    This is the brother DCP-130C. The advice I got is for another printer.

  • Raphael Josiah Apr 26, 2010

    Ok. you are right. Unit unable AF. Ok. I've seen the switch on other printers before(larger copiers) but none on this one. Shouldnt I still be able to print if this is just a scanner problem?

Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya.

There is no error like "Unit unable AP"
But there is an error "Init unable AF" and Blinking red "!" light.
I think this is your problem.

Error AF means that the scanner unit is malfunctioning.
This is a hardware fault and cannot be solved by an end user.
The scanner unit have to be replaced.
Else,
Sometimes these small machines have a lock to hold the scanner in place for shipping.

Check to see if you have one and be sure it is the unlocked position.

If you have one it is usually on the left side or under the scanner portion where the paper comes out.
I hope this may solve your problem.
Good Luck and have a nice day

    As you printer is All In One, If any of the device (scan, print,copy etc.) is faulty, it will not perform any operation until it has been resolved.

When all the lights are flashing together, turn the printer power OFF, wait 5 seconds and then turn the printer power ON again. If the error continues, disconnect the interface cable from the back of the printer and use the following steps to reset the printer:
Turn off the printer. Press and hold down the Go button on the front of the printer, at the same time turn the printer power on. When the Toner light is on by itself, release the Go button. Push and hold the Go button again, release the Go button when the Paper light is on by itself.
If the above steps does not help, you can use the link given below:

Status light is red


Hi, Based on your post/description, the Siemens AP/Router is at fault. This could have been brought about by lightning, power surge, plain hardware failure or system/software error. The red status light - on indicates an error (on the firmware)(blinking during start-up or when firmware is being downloaded/updated); WAN light blinking green - data transmission to/from your ISP (it is also possible that the router is trying to download corrective software or firmware update). Suggest you let it run for sometime just in case it is really downloading/upgrading firmware. If full reset of the router doesn't correct the problem, you may have to replace the unit. Good luck and kind regards.
