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.

SOURCE: Brother mfc 420cn, machine error

Your waste ink absorber box has reached its limit. You have to replace the box (which is cheap, get one from your local brother service centre).
After replacing it you have to reset the purge counter and flushing counter.

This is not easy to do and I don't recommend it for anyone who is not technically inclined. You have to remove the front control panel, open the covers on the top cover assembly under the scanner. Unplug all the cables. Disconnect the ground wire (if any), remove the prop, remove the scanner assy by opening 90 degrees and sliding rearward. Put scanner aside. Remove four screws holding top case on, pry out the bosses at the front and remove the top cover.
At the rear you will see the flushing box or waste ink box. Lift it up a little. You should see two tubes attached. Remove the tubes and pull the box out. Dispose of old box. Attach the tubes to the new box and install it where the old one was. Reassemble in reverse order. Don't forget to plug in all the cables under the control panel.

Plug the unit in while holding down the Menu button. Keep holding until all the lights are flashing. Welcome to maintenance mode.
Press 8 and then 0. Press the Black Start key several times until you see Purge or Purge Count on the display. Now press 2, 7, 8, 3 to clear the count. Press Stop. Press 8, 0 again and the Black Start key several times until you see Flush or Flushing count. Again press 2, 7, 8, 3 to reset the flush count. Press Stop. Press 9 and 9 to exit maintenance mode. Job done.

Do you mean "unable to clean"?If it this follow this instruction.
Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on the LCD screen a "machine error" code.If this code is 40,41 or 4F the print head is defective.If the error is 50 or 51 there is error in Purge unit and printer require service.If the error is 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:Enter 80, then scroll down with the arrow down (round) key. You'll find an entry listed as purge count. If numberis over 6000, enter 2 7 8 3.This will reset the purge count value. Then restart the printer, hopefully without the annoying cannot clean message.

No disk


Hi There,

You can save yourself some time and money by doing a Google search for the Brother MFC-420CN installation CD. I am not sure what Operating System you have on your PC/Laptop but if you Google something like: ie.. Installation CD WinXP Brother MFC-420CN - you will get a good amount of responses. Then you can either save the info to your hard drive or burn it to a CD.

Sometimes if you contact the manufacturer and tell them you lost your CD - they will send one out for free.

Both of these options work, but I would go with the download cause if you lose it again the info will be stored and don't forget to backup your downloads for future use..

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate me.

Thanks and Happy Holidays..

Doesn't work


You need to download the driver for vista from the brother webite. The disks that came with it only work up to XP.
Go to www.brother.com
Click on support or downloads.
Follow the on-screen instructions and download the drivers.
