You need a new waist ink absorber box which can be purchased from a service partner near your home. see brother homepage of your country. After replacing you have to do a eeprom reset which can be found at TIPs here in the forum.

I had never had an issue with this MFC 5440 CN until now,It was working perfectly and since a couple of days ago it does no want to print. All ink levels are OK, there are no pieces of paper stuck...


Ivan, see if there are some paper clips or other similar objects stuck somewhere around the paper rollers. There are micro-switches around the rollers, you may want to take a brush and clean up any dust buildup that may be causing these micro-switches to trick the printer into thinking that there's a paper jam of some kind

Brother MFC - 215C Unable to clean, my home doesn't use actual ink tank for Brother, so when every time the ink is less, or almost finish i need to clean it, to **** to ink in. But this time I can't clean,...


The machine has a mechanical problem or a foregn obstacle, such as ripped paper.
unplug electric cord and power on with your finger on MENU button, till you see "MAINTENANCE"
on screen, then release MENU button and dial 82
so you see something like
"machine error" and 2 digits of error code
if there is 46 error code if have to replace the ink absorber box and reset the purge counter to zero.
which error there is?
