No, you can also scan directly on the glass.

Why does my Brother mfc 420 cn shut off and turn back in the middle of scanning


Maybe the printer needs it's software updated. You could try going to the Brother web site and check on that.

How to use the scan ( Brother mfc 420cn ). Thanks!


With printer turned ON, and connected either through a USB cabe or ethernet, open the Control Center CC3. Click the SCAN button on the CC3 widow to select SCAN to Image, Scan to OCR, scan to E-mail, or scan to file. If you have not configured these options yourself, you will find the scanned documents in the user's My Pictures/ CC3/SCAN folder.So with CC3 open, the document on the glass falt bed or in the ADF, select the type of scan and press the corresponding button. A small progress window opens, etc..

I'm trying to scan about 10 papers through the adf part on the printer and it just keeps scanning the glass part, how can i get the adf to work?


when you try to scan through the adf part a message is displayed on the screen. Something like "Document loaded". Otherwise it's scanning the glass part. Maybe the sensor in adf part is bad, not responding

The link above will take you to a User's Manual for your particular All-In-One. On page 1-2 INTRODUCTION, it shows the button that needs to be pressed in order to access the Scan Mode of your MFC-420CN. Installed software that came with the model should open up when the button is pressed. If not, consult the manual on how to install the software again.

Or you may want to use existing Windows software (example: in Windows Vista, you can use Windows Fax and Scan).

Hope this helps! Give me a rating if it does, thanks!

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.
