Go to menu, network, restore factory default. The printer will restart. Then reset the WLAN per your home connection.

    This worked for my Brother LC61. Another site said it was a hardware failure and you needed to replace the PCB board. But this restart worked great!. Thank You!!

Wont print - "Unable to Init. E3"


I think I solve the issue for scanning so far. Here's what you do goto control panel -> Scanners and Cameras. Then right click into propertise, then check Specify your machine by address. It should already have the printer IP address listed in the box below. If not our can goto to your router and see the ip in the DHCP Client List .

After this I'm able to use the Control Center 3 scanning.

I think the problem was the NODE name list in the setting in my winxp pro does not match the actual NODE name the printer is using.

Unable to Init - Machine error 4f


ok please try this

Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds. This should put you in the maintenance mode menu. Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then the printer will restart, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.


All I ask is 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.
