SOURCE: cleaning

This one will cost money, sorry. Inkjet machines periodically clean their nozzles by squirting ink through them, and in the MFC 420 that ink is collected an pumped into big plastic box filled with thick, felt pads. The machine counts how much ink has been squirted into there, and at a certain count refuses to clean it's nozzles (or print) anymore. You need to replace the "Ink Absorber Box," which is only maybe $15, but getting the machine torn down to that point will require a technician.

My brother 5840CN. lit says unable to print. the manual says to take the jam out - there was no jam. Turn it off, then on. i did that. It still says unable to print, look at troubleshooting page


errr.....No, no it does not. The Manual says that "unable to clean" means one of two things.....
1. The MFC has a mechanical problem.-OR-2. A foreign obstacle, such as a clip or ripped paper, is in the MFC.
but regardless, I don't believe it *IS* a 'cleaning' problem per se.Try resetting the power purge counter.



Press menu > Mono Start > 4x Arrow up after another. All lights will flash.
1. Power clean - Press 7>6>4 >Mono? Start.
2. Power Purge: 7>6 >3 >Mono Start.
Press 9>9 to exit maintenance mode. Run a print quality test print.
