SOURCE: Unable to print and showing an 'unable to print 5A code

There are diffrent reasons for this error:

check, if something sticks in the machine (paper or metal clip)

The paperfeeder clutch gear is broken: check if the paper feeder works well.

The purge station has problems to do the cleaning jobs: gear broken or too much ink within the purge tubes.

Anyway, this problem is hard to handle for a novice due to so many diffrent reasons.

You should contact a service dealer and in case it is still in warranty let fix them.

SOURCE: problem printing unable to print 5A will not go away

Hello we went into the internet and they are all Junk from what we see.We had a MFC-4420C Before and it has a code 41 and all brother does is keep sending you refurbished printers back and forth so you have no warranty at all the warranty starts at the time you buy the first one so that is what happens.So beware anyone with Brother printers with these models. They are both Junk and you will just lose your money.

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...

Hi there

Solution:
· Machine off
· Switch on the machine while holding down the “menu”button until all the leds are flashing on/off. Now you are in “maintenance” mode.
· Press 80
· Press the “mono start” button several times until you see “purge: xxxx”
· Press “2783” in order to reset the purge counter. You will see: “purge:0000”
· Press the "stop" button.
· Press “99” to exit the maintenance mode.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

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.

Printer message: Unable to Print


5A means that the purge cam stopps abnormally when it is in use. This could be of a broken cam shaft. You have to replace the whole purge unit. This is a service job to do!
