Question about Brother MFC 420CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

3 Answers

Printer is printing code from webpages I am trying to print

When printing with my Brother MFC 420 CN it has recently starting printing strings and strings of code from the webpage I am trying to print - not the page itself with pictures and words, but just string of stuff. It's very small print. We have unplugged the unit and left it off for about 10 minutes and that worked the first time. It will not work now. We also recently switched to a Comcast cable connection, but it was fine for the first 3 weeks. Help! and THANKS!

    When printing from the internet, by selecting file, print, I get codes with the selection of print that I selected. Such as & ampersam, , table height =370, etc.



    I have a Dell 720 printer

    I haven't tried anything to solve the problem

At the brother site. Click Product Support Then Your language, which for me was US English. Then click MFC then scroll down about 2/3rds the page you will find the MFC 420 CN Click that, than click downloads. The drivers , utilities and firmware for the MFC are all there.

Brother mfc 420 cn


if you have an error 41 the machine wont print any more due to a short circuit in the print head.

plz check error message.

anyway, if you have received error 41 you need a new printhead or better (because its cheaper) a new mfc.

sorry!

Brother mfc 420 cn does not print red color


do you use generic ink? If yes, the generic ink might have clogged the ph (valve stucks inside because of lack of additives!).

Anyway, do this:
(use near full level ink carts!)
make sure carts are placed well and are secured.
Press menue then start bk copy then fortimes arrow up. machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink in tubes and ph and do some cleaning cycles. when finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. ,achine runs a power purge. when fisihed press 9 then 9 to leave the mode. press ink etc. to run a quality test print.
If you still cant see any magenta, the ph is defective and needs replacing!

Paul,

did you had a paperjam the days before?

The encoder strip which gives the print head the position is out of position. It has to be fixed into the ph.

Read my post here (same issue and same procedure):
