    Unit looks like it's in a 'normal', ready state on power up, but it is totally (i.e. 100%) unresponsive...cannot fax, copy or print. Does not matter if it's over the network or directly from device. Tried unplugging for > 1 minute then plugging back in and powering on...no change in behavior.

Unplug it for 15 seconds then plug it back in. This will do a "hard reset" and will clear the static memory there by altering the settings enough to allow for the function of the bottons. Poke the bottons with your finger on the front of the machine. Then spew a mouth full of sea water onto the top of the device. This will do a "spirtitual reset" and clear the esoteric memory there by altering the very fabric of the universe itself right there where the machine lives in the universe causeing the machine to see things your way from now on.

Unable to init. 4f in Brother MFC j615w


Sorry to say this error refers to a print head failure. It is not a user changeable part. It will need repairing by a Brother service agent and it will probably cost more than the printer is worth.

The LCD screen keep displaying "Printing" but


I have seen this so many times I thought I would post an answer on this so you can repair your Brother MFC series machine that says printing and will not function. Using this procedure will save you from having to call out a service technician. Any time your machine says "printing" and will not do anything simply turn off the power. Now hold down the red clear/stop button WHILE turning the power back on. Continue holding the clear key for a few seconds then release. Your "printing" message should be gone and your machine should be back at the ready screen.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya!

3-INCH WIDE VERTICAL LINES RUND DOWN LEFT SIDE OF FAX MACHINE


Do your incoming faxes have the same marks?
If not you might find that the scanning part of your machine has a dirty mark on the glass or that the unit has become faulty.
Try and take a copy from the machine and print from a report or any print from memory.
If you have the black lines on both then i'd suggest getting a new drum unit, if u have it only on the copy I would have a look at your scanner glass and see if there is a dirty mark on it. if not maybe call out an engineer as the scanner unit maybe faulty.
Need anymore help msg me.

Brother MFC 8860DN Toner End Life Error


Open the door where the toner goes. Press the 'back' button. Press *00. Do not respond to the query about the drum. Close the door. Other models may have to press the 'Options' button located near 'Copy'. This should work.
