    I can't get the usb interface to work. It used to but after a computer motherboard problem the printer would not work. What can be the problem?
    Can it be the controller board in the printer?

My neighbor just gave me a 1600n that apparently has a bad fuser element. The printer is in otherwise good shape. I'll sell you the controller board cheap. Contact me offlist:

Where can I buy a new or refurbished laserjet 4ml printer? I am in Phoenix 85044.

These are very rare to find unless you look on ebay. Not many printer places hold onto them anymore. I did look on ebay and there is a few that are refurbished. I looked at one that had a warranty and it was $100 buy it now with a $30 shipping charge to your postal code.

Best of luck...

Canon s520x printer; error-message "Cartridge not Installed!"

Buy a new printer! Honestly. What likley happened
it that the brown ribbon connector on the back of the frame that
holds all the ink wells has become ripped off or torn from
the green circuit board. This means that there electrical connection is gone, and the printer can't sense the frame
is in place.

This likely happened when you were cleaning it!
It's impossible to repair yourself, you need a new
black frame. can't buy one separately.
You practically need to buy a whole new printer.

I would like to replace or clean the waste absorber pads on a i550 Canon printer.Do you know the technique?

Well to be perfectly honest you can try to clean them but replacing them is pointless, and near impossible because the parts aren't available seperately from the printers, nor will Canon send you replacements. It would probably be cheaper to just buy a new printer. I'd suggest spending a little extra cash on a personal laser printer instead. No need to worry about an waste receptical.

MFC 9420 CN paper tray issue

Look in the parts manual for "engine controller board." You can get replacement boards through at least some of the authorized service centers. I got a refurbished board from a good guy in St. Charles, Illinois (Tom). You can contact him by email.

I'd shy away from buying a complete printer. No guarantee it has an updated board and then you'll be back to where you started.

I'm pretty sure the board dies from a firmware bug that's been dormant until recently. Not sure if the bug is triggered by reaching a certain page count, date, or something else, but if you notice, the reported problems all seem to be emerging within a few months of each other even though the printer was first released more than two years ago. Generally after the warranty expires.

Wont turn on

sorry! I guess the main circuit board is defective and needs replacing. I ve had a lot of brother machines all about 2.5 years old which had the same problem.
To be honest you will need a new machine due to the fact that the spare part is costly as much as a new mfc!

If you are from europe contact brother hotline of your country. brother warranty in eu is three years!

Mfc210c says no device

This could be for two reasons:
1. Lightning strike the days before has seriously damaged the circuit board.
2. (nearly the same) some part within the circuit board is damaged.

In both ways the circuit baord needs replacement. Unfurtunately the costs for this spare part is twice as high as a new mfc 240c...

You can try to buy another defectiv one (scanner broken or clogged print head) from eBay and simply change the circuit board, to keep your machine alive (This is what brother themself do: collecting faulty machines, separate parts and refurbish them for swapping ;-))

AL-1340 flashes L6

I think L6 means that it is not warming up you will either need a new fuser or control board to be honest I would say beyond economical repair.

I need to replace a broken LCD - Is it hard to do?

To be honest it is difficult, you are going to have a hard time finding one, and most likely since it is used to initialize the unit even if in stalled it most likely will not work. You would be better off getting a new unit. Call hp and see if they have any upgrade units available - usually refurbished but they come with a 1 yr warranty and are significantly cheaper than buying a new unit from the store.
