SOURCE: brother mfc 8440 "printing" problems

Hi
I recently had this problem - tested fuser and all sensors.
The fix is to reset the memory.
To do this, enter the Maintenance mode. Menu, * 2864
(enter the number quickly)
then type 01 ( zero one ), this will reset all memory including the user settings.
Finally type 99 to exit Maintenance mode.
The printer will restart and the error will be gone. Test out with copy and printer reports
Hoping this fixes your problem
Regards
Lindsay

I have a Brother MFC-295cn. I first ran out of blue ink. I replaced it and it was working fine. Then it started printing out blank paper. it goes through the motions but paper comes out blank. Anyone...


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

How do i just print only black with brothers 420cn


Hi, you should be able to use the printer options before printing any document. Once in printer options go to the color tab and click on the drop down to black ink only, thats for windows. If using other OS respond and i will get you your answer. As far as for copies goes there is a button that says black and one that says color just put in the scanner and push the black button.

Nothing prints when documents are sent to printer


You didn't mention whether the error was given by the printer or by the PC but I'll give you a couple of tips for troubleshooting this...

Switch the cable to another port on the PC to see if the OS identifies it (if you're using Windows you'll get an audio sound when it gets plugged in). Try to print to it from the new port.

Worst case scenario follow this link to download and re-install your print drivers.

Receiving faxes


First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.
