Hello,

Is this your printer as shown below?

Machine error 55 on Brother - 9f85e1a.jpg

This is an MFC 3100 and I believe you just made a typo by posting MFV 3100 as there is no such model.

As it is, it is important that I verify your model otherwise, the information I provide will be in error.

Usually, the model identification plate is on the back of the printer. This contains more detailed information as opposed to the product label viewable from the front.

Would you check the back and post back to me using the Comment Text Area Entry Box below, the model and version you have. You may see MFC 3100 V7.0 or something similar or nothing like the V data.

Thanks,
Worldvet

    Hello,

    Please include your Operating System. Such as, Windows XPSP2 or SP3, you can find this by typing from your Desktop the Windows Key + Pause key at the exact same time. The pop up that comes on screen will have the data in the top right area of the first page displayed. You will also see the amount of RAM you have onboard.

    I should add that this machine error messages are usually related to a mechanical malfunction. That mean your printer may be broken and only service will be able to fix it. But, lets not give up on this just yet.

    Thanks,

    Just to make note of this, this is the page at Brother you use to enter your product type "Multi Function" and then enter your zip code to find a service center near you.

    Normally, there is a bench fee and they will then give you a quote on costs to fix. However, this may just be a good time to search for a new printer. Please don't take this wrongly. Machines do fail and if you are under warranty by some change of luck (warranties are 1-year) you could have it servcie under warranty.

    Hello,

    From what I found and what you have probably tried already is to do what is called a "hard reset" this is simply turning off your printer. Then remove the power cable from its socket and leave this unplugged for an hour or so. This gives the printer time to drain off all power that is stored in capacitors and keeping come elements energized while in the off state. When you plug the printer back into the wall, the theory is that the unit will no longer display the error message if that error was intermittent and or a glitch.


    Here is a printer model the same as yours for sale on EBay in Like New condition without CDs Cables or Manuals

    This is just so you know the value of what you have already if it were in error free condition.

    Regards,
    Worldvet
