Wow! You need a new main circuit board which costs as much as a new mfc.

My printer refuses to print in Black even if it is full but the color cartdridge Y and B are finished....How to make it print?


The way the Brother MFC-420CN is designed, it will not print at all if any of the ink tanks are empty. They say that this is to prevent damage to the printheads.

There is no workaround.

A lot of inkjet printers have this same restriction, if any tanks are empty, it will not print.

Have voip and brother mfc 7420. error code 2001 and 2006


Get a new phone wire. Put a phone on the line and listen for static. Too many phones on one line will cause problems. If the phone line is going thru a surge protector, check the quality of the sound with it and without it, it may be damaged. Keep power wires away from phone wires, they cause static.

Buy a new waistinktank at a service partner who can be found at the brother homepage of your country. You need this sparepart to replace the old one. DONT CLEAN THE OLD ONE DUE TO SERIOUS DAMAGE OF THE WHOLE PRINTER.

See here how to reset the eeprom:

Receiving faxes


First make sure your line cable is plugged into the correct place. Most Brother machines have a plug for Line and a plug for Extension (EXT), make sure it's plugged into "Line".

Go into the menu on your Brother machine and select Fax, then Setup Receive and then select Easy Receive. This will usually solve most recieve problems.
Brother machines come with s default of 4 rings before they will answer, make sure none of your other devices (such as an answering machine) are set to a lower number of rings or the fax machine will never grab the line.

If you have distinctive ring, make sure you have it set up in the machine. There is a section in the owners manual for setting up discinctive ring.

If the machine grabs the line and goes through the motions but nothing comes out on the page (no black print) then make sure you are using a Brother ink cartridge (not refilled or generic) and print out the test page using the "ink" button. Allow the machine to clean a few times and see if the test page prints out correctly. If you are using refills or a generic black, you might have premanently damaged the print head. In this case take it to a service centre to have the head tested.

No Dial tone for fax


Did you choose the right input for fax? Or did you connect to the phone line in at the mfc? Did you choose the right settings? See handbook for that.
