Unable to clean can you help


The message "Unable to Clean" will appear on the display if there is a mechanical malfunction of the Brother machine OR if a foreign object, such as a paper clip or ripped piece of paper, is stuck in the machine. Check the machine for any foreign objects by following the steps listed below:

 

1. Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover until it locks into place.

 

2. Look inside the Brother machine and remove any foreign objects.

 

3. Close the scanner cover by lifting it slightly to release the lock, gently push the scanner cover support located in the back of the unit and then close the scanner cover.

 

If the message Please Wait - Unable to Clean continues to appear on the display the machine will need to be reset. To reset the machine, unplug it from the power outlet for several seconds and then plug it back in. If the date and time appear on the LCD, then the problem is resolved.

 

If the message continues to appear on the display your machine is within warranty, you can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center (ASC) in your area by clicking on the link below:

http://www.brother-usa.com/service/default.aspx or contact Brother Customer Service by calling 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Hello, I have a Brother Fax 560 (Plain Paper Fax). I am having difficulty receiving faxes. It is not transmitting on the receiving end. What is the problem?


Hi Despite the increase in texting, email, Facebook and Twitter, we still hang on to our fax machines. They are perfect for sending copies of original documents despite document jams, buying ink or special paper, maintaining a phone line--we love 'em. Basic problems like paper misfeeds can be troubleshooted through the use of some basic steps.
Check the Message
  • Check the messages on the display of your Brother fax machinemag-glass_10x10.gif. The messages will be pretty self-explanatory such as "Insert Doc, Again" or "Please Supply Paper." "Insert Doc. Again" means that that the documents weren't placed on the feeder correctly; just follow the instructions and try again. A message like "Please Supply Paper" will simply mean you need to replenish the paper. "Memory Overflow" is probably the most cryptic. It just means that the memory capacity was exceeded and it has stopped recording. Press "Enter" to register the documents in memory and to complete the operation.
  • Misfeeds
  • Clearing an original's misfeed by pushing down on the release lever to open the front panel. Remove the failed original and close the panel. To clear recording paper that's gotten jammed in the paperfeed, open the turn guide and remove the paper. To clear paper from the transport unit, which is in the top, open the cover, remove the drum and toner. Lift the guide and remove the paper by pulling upwards. Paper can get stuck in what is called the Fixing Unit. Open the top cover. Again, remove the drum and toner. Open the Fixing Unit cover and remove the paper by pulling it back.

    Clean Unable 46 how pleaes brother dcp130c


    Hello,

    The message "Unable to Clean. " will appear on the display if there is a
    mechanical malfunction of the Brother machine OR a foreign object, such as a paperclip or ripped piece of paper is stuck in the
    machine.

    First, check the machine for any foreign objects:

    1. Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the
    cover until it locks into place. Look inside the Brother machine and remove any foreign objects.

    2. Close the scanner cover by lifting it slightly to release the lock,
    gently push the scanner cover support located in the back of the unit
    and then close the scanner cover.

    3. If the error message continues to appear on the display the machine
    will need to be reset. To reset the unit unplug the Brother machine
    from the power outlet for several minutes and then plug it back in.

    If the message continues to appear on the display and your machine is
    within warranty, you can locate a Brother Authorized Service Center
    (ASC) in your area by clicking on the link below:
    http://www.brother-usa.com/service/default.aspx or contact Brother
    Customer Service by calling 1-877-Brother (1-877-276-8437) Monday
    through Friday, excluding holidays.

    Doc. Cover Open displayed


    That usually means some sensor giving you trouble.

    This is what brother recomends:

    How do I clear the message Cover Open or Please Close Cover from the display?


    The message Cover Open or Pls Close Cover may appear if the front cover
    for the drum was not closed securely. Verify the cover is closed
    securely by pressing the cover release button located in the front of
    the unit below the Output Tray Support Flap and open the front cover.
    Close the cover until it clicks into place.

    If the message continues to appear on the display verify the drum and
    toner assembly is installed correctly by following the steps listed
    below:

    1. Press the cover release button located in the front of the unit and
    open the front cover.

    2. Remove the drum unit and toner cartridge from the unit by lifting it
    up and out. Place it on a drop cloth or disposable paper to avoid
    scattering toner.

    3. Hold down the blue lock lever located on the right side of the drum
    and lift the toner cartridge out of the drum unit.

    4. Reinstall the toner cartridge into the drum unit by inserting it in
    the drum until it clicks into place

    5. Reinstall the drum unit into the unit. Make sure it is securely in
    place.

    6. Close the cover until it clicks into place


    If that doesn't fix it, I guess you will have to talk to their support people.


    Good luck!

    My Nikon Coolpix S5 has a broken lens; it son't fully close/ open. The message displayed on the screen says "Lens cover error". Is it something that can be repaired? How much would it cost to fix...


    Hi , The lens cover error is because the stepper motor in the camera is unable to open the lens cover. I have a solution posted in doc "nikon s5 s6 lens cover error repair.doc"  uploaded on site http://www.esnips.com/web/papputatiyasStuff    It will be helpfull for you. You have written that your lense is broken. In that case you can follow the procedure given in my doc to open the camera. You can replace the camera lens if broken.
    Happy debugging Mukesh

    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?
