Tried to use the scanner and am unable to do so. Have no idea why the computer cannot find the scanner. Machine starts up fine and seems ready to go.
I removed the scanner from the hardware list, uninstalled it and then re-installed it to no avail.

Re: "Scanner not found" message
I have found a support site for your scanner that may be of some help... Please check your ports are compatible.. as far as speed and type. Have you installed the MOST up to date drivers etc? Check all cables etc.

Solution #1 is absolutely spot-on from adnanbhatti, copy the link into your browser to be able to see the photos of the printer and how to slide the print head: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000500/000065/faq000565_013.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=dcp130c_all&Cat=11
When I slid the print head over as specified, I found a little crumpled paper fragment soaked with ink. Pulled it out.... I turned on the printer, it ran a cleaning cycle automatically, and started printing just fine!
quite possible the scanner motor finnaly gave out but lets look at other things first
try connecting to another usb port on comp before that completly take out all of the scanners drivers and programs this could be a simple file corrupt
i know you tried this but sometimes putting a new driver over old driver doesnt usually change the old drivers properties this is when you completly take out all drivers and software and start from scratch for this scanner
