Question about Brother MFC 210C All-In-One InkJet Printer
Fixed the wasteinktank problem (unable to clean), put the machine back together only to be presented Unable to Print message, machine error 5B. Turned it off for an hour or so, pushed the printhead back to the right (start or dwell position), turned the machine back on. Now, it flashed Machine Error 38. What to do ??
Did you deformate the pf encoder disc when reassembling the printer? This is the round foil being installed on one of the three wheels on the left side. This might be reason for the scratching sound.
5B happens when there is no ink within the purge unit tubes. It cant do a negative pressure to purge the printhead.
Try to fix the encoder disc and put some ink onto the purge station where normally the print head is in parking position. Afterwards the print engine should work again. Have ink carts placed well. The machine will try to purge the ink and is trying to do a neg. pressure again.
In case you wont be lucky you will have to go shopping to buy a new one...
