I had a power issue. I have replaced the PS board and the Main PCB. However, I now am unable to change channels? What am I missing? Do I need to replace the T-con PCB?

Hi, check all your cable plugs and ribbons for a good fit/connection, also check the full part number on the replaced Main AV, this is typical of a variant mismatch fault, manufacturers change software and firmware quite often during production runs.

Unable to print 48

Probably problem with the Flat cable which connects the Head with the Main PCB. Re install it. If not then probably Main PCB Faulty. Ask for Warranty replacement !!

Hi I have a trouble with my MFC-5440CN brother machine the massage is reading error 46 please can you help

Hi! It seems the purge counter has reached its limit, to reset it follow these steps:
  1. Press "Menu" and then press *2864 in quick succession ("maint" should displayed and all the lights on the printer should be flashing).
  2. Press 80 then keep pressing the black/mono start button until "purge count" is displayed.
  3. Press 2783 to reset the purge count.
  4. press the stop/exit key.
  5. press 99.
  6. The printer should return to normal.
You should also purchase a new ink absorber for the printer and install it as soon as possible, it can function like this but requires a replacement.

Error message: "Unable to print

The machine is jammed internally.
Open the printer and look for a foreign object such as a paper clip or torn piece of paper. If it is not this then there is a mechanical problem that need to go to shop for repair.
Look on page 157 of the owners manual. Let me know if you need the manual.
Let me know if this help.

Brother MFC 640 printer/all-in-one power supply dead

Hi Ben. I just posted a similar problem. Are you sure it's the Power Supply though?. The one in my unit is fine, as are the low voltage supplies on the main PCB. (5V and 3.3V). The problem is the biggest IC on the main board getting hot.

Brother mfc MFC-5440CN magenta issues

If you have used generic ink the head is clogged and cant be cleaned anymore.

Last chance is to use original brother ink which has cleaning fluids within the ink. Run the cleaning procedure twice and simply print 10 PAGES afterwards. Wait A DAY AND TRY TO PRINT IN MAG AGAIN:

If there will be no mag. the ph is definitley clogged and needs replacement.

Did you had a lighting strike the days before?
This is a typical behavior for some short circuit within the main circuit board. Another reason could be a defective part within the main circuit board.

In both ways the main board has to be replaced which costs more than a new mfc!

I have error 29 on my 210c

!!!! Magenta ink error !!!!
The ink has run out or the ink cartridge is not set into place.
26: Black ink
27: Yellow ink
28: Cyan ink
29: Magenta ink
1. Reload ink cartridges, referring to the Owner's Manual.
2. Ink cartridge PCB defective Replace the ink refill ASSY.
3. Cannot detect ink cartridges.Main PCB defective Replace the main PCB.
I know your machine was not originally showing signs of main board fault or Ink supply issues, although main board can be killed by incorrect use of maintence mode.

Will not print shows power on but when you try to shut it down by the power off it would not shut down. unpluged it and now there is nothing happen. when this first happen I let it sit for about three...

Let me guess: your mfc is about 2.5 years old.
Had a lot of mfc which wont power on because of a bad capacitor.
Thanks to saving policies of brother! Cheap materials which wont last more than 3 years.
This cant be fixed. What you can try is to buy a 2nd hand mfc 5440cn or a 5840cn with a bad printhead and change the main pcb.
