If you are using Windows 7, check Brother web-site. There are older Brother printer that scanning is not supported by Brother. In my case, I have MFC 5440CN. I installed Virtual XP within Windows 7 and I do my scanning in Virtual XP. Hope this helps.

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.

Unble to receive a fax


It may be a silly question but it is a common error have you checked the cable is in the line socket and has not been put into the tel socket on teh back of the fax machine as this will cause a fault.. youcan check this also by dialling the fax number and see if it rings out.. also check the rx reception mode is set to fax and not tel/fax or manual setting this is on the display it should have the date and to the right say auto or fax make sure it isnt displaying tel.. Letr me know if this helps

Do you know if the power in Dubai was 240 volts or 110 volts ?
you should also down load a new print driver for your printer and discard the other one
