Question about Brother MFC-640CW All-In-One InkJet Printer
I found a broken MFC-640CW and swapped printheads with my bad one. Now I have an Error 50. What's that?
Also, I didn't have a new waste ink absorber so I tried to flush my old one out with water for about 20 mins. The printer still wants a new one. Where do I buy one?
Error 50: encoder strip (foil paralell to ph traveling path) is out of the ph sensor. You have to push the ph to the very left, open ph cover and reinsert the ph so that the foil is in place within the ph. check by pushing it left /right: the foil must run plain without a wave infront ph.
Buy a new waist ink tank as a spare part from a service partner near your home who can be found at the brother homepage of your country.
NEVER CLEAN A WAIST INK TANK! The cotton will be as stone after it dried up and refuses to take up waistink. Ink will destroy the inside of the machine (and furniture beneath the printer).
You have to do a reset within the eeprom. When you ve bought the new ink absorber plz post here again. Will give you the code then.
