    i cleaned the encoder strip. it gave me before an error 50, and i followed you instructions. now it gives error 51, and i dont know whats the problem. please give me something more specific. thanks.

  • ssterjo Nov 09, 2007

    nothing yet. i dont think the encoder is the problem. as far as i know, the error nr. for the encoder strip is 50, mine is 51, and the encoder strip is correctly in place. thanks

  • ssterjo Nov 10, 2007

    ok, thank you. can you tell me which part is the purge cam? in a photo maybe? can i buy it? will it cost much? thanks

  • ssterjo Nov 15, 2007

    i found this on a web page:



    51
    The purge cam HP switch sticks to ON in the initialization sequence.


    what does it mean? can i repair the purge switch now? should i clean it or what? please answer asap.

  • ssterjo Nov 18, 2007

    maybe im wrong, but i dont see any broken gears or any other piece inside. however, i dismounted the purge, and all the gears fell out. can you send me a photo how the gears were, so i can remount it and try it a last time please? i just want to find the places of every part, because i dont remember. thanks

  • ssterjo Nov 18, 2007

    please tell me how to remount the purge cam in the printer. the gears and the other parts have fallen when i dismounted it, and i dont know their places. please help

  • ssterjo Nov 18, 2007

    i dont need instructions, just a photo of the working purge, so i can see how the gears were, in order to remount them. remounting them is not a problem, i just dont remember how they were.

Try stamping your feet on the printer for 5 times, carry the printer up with ur master hand and smash it against the wall for 8 times. Make sure there is crack on the scanner cover. Last step, dump the whole thing into the nearest rubbish bin..

Brother 950/980: On copy or transmit they may produce black pages. Prone to bad scanner (CCD). Brother may provide a replacement CCD at no charge to the original owner. Sometimes leaving the unit unplugged for a few hours will solve the problem temporarily.
Brother HL600 series laser printer toner will work in the laser fax & multifunction machines (part number TN100HL = TN100PPF). Drum units may be interchangeable as well (?).
Brother 1350/1550/1950: Problem: Record paper jams. Solution: Replace upper shoot. P/N UF6058001. Although there seems to be nothing causing the jam, the upper shoot gets stress marks on the ends. Replace even though it is not broken. (Thank you David Price, dyprice@earthlink.net)
Thermal Transfer Machines: Only one side of the page is printing. Caused by the printhead latch being cracked. The latch is blue in color there is one on each side of the printhead, replace both latches

You have to open the printer to fix the encoder strip which might be stained with ink (in this case it has to be replaced). Search here for error 50 (which is nearly the same issue) and see how to open the printer and to fix it.

BTW: The error codes for inkjet printers are different to the laser ones ;-) All brother inkjets useing the same carts have the same technique!

    When reinserting the encoder strip plz watch the triangle sign! You can see this arrow (triangle) on the edge of one side of the encoder strip. The arrow has to show upwards and must be positioned on the right side where the purge station is.

    Please make sure that the encoder strip is in good position within the printhead. Will post a picture later on!

    Sounds that the purge cam shift is broken. Sorry, this cant be fixed anymore. 

  • Mix-it-up
    Mix-it-up Nov 12, 2007

    You cant fix it by yourself:
    The spare part will cost more than a new dcp 130c!

    Dont waste your time and money!

    Go buy a new one or a good running 2nd hand one!
    ..and sell the defectiv one at eBay!

  • Mix-it-up
    Mix-it-up Nov 15, 2007

    you cant fix it because its a allinone built which means that the purge engine and the paper feeder are one part which are driven by changing gears (yes, its the idea of a motorcar gear). one of the part is broken. 

  • Mix-it-up
    Mix-it-up Nov 18, 2007

    Sorry. Cant give you a hand, because the print engine is a built-in-one incl. purge station and paper feeder. I dont know how to rebuilt that. 

    Techs NEVER repair one of those parts and change the whole unit when a error indicates a prob with that
    (time is money, you know).
    Sorry!

On Brother Printer, Machine error 351 indicates that there is a malfunction of laser unit. This error means that the laser beam is not being detected. Just do one thing switch off the the printer off and back on again. Still the error is showing then it means your laser safety flap got defective and your laser unit may need to be replaced.

My brother dcp 110c printer is unable to initiate and refers to routine maintenance - it does print out test sheets however and I have undertaken routine maintenance - not sure what else to do


Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on the LCD screen a "machine error" code.If this code is 40,41,49 or 4F the print head is defective.If the
error is 50 or 51 there is error in Purge unit and printer require service.If the error is 48 - defective print head cable or circuit board.If the error is 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then 'menu' one by one...
2. Press the arrow up or down to go to 'maintenance 80'.
3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to 'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value
which is Iassume the number of times the printer had cleaned.
4. Press 'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set".Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3.
After you have entered this combination, the purge numeric value will be reset to 00000.
5.Restart printer
