Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
Receive this message now after trying to download an update fax program from the brother online site. Worked fine before. In the download process the machine beeped several times then came up with this error. I have tried unpluging and letting it sit for a time and did get it to work once after being unpluged a day.Once I then unpluged it to move it back to my computer and the same message again. Can you help clear this code error.
