Brother MFC790cw shows on LCD "unable to change


Here's the online (english) version of your Brother "Multi-Function Center" Users Manual:

http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_MFC_790CW_990CW_EN_1600.PDF

The closest thing to your error message I can find is
"Unable to Clean XX" on page 156, in which case, your All-in-1 has either a (1) mechanical problem, or (2) a staple/paper clip or torn bit of paper is stuck in the machine.

Use a flashlight to look really closely for little foreign matter that
might be jamming your device - office staples can be insidious.

When trying to use your Brother machine you get the message "Unable to _____". The blank may be the word Change, Print, Scan or Clean and these words may vary from model to model.
This message is a general message and will appear for different reasons. It often indicates a paper jam or a mechanical issue. Complete the following to determine the possible issue.

  1. Check for foreign objects, such as a clip or ripped paper, inside the machine.
    Open the top cover and remove any foreign obstacles from inside the fax machine. If you see jammed paper or another item inside this area, gently pull it out and then close the top cover securely.
  1. If the error continues to appear, the machine may have a mechanical problem.
    If the error message continues to appear, the machine will need to be reset. Resetting the machine will erase all faxes in memory and the Fax Journal Report. However, there is a way to transfer faxes in memory and the Fax Journal Report to another fax machine to print them out. Do the following to transfer the data and reset the machine:

  4. Press the up or down navigation key until FAX TRANSFER appears on the LCD. Then press Menu/Set.
  5. If there are no faxes saved in memory, NO DATA will appear on the LCD. Continue to Step 3.

    If faxes are present, the LCD will prompt you to enter a fax number. Enter the number of the fax that you want to receive and print the faxes. Press Fax Start.
Step3: Reset the machine
After the Fax Journal Report and faxes in memory are transferred to another fax machine, disconnect the Brother machine from the power source for several minutes and then reconnect it.

I attempted to turn on my pool heater and got the following on the LCD display; "888" (followed by) "128" (followed by) "r=5" (then nothing). No controls work on the...


That is part of the start-up sequence. This is normal things to occur on the display during start-up, but the screen going dead is unable to be isolated with being able to eliminate where the exact failures are coming from.
1) Transformer may be bad 2) Board 3) One of the safety switches that is telling the heater to shut off.
The warranty is 2 years on the heater and there is an extended warranty if you purchased a full set (3 pieces of equipment) at the time of the installation.
Sorry that we are unable to assist with more detailed diagnosis and instruction on repair, but this could be anything from a simple safety switch to an electrical component.
