Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Sounds like it's loading but then doesn't print, "On" light flash

Had a power surge this morning, computer is fine but the hp All-in-One does not. I have disconnected power cable, plugged it into the wall socket, turned the printer off and on etc. When I turn the printer back on, it sounds like it is loading and preparing to print but it ends up making an annoying sound/motion, kind of like it is actually printing but louder. This goes on for about 3 minutes then stops, printer just shuts off. any ideas?

The Power button turns the printer on and off. It takes approximately five seconds for the printer to turn on after you press the Power button. The green light above the Power button flashes when printing is in progress. Caution! Always use the Power button on the front of the printer to turn the printer on and off. Using a power strip, surge protector, or a wallmounted switch to turn the printer on and off may cause premature printer failure

Flashing yellow light. paper does not load.


It's trying to say that the page you are trying to print is too complex.If you press the button to cintinue it may print out part of the page. Check the printer driver for print resolution settings. Change it to 300dpi and try again. Or, you could always add some extra memory to the printer. If you decide to add extra memeory, don't forget to tell the print driver it has more memory

Envision EN7410e monitor


Just fixed mine. Maybe it's a few years late. Hope you guys still have the display. It's the power supply board. I've just replaced 4 bulge capacitors near one edge of the PS. They are 2x1000uF 10V, 1x470uF 25V & 1x470 10V. I salvaged my parts from an old CRT monitor. Hey you can go green with your repairs too!

Printer won't print


I've had this 6110xi all-in-one for a few years now. Everytime I have the "no-printing" issue I need to unplug the printer, and leave it unplugged overnight. The problem magically goes away in the morning.

I've installed the printer on a separate computer while it was having a "no-printing" episode and still couldn't print there either. So it sounds like there's something funky with the printer internal cache requiring a long power-down.
