Question about Brother MFC-3220C Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

Wont shut down

I tried to copy a document. No copy came out. I tried to shut it down. Now it just says "Shutting down after copy job complete". Cannot shut it off, cannot change to fax mode. When I left it unplugged overnight, the same message came back on as soon as I pluged it in.

    Didn't make my self clear. Paper is not stuck. It didn't copy at all. Basically nothing happened. No matter what button I push or if I unplug it the only thing that happens is it telle me shutting down after jobs complete.

    Correct. Nothing printed from the copy job.

Well, if STOP/EXIT does not work, and niether the Cancel Document in windows, then you'd maybe have to get the paper out by yourself. unplug your printer, adn then open up where the paper goes out, now slightly push it towards you, and then plug it in, and keep doing the pushing. Tell me if it works. remember to do it not in a hard way, just soft. Good luck.

    So, it does not print, you mean? the job is stuck?

The only thing I can find in the manual (link below) is to press "STOP/EXIT" to cancel the job. There is a help page on the Brother site below:

Not able to print, keep saying 1 document on pending. I have deleted everything and still no able to print. scanner, copier and fax is working normally.

Your document is stuck in the printer queue. Usually you can fix this by shutting down the printer completely and disconnecting the power connection then starting over. Depending upon your computer and the software you are using it may be possible to have the computer empty the queue

The computer when you turn iot on it wont go to window s it says sum about a disk error

It might be that you have an operating system error. This is usually the result of not properly shutting down your computer. Some of the booting files are damaged or it needs reinstallation of new ones. Try install fresh windows copy to another drive to at least save some of your important files and documents. If the problems persist, eventho you installed fresh copy of windows, it might be that your harddisk has a problem. It might contain some bad sectors or bad blocks. In this case you better consult a qualified and competent technician to properly diagnose the problem and save some of your important documents. My best advise is to go to the brand service center for check up, if it is under warranty (within 1 year from purchase) then you will pay nothing. I just hope my info could help u.

When a document is copied the copy document comes out larger than the original, but the settings for reduce and enlarge is set at 100%.

sometimes the setting stays in the memory. Try shutting off the copier completely, let it rest for 3 seconds and then try again clear all buttons.

I installed nero 8 on my xp pc as a trial, i uninstalled the program via add/remove programs - the problem i have now is my pc wont shut down completely and wont reboot, when rebooting or shutting down it...

Hi PC;
try booting up in safe mode then shutdown from there, see if you still hang on the blank blue screen.

to go to safe mode, tap F8 when your pc is booting up.

get back to me for feedback. :)

Printed an alingment test and a copy keeps on printing before I print off any work that I am trying to print

First, try shutting down your computer and restarting. This should clear the print queue, which might have become "confused". You can also turn off the printer to eliminate any stray print job that might be remaining in it's memory.
