The purge unit is not functioning properly. it is a part of the machine that caps up your print head when not in use. it is not moving out of the way of the carrier for it to move properly.

turn on the machine, open the top cover . Unplug the machine. move the carrier to the left. Look to the right under the cover where the carrier goes back & fourth, see if any paper or fourn objict is in the area where the carrier sleeps. hope you fines somthing.

I have a Brother MFC-3240C which I use for sending, receiving faxes and photocopying. The machine displays " Unable to Print - See Troubleshooting and Maintenance in User guide" I cannot find...


If you leave it long enough it will probably give an error 41 which is the print head at fault. If so then the machine is scrap as its not worth repairing.

Unable to send & receive the Fax


Try calling your fax machine with a cell phone to see if the fax answers. If not, check that the phone wire to the fax is plugged into the LINE socket, NOT THE PHONE SOCKET on the fax machine. Next, go to the MENU on the fax.You may have to check or change one or more of the following settings by trial-and error to fix the problem. BEFORE YOU CHANGE ANY SETTING, WRITE DOWN OR PRINT OUT THE ORIGINAL SETTINGS. In the MENU, find FAX SETTINGS, FAX SET-UP, or INITIAL SETUP settings. Try changing one or more of the following: PULSE/TONE, RECEIVE MODE, SEND MODE, RING DELAY, RING TIME, OVERSEAS MODE, etc.

The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine (power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed.
If that doesnt give you the code then try going into service mode by pressin menu key then *, 2 , 8, 6, 4  super quick!! Display goes blank or Maintenence mode is displayed, if not... not quick enough, do again to you get it, then press 77 start, error should display. press 99 to exit Maintence mode, dont play with other numbers!!

a couple of the most common errors are

Error 41 needs new print head costly

error 46 waste ink full, need new waste tank

Whats yours?
