SOURCE: Brother MFC-465CN says 'Unable to Print 5A'

Hi there

Solution:
· Machine off
· Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu”button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
· Press 80
· Press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
· Press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
· Press the "stop" button.
· Press “99” to exit the maintenance mode.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: machine error code 6A what that means?( Brother mfc 8440)

I argued on the phone with a BROTHER REP. that he should give the codes and directions to reset the machine, he refused time and time again, saying that this means physical damage to the machine an re-setting it is impossible to help, but i insisted, and it did fix the problem and the error went away.
here is what you should do, unplug for 10 sec. press and hold on the menu key while you plug it back in untill you see the screen "parameter init" press 99 and wait, this is what i did and it fixed the problem !!

SOURCE: Clean unable 5A error message

Hello, the error message your printer display is as a result of your printer's purge until it had reached it counter limit and you have to reset the printer by leaving it unplugged for at least 2 hours and then boot it back up. this will flash the memory of the machine.

Thanks

Brother MFC-9440CN error 5A print unable


Error 5A unable to print is a problem with the high voltage power supply PCB, or with the engine PCB. A shop could tell you which one after some testing. Expensive repairs...

Unable to print and showing an 'unable to print 5A code


There are diffrent reasons for this error:

check, if something sticks in the machine (paper or metal clip)

The paperfeeder clutch gear is broken: check if the paper feeder works well.

The purge station has problems to do the cleaning jobs: gear broken or too much ink within the purge tubes.

Anyway, this problem is hard to handle for a novice due to so many diffrent reasons.

You should contact a service dealer and in case it is still in warranty let fix them.

Printer message: Unable to Print


5A means that the purge cam stopps abnormally when it is in use. This could be of a broken cam shaft. You have to replace the whole purge unit. This is a service job to do!
