If you installed the Brother Software from the original CD, then the scanner is more than likely already installed and ready for use. To check this go to Start - Control Panel - Scanners and Cameras ans see it the scanner is listed as a device in this area. If so, test it. Let me know if this is the case and we can move on to the next step.

Printer not connected, how do I re install

If you go to the page given below, you can identify your operatign system, and click Search
Downloads MFC 7860DW Others Brother

This will take you to a page from which you can choose your needs for drivers, manuals, software etc and they will mainly be self-extracting .exe files, which when extracted may start automatically to install the relevant programme, or you may need to navigate to the folder to which the files were extracted and double click on a file like setup.exe.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

How to configure Brother DCP-7065DN to scan directly to Synology DS412+

I don't believe the DCP-7065DN allows scan to FTP. Brother's models MFC-7460DN and MFC-7860DW do provide this function. Good luck and please share your solution should you find one.

Not able to print, keep saying 1 document on pending. I have deleted everything and still no able to print. scanner, copier and fax is working normally.

Your document is stuck in the printer queue. Usually you can fix this by shutting down the printer completely and disconnecting the power connection then starting over. Depending upon your computer and the software you are using it may be possible to have the computer empty the queue
