Scanning problem

Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but I have a Brother MFC8460N Scanner/fax/copier. I have it set up on wifi. The scanning icon that I need to click on to run the scanner is on the top bar (to the left of the time, volume, wifi signal strength, etc.). More often then not, I go to click on this and nothing happens. Especially after restarting. It MAY work after a few days, but if I go to restart, then same thing.

I have already reinstalled the driver for the machine. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this? (I hope).
