Question about Brother MFC-465CN InkJet Printer

MFC-J435w when trying to print I get error 5A Help?????

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...

SOURCE: I have a brother DCP-135c printer. the magenta ink not printing

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.

Thanks

Unable to Int. 5a


This is a paper jam/sensor error. look for any foreign object in the paper path or printhead area. even a small piece of paper. Try blowing (not with a compressor blower!) all through the internal areas of the printer to dislodge dirt, dust or other contamination from sensors.

After fixing a paper jam my printer started printing blank pages... What do I do?


Come on, none of these solutions are helpful. She obviously got the paper jam fixed and didn't need advice about that. It prints a blank page not Black doesn't print right. And a damned spam post linking a commercial site. I'm having the same problem and this is no help.

This printer keeps displaying 'paper jam' every time it loads a sheet of paper to print. There is no paper jam & I have rebooted it many times to no avail.


One of the reasons why such error flashes is because the paper or media your are using might not be suitable for the printer. Always check on your paper preference before printing.

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!
