    it is prepaid tracfone and some how i disabled the prepaid service on it and i cant unlock the phone or sims card either one


    Here's what I did:

    1. go to www.tracfone.com
    2.click on service and support.
    3.click technical support
    4.enter your phone's serial number (you can get that by clicking on your phone's prepaid icon, then scroll down until you see serial number.
    5. Click select

    6. write down the number

    7. On the Tracfone serial number box, write your serial number.

    You'll then have to fill out a brief form (name, address, phone number, email, nature of the problem).

    8. Tracfone will send you an email with simple instructions on how to reprogram you phone. It's usually just a matter of clicking Code Entry Mode and entering the codes Tracfone tells you to.

    All in all it's pretty easy and a whole lot quicker than calling tech support on the phone.

    Hope this helps someone

    MFC 210C machine error 4F


    Hi!

    To resolve the issue you'r facing with, you need to access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

    This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the error code 4F.

    Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.


    Thanks
