Brother mfc 9420cn unable to scan on display


Hi Alex

I'll hazzard a guess and presume you can print and copy OK, just get the message when you press scan.... is that right? If so then please tell me how it is hooked to your pc ie network or USB and if you previously have had this brother scanning to your pc and how you are trying to scan ie to a folder or email?

I ask because I'm thinking you are getting unable to scan message due to your brother not being able to connect to your pc, not because you have a sick Bro (printing uses different software and firewalls and anti virus progams dont interfier as they can do with the scanning process)

IYour PC and MFC need to be set up to allow comunication between the two and it is different setup if it is via USB or Network (blue cable) as your machine can do both (cn = colour and network)

Easiest way is to reinstall using your brother disk that installs MFC Pro suite or you can download it from brothers web but get the full package not just the driver..

Let me know answers to my questions and if I'm guessing right or if you need more info or help setting up the scanning software. I could be guessing wrong and theres a problem with the machine but if I am then it wont copy either as scanning and copying use the same parts of the machine just different parts of your software, and this is my trade and my guesses are educated even if my spelling isnt;);)

Steve

My brother 7220 will not scan it is saying check cables? I can copy and fax , what am I missing?


Printers usually have a separate driver for scanning and printin.

You might need to install that driver into the pc where you want the scan to come out on. It usually comes out when you insert the install disk.

If you do not have the install disk, just go online to the brother printer website and type in your printer model number usually it will show you the drivers needed to install and instructions to do it.

What cable do I need to hook up my MFC-7220 fax machine so I am able to scan with it?


USB Printer cable is supplied along with printer.
If the original cable lost then you can buy a cable from any computer shop

Lost disk for Brothers MFC 7220 printer. how do i download the printer to the new computer without disk?


Hi there,

1. Go to the following link on a pc that has internet connection:
http://www.brother.com/html/download/index.htm
2. Click on the "Printers/Fax Machines/DCPs/Multi Functions" link below the region closest to you.
3. On the next page, if your asked, Select your country and preferred Language.
4. In the "Search by Model" section enter your Model No "MFC-7220" without quotes and click search.
5. Click on the search result displaying your model no MFC-7220.
5. Click on "Downloads" (top option)
6. Select you Operating System (ex. Windows7) and Language from the lists. Click Search.
7. Click on the "Information & Download" link next to your preferred download. I suggest using the "Full Driver & Software Package" download since this will probably have all the bells and whistles for the Printer included in one easy download :)
8.Click the Download button at the bottom of the next page & then Accept the terms & conditions on the next page.
9. The Download should start once you accept the t&c's
10. Once downloaded, copy the Installation File that was downloaded onto a Flash Disk for easy access on the PC where you need to install the Printer :)

Regards,
BD

Installing MFL Pro Suite


One of the easier ways to solve this problem is to visit the brother website. http://brother.ca/en/customer_care/user_manuals.asp

instead of installing the whole Software suite, you can just install the necessary drivers to print. Download them to a folder on your desktop, and then plug in the Brother printer. Click "No, not this time" on the prompt that pops up, and then choose "install from disk". You can browse to the folder with the appropriate drivers instead of searching your drives, and you should be up and running in no time.

The brother website has a great FAQ if you continue to have problems.
