The mechanical error is something literally wrong with the mechanics, usually this error occurs after a paper jam and when the paper is pulled out it cracks the maintenance unit.

Other issues include the switching arm, the ink cartridge/purge switch harness, purge cam switch, paper feed motor, and the main pcb.

My brother printer is saying 'Unable to Init.'


This error message is sometimes due to foreign material under the printhead path or underneath where the printhead stops or parks.

Unplug the unit. Open the cover. Use a flashlight if necessary and carefully inspect the area underneath the printhead path. If the printhead is stopped or parked, gently move it enough to look at the area underneath. Common items are little bits of paper, staples, paperclips, push pins etc. Remove any foreign material.

Close cover. Plug in the machine.

Error message.


Unplug the device, then press and hold the "menu" button and plug the device. You'll see the "machine error" code. Check this code in Internet or this site and you'll understand the problem.

Brother MFC 420cn "Cannot Init"


This is the Head Error 41

Error 41 means there is a major problem with the printhead, usually
requires a print head replacement.

My advice is to take it to a
Brother service centre while if it is under warranty.

If it's out of warranty they are usually a throw away job, the heads cost as much as the printer.

Sorry I know what it feels like, just have a go and see what you can do, clean the heads and so on.

All the Best and good luck: Pineworks

Paul,

did you had a paperjam the days before?

The encoder strip which gives the print head the position is out of position. It has to be fixed into the ph.
