on my DCP 130C display appear an errore message "imp. stamp 50". This is an error message in italian language that indicate impossible to print, error 50.
Please, have you some suggestion to resolve this problem?
Thansk in advance
You need a new ink absorber box which can be purchased from a brother service partner near your home.
If you have got the spare part (ink absorber box) you have to open the printer:
Do NOT clean the old one! It cant be cleaned: The felt wont take up ink
anymore and will stain the machine from inside and the furniture
beneath the printer.
After replacing the eeprom of the printer needs reset:
(dcp: use arrow-up and set key to choose the digits. e.g. arrow-up til 8 then set arrow up til 0 then set
mfc: use the fax-number keys.
Stop-button will always go back to maintenance, if you have done wrong)
press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow up quickly after another.
machine will switch to maintenance mode and light(s) will flash.
press 8 0
press start bk-copy until PURGE 64xx
press 2 7 8 3
Purgecount will be 0000
press 9 9 to leave the maintenance mode.
After the mfc/dcp comes up again in normal state the error has disappeared
Hi, check to see if there is any foreign object jamming the print mechanism, check all drive belts. If this doesn't show nup any problems, I'm afraid that you have a failure that will require dis-assembly and repair by a company who deals in these printers.
- pull out the AC plug - put back the AC plug while holding down the "menu" button and keep holding it (15 sec) - now you are entering the MAINTENANCE mode and "error 46" pops up in the display - select 8 by using the arrow buttons ,push OK and select 0 and push OK - 00:00 00:01 OK (the display is showing this message) - now push the MONO button 25 times until you see PURGE: xxxxx - Select 2, push ok, select 7,push ok,select 8,push ok, select 3,push ok - the purge counter indicates now: purge: 00000 - switch off the printer ,switch it on - ready to print
IT means you need to reset the purge counter in order to that .
For MFC - 240c
1.Enter mainatanace mode by pressing menu button at time of switch on. and leve the menu button when fax/scan/copy/photocapture button start blinking
2.press *, 8 & 0 and drag the this submenu by pressing mono button to get "purge" eg (purge:9624)
3.Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero. 4.Press the Stop/Exit . OFF the printer .and turn it on.
