Question about HP Fax Machines

1 Answer

I continually get a "scanner failure" message on my display. Obviously, turning off and restarting the machine does nothing (as if this were ever any kind of solution), in fact, replacing the mother board in the machine did nothing... same message, same problem, same issue.... $ and time down the drain replacing the board. Borderline on being more practical to toss the POS out in the trash. Is there a quick, inexpensinve fix??

After I replaced toner, it continues to process "check toner". And now it says "toner is low" with the new cartridge intstalled.


Try turning it off and unplugging the fax machine. If you are receiving this error message on your pc, then it should be unplugged and restarted too.

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!

Scanner locked message on display. Will not copy


Check if the transit lock may have engaged due to movement. These locks prevent the scanner from moving while moving the devices during shipping. They sometimes engage by themselves.

The scanner is the problem, the scanner is the real bright light that comes on to scan the orginal document. Does your Scanner lamp come on? mite be burned out? stating scanner failure, doses your scanner move when it scannes the document? Motor or cicruit board that control scanner mite be bad, check the scanner "Home " position sensor maybe the scanner board and main board don't know where the scanner is phyiscal when it goes thur its routine.

If it is an HP machine, the scanner system has gone bad. This is a known issue by HP.

Unless it is under warranty, it is uneconomical to repair.
