That error means the ink absorber is full when there's no paper caught inside, you need a shop to replace it and reset the count.

Unable to print 76


Yay, the real answer. Be careful to have clean hands when touching the decoder strip or you may damage it and then you will need to replace it.

I need to clean the heads of my vcr


The best method is to open the top cover after UNPLUGGING It from the wall socket. Take a clean white paper and wrap it round your index finger and press that finger on the whole surface of the shiny drum with circular lines on it. Now keeping even pressure on the drum, rotate the drum by touching only the top part of the drum with the other hand. After rotating it a few times you will notice when you remove the paper it will have some black lines or mark.That's the dirt that prevents the picture from coming. You may have to do it a couple of time before you get the picture. Be careful not to move the paper finger or you could damage the head. You can also wet the paper with surgical spirit to clean only remember TO DO A DRY CLEANING AFTER THAT before you inset a tape for testing.

Whenever I try to print something it says "unable to print 36". Ive restarted the printer and tryed to print something and for a couple of minutes it says cleaning then a few minutes later it...


Remove the printer cartridge and check for any jams. If you don't see any large pieces of paper jammed in the printer, they may be smaller pieces so take care to notice anything small that shouldn't be there.

Place the cartridge back into the printer.

You may also want to unplug the power, wait a moment and plug it back in to clear the error and see if the issue corrects itself.

PRINTER UNABLE TO CLEAN


You can download the manual as a PDF here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/us/us/en/doc/manual_top.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc5440cn_all
Select language and search.

Usually the unable to clean message means that either the printer has a mechanical problem or some foreign object is inside the unit. Open the scanner cover and check for any foreign objects.

Then transfer any faxes in memory off the unit to a different fax machine or computer. Press Menu/Set 9, 0, 1 to check for faxes. If there are none, unplug the printer from the power source and leave it unplugged for several minutes. Then reconnect the power cord and see if the message repeats. (If you need to transfer faxes see section 11-4 (page 132) of the manual, see the above link. Unplugging the unit will lose the faxes in memory.)

I hope this helps. If the message repeats, the unit probably needs service.

The paper is stuck in the shedder and now it will not turn on/off


Try reverse, forward, reverse a few times. If thet doesn't work, unplug it, turn the shredding unit off and pick out whatever paper you can see, both top and bottom. Watch your fingers, the cutters are sharp.

Fax machine says Rec. Paper Jam


Check the paper, is it loaded correctly? Have you fanned the paper to break the production bond? Is the paper a good quality? Remove all of the paper and check inside for any foreign objects.(paper clips, staples) Reinstall paper. Mark the top sheet of paper with an x, press the copy button, does it even try to pull in the paper?
If yes, the pick up rollers are likely dirty, and need to be cleaned, remove the paper and clean the rollers with some isopropal alcohol, and a soft cloth. (available at a drug store) Retry
If it doesn't try at all, then turn machine off and unplug it for a few minutes,re connect, power up. Any change? if not machine has a feed problem that may require a Tech to look at.

Hope this is of some help.

Printer has unable to clean message


When trying to use your Brother machine you get the message "Unable to _____". The blank may be the word Change, Print, Scan or Clean and these words may vary from model to model.
This message is a general message and will appear for different reasons. It often indicates a paper jam or a mechanical issue. Complete the following to determine the possible issue.
Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover. Look inside the machine and remove any foreign objects. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the scanner cover securely.
Then with the power on, pull the plug from the wall for several minutes. The plug it in and power the unit up.
