Question about Brother Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My Brother Copier MFC-8460N started popping a line on the screen that says "Replace PF1 Kit." I have no idea what that means and i have been receiving faxes and making copies in the 24 hours since this first started appearing. Can you tell me what is going on ,please? I rely on this copier/printer to forward faxes to my home office all weekend for our business so I need it working 24/7. Thank you very much. Toni Mason

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. First use this method to reset the printer:


1) Turn off printer
2) Press and hold the menu button and turn on.
3) Keep holding button until you see maintenance on display.
4) Press 88. This brings up parts replacement menu.
5) Press Up arrow until you see the part you replaced (laser, fuser, pf kit1, pf kit mp).
6) Press the OK button.
7) Power off and restart printer.


If still the issue is not resolved then you can reset the message by pressing "menu" " *2864" within 2 secs. Now you are in maintenance mode. Push "88" should show "parts replacement." using arrow buttons go to reset pf1 kit and press "ok" or "start" to reset. Press "stop/clear" to back out to maintenance mode screen. Press "99" to exit maint. mode. Kindly make sure to follow this in exact same way. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.



Thanks
Rylee

What is a PF kit


This is a "Paper Feed" kit and comprises several small pieces including rollers, springs and friction separator pad. Some models have several of these and will be named "PF1 kit", "PF2 kit" etc normally one for the manual feed tray and one for the paper drawer.
If you look at the front of the paper drawer, you will see a spring loaded friction pad in the centre used to hold back all but one sheet of paper. Directly above this in the printer chassis will be a loose rubber roller assembly which grabs the sheet of paper. together, this collection of parts is called a "PF kit".
The printer memory counts the number of pages fed and will count down an estimated useful life of these parts but this is at best a "guess". When they will no longer reliably feed fresh new paper without jamming, they probably need replacing.

How do I replace PF kit1 Brother MFC-8460n


The paper feed kit is the pick up rollers and the transfer rollers. You can thake those out clean them and replace them, but unless you are actually having paper feed issues usually just clean the paper tray feed rollers with alcohol and reset the paper feed kit counter if needed.

Replace the PF KIT 1 On my MFC 8460 N


that refers to the automatic feed. in other words, your main paper cassette. the MP kit is for the manual bypass tray. if paper is feeding ok and your not having problems, you can reset the message by pressing "menu" " *2864" within 2 secs. now you are in maintenance mode. push "88" should show "parts replacement." using arrow buttons go to reset pf1 kit and press "ok" or "start" to reset. press "stop/clear" to back out to maintenance mode screen. press "99" to exit maint. mode. do not mess with any other settings in that mode as you could render your machine inop. however, you may want to reset the "fuser life" while you are in maintenance mode "88" as both of these messages are supposed to come up at 100,000 pages. chances are unless you've had fuser replaced, that message will be coming up soon also.

good luck,
