Question about Brother MFC-5840CN All-In-One InkJet Printer
It says "unable to clean" and I have followed all the muser guide instructions several times over but to no avail. Any other tips or do I have to scrap it?
This is very common on Brother MFCs - they self clean excessively and when they've done a set number of self-cleans, they refuse to print and give the error message you quote.
There is a work around - you can reset the self-clean counter - but this carries a small risk the waste ink from cleaning that is normally stored insde the machine in a tank/sponge MAY leak out. I've done the work around on my Brother MFC and, so far, no leakage so if I were you I'd take a punt.
Just Google "brother mfc unable to clean" and somewhere in the results will be how to reset the counter - it's all done from the keyboard so no tools required.

Here is a tip that I wrote about the Paslode nailers and the problems that can come up with them.
I also have a link to the Paslode manuals which contain Paslode cleaning and troubleshooting guides.
If you need parts for your Paslode, there also is a link for a site that sells the Paslode nailer parts.
