Question about Brother MFC-230c Printer

1 Answer

I have a Brother MFC-230c printer that did not come with a printer cable. It says that it uses a USB cable. It looks like I will need a cable that has a USB on both ends in order to plug into my Macintosh. I've never seen one like this. Is this the kind of cable that I need? Thanks!

Yes, you just need a standard usb printer cable. The mac will see the printer when its plugged in.
Good luck.

SeeTroubleschooting and Routine Maintenace chapter in user's quite.see clean unable 51 to MFC-230C


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
"Unable 51" is most likely a print head issue. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. To attempt to resolve it, do the following:

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mix of hot water and isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now


Your problem will be solved.

Brother MFC-230c with error message Clean unable 4F What do I need to do to correct?


4F message indicates that the printhead is RIP, you will need to replace it to make it work again. Before you replace it, you may want to try this, see if it will remove the clean unable error message: 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.

How to connect my brother mfc-8460N scanner can't


You will need to use a cable to use the scanner.

Either a USB cable to connect directly to computer or an ethernet cable directly to router, then you will need to install the driver software.

My brother mfc-230c keeps saying "paper jam" and there is no paper jammed in the printer


this is an error that could get stuck in the memory, try removing the paper tray then unplugging and replugging the printer then when it's warmed up replace the tray.

if problem persists you may have a broken sensor
