SOURCE: My brother printer is saying 'Unable to Init.'

This error message is sometimes due to foreign material under the printhead path or underneath where the printhead stops or parks.

Unplug the unit. Open the cover. Use a flashlight if necessary and carefully inspect the area underneath the printhead path. If the printhead is stopped or parked, gently move it enough to look at the area underneath. Common items are little bits of paper, staples, paperclips, push pins etc. Remove any foreign material.

Close cover. Plug in the machine.

Can anyone tell me why my Brother MFC-J630w wont turn on. I was using it earlier. When I unplug it & plug it back in, the light doesn't come on. It just makes a ringing sound.


1. Unplug the power code then plug it in again. Do this where it plugs into the wall and also do it where the cord plugs into the printer.
2. If the printer is plugged into a power strip, switch to off then to On.
3. If nothing else is plugged into the same wall outlet or power strip, plug in a lamp, for example, to see if it works. If not, the circuit breaker for the wall outlet probably needs to be reset. Circuit breakers are in the main electrical panel/box for your house. There should be one that is moved to the left. Push all the way to left and then push to right firmly until it makes a loud CLICK.

This is the full software and driver setup for Vista 32 bit if you have 64bit you will have to change the OS selection on the Brother.com site.But This is the software you want, just unplug the printers USB cable until the setup asks for it or completes first.

Brother MFC 5840 Printing


That might be because of generic ink!
This generic ink destroys the nozzels due to a chemical reaction!

If you re lucky you will have good results when useing original brother ink carts.

Run the cleaning procedure twice after you have inserted the original carts!
