Question about Brother MultiFunction Center MFC-440CN All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Brothers MFC-465CN won't copy, print or fax.

The MFC-465CN printer reads on the screen " Cover is open. Please close the scanner cover and ink cartridge cover". I have opened and close these covers more than 30 times and unplugged the machine for days at a time and the error message is still . I have had this machine for 3 years with no problems and it has been great. Is there a simple fix for this?

Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: how can I delete the memory on a brother mfc-465cn

Review page 65 in your manual. Changing the "Advanced Fax Operations:"

If received faxes are left in your machine's
memory when you change the Advanced Fax
Operations, the LCD will ask you one of the
following questions:

Erase All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

Print All Fax?
Yes - Press 1
No - Press 2

• If you press 1, faxes in the memory will
be erased or printed before the setting
changes. If a backup copy has already
been printed it will not be printed again.
• If you press 2, faxes in the memory will
not be erased or printed and the setting
will be unchanged.

SOURCE: my brother mfc 465cn keeps saying paper jam. I do

The paper sensor is either stuck or dirty.
Just open it and follow the paper path and you should see where it is.

Otherwise, the sensor may be bad.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-465CN printer. Need a fix for error 46.

The problem is due to the fact that Brother machines excessively self-clean. Each time they self-clean a small amount of ink is dumped in to a holding tank/sponge. When a predefined number of self-clean operations have been performed, the machine refuses to print and gives the error message you have stated. Brother state that the tank/sponge must be replaced before the counter is reset, again by a Brother agent.

However, there is a way of reseting the self-clean counter yourself - if you Google your model number and the error code somewhere in the results you'll find how to do it. The only risk of doing this without changing the tank/sponge is that it will eventually overflow and leak out the bottom, but I did my Brother all in one some time ago and have had no problems yet.

Thick black line when faxing and coping brothers ink jet model MFC-J615W


It really depends on how thick the black line is. If its say 1/2" to 1" thick then a segment of the contact image sensor has failed. If its very thin then that would be just dirt either of the scanner glasses or under them. When you open the scanner cover you will find two glasses. the thinner one is for the adf and the very large is for flat bed scanning. If you get the line when using both then the CIS is faulty and needs replacing. If either one is good with no line then it could be just the ribbon cable that goes from the main board to the CIS.

Brother MFC-465CN printer Error code 51 unable to print


Usually this is caused by a foreign object or debris under the printhead path, or under where the printhead "parks."

Unplug the machine. Open the cover. Check the printhead path for little bits of paper, push pins, paperclips, staples etc. Note the location of the printhead.

If the printhead is at the far left, gently slide it towards the center (do not force it). Look carefully under where the printhead was stopped for debris. Use a flashlight if necessary.

Close the cover. Plug in the unit. Try again.

"unable to clean"


Hi dbostrander.
First check for foreign objects in the paper path. Check if you have any faxes in memory because you will lose them when removing power; see later.
Pull out the paper tray from the front and check for paper jams or torn paper anywhere inside the machine. Also check the 'jam clear screen' at the back of the printer. Remove the cover, remove any obstacle then replace ther cover.From the front of the machine lift the top cover from the right side till it is fully open on the slide. Check for jams. If the jam is under the print head you will have to disconnect the power (losing any faxes in memory *see below) to move the print head out of the way to clear the jam.Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.
Check whether the MFC has faxes in
memory
1.Press Menu/Set, 9, 0, 1.
2. If the MFC has no faxes, disconnect the MFC
from the power source for several minutes
and then reconnect it then do as above.


—OR—
If faxes are present, you can transfer them to
another fax machine
If you have not set up your Station ID, you
cannot enter fax transfer mode.
3.Enter the fax number to which faxes will be
forwarded.
4.Press Mono Start.
5.After the faxes are transferred, disconnect
the MFC from the power source for several
minutes and then reconnect it.
You can transfer the Fax Journal report to
another fax machine by pressing Menu/Set, 9,0, 2 in step 1.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

Use MFC-465CN withou cartridges


in order to scan you need to have ink in cartridges?... great design!!! cheat the printer - use black electric tape to cover transparent slots at the back of your cartridges (printer will think that it has ink and it should stop that annoying beeping)

Black cartridge doesn't print


you need to do a hard reset on the printer as well it might clear up the problem and recognize the ink at its proper levels.

refer to your user manual or let us know and we will find the procedure to do so.

i have a similar model and know how picky they can be.

Ink cartridges....


Which cart arent recognized? The yellow one or the cyan(blue) one or both?

Anyway:
Unplug machine from power. Wait three minutes. In this time take all carts out and close cover. reconnect machine to power. Machine demands carts. Open cover. Reinsert carts. Make sure that the support clip of the cart.holder is secured above the cart cover.

If you still have probs with one cart. the led contact on the circuit board is defectiv. You need a new cart holder then, which can be ordered as a spare part from a service partner near your home (see brother homepage).
