Question about Brother HL 1650 Laser Printer

Error E50 model HL-16

The error code HL-16 comes on just after ram check in red display colour. Does not print or do anything else. I've changed the toner cartridge and moved the corona wire cleaner but no luck.
Any Ideas are welcome. We are a charity school for the deaf and new printers are expensive. Thanks

Re: error E50 model HL-16

You just diagnose your printer of their software that you can identify the error made...or just look the manual on how to reset the default setting of the printer....

3b error code on display unable to print

Sorry, this is a serious error and it means the PC board is toast. On mine, it gets to 22 on the counter (I assume it's a RAM integrity check) and then the LCD turns red and says "Print Unable 3B". When I called Brother they told me I needed a new PC board, which by the way is very hard to get to (you have to disassemble everything, then take apart the printer piece by piece). The price for the PC board is around $100 plus labor, so you're talking easily $200 to fix this.

Thanks Brother for making a self-destructing Lemon of a printer, the Brother HL-4040. And thanks for telling me I was on my own and to fix it a local repair shop.
