MFC 240C - scan and fax malfunction

Respond to email: [email protected]
Newly purchased, factory refurbished.
I've attached a photo to show the result of using the scanner or fax.
The page is blank down the middle of any sheet. At least 1/3 of the page centered, is blank.
Is there a solution? or this is a dud machine?

If its newly purschased then you have a warranty so its not your problem. Just call them up and send it out. I suspect the scanner mechanism was not "refurbished" properly. Did you try any other sheets of paper?

Sorry I could not be of more help

Thanks for reading!

How to digitally sign and fax an electronic document


There are wide-spread situations when a just received contract via fax internet service is supposed to be signed and faxed back. Or there's an electronic document needed to be printed on paper, hand-signed, then scanned and sent by fax. That process is time consuming and returns users to paperwork that they are trying so hard to avoid.
Popfax is working hard to achieve that perfect paperless fax service and now it is eliminating paper from the loop by providing its users with incorporated Digital signature tool that allows capturing signature directly on the electronic document without requiring paper or ink.

How to digitally sign a fax online


The first step is to create a digital image of a signature - there are multiple ways of doing that:

Option #1. Upload signature
1. Scan signature using a scanner device or take a photo using a smartphone or tablet.
2. Save the image file in one of the following formats: JPG, PNG, GIF and max file size of 8MB.
3. Upload the saved signature file to Popfax account.

Option #2. Draw signature
The draw feature allows user to draw his signature directly in the Popfax interface.

Option #3. Type signature
User can type his name and/or surname in one of 4 available fonts and use it as signature for documents and faxes signing.

Option #4. Upload signature by email
Upload signature by sending an email with an image attached to [email protected] from the email address registered in the Popfax account. Subject and Body of the email can be empty.
Signature Editor allows to crop, rotate and adjust threshold of the created signature image.

The second step involves putting the e-signature image into the document. Also it is possible to insert the Date and as free text the company details like: name, address, contact phone number, email, etc.

The last step is sending the Signed document by fax by clicking on "Save and send by fax".

Sign faxes digitally on iPhone and iPad
With Popfax, user has one account, with one login that he can access from his tablet, smartphone, desktop and laptop, online and by email.
The fax app for iOS supports digital signature and documents editing. iPhone and iPad users can install the last 4.0.0 version of Popcompanion fax software for iOS and start to:
  • edit and sign faxes both sent from or received in Popfax account, and resend them to any fax number.
  • create signatures by drawing, taking a picture or selecting a photo with a signature from photo library; or use signatures previously saved in section "Signatures" of Popfax account.
  • create editable documents by taking a picture with camera, browsing them from photo library or from other applications by using function "Open With".
*All these functions can be used in offline mode.

Start sending, receiving, storing and signing faxes from any device.

Repair shop or agent for Mustek Scanner in Sydney area?


It might be best to contact the point where you purchased it from as it would be under warranty if newly purchased. They have no operations in Australia. If you cannot get help from the seller then you will have to contact head office in Taiwan on this email address. [email protected]

I have installed HP PHoto and Imaging Softward for ScanJet 3570c 48 bit. Everytime I try to click on icons on the scanner, my computer shows an error message that there is a problem with connecting to the...


Does the same error occur if you launch a scan from the computer? What OS do you have? Vista only has a basic driver available and does not support the scanner buttons. (You can launch the scans from a number of options: third-party software, Windows Fax and Scan (new scan), Microsoft Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera > New Scan) and Windows Photo Gallery.)

If the error occurs when you launch the scan from the computer, try a new data cable and different USB ports. Try a direct USB connection if you use a hub. Then check your USB ports and the drivers for the USB. (For Windows, look in the Device Manager. Start > Control Panel > System > Device Manager (exact directions will depend on the OS).

The HP Photo and Imaging software requires you to set the default scan destinations in the software before you can use the buttons on the scanner (for those OS/driver versions that support the feature). Always open the software and scan from the computer to see what the defaults will be. Each version of HP's imaging software set up these buttons differently; the help option is useful. Try Scan > Scan settings to find where to set the color and black & white destinations.

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your OS and whether the computer can launch a scan, I'll provide additional help if I can.

Search the forums on Vonage's website, lots of people have your problem, me included.

First, make sure you are using only a two wire phone cord to connect the fax to the adapter

Second, turn set Compatibility to "Basic (for VoIP)" under the initial setup menu.

This "should" help, but the different phone adapters respond differently to faxing.

Even though you want to attach a picture, instead of attaching a photo, try attaching a file instead. You can then select the photo. I think it is some sort of quirk in Yahoo. I had the same problem.

Need AC Power Supply Adapter for Plustek OpticFilm 7200 Scanner


I revisited the Plustek website and found a page where I could send an email to customer service describing my problem. About 24 hours later I received a reply which included an attached order form with the price and the appropriate shipping and tax filled out for the item I needed. The order form instructs one to fill out your particulars and fax the form to Plustek. I have no fax capability so, after a phone call, I was instructed to send the form as an attachment to an email to the customer rep. I received confirmation of my order so, I presume that my order is in the pipeline.

Scanning to email


Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Canon MP620) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Then just save it as a GIF or a JPEG and send it as an attachment.

Hope that helps.
