Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
When I plug in the printer, the scanner light-bar does it's little self-test thing, and it goes to the right a few inches, then back to its home. But the belt gears keep spinning, creating a grinding noise while the gears slip on the belt. This goes on for way too long, then the printer returns an error. It seems that it doesn't recognize when the scanner has returned to it's home position. Is this something that can be fixed with a new part, or is the circuit board shot?
I have the same issue: scanner does not know when the light-bar has reached home position so the motor continues to turn the cog which slips under the belt causing a loud rattling until it decides (incorrectly) that something is blocking the "light-bar" from returning home and it stops and says error "scan unable". I've taken it all apart and I can't even figure out how the light bar is supposed to know when it has returned to the beginning (home) position.... anybody?
