9440CN - I am getting "Document Jam"


Take the cover off of the ADF, rub clean the rollers with a damp cloth. Make sure there is no paper stuck in the area Also, check that the sensor flags are activating. just move them back and they should bounce back to normal position. Cleaning should do the trick.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Thanks, Joe

How do I set Brother 9440 MFC to print using black cartridge only?


Hello,

You can set the MFC-9440CN to print with the black toner cartridge only through the printer drivers.

If you are using Mac, this needs to be changed before you print or set a preset.

If you are using windows, follow the below steps.

1. Go to Start menu \ Control Panel \ Printers (devices and printers for windows 7)
2. Right click on the MFC-9440CN and select "printing preferences"
3. Under the "basic" tab, you will see "color mode"; simply select "mono"

Thank you,

I have a brother MFC 9440CN when I try to scan a document the error message comes up as not being connected to pc. The cable is definitly connected as the print option works fine. Can you help. Thank you.


Are you scanning from the PC, or are you scanning from the printer?

If the latter, the scanner is trying to send the document to a server software on the PC, which is probably not running; hence the "not connected" message.

Try acquiring a picture using Control Panel -> Scanners -> Acquire Image and see if it works. If it does, you must run (or reinstall) the Control Center software, and configure it as to where to store the Scan-to-File documents.

Printer / Scanner won't scan to pdf


Hello! I had this exact same issue or question, I guess you can call it. And unfortunately, the CD-ROM user guide was a lot more helpful for me than the Book guide. But anyway, to answer your question and anyone else who has this same question ...

What you need to do is locate the ControlCenter3 software on your computer for a little configuration. This automatically installs when you install the printer's complete Pro Suite drivers on your computer.

You might be able to find it somewhere on your start bar (left or right side of the start bar). It's a small blue icon with the acronyms "CC3" on it. Anyway, click to open the software. Once opened, you'll need to make some configurations so that when you scan to file, it'll be "PDF" by default.

So once you have this software open, "right-click" on the circle button that says "File" and choose the option that says "Control Center Configuration". Up pops a dialog box with two tabs - Software Button and Device Button.

Now in order to scan to pdf from your Brother MFC 9840 CDW, you simply need to change the "File Type" in the drop-down box to "PDF" under both tabs. You can optionally also change the "File Name" to a recognizable default file name of your choosing (I chose to change it to say "PDF File") and you can also set your default "Destination Folder" (otherwise your scanned PDF files will automatically be saved in your "Scan" folder). That's it! No need to mess with anything else.

Most importantly, you need to make sure that these exact same configurations are made under both the "Device Button" tab AND the "Software Button" tab as well.

Click "Okay" and now try to re-scan your document as a File. It should automatically scan it as a PDF file to your computer.

I hope this helps solve your problem if you haven't already been able to figure it out.
