you can download an updaated version of the software from the above website and then try to print and it should print on a dvd.

Either that or
this an australian website and wil have all the downloads for any updated software.

check that the CD draw at the front is fully closed. Sounds daft, but many have been left ajar and caused the fault.

Ifthe draw is fully closed and you have opened and cl;osed it a couple oftimes, then there is a problem with the switch that is use to detectthe draw opening.

Check that the contact point on the printer body is intact as per image1. It is possible it may have been broken off.

Theother possibilities include the switch (located within the draw itself)is faulty, broken or not conected. In this situation you would need aservice manual to disassemble the draw and test the switch/cables.

If all else is ok, it may suggest a faulty main board in the machine.

Look for a manual at
if you intend to dimantle the machine

Unable init. 50 on my Brother DCP-J315w ...what should i do

Any failure to initialise, print, clean error report usually indicates the waste ink chamber is full and the purge count has maxed out. You can remove the waste ink chamber, clean and replace the pads and refit it but seriously time consuming and messy. You should try the purge count reset first (do google search) eg this one

If that works, you can keep using it but should clean the waste chamber. Or save the hassle and just buy a new machine :-)

If the black ink wont print, you will have to try cleaning the print head.
Press the "ink" button and select "cleaning".

You can do up to a maximum of 5 cleanings, anything more then that is a waste.

If that still doesn't work then the print head is not working properly.
You will need ot have the machine repaired or just replace it.
Given the price for repair Vs a new printer, it's better to just replace the printer.

My HP 890C printer just refuses to print.

Your ink system is clogged. There is no way to clean it out as the caustic ink has eaten away the pump.

This one will cost money, sorry. Inkjet machines periodically clean their nozzles by squirting ink through them, and in the MFC 420 that ink is collected an pumped into big plastic box filled with thick, felt pads. The machine counts how much ink has been squirted into there, and at a certain count refuses to clean it's nozzles (or print) anymore. You need to replace the "Ink Absorber Box," which is only maybe $15, but getting the machine torn down to that point will require a technician. Find your nearest Brother service Center on
