1270 e MAKING a shrill sound and screen says parameter init. Had to unplug to make sound stop. Still says parameter init when plugged back in


It may need to be reset.
Please try to unplug it. press & hold the menu/function key while plugging it back in. When lights are blinking release it then press 91. and then display will show parameter init then change to maintenance. Press 99. The display should show date & time.
Hope this helps.

The power went out at the office. when the power was restored my brother intellifax 5750e will not work. there is an error 77 message displaying on it's panel.


you can try this. press "menu/set" " *2864 " within 2 secs. then press "01" and wait for a few seconds until "para init" goes away. then press "99" and when you see "please wait" unplug machine. wait for 15 secs. and plug back in and see if it comes up. if not, then you have a hard error and must have serviced.
good luck,

Print Unable 51 see Troubleshooting and routine maintenance


the purge unit is not functioning properly. it is a part of the machine that caps up your print head when not in use. it is not moving out of the way of the carrier for it to move properly.

turn on the machine, open the top cover . Unplug the machine. move the carrier to the left. Look to the right under the cover where the carrier goes back & fourth, see if any paper or fourn objict is in the area where the carrier sleeps. hope you fines somthing.

Machine Error 76


Machine error 76 is a bad fuser lamp. Machine error 78 is a bad thermistor. Machine error 77 means you hade either a Machine error 76 or Machine error 78 and turned the machine off.
Sometimes the machines will give a false code and can be reset. Unplug machine. Hold down the Menu key while powering back up. You should still get a Machine error message. Enter the number 9...The display should change to Maintenance 9 then enter 1. The Machine error will return. Enter 99 and then make a test print. If you get either a machine error 76 or 78 you will need to have service done on your machine to have either the lamp or thermistor replaced, and depending on the usage of the machine, it might not be a bad idea to replace the entire fuser.

The user can establish the internal Machine Error Code as follows: pull the mains cable out of the machine (power off), hold down the Menu/Set key, re-insert the mains cable into the machine (power on). The internal Machine Error Code will be displayed.
If that doesnt give you the code then try going into service mode by pressin menu key then *, 2 , 8, 6, 4  super quick!! Display goes blank or Maintenence mode is displayed, if not... not quick enough, do again to you get it, then press 77 start, error should display. press 99 to exit Maintence mode, dont play with other numbers!!

a couple of the most common errors are

Error 41 needs new print head costly

error 46 waste ink full, need new waste tank

Whats yours?
