Brother HL-4040 Laser Printer -- Print Unable 6A Error

Brother HL-4040 Laser Printer -- In several attempts, I have tried to follow the instruction on the printer which tells me that the printer will automatically restart in 15 minutes (red light). When it does, what comes up is "print unable 6A". It also says to turn the printer off and back on. As I said before, there has been many attempts with no success. Please help!

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

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.

I am trying to hook a Brother HL-2140 laser printer to a dell computer. I am unable to print since I've recently hook up the new computer. I hooked everything up like how it was on the old...


Re boot the computer with ,( wired or wireless printer?), the printer cable in the USB port in the laptop/desktop, the windows version you have will ID the device and try to load a driver, or Go to printer in the start menu and ADD a PRINTER the software will search for the attached printer. OR use the software that came with the printer, load into the Dell and follow the instructions.

Print unable 6A is displaying on the printer screen of DCP-7055 3 in 1 Brother printer, Pse help me


The 6A error is a fuser problem. It is temperature related, and is not heating at all or quickly enough. Also, it can be cause from power fluctuation.

to qoute the manual

Error 6A:
Heater warming up timeout error
(heater does not reach 60C within 11secs)

Cause:
Thermistor Assy
Halogen Lamp.

Before you purchase a new one though you might want to try a reset as it sometimes clears the error if it is not physical in nature (faulty part)

As follows - Press Menu,*,2,8,6,4 (must be done inside two seconds). It should say maintenance in the display after a short delay. press 91 (to reset the error data), then 99 (to exit maintenance mode).

If the error returns after a power off and on then you will need to replace the fuser. It is user replacable via the rear cover. (should be supplied with instructions)

3b error code on display unable to print


Sorry, this is a serious error and it means the PC board is toast. On mine, it gets to 22 on the counter (I assume it's a RAM integrity check) and then the LCD turns red and says "Print Unable 3B". When I called Brother they told me I needed a new PC board, which by the way is very hard to get to (you have to disassemble everything, then take apart the printer piece by piece). The price for the PC board is around $100 plus labor, so you're talking easily $200 to fix this.

Thanks Brother for making a self-destructing Lemon of a printer, the Brother HL-4040. And thanks for telling me I was on my own and to fix it a local repair shop.

Brother HL 2140 printer very slow printing.


It sounds like you haven't completely removed the old print driver. To do so, you must take the following steps:

  1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.
  2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.
    If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Another way or removing the printer driver is this:

1. Delete the printer from control panel -> printers
2. Open Services.msc and stop and start the Print Spooler service
3. Open Print Management(Open command prompt, type in printmanagement.msc or type print management in to the start menu search box)
4. In Custom Filters -> All Drivers right click the printer driver you want to remove and select Remove Driver Package
5. Install new printer driver.

Now that you've removed the printer driver, you can go ahead and manually install the new printer driver.

To manually install you must follow the prompts carefully.
Follow the instructions in this link:
http://www.vista4beginners.com/How-to-install-local-printer

At the install the printer driver section, choose have disk and locate the printer driver that you want to be associated with this printer you are installing.

This should solve your problem.

Print Unable 20


Bad news. The laser diode responsible for printing black has up and died. You need a new Laser Unit, part number LR1461001. Brother has released a "Service Update" about this one; the instructions for replacing the laser unit run to nine pages. If you're within the 1-year warranty, it won't cost you, but it won't be printing with it today.

Bends envelopes in printing


Most laser printers have an "S" paper path. They cannot help bending paper. I would suggest you print lables instead of envelopes if you send several letters. If you only send 1, hand address the envelope. Not elegant ut it works.

Probably a fatal error. Bad Laser Unit. Try unplugging the power cord for 10 seconds.
