This error means that there is a scanner motor error. Try and remove the error by following these steps: Press MENU *,2,8,6,4. The machine beeps for approximately 1 second and will display "MAINTENANCE" on the screen, indicating that it is placed in the initial stage of the maintenance mode, a mode in which the machine is ready to accept entry from the keys. Now you are inside the simulation, Press 01 to reset the error status. After that press 99 to exit the simulation.

- Pressing the 9 key twice in the initial stage of the maintenance mode makes the machine exit from the maintenance mode, restoring it to the standby state.
- Pressing the Stop button after entering only one digit restores the machine to the initial stage of the maintenance mode.

If the error comes back call Brother support, here are the contact details:

I have a brother mcf-8840d with an error code 71. Any thought on what to do?


Your Error 71 means that the mirror motor can't synchronize with the brains of the printer. The problem is most like the motor bearings, meaning you need an new Laser Scanning Unit (LSU), or it could be the main board acting up

What is machine error 71 How to fix it?


Error 71 on a MFC-9600 means there is a problem with the motor inside the printer.
You can try unplugging and waiting a few minutes, then plugging back in again.
If it is still coming up with the error, if its still under warranty Brother will replace/repair it for you, otherwise you will have to pay Brother for the repair cost.

error 71 is a problem with the polygon motor which is in the laser unit. This error usually means that you would need the laser unit replaced.
I'd suggest calling out an engineer.
