I have a MFC 240C and got the 5A "read the manual" can't print error. A paper jam had occurred and knocked out a piece of plastic/door on the back of the printer. I cleared the paper jam from the back by gently pulling out the paper, replaced the plastic part in the back of printer. Then I pulled the front paper loader out- looked around in there for paper scraps from the front, and put that back in. It still would not print. Then finally I opened the ink door (front right) and pressed each ink cartridge as if to take them out, then pushed them each back in and the machine was fixed.

This is most likely a fault with the purge shaft and is not worth fixing if the printer is worth less than $200.

Unable to clean, error 5A. Already reset purge counter. Print head clear of any obstructions and moves properly. Unable to determine what error 5A is.


Hi Jason, 5A is usually caused by a bad maintenance unit. The purge cam gear may be broken or too much load on the maintenance unit. Either way replacing maintenance unit should solve the problem.

Error 5a in brother dcp 130c


5a says the purge assembly is stuck, you need to pull the printhead out of the right corner and check for paper scraps or debris. If the printhead is stuck, don't force it, just power up and wait for the head to come out and unplug the machine. Check inside on the right with a flashlight and remove any scraps.

Brother MFC-9440CN error 5A print unable


Error 5A unable to print is a problem with the high voltage power supply PCB, or with the engine PCB. A shop could tell you which one after some testing. Expensive repairs...

I have an error 5A in my dcp-110c


Purge unit error. Check for a piece of paper in the purge unit - right hand side of printer where the carriage sits. Trick the machine by powering off while carriage is moving and check for paper under the cover. If no paper there is a problem you can not correct and you need to get it serviced.
