On most printers that are manufactured today have an error chip built onto the motherboard of the printer. If your printer experiences an error. It will register it on on the chip. You will continue getting the error because it needs to be cancelled. To cancel this error follow the instructions below:
1) Turn print on
2) Unplug the printer from the power
3) Wait at least 70 seconds
4) Plug it back in
The error should be cancelled

From Brother's website:
Print Unable ##:
Turn off the printer. Wait a few seconds, then turn it on again. If this does not clear the
problem, call your dealer or a Brother Customer Service.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe Diaz

Unable to clean, error 5A. Already reset purge counter. Print head clear of any obstructions and moves properly. Unable to determine what error 5A is.


Hi Jason, 5A is usually caused by a bad maintenance unit. The purge cam gear may be broken or too much load on the maintenance unit. Either way replacing maintenance unit should solve the problem.

5A means that the purge cam stopps abnormally when it is in use. This could be of a broken cam shaft. You have to replace the whole purge unit. This is a service job to do!
