    AS A LITTLE RESEARCH ON OTHER MODELS IS JUST TOO MUCH TO ASK





    menu * 2864 super quick!!!, machine should give error code on display, or no display models plz push menue then start b/w (blue) button then fourtimes arrow-up-button. Machine is in maintenance mode.


    What error no. does the display show up?



    LOOK UP ERROR ON OTHER POSTS


  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Nov 14, 2007

    NOT FAST ENOUGH, MENU * 2 8 6 4 THEN MACHINE DISPLAYS MAINTENCE MODE, ONCE YOU SEE MAINTENCE MODE AND YOU HAVE SEEN NO CODE THEN 82 SET.



    THIS PROCEDURE NEEDS TO BE DONE SUPER QUICK!!!

  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Nov 14, 2007

    SO YOU GET TO MAINTENCE MODE THEN PRESS 82 SET OR START

  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Nov 14, 2007

    YES CORRECT YOU NOW HAVE ERROR CODE....

  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Nov 14, 2007

    enter maintence mode and get code now for unable to print

  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Nov 14, 2007

    I do not know what you are talking about... uou need to buy and replace waste ink tank then reset counter, if you then find you have unable to print in display, then you need to entrer maintence mode menu * 2864 and then 82 set to get the error code, it is not a case of just reseting

  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Nov 14, 2007

    use new gen. brother inks!!!!! there is a difference!!! change waste tank otherwise you will end up with ink on your desk, I did not tell yopu reset counter, your risk not mine. Good luck

  • Soulvisitor
    Soulvisitor Nov 14, 2007

Unable to clean,check manual


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 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 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If number
is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.This will reset the purge count value. Then restart the printer, hopefully without the
annoying cannot clean message.

Printer still wont work...


You've printed a lot, havent you?

 

It seems that you have to reset the flush counter, too. The flushing box is the 2nd reason for an error unable to clean. This is the small softbox on the left hand side where the printhead runs acorss for before it starts printing. You dont have to change the flushing box. Its OK to do a reset only:

Call up maintanance modus. press 8 then 0 then several times start mono until FLUSH XXXXXXXXXX (where X are No.) appears. Press the reset code again. After leaving the maintanance mode your mfc should work without a problem.

 

BTW: What exactly did you do with the waistinktank? I hope you have replaced it by a new one!

In case you have cleaned with water and reinstalled it,  the tank wont take up ink anymore! The ink will flow into the machine and the sensor will give you the error code again (That could be another reason why you still have the error code!)

 

Please be careful and buy a new one as a sparepart from a service partner who can be found on the brother homepage of your country!
