I think error 34 is print head related. I've had the same problem with my 240c but was able to fix it. I took the printer apart to access the print head. It is rather easy to take apart so I won't post a how-to on that. I noticed that the print head was getting kind of stuck on the right side. First, I cleaned the tracts, metal and plastic parts that come with contact with the print head. Then, I lubricated these parts using WD-40. A Q-tip works well for all of this. This resulted in a smoother movement of the print head and solved the problem. I can you can or should use gear grease but I love WD-40.

I have no information on this fault. I suggest you contact the manufacturer directly with the question, but really doubt it will be something you can fix yourself.

HOW DO I un-lock the scanner on a Brother MFC 7420?


Unfortunately, the MFC-7420 doesn't have a physical lock switch. You need to turn off the all-in-one and wait for the unit to clear its memory. If the error recurs after you press the power button again, wait 30 minutes and try again. (Note: you will lose any faxes that are in memory. See the User Guide page 11-5 to save this information.) You can find the manual on the Brother support page for the MFC-7420: https://www.brother-usa.com/support/ModelInfo.aspx?R3ModelID=MFC7420 . Click on the Manuals & Documents tab. Then click on the Manuals on our Online Solution Center for the English version of the manual. The direct link to the User Guide is currently: http://download.brother.com/welcome/doc000387/ALLFB_UsaEngUsr_B.pdf .

You can also try unplugging the all-in-one for several minutes to reset the error codes. If the error persists, contact Brother if the MFC-7420 is still under warranty (1 year). If it isn't under warranty, consider replacing the unit. The repair costs may be unreasonable.

I hope this helps.

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.
