The problem is in the scanner motor.To cancel the trouble status follows these steps:

STEP1 .Press MENU *,2,8,6,4
STEP2.The machine beeps for approx. one second and displays “MAINTENANCE" on the
LCD, indicating that it is placed in the initial stage of the maintenance mode, a mode in which
the machine is ready to accept entry from the keys.

STEP3.Now you are inside the simulation Press 01 to reset the trouble status.

STEP4.To exit the simulation press 99

Pressing the 9 key twice in the initial stage of the maintenance mode makes the machine
exit from the maintenance mode, restoring it to the standby state.
Pressing the Stop button after entering only one digit restores the machine to the initial
stage of the maintenance mode.

I hope that this will cancel the error but if not canceled you should call the authorized serviceman to fix your machine.

Machine error code 6A what that means?( Brother mfc 8440)


I argued on the phone with a BROTHER REP. that he should give the codes and directions to reset the machine, he refused time and time again, saying that this means physical damage to the machine an re-setting it is impossible to help, but i insisted, and it did fix the problem and the error went away.
here is what you should do, unplug for 10 sec. press and hold on the menu key while you plug it back in untill you see the screen "parameter init" press 99 and wait, this is what i did and it fixed the problem !!

Machine erro 71 new scanner moter still giving me erro 71???


sometimes people use different names for these two items, but "scanner" to me as a tech, is the assembly with the light under the glass. the error 71 points to your "laser" unit which is pretty deep inside your machine and most likely, only a tech would be able to replace it. once replaced, the code will automatically reset.
