Most multi-function scanner printer cannot scan to e-mail. They can scan and fax if it has a phone line connection.
You can scan and save the scanned doument as an image file and then send an e-mail with the image file as a file attachment.

Where to plug in the phone line for the fax


You don't plug a phone line into this printer. It's not a fax machine itself. According to the user's guide (which you can download here), "To send a fax using this printer, you need to have the printer attached to a computer that is equipped with a modem and has Microsoft Fax installed."

What this means is that the printer is just serving as the input (scanner) and output (printer) parts of a stand-alone scanner, but you need your computer to connect to the phone line. Without the computer modem and Microsoft Fax software, your printer is, well, just a printer, with scanning capability.

Sorry! Thanks for using Fixya.

MFC-490cw Color Inkjet Multi-Function Printer: how to send a fax...


Most of these will send a fax without even using the PC. Just connect a phone line, place the document in the proper position, usuallu print side up on newer models, and push the fax button, it should prompt you for the number. Once dialed,, the paper will feed into the scanner portion of the multi, and you will see it on the menu bar saying sending page 1, 2 etc, after if is done sending, it will dial and connect, yu should hear the typical noise a fax makes. then it will say fax sent or end or something similar, that's it, try sending one to a friend to make sure it's working. Now some simpler machines require you to open the scanner portion and lay the paper down in the glass manually, mine does it both ways. In that case just skip the feeding part, and dial wait for it to scan and send.

SCANNER does NOT respond.


You need to have scanning software installed as well, when you press scan a program should open on your computer to accept the scans. Check in control panel then scanners and faxes and see if the scanner is there.

I CAN`T SEND A FAX


Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

USB CABLE FOR MFC 1770


This unit cannot be used as a printer unless you purchase a separate special interface This is from the Brother manual for your product. This was written some time ago and I'm not sure that it is still available. I did a search on Brother and found that they still offer it. Whether it still in stock or not I don't know. Their price is $99.00. Add to this the price of the thermal ribbons and it does not make a very efficient printer. You can purchase the optional Multi-Function Link® package (also called ?Missing Link?). Multi-Function Link® turns your fax machine into a multi-function center, by enabling you to use your fax machine as a printer and a scanner and to use it to fax messages from Windows® applications in your computer. The Multi-Function Link® option is for Windows® 3.1x and Windows® 95/98. Multi-Function Link® is available at most Brother retailers. If you cannot find it, you can order Multi-Function Link® directly from Brother. The item number is PCI-1. Wish I had better new for you. Ed
