This could also be happen when a lighting strike has caused a short ciruict.  The solution is the same as mentioned in the link above.

    Sorry to read that you just have got the mfc. I guess you have bought a 2nd hand machine.

    If you are not very common with tools and you may have not the skills and mood to replace the mainboard by opening the machine and fix it by yourself, you should buy a new one.

    You need another 2.nd hand mfc 5840 to get the spare part (printer main circuit board).

    The spare part as an original brand new one will cost you nearly the same as a brand new mfc 5860cn which is the new modell.

    BTW: You may get your money back by giving it back to the seller. Give it a try!

I replaced ink in my printer (mfc-830cln). but still can`t print .a message keeps coming on screen with demonstrations.


Make sure all the cartridges, do not have the strip over the hole, where the ink comes out.

Shut if off, for awhile, then turn it back on about 15 minutes. See if that works.

Will not print shows power on but when you try to shut it down by the power off it would not shut down. unpluged it and now there is nothing happen. when this first happen I let it sit for about three...


Let me guess: your mfc is about 2.5 years old.
Had a lot of mfc which wont power on because of a bad capacitor.
Thanks to saving policies of brother! Cheap materials which wont last more than 3 years.
This cant be fixed. What you can try is to buy a 2nd hand mfc 5440cn or a 5840cn with a bad printhead and change the main pcb.
