I'm getting error code "Print Unable 5A" on the LCD when I turn it on.
This is a brand new color laser which has only printed about 50 sheets.
Thanks

    I have the same/similar problem, but it's a "Print Unable 23" error. I turn it off and back on, but to no avail. The manual is worthless; Brother's support website is equally worthless.



    Does anybody have an idea what this problem is and how to fix it.



    Thanks much in advance,

    Sam

Error 5A unable to print is a problem with the high voltage power supply PCB, or with the engine PCB. A shop could tell you which one after some testing. Expensive repairs...

Hi there

Solution:
· Machine off
· Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu”button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
· Press 80
· Press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
· Press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
· Press the "stop" button.
· Press “99” to exit the maintenance mode.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

SOURCE: Brother MFC-9440CN Laser Printer how do i set

The only real way to make this printer wireless, is to connect its ethernet port to a wireless router and via the router, send jobs to the printer wirelessly. hope this helps. Cost is about $60-$70 for the router.

Throw that piece of garbage out and get an HP or Samsung. One of these has plagued my office for years and I've spent countless hours plotting its demise. Worse than useless: unreliable.

How do I set Brother 9440 MFC to print using black cartridge only?


Hello,

You can set the MFC-9440CN to print with the black toner cartridge only through the printer drivers.

If you are using Mac, this needs to be changed before you print or set a preset.

If you are using windows, follow the below steps.

1. Go to Start menu \ Control Panel \ Printers (devices and printers for windows 7)
2. Right click on the MFC-9440CN and select "printing preferences"
3. Under the "basic" tab, you will see "color mode"; simply select "mono"

Thank you,

My yellow toner is out and the printer will not print in just black


Hello,

The MFC-9440CN should be able to work even if one or more of the color cartridges are empty.

here's what you can do to print in black only.

1. Unplug the power to the MFC-9440CN
2. Clear the print queue on your computer so that there are no jobs waiting.
3. Right click on the MFC-9440CN printer icon and select "printing preferences"
4. Select "mono" as the color mode.
5. Turn the power back on for the printer.

Now when you print it will be in black only and it should work even if all 3 colored toner's are empty.

Thanks,

Pat

Problem printing unable to print 5A will not go away


Hello we went into the internet and they are all Junk from what we see.We had a MFC-4420C Before and it has a code 41 and all brother does is keep sending you refurbished printers back and forth so you have no warranty at all the warranty starts at the time you buy the first one so that is what happens.So beware anyone with Brother printers with these models. They are both Junk and you will just lose your money.

Printer message: Unable to Print


5A means that the purge cam stopps abnormally when it is in use. This could be of a broken cam shaft. You have to replace the whole purge unit. This is a service job to do!
