MFC-9840cdw with "print unable 36. Sometimes I can reboot and get it to print a few pages, but then the error comes back. I've cleaned and checked for ink, paper,etc. everywhere, but can't resolve th

Ok, here is what I found with a bit of internet research. Print Unable 36 error stems from an issue with the High Voltage Power Supply Printed Circuit Board (HVPS PCB).

Possible issues are:

1. The tech accidently didn't properly seat the connectors when re-hooking up the cables if indeed he or she removed any in dealing with your Error Code 32. "Check the two harness connections between the transfer HVPS PCB and Registration Relay PCB, and the two ones between the Registration Relay PCB and Engine PCB. Then reconnect them." If you try this yourself, make sure the machine is unplugged and cycle the power switch to discharge any power supply capacitors. You don't want to mess around with the high voltage. Best is to take the unit back into the tech for him or her to check it out.

2. The HVPS PCB has gone bad. If the machine is still under warranty (check for your receipt), don't go any further and just call Brother customer service at 1-877-436-2665. According another user, the part was shipped overnight and a tech came out the afternoon after he called and installed the part within 2 hours.

3. The Engine PCB failure. Replace the Engine PCB assembly. See warranty service recommendation above.

Start with #1 and if that doesn't resolve the issue, move to the next steps. If under warranty, have Brother do the service. If out of warranty, you'll have to examine the costs vs. buying a new machine.

We just bought another Brother printer (an MFC-9460CDN on closeout sale via Best Buy (~$329.99 and free shipping to the house)). Love Brother machines and service. Very robust in general and fairly easy to repair. I just replaced an MFC-8840DN that is more than 10 years old, and still working, though getting worn out.

Hope this helps.

Print unable 32

This is not just a density sensor, this is a plastic cover over it that is getting stuck. There is a piece of soft rubber attached to the solenoid that is getting very sticky over time. Removing this rubber and stretching solenoid return spring corrects the issue. Search web for the service manual and follow chapter 8 to disassemble the printer correctly - takes less than 10 minutes to do it

The waistinktank has to be replaced. DO NOT only reset the code but change the waistinktank! Otherwise ink will flow into the machine and will cause serious damages!!!!!!!! See link how to do that:
