imageCLASS MF642Cdw Scanning Error


I have an ImageClass MF642cdw all-in-one printer connected wirelessly to an iMac running Ventura 13.0.1 OS. When I place my documents in the ADF, I hear the beep but the wheel on the screen turns, and then it tells me there's a scanning error. I've downloaded the latest drivers but it changes nothing. After multiple attempts, it finally pulled the documents in but only scanned about 7 of the 24. Am I missing something?

Hello Hawkman64,

If the MF642Cdw was able to scan 7 pages and then gave you an error, it would usually point to a communication issue. In this situation, you can try unplugging your wireless router for 5 seconds and then plugging it back in. once the network is back up, you can try scanning again to see if it works or if it scans more pages. If you continue to have issues, you can try moving the MF642 so it has a better connection to your wireless router.

  1. Which specific scanner error do you get and does the error appear on the computer or is it on the display of the printer?
  2. Are you able to scan from any other computers on the network and how are they connected?
