Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

MFC-240c I had a win32.nuj worm, somehow. Before the worm, my printer worked fine. Then, I tried to scan something and it didn't recognize the scanner. It printed but didn't scan when connected to the pc. So I uninstalled the "Control Center3" software and then tried to reinstall it. My virus software kept reporting the Nuj worm when I tried to load one of the exe. files from the mfc operating software, so the software kept crashing. I was later able to delete the worm, and now the software appears to install, but all I can do now is print. I can't scan or copy. I can't seem to find a twain driver and, though it goes through the motions of reinstalling the drivers for the MFC software, I still can't get it to scan. Do you have any idea what might be wrong? I am running Windows Professional (32) on a Dell Latitude laptop. Thanks!

Remove all the software. Run the worm cleaner software again Restart the computer Ensure you are off line and the Anitvirus program is disabled. Reinstall the software and follow the instruction exactly. Worms don't eat printers

When i try to scan a document i get a message telling me to place the doc in a certain way.


I'm not familiar with this type op multifunctional, but from what I know is that the software might suspect a certain size of document. When the document you need to scan is smaller or somehow in another size, it is not recognizing the document. See if there is an option in the software for custom document sizes.

Scanner mechanism stuck, making loud clicking sound


I've just got this problem after a powercut, whilst it was not being used but on. If you have only had it a few months send it in warranty.
Think I will have to take this apart and see if the scanner cable/ribbon/drive belt is caught on something or been stretched too much and can be replaced at all.
Its like at one end its caught and wont move the scanning head being stuck somehow, caught on something (doubtful tho').

Have you tried AVG antivirus webpage? They have a free version of their software, 100% usable at :

http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11014801

Per their website, there is the following info on your worm:
The first version of this virus which is recognized by AVG as Downadup (alternativelly I-Worm.Generic) has been detected at the end of November / begining of December, 2008. Currently there are over 300 unique versions of this virus. AVG detects and protects against all known variants of the worm.
Hope it takes care of it. If not let me know and I'll help you with fixing it so AVG does its job.

I can't get my scanner to work it says try starting scan from put


First you have to load the scanner (twain driver). Then load the scanning software. Then plug the printer/scanner into the usb port on the pc. The pc should then recognize the scanner. You might have to turn your pc off then on again to recognize the scanner. Then try to open the scanning software on your pc and put the document on the scanning glass and press the aquire/scan button on the software. Hopefully, that should work.

Try and scan something again, but with the lid up just a little. I am betting that the light for the scanner is not working. Call Canon to find out if your unit is still under Warrany if that is the case. They will be help you fix it, or replace the scanner, depending on the Manufacture's warranty policy.
