SOURCE: Brother MFC-210C Firmware Problem

I would try re-running the firmware installation if you haven't. Last time I had a firmware problem like this I left the machine unplugged for a hour or two came back and re-tried it and the machine took the upgrade fine the second time.

You cant print in ANY color when it says NO CARTRIDGE for any one color. Sucks.

SOURCE: Firmware update how to put

Even though the printer appears idle it will not take a firmware update until you erase all the voice messages from memory and clear the outgoing voice message.

Try re-seating the ink cartridge ensuring there is no debris in the internal paper path.

Change language mfc J4510DW


Nope, language does not change that easily.
I've changed my printers language, but it's a lot of work.

Here are the steps needed:

1. You need to download the Filedl32.exe (brother's tool for uploading firmware to the printer) and the brothers Maintenance mode drivers. These can be found here: http://downloadcenter.mustek.co.za/list.php?dir=Repository%2FPrinters%2FBrother%2FOther%2F

2. You need to enter maintenance mode on the printer. To do this, follow the steps below:
  • Press and hold the Home Icon on the printer's screen
  • After you see the firmware info, press and hold the last box (which is empty) until a menu appears
  • Within 3 seconds type the following *,2,8,6,4 (without commas)
  • If you did everything correct you should be in Maintenance mode
A video showing the above can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zt2FlT-qulw

3. Now you need to change language. To do this, type 74 and press set mono. In the language menu change the language from 0003 (Germany) to 0001 (USA) then press set mono again. Now the printer will set the language to English and will prompt you with Please DL Rom

4. With the printer in maintenance mode, connect it via USB to your PC in which you already have installed the Maintenance drivers. The PC should recognise the brother printer as Maintenance Brother Printer

5. Now comes the tricky part, you need to get your firmware file, which is not easy. My solution was based on this post: http://pschla.blogspot.gr/2013/08/resurrecting-brother-hl-2250dn-after.html

My issue though was finding the correct values to post to Brother, as my printer was differently. Unfortunately using SNMP didn't help as none of the parameters did show up on snmpwalk.
So I did another trick, since I also have a Mac. I did use a proxy (Charles) and run the firmware update jar file. Now initially I failed, since Brother is using SSL, which made it impossible to get the post data, but I was able to change in the updater tool the BrUpdSys.xml file and change the file URL (FileGet XML node) to something random, http://www.google.com, which allowed me to get finally the post XML data.

Using those and posting those with CURL I finally got my firmware, which I installed.

The firmware request file of mine look like this:

<REQUESTINFO>
<FIRMUPDATETOOLINFO>
<FIRMCATEGORY>MAIN</FIRMCATEGORY>
<OS>MAC</OS>
<INSPECTMODE>1</INSPECTMODE>
</FIRMUPDATETOOLINFO>
<FIRMUPDATEINFO>
<MODELINFO>
<SELIALNO>E71359M3F391200</SELIALNO>
<NAME>MFC-J4510DW</NAME>
<SPEC>0001</SPEC>
<DRIVER>Brother MFC-J4510DW</DRIVER>
<FIRMINFO>
<FIRM>
<ID>FIRM</ID>
<VERSION>M1405200717:EFAC</VERSION>
</FIRM>
</FIRMINFO>
</MODELINFO>
<DRIVERCNT>1</DRIVERCNT>
<LOGNO>2</LOGNO>
<ERRBIT />
<NEEDRESPONSE>1</NEEDRESPONSE>
</FIRMUPDATEINFO>
</REQUESTINFO>

So as you can see it's quite different than the one on the blog post.
Anyway, after posting this I got the firmware URL for the english firmware which is this: http://update-akamai.brother.co.jp/CS/LZ4228_M.djf

Note, the above is for the model MFC-J4510DW ONLY. so don't use it in another model.

Note 2: If you want to change the language to something else (not English), you'll need to change the 0003 to 000X in the printer's maintenance mode and also in the <SPEC> XML node above.

You can see the country list codes in this pdf: http://support.brother-usa.com/Virdata/Content/en-US/MFC/Technical/ServiceManual/SM_MFC_J280W_J425W_J430w_J435W_J625DW_J825DW_J835DW_EN_5063.PDF

If you scroll to 1.4.26 EEPROM Customizing (Function code 74)

6. After you have the file, just open the Filedg32.exe, locate the Brother Maintenace USB printer icon and drop it there. It will upload the firmware to the printer and the printer will reboot. After reboot your printer should have finally an English menu!

Good Luck and remember you are responsible for what you do.
To help you I have also uploaded my firmware file on dropbox, so you can use that one and skip the curl steps, if you like!

My firmware file: https://db.tt/5WvbcRyl
My request.xml file: https://db.tt/EUJ74ttI

I've also uploaded the driver and filedg32.exe files in case you can't find them anymore in the website I did provide: https://db.tt/sUgqYP53

IS THERE RESET OR CIRCUT BREAKER FOR THE BROTHER MFC-8480DN?


Yes, there is a RESTORE DEFAULT SETTING into the printing. But no circiut breaker for the bother. Go navigate to the LCD screen and it should be there in the GENERAL SETTING and choose LAN SETTING. From there choose RESTORE DEFAULT.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Tried to print using my MFC-685CW. Was told that my ink cartridge was empty. Put in a new cartridge (LC51BK). Was told that the cartridge container was now empty. What to do?


STEP 1: Verify the firmware version of your Brother machine:

 

a. Press the OK key 2 times.

 

b. Press the UP ARROW (+) key 5 times.

 

c. Press the OK key 2 times.

 

The firmware version will be displayed on the LCD.

 

- If the firmware version is 1.01 or 1.02, go to STEP 2: Update the firmware of your Brother machine.

 

- If the firmware version is 1.08 or above, go to STEP 4: Toner usage and yields.

 

 

STEP 2: Update the firmware of your Brother machine:

 

A firmware update tool is available that will allow you to update your Brother machine with the most recent version firmware by downloading updates over the Internet. The updated firmware will assist in optimizing toner usage.

 

The Brother printer driver must be installed and working properly prior to the update of the Brother machine. The firmware update tool also requires that you have Java installed on your computer. The firmware update tool will not work if Java is not installed. If you do not have Java installed or are not sure if it is installed on your computer, you may download Java from http://www.java.com.

 

To update the firmware, follow the instructions listed below:

 

DO NOT interrupt the process or turn off the machine once the update has begun. Doing so may corrupt the memory on the machine and may require the machine to be serviced in order to correct the issue.

 

1. Open an Internet web browser and go to http://welcome.solutions.brother.com

 

2. Select your country and language.

 

3. Type in the model of your machine or select it from the appropriate section (Ex: HL3070CW in the Color Printer section).

 

4. Select Downloads.

 

5. Select your OS and language for step 1 and 2 on the web site. Click the Search button.

 

6. The Firmware Update Tool will be listed at the bottom of the web page. Click Information & Download.

 

7. Click the Download button and I Accept if you accept the license agreement.

 

8. A dialog box appears with options for Run, Save, or Cancel. Select Run. You may also download the firmware update tool for later use by selecting Save.
