Brother mfc3240c - paper doesn't load due to ink spill
I was told that, due to ink spilling when I moved the machine to take it to a repair center, the paper won't load because it's sticky inside. The person who repairs them said that it's very difficult to clean, he's tried and may have to try some more but isn't sure he can repair it.

There is no option for that but you can try this: Tell the person who repairs your printer to clean your machine with cami cal or any liquid after deassembling it. after that reassemble it.
I think this will help you.

I just had this error message appear on my computer screen and the 6A00 on my MP830 printer at the same time. I heard this error mean a few things (paper jam, ink carriage stuck), though not sure what it does actually mean. I moved the carriage back-and-forth, blasted compressed air and checked for paper jams. When nothing worked, I looked inside and saw a lot of spilled ink, I'm guessing from not using genuine Canon ink. I blotted the inside with paper towels (use gloves!!),especially the far right, and took out the ink cartridges and blotted the carriage. I replaced everything, powered the printer off and on, and it worked fine. I would suggest first to slide the carriage back-and-forth and look for paper jams before cleaning the ink. Hope this works for you.
That's usually a bad toner cartridge that dumps too much toner per print. Buying a new toner cartridge should fix it. You may need to wipe up a little spilled toner inside. Just use a dry cloth, and be very careful around the little black levers that stick up to detect the paper.
There are other manufacturers who sell toner for these, but some of them have toner inside that's so hard to stir, it breaks the gear in the machine. That makes a very expensive repair for the little money you save on generic toner.
Sounds like you may have a small obstruction in the scanner feed. This would inhibit making copies and sending faxes. Lift this section up slightly to inspect for small pieces of paper or dust. Blowing it out with compressed air would also be a good idea.
The machine needs to be disassembled and cleaned. Evidently, some ink or toner spilled onto the drum or the paper loading mechanism. After putting it back together, realign the heads and do a test print. It should be good as new.
Probably not a self repair. It most likely is the membrame under the actual button. Any liquids spilled on it? If liquid spilled it may dry out, and it may not. Check with the repair people about the cost of the repair and the price of the control panel before agreeing to a visit.
unfortanatly error 41 means that the printer head needs to be replaced. Got this from the horses mouth. I called the internnational tele # at 1-800-284-4329 and they told me you would need to take in the machine to have this repaired. You can look in your book for a # to find a servicer or go to http://www.brother.com Good Luck
