This printer will no longer generate a .pdf file from a file scan.

It is connected to a W10 fully updated computer.

It does print documents generated on the W10 computer to which it is connected by WiFi Direct

I'm unable to understand the Brother Canadian website and the methods it suggests.

Experts, please, your suggestions for finding a solution.

Hi Gordon,
First thing I would do is download and install what Brother calls the Full Driver & Software Package. It is available at the Canadian Brother site here:

W10/32-bit

How are you trying to scan? From the MFC's control panel? From the Brother ControlCenter software? From other software, such as Nuance PaperPort or Adobe Acrobat? Regards, Joe

Thanks Joe

I'm trying to scan from the MFC's control panel.  This worked fine until recently,

I'll now try the update you suggest and report back.

Just now I used the link you sent me.

It installed the software without any signs of problems.

Then I tested it and it works!

Thank very much indeed for your solution. It really is the very best!
