Question about Brother MFC Office Equipment & Supplies
I have a Brother MFC-J6710DW and it\'s been working fine for a couple years. The other day I was scanning some documents when I noticed the scans started coming out "BLACK". Just a completely black square. I was still able to copy at that time. Now the scanner bar is totally stuck on the left hand side and won\'t come out. When I turn it on I get "unable to INIT.AF" See Troubleshooting in User Guide. (Yeah right...) I already messed with the guts and pulled off the inside cover, pulled the plugs on some of the connectors, so far I figured out the white connect, (not red or blue) is the one that powers the green bar scanner.
To me it looks like the machine thinks the scan bar is over further than it is, because when you start the machine, it moves about 1/2" to the right, then returns left and makes a nasty grinding holy noise. Like grinding gears and melting wire.
So do I toss this and write off another 300 bucks for a new one or tinker? Any ideas? My only thought is tear into the light bar area and move it manually and hope it re-calibrates...
Check the continuty in scanner cable to cis unit and check the continuity 2ends off scanner cable.
