AF means that the CIS scanner is (can) not (get)in right position. This could be because of a broken scanner flat cable, or a loose flatcable or a defective pcb. Check flatcable connection at the pcb (Open scanner like changing carts, open flatcable cover with a screwdriver. Does the flatcable stick in the pcb? (There is only the flatcable without a connector ;-)) Reconnect and power up mfc again. If it doesn't help please write again here.

most likely you will need to take it in for service.
the problem with the AF error indicates a bad scanner assembly or possibly a cable that needs to be reconnected.
Before replacing the flatbed unit, disconnect and reseat the CIS flat cable at the Main
PCB. This will ensure that the issue is not being caused by debris in the connector.
open up the plastic cover that goes from the back to the middle of the unit. it looks like the cover goes from top to bottom, in the middles it turns to the left. take that out with a small flat blade screwdriver, pull the cable out and put it back in.
make sure you do this when the unit is not plugged in.

There are several issues that pertain to this code, including a service update. If your printer is still under warranty – visit your local ASC, find one here, this issue is covered! First off, the Service Update, the encoder strip needs to be cleaned with a lint free cloth. The encoder strip is responsible for relaying the position of the print head to the main pcb. If the encoder strip gets dirty, many different problems can occur. The encoder strip is exposed, which allows grease, paper dust, finger prints, ink, etc. to get onto the encoder strip. (The white strip when you open the scanner cover)
If the machine still errors, the encoder strip needs to be replaced – Part Number LS4467001
If the machine still errors, replace the carriage PCB assembly – Part Number LS6543001
If the machine still errors, replace the Printhead – Part Number LK3211001
If the machine still errors, replace the Main PCB assembly – Part Number LT0284011
