Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer
My Brother Printer is giving a 5A error. It's not a paper jam, something about the print head. Try to use the built in clean function and it times out and gives the 5A error. I've read every online FAQ, & there no help there. I've cleaned the print head with a Q-tip and still 5A.... Unless anyone can suggest a fix, it looks like i'm on the market for another printer...
Buy a new one. there is no repair for print heads. and don't use refill inks.
not good for print heads

The process to get to the print head will take you approx. 1 hour. Without being trained on it, there is a high failure rate upon completion.
The Scanner assembly needs to be taken off. Harness Cables for the Scanner need to be removed.The Upper Case Assembly needs to be taken off. Printhead casing and printhead tubing calbes need to be removed, printhead mainboard needs to be removed, and then you have access to the printhead.
