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.

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.

  2. Slowly close the cover again. c2600_close_cover_d.jpg This action will move the lever shown below and clean the sensor.

  3. Open and close the cover several times. Once the front cover is left closed the printer will start to calibrate.
Once complete, the error should no longer appear and the printer should resume normal operation.

Note: If the error message is still apparent after following the steps above, contact Epson for further advice.

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..

Malfunction code C00 71


These codes are generally related to the toner motor, if you have changed the toner lately.Check the install of the toner cartridge, remove it and reinstall it, close up the machine and try again.

Error mesage


No solution, but I have the same problem. THe printer starts up fine, I hear no grinding noises or other "funny" nioses, and then displays no error message... UNTIL I ask it to print. Then I get a message that says, "Pls (please) Open Cover".

I open the cover and it says "Please Close Cover".

I close the cover and it says, "Please Open Cover"

and this happens forever!

Does anyone have any ideas? Can anyone help me?
