Brother MFC-440CN Error 50

I have a Brother MFC-440CN printer and I am getting the error 50 message. I have looked at the threads here http://www.fixya.com/support/t243260-err... so that I can reinstall the encoder strip.

But the 440 seems to have a different cover arrangement so even after removing the screws to 'lift off' the top cover, it still doesn't want to budge. It looks like the whole cover wraps around the printer.

Any help appreciated.

The cover on the 440CN is tough to get off. I have removed many. I will tell you that the cable from the scan (black mylar [plastic]) is fragile. I destroyed one of the printers by killing the connector end of the cable. That being said, on the 440 you have to remove the push button panel before the cover. There are 3 screws in the back. The cover then snaps off but feels like you are breaking it and it will snap as it comes off. I did not break this part on any of the printers so.... you should not worry too much. After that there are clips on the front that keep the top cover on. You must release these with a screw driver. You can insert the screw driver and twist. While twisting apply some upward pressure and it will release. You also have to remove a number of connectors, ground wire to get it apart.

I get an error message on Canon i960 printer that tells me the waste ink tank full. How can I empty this myself?


Read it all here.
Scroll about half the page, to:
WASTE TANK ALMOST FULL or FULL ERROR MESSAGE PROBLEMThere is explained how to get rid of the error message very easy, and how to clean the waste ink pad manually. The latter seems not to be necessary, though.

Printer Problem


error occurred
1. Press CANCEL JOB to clear the print job from the printer memory.
2. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on.
3. Try printing a job from a different software application. If the job prints, go back to the first application and try printing a different file. (If the message only appears with a certain software application or print job, contact the software vendor for assistance.)
4. If the message persists with different software applications and print jobs, disconnect all cables to the printer that connect it to the network or printer.
5. Turn the printer off.
6. Remove all memory DIMMs or third-party DIMMs from the printer. (Do not remove the firmware DIMM in the lowest DIMM slot.)
7. Remove all EIO devices from the printer.
8. Turn the printer on.
9. If the error no longer exists, install each DIMM and EIO device one at a time, making sure to turn the printer off and back on as you install each device.
10. Replace a DIMM or EIO device if you determine that it causes the error.
11. Remember to reconnect all cables that connect the printer to the network or computer.
12. If the error persists, replace the firmware DIMM.
13. Replace the formatter.

Brothe MFC-240C paper jam error msg won't clear


















**, it is not fixed. I followed instructions on Brother web site and was able to find a piece of paper near the printhead, so I removed it. The printer makes a grinding sound when it tries to print and the same paper jam error returns and can't be cleared. I beleive that the printer repair cost will be more expensive than replacing it with a different printer, and it won't be Brother brand. I probably would not be able or have the tools to do any complicated repair job.
