Question about Brother MFC-640CW All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Random Beeping I have an mfc-640cw. Generally works fine but on random occassions will start a continuous monotone regular beeping noise every half a second and will carry on until either the machine is unplugged and reset or 5 minutes has passed. This occurs whether the machine is setup wirelessly or hard wired.

    Hi anaanymous



    Thanks for the reply. I have tried this a couple of times including downloading the uninstall programme from brother to ensure a total clean installation as well as cleaning up the registry with a registry cleaner to get rid of orphaned entries. Still has not resolved the problem though. It beeped again about an hour ago, I unplugged it and plugged it back in and so far it has been quiet. It's a bit of a puzzle. Thanks for your suggestion though.

Hi iankw,

Well, I think we can safely rule out software/firmware issues. Your only resolution at this point may be to get onsite technical help and thank you for the kind response

Hi, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

Brother MFC-640CW All-In-One yellow not printing


if your print head is removable (the thing your ink cartridge clips into) remove it and clean it out with asorbic alcohol on both the print face and the ink inlet area- If your yellow has been empty for a while before you bought a new cartridge, it is possible that ink has dried in the ink channels of the print head and this is almost impossible to repair and you would be better off buying a new print head- Also if you have a fairly new printer you can contact the manufacturer about your issue and they may or may not send you one for free- My KodaK AIO had the same issue and Kodak replaced the print head for free all I had to do was take the time to call them

Ink absorber pad is full


You need to replace the waste ink absorber and then reset the counter. These can be obtained from some suppliers of ink and spares etc, otherwise you will need to contact Brother in your country or take the unit to a service engineer.

Generally when these errors occur the waste ink absorber needs replacing, if not your images will start to degrade in quality and you will start to see ink splays / splodges appearing as well as random spots and ink patches. In the mean time press RESUME /CANCEL to continue printing.

Yes. There is some paper left in the very edge (mostly left hand side). Have a good look there by opening the scanner top.

Try pulling the cord from the back of the printer and re-inserting it.
