Have Brother MFC-495CW, and I recently changed cartridges, and used brother brand, but keep getting unable to print 36


It's not your ink. Error 36 means either the printhead carriage is unable to travel back and forth properly, or it does, but the machine can't get the proper feedback from it. It might be an easy fix, once you get the top cover off the printer section. (Start by prying the narrow covers out of the main cover, then unplug the cables under those covers.) Often it's a small scrap of paper that got into the path of the head. If so, it's probably black with ink and hard to see, but fishing it out with tweezers should fix it.
The machine keeps track of where the head is by counting nearly-microscopic stripes in a quarter-inch strip of film that runs across the printer section. That strip should be oriented vertically and sitting in a slot in the head. If it's stretched up across the top of the head instead of down in the slot, the head can't see the stripes and panics, giving the error 36. Gently lift it and drop it into the slot. If it's smeared with ink, gently clean it with a wet cotton swab.

Check the encoder strip on the printer. (This is a clear strip running the length of the printer, above or behind the cartridge1.gif carrier.) Do the following:
1. Switch off the printer using the power button.
2. Disconnect the power cable1.gif from the back of the Lexmark5.gif X5100 / X6100 Series.
3. Leave the power cable disconnected for 30 seconds.
4. Slide the cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer by taking the top part of the belt and moving it gently to the right.
5. Take out both cartridges1.gif.
6. Place an index finger on the encoder strip on either side of the cartridge carrier.
7. On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into. Slightly push the encoder strip down and then back up1.gif to get it into the slot.
8. Lightly press the strip first to the rear and then forward, if necessary.
9. Clean the encoder strip with a dry tissue. Also clean the contacts of the printer.
10. Reconnect the power cable and switch the printer on again.
11. Perform the hardware test without cartridges first and then with both cartridges.*
12. Make a standalone copy.
13. If the copy is satisfactory, repeat the test once to confirm that the error is gone.

If that doesnt work let me know..

Where is the encoder strip on brother fax machines?


I am familiar wih some inkjet models. The encoder strip would usually be behind the ink cartridge carriage. It is a thin clear plastic strip across the length of the carriage. The ink cartridge housing glides back and forth along the encoder strip.

I just fixed this problem on a Lexmark X3350. All you have to do is feed it behind the cartridges through the grooves and hook it on one end and then on the other with a small spring. The notch with the small print in it also rests on a small metal post to make sure it doesn't go too far in either direction. It makes it a lot easier if you take apart the top to get in there. Of course this was done on a Lexmark X3350, but it should be the same principal.

Will not stop making this banging noise


This is problem when the encoder strip is out of place you need to follow these steps carefully :


To resolve this issue:
  1. Open the front cover of the printer and locate the encoder strip. This is the thin silver/clear strip that runs across the printer behind the cartridge carrier. If the encoder strip has come out, it will cause the printer to go into a carrier stall.
  2. Remove the power from the printer and slide the cartridge carrier to the middle of the printer.
  3. Place your index finger on each side of the carriage onto the encoder strip.
  4. Slightly push it down and back up to get the strip back into the slot. (On the back of the cartridge carrier, there is a small slot that the encoder strip fits into.)



NOTE ::: Please do it gently do not break the strip or it cannot be used again...
