SOURCE: Print Unable 34

There might be some paper left in the machine. Check the very edges espacially the left side (seeing from the front).

Another reason could be that the encoder strip isn t in right position or is stained from ink.

Anyway try the first solution first.

If you stll have trouble try to open the printer:

and have a close look to the encoder strip + disc (and look out for some paper in the edges... ;-))

SOURCE: Print unable 32 ?

Print unable 32 is dirt or scratch on the transfer belt assembly. There's a timing mark on the belt that a sensor must read. If the belt is damaged, you will need a new one.

SOURCE: Printer says "Unable to print 70"

Usually that error means the encoder strip behind the carriage assembly is out of position or very dirty. Best to remove the top cover to correct, you might also find a scrap of paper either on the extreme right or left stopping the carriage from moving properly.

Hi I have Brother dcp 350 printer. I have the error 46 unable to print/clean i cant get the printer back to normal functions. I have change the inks (all) and I am still get the same error message 46....


The messages unable to print, unable to clean, unable 36, error 46 and error 32 are all print head errors.

1. Remove all the ink cartridges from the machine
2. Clean the contacts on the cartridges as well as inside the machine itself with a small amount of warm water or alcohol on a cotton swab until no ink comes off on the swab.

Note: if any of the other cartridges are low, empty, leaking or bulging replace them

3. Then turn off the machine and unplug it for 70 seconds
4. Plug it back it and wait for the insert cartridges message
5. Insert the cartridges and check to see if the problem is still there. If it is it means the print head has failed and in order to fix this the print head inside the printer needs to be replaced. The print head is the part of the printer that puts ink from the cartridges onto the page

Unfortunately this can sometimes cost more to replace then the machine itself.

I am unable to print and have the following error message Oxc18a0401 come up. How do I solve this?


Try This.
Press and hold the “*” key.
Press the “#” key and release both keys.
Display should say “Enter Special Key Combo”
Press and release in sequence the “1”, “2” and “3” buttons.
screen says "support" R0631M
Press and release the right arrow button until the display says “System Configuration Menu”.
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status”. If not there already, Arrow Key over to “Hardware failure status”,
Press and release the “OK” button.
Display should say “Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear”.
Press and release the “OK” Button. Message changes to “Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue”.
Press and release the “CANCEL” button as many times as necessary, so that, either the “Welcome to Photosmart Express” screen appears, or, the “Ink System Failure” screen appears. DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
Turn the unit on. The printer may display message “USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER” followed by “PRESS OK TO CONTINUE”. Press OK. The Printer will start the “ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS”. Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.
If it didn't print a diagnostic page
Is the error message still being displayed on the printer?
No? Good.
Press Setup menu on the All-in-One then scroll using the arrow key and select Print Report then select Self Test Report.

Print unable 32 comes up after a successful print job


The message "Print Unable 32" or "Machine Error 32" will appear on the LCD display if paper or labels are stuck inside the printer or drum unit.

Follow the manufacturers recommendations on how to clean the rollers, etc.
Read the users manual.

My Brother MFC-235C shows print unable 32 read user manual but I dont have a manual


The message "Print Unable 32" or "Machine Error 32" will appear on the LCD display if paper or labels are stuck inside the printer or drum unit.
:
This will also appear if there is either a mechanical issue or just a problem with a sensor possibly software.
:
1) The way to resolve this issue is to make sure there is no paper in between the rollers or on top of the print heads (if applicable).

2) If there is no paper the you will need to hard reset the printer which will restore to manufacuter settings and reset software.

Hold down the Menu botton while plugging in the power cable. The display should read "Maintenance." let go of the menu button and then punch in 91. The display should read "Param Init." The unit will beep once. Then type 99. The unit will exit maintenance mode.

This only works for maybe 30% of the time.
:
3) If this does not work then : Refer to Manufacturer or return the item.

IF PRINTER DOES NOT HAVE A MENU BUTTON:

1)Turn the printer power switch OFF. Check that the front cover is closed.

2)Turn the printer power switch ON while holding down the GO button until the Toner, Drum and Paper LEDS are lit.
3)Release the GO button. All LEDs will be off.
4)Press the GO button 8 times. The Ready LED will flash briefly while the printer is reset. After the printer is reset the READY LED will be lit.
