error 71 is a problem with the polygon motor which is in the laser unit. This error usually means that you would need the laser unit replaced.
I'd suggest calling out an engineer.

SOURCE: Brother MFC 9880 error 71

error 71 indicates problem with the laser unit motor.. 80% is the motor problem and 20% could be the LVPS board... make sure all the cover and interlock switch are close properly.. as any interlock switch which are not close properly will effect the voltage to the motor..

Print unable 71


Print Unable 71 means Polygon Mirror Failure on the Brother HL-4040, MFC-9840 and MFC-9440.
Pretty safe to say it means the same thing on the MFC-8880.

The Polygon Mirror is part of the Laser Unit, and its rpm isn't within specs.
The Laser Unit must be replaced.

My Brother MFC-8680dn keeps giving me a "Print Unable 72" error message. Any ideas how to fix?


According to Brother Solution Center:

The machine may not work properly because of the condensation inside of the machine caused by a temperature differential between the inside and the outside of the machine.
To clear the error message please follow the steps below:
  1. Keep the machine's power on and open the front cover.

  2. Leave the front cover open for 30 minutes.

  3. Close the front cover.

  4. Turn off the machine's power switch and turn it on again.

What is machine error 71 How to fix it?


Error 71 on a MFC-9600 means there is a problem with the motor inside the printer.
You can try unplugging and waiting a few minutes, then plugging back in again.
If it is still coming up with the error, if its still under warranty Brother will replace/repair it for you, otherwise you will have to pay Brother for the repair cost.

Brother MFC 7820N Toner life end with new toner


I found the following post on another site. It appears to work. If you want to reset your Brother MFC 7820N machine so you no longer have the error message: Toner End of Life, do the following:

1. Open the front cover of the 7820N, that is, the cover that allows you to pull out the toner and drum, but don't pull out the drum/toner.
2. Push the button: Options (located on the left of the control pad).
3. Type: *00 on the keypad.

The Brother MFC 7820N should be reset and the Toner End of Life message should disappear. WARNING: This may void your warranty and ultimately damage your machine if you are reusing or refilling your cartridges, but you should already know that. Hope this helps.

I GET A PLS OPEN COVER OFFLINE BUT NOTHING IS


I think the machine is telling you to look inside for a foreign object or scrap of paper:

1) Turn the machine OFF
2) Open the cover
3) Carefully inspect inside for a bit of torn paper, staple, paperclip or other such foreign object - gently clear any problem materials. Do not touch internal parts if possible. Use tweezers for small hard-to-grasp objects.
4) Close the cover, and power ON
5) If the MFC cannot reset itself, or if no foreign material is found, the machine should report an error code, for example "Machine Error XX"
6) From this code, brother support should be able to diagnose and help with your problem
