Plz disconnect machine from power and replug in again. If you still receive the 1 when "normally" powering up you might have deleted some important info within the
eeprom. This cant be fixed anymore.

Unfurtunately this error is not discribed within the service manual and I never had a defedtive mfc with that error/info.

    DO NOT ONLY RESET BUT INSTALL A NEW INK ABSORBER! Otherwise you will damage machine more seriously!

Our printer is flashing Tractor1 tear. We are not able to print nor can we get this to quit flashing. I have tried turning it off and back on still having the same issue. Help?


The "Tractor 1 Tear" message is not a error as such, this is an information message showing the printer is set to the front tractor feed (tractor 1) if you press the button directly under "Tear" the printer should move the paper to the tear possition.

If the pritner is not printing I would recomend checking the following;

  1. Ensure the printer is set to "ONLINE" press the button you should see ONLINE TRACTOR 1 TEAR on the display
  2. Ensure the printer is loaded with paper, press the button under "Tear" the printer should move the paper forward if it is loaded into Tractor 1.
  3. If you are not using Tractor 1, ensure you select the paper path you are using within the menu and move the paper selection lever.
  4. Observer the LCD display for any errors that may be seen when print jobs are sent.
  5. Try printing a menu print on the printer this will identify if the printer will print, the menu can be printed in the following way.
    -Power the printer ON holding down the button, keep the setup button held down whilst the printer initializes.
    -When the printer has finished initializing ensure the printer is OFFLINE
    -Press and release the button to enter the MENU
    -Press the button under "MENU" on the LCD display
    -Press the button under "PRINT" on the LCD display

    The printer should print a menu settings page, if this prints OK the most likely causes for the problem are;

  1. The computer system is not sending jobs to the printer (check the correct printer is selected on the computer system)
  2. Connectivity problem (check cabling, IP Addresses etc)
  3. The wrong printer driver is being used

HP P3015 suddenly printing very slowly - about a page a minute


If you unplug the cable from the printer to the PC and print the MENU MAP, does it print slow or at normal speed?
If it prints slow, try following the directions below.
If it prints at normal speed, try removing the printer from the print queue and reinstalling it. Also, download the PCL5 drivers and reinstall it.
Good Luck.

Print a MENU MAP and a CONFIG page.
You will need this info to put the settings back in the printer.
1. Turn the device off.
2. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the CHECK MARK button. Continue holding
down this button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This
might take up to 10 seconds.
3. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the ^ button
until COLD RESET is highlighted.
4. Press CHECK MARK . The device performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.
5. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set device configuration values.

COLD RESET sets ALL control panel menu items, including network settings back to factory defaults.
This is where the MENU MAP and CONFIG info come into play.

I have a Brother MFC-210. It was working well. When I moved and hooked it back up. It was printing some pages fine and then it started printing double like 3d. Started with a few words. Now the whole page...


Check the alignment. Press the key for Ink or Ink Management on the Control Panel. Select Test Print (the up/down arrows) and hit Menu/Set or Set. Select Alignment and press Menu/Set or Set. Next hit Mono (Black) Start. Look at the Alignment Sheet that prints out. Press 1 if the number 5 sample matches line 0 for both 600 and 1200 DPI samples. Press 2 and then the number for the line that matches that matches the 0 sample.
Then press Stop/Exit. Repeat this for color printing by using the Color button.

You should also check the Print Quality. (Very similar menu choices - just choose Print Quality after choosing Test Print but you only need to hit the Color button to print the test sheet.) This will initiate a cleaning cycle for any poor quality ink test pattern. You will need to respond Yes or No for the print quality and each ink (if you answered No). If you do the cleaning 5 times with problems, replace the cartridges in question.

Finally try cleaning the printhead (Press Ink or Ink Management and then 1 for cleaning) If 5 repeats do not help, contact Brother support, the print head may need to be replaced. (Unfortunately, this isn't the only reason for the problem. Once you put in a print head, it isn't returnable. It could be that the entire printer is ready for recycling.)

I hope this helps.

We are setting up new TallyGenicom LA800. However, printout has dot or period in between each characters printed. Hence, a single row info is printed on two rows. What seems to be the problem?


It would be strange for the printer to print dot between each printed character without this coming from the system.
As a check the first thing I would recomend doing would be to print a self test print on the printer, you can do this easiest by printing a menu print.
To print a menu print put the pritner OFFLINE
Press SETUP
Press the button under MENU
Press the button under PRINT.
The printer should print out its configuration page, if this has dots between each character then this defiantly means you have printer problems.
You can try defaulting the pritner back to factory settings, this is down by holding down the four buttons (1, 2, 3 & 4) under the LCD display whilst powerind the printer on.

If the menu prints OK, then there is some sort of other strange system or communication problem.
If the pritner is connected via serial, check the serial settings on the pritner also chack the pin configuration of the connector used to print to the printer.

Try printing from another system or application to identify what might be causing the problem for example an application or driver problem, perhaps try printing from a PC directly to the pritner to check the interface on the printer is OK.

Check the emulation setting on the pritner ensure this is correct.

Printer will stop printing and you have to turn it off to make it restart? What can I do to repair the problem?


It looks like a communication issue. It seems that the printer is quiting to communicate with the computer intermittently.

If the printer is on network, you may want to reset the printer IP address and reinstall the printer driver to test.

Cold reset unlocks menus that have been previously locked and sets all control panel menu items (including EIO settings) back to the factory defaults. However, it does not clear the values in the
SERVICE
NOTE: Before performing a cold reset, print a menu map and a configuration page
1. Turn the device off.
2. Turn the device on. When the memory count begins, press and hold the check button. Continue holding down the check button until all three device control-panel lights flash once and then remain on. This might take up to 10 seconds
3. After the message SELECT LANGUAGE appears on the display, press the arrow up and arrow down buttons until COLD RESET is highlighted.
4. Press the check button. The device performs a cold reset and then continues its power-on sequence.
5. Check all I/O settings and reset any customer-set device configuration values.

Print a configuration page from the Printer INformation Menu after restarting the printer. The IP address would ideally be a different one if your network is a DHCP network. If not, you will have to manually configure the IP address on the printer. You may do that by accessing the Configure Menu on the PRinter control panel.

Try configureing the printer driver to the new IP address. It should solve the issue.

If that doesnt work, you may want to download a new driver from the website and install it.

HP LaserJet 2420dn prints twice


You may have checked this already, but make sure your printer driver is not set up to print two copies per print job if it is then that's the easiest place to change settings. Or you can print out your printer's menu by doing the following: To print a menu map 1. Press (SELECT button) to open the menus. 2. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to INFORMATION, and then press (SELECT button). 3. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to PRINT MENU MAP, and then press (SELECT button) Look for anything that says "copies" and usually that will let you know what is set on the printer. To change a control-panel setting 1. Press MENU to open the menus. 2. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to the menu that you want, and then press (SELECT button). 3. Some menus might have several submenus. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to the submenu item that you want, and then press (SELECT button). 4. Use (UP button) or (DOWN button) to scroll to the setting, and then press (SELECT button). Some settings change rapidly if (UP button) or (DOWN button) is held down. An asterisk (*) appears next to the selection on the display, indicating that it is now the default. 5. Press MENU to exit the menu Good Luck.
