Cherry electric Corp 0.1amp 125 volt sptd type switch. jaycar has them for under $4. I un-seized it with some electrical cleaning spray, fixed itshort term, no worries. Thanks Stephanos 18.
Did you use generic ink? The generic ink has the wrong ink filled in which destroys the ph! brother printers must be run with dye-ink and special additives. Those additives are always missing within the generic carts!
Do use a original brother ink cart, make sure ALL carts are full with ink, placed well and are secured! Run the following procedure afterwards:
press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow up (tel-index). machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will refresh ink within tubes and ph and do some special cleaning procedures. When finished press 7 then 6 then 3 then start bk copy. machine will run a powerpurge. When finished press 9 then 9 to leave the maintenance mode. Print a quality test print by pressing ink Management etc.
If there is no BK afterwards the ph is defenitly clogged and cant be fixed anymore!
Never a good idea to clean with any spray cleaner. The cleaner does get down in the button bar and cause corrosion and shorting along ribbon cable. Use screen wipes for computer monitors only on TV's and any type of monitors. You can remove the back of the case. And remove the button board and clean with a cue tip and alcohol along ribbon cable.
Are you using vista or xp?, download correct version of full driver and software package from brother web and reinstall after unistalling previous attemps (there is uninstall tool on brothers web as well)
Disconnect printer untill software asks to connect.
Ok. Did you install the mfl-pro suite software? If not, do so.
Afterwards there is a control centre (start/program/brother). Click photocard. now the pictures can be transferred to pc.
