SOURCE: unable to clean message in brother dcp-115c aio

I saw on this site codes for another MFC to clear memory and reset the cleaning unit count code to zero. It worked on two of my brother mfc 820cw units. The third mfc 5840cn had unable to print error message 46- nothing at Brother. they want you to take everything to a repair shop.they don't help at all. Then the error went to 4F when I tried toclear the memory.As Iunderstand that message- it means I have to replace the printer head. Have no clue where or what it is. But I can read a manual as well as anyone and follow directions to fix it! Can't be worse than it is now! Good luck

The proper reset code sequence to reset DCP printers without numeric keypad should be as follows:
1. press buttons Set, Menu, Mono Start one by one, followed by up arrow key four times. this should all be done as short a time as possible, around 3 seconds.
2. enter maintenance mode 80 by pressing the up/down arrow key and set key to select numbers 8 and 0
3. press up arrow key several times to get to the Purge item
4. enter 2, 7, 8 and 3 using arrow/set keys to reset the counter
5. press Stop/Exit key to go to root of maintenance mode
6. enter 9,9 to exit maintenance mode
(for printers with numeric keypad):
Resetting purge counter on: MFC-620CN / MFC-420CN / MFC-410CN / MFC-210C and FAX-2440C:
1. Enter machine maintenance mode (on MFC-210C all four photo/copy/fax/scan lights flash in maintenance mode). Care is needed in maintenance mode, otherwise critical settings may be inadvertently corrupted.
FAX models with numerical keypads: Press the Menu/Set, *, 2, 8, 6 and 4 keys within two seconds. (if you fail to complete the correct key sequence within two seconds, press the Stop key to try again).
Other (non-FAX) models: Press the Menu/Set and Black Start keys. Next press the “up arrow” key four times to enter the maintenance mode.
2. Press the 8 then 0 keys in the initial stage of the maintenance mode to call up the machine's log information list (function code 80).
3. Press the Black Start key several times to scroll through the log information list to reach the purge counter. The purge counter is the 25th item in the list.
4. Press the 2, 7, 8, and 3 keys in this order to reset the purge count to zero.
5. Press the Stop/Exit key to return to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.
6. Press the 9 key twice to return to the standby state.

How to reset unable to clean 50 error on brother dcp-j125? I cant open my printer brother dcp-j125 due to an error unable to clean 50.no paper jam occured


Clean 50 is either Dirty Encoder Stripe or broken Maintenance Unit. In first case clean thoroughly the vertical Encoder Stripe and it should work. In case 2 better exchange the machine

I cannot print or copy . i see error 51


Error 51 is a paper jam code. Remove the paper tray in the front and the jam clear cover in the back (the light gray plastic piece in the center of the rear of the printer) and pull out any paper you can see.

Once you've removed the paper, the jam code should clear on the display, but if it doesn't, try resetting the machine. If the jam code is still there, that means there is still paper somewhere inside the machine. Check again to make sure you didn't miss any, and also lift the scanner bed to see if you can see any paper under there. (To lift the scanner, lift up with the tabs on either side until the scanner locks into place.)

Error 50 afte paper jam


The following is an extract from the Brother Service Manual that covers your machine:
"Error Code 50 & 51: The purge cam switch does not come ON or OFF even after the purge cam has been driven by the specified number of pulses."
The manual lists seven different causes, best case being the need to clean part of the mechanism, the worst case being replace the whole main electronics board !
Unless you have very good skills for dismantling such a complicated machine*, your choices are take it to a Brother Service agent who will probably charge you more than a new machine, or bin it - sorry !
* If you want to have a go at dismantling it, the service manual can be bought on eBay for about £5. If you don't want to spend that much, I can supply you a .PDF file copy for £1 - just post back here and I'll sort it out.

Hi there

DCP 115C does not print


Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
Open the scanner cover by pulling up on the lower right corner of the cover. Look inside the machine and remove any foreign objects. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the scanner cover securely

the manual states for this problem
"The machine has a mechanical problem.
OR
A foreign obstacle such as a clip or ripped
paper is in the machine."

Brother Print Unable 50 Error


No ;-)

The encoder strip switched off the ph and has to be set into place again.
see here how to fix it:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t211210-brother_mfc845cw

(enlarge the browser window to see pics somewhat better)

An advice:
when you have set the encoder strip in pos. again stick some scotch tape on the top of the ph cover where the strip runs thru to prevend the slipping off again on next paper jam ;-)

Paper fed error


check the paper jam clear cover at the back site of printer:

When taking it out you can see the wave formed clear plastic which is on top of the cover.
try to stroke with your finger alongside. this can be the reason for the paper jamming.

Print and copy comes out blank paper - MFC-420CN All in one


mac,

I guess your machine has a serious problem with the purge unit.
Its indicated thru error 39. (the other ones are quite normal: A! menas Cover open (when replacing carts) and the 8x are related to paper feeder (running without paper/paper jam))

Have a look on the encoder disc which is positioned on one of the big white gear wheels on left hand side. Is it stained or broken/scratched? Do you hear scratching noises when machine is powered up?

Anyway its worth a look. But it could be that the print head has dryed out/clogged though it wasnt cleaned for a while.

If you cant get the error clear the only way to fix the machine is to replace the whole print unit including ph and cart holder (incl. tubes). This is quite simple to do because you can simply unplug the connectors on the main circuit (left hand side red/black cable), loose one screw which is within the metal (position near power inlet, can be seen from above), unfasten the cart holder connector to main board. Unfasten the two white flat cable of the ph.

The whole spare part can be used from a dcp 110c/dcp 115c which you can buy as a 2.hand one at eBay. HAve a look for a dcp with broken scanner glass ;-)
