Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Brother Multifunction Inkjet MFC-210C Reset Required

The LCD is displaying 'Unable to Clean' and the Troubleshooting Guide suggests that there is something jamming the works.

I have carefully checked the machine [bit of a tech myself] and there is nothing to dislodge.

The Brother website suggests sending the unit for repair.

Does anyone know the procedure to reset these printers? Usually this involves holding down a sequence of keys whilst plugging in the power. The service agents do not share this as its a simple way to gain revenue.

Your help would be appreciated. Sending it for repair is out of the question as the value is only in the ink cartridges.

    Hi Mix-it-up,

    Your solution goes part way to solve the problem but I always end up with Machine Error 46 with all four buttons [Photo Capture, Copy, Fax, Scan] flashing green. Can you continue to offer possible solutions?

    I was surprised to actually get a reply from Brother which also shows Error 46. Here is their solution which didn't help me but may be worth while for your database of solutions:

    "Please do according to what we advise in the following:-


    Take
    the power off on the back of machine ---> Holding down the Menu/Set
    button (Don’t release) and take the power back in at the same time
    ---> Releasing Menu/Set button till MAITENANCE coming ---> Please
    type "82" and see what will be happen from LCD ---> Please report
    Error code or Error message to us




    If
    Error "00" coming, please push Stop/Exit button to make the machine
    into MAINTENANCE MODE. Please type "99" when Maintenance coming from
    LCD. The machine will back to normal situation and report message
    showing on LCD to us".

Press menu then start bk-copy then fourtimes arrow-up.
machine will be in maintenance mode.
press 8 then 0 (zero) and then several times til PURGE 96xx (not sure about digits). press 2-7-8-3 and then 9 -9 to leave maintenance.

You have to replace the waistink absorber, too! Without changing you will seriously demamge the machine!

Brother MFC 210C with error code 4F


Access the internal maintenance mode by pressing the Menu/Set button, then press * 2 8 6 4 within 2 seconds.
This should put you in the maintenance mode menu.
Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key.
You'll find an entry listed as purge count.
If number is over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.

This will reset the purge count value. Then restart your printer and it should work just fine !
