It sounds like you suffered a brown-out and that has damaged the printer. Contact the utility company, as them why the power went out and how to make a claim for damaged electrical equipment because of it.

The message "Print Unable 32" or "Machine Error 32" will appear on the LCD display if paper or labels are stuck inside the printer or drum unit.

Try to print a test page, if this comes out in black in yellow take out the cartridges and make sure the plastic is taken off the bottom and pop them back in. Do a test page again. Does it now print in colour and are there any errors on the machine or pc? i.e. out of ink?

THANK YOU, CLIVE!!! It took me a while to understand that hitting the "start" button cycled through a bunch of things until it finally landed on the "purge" message. From there, it all worked like a charm. Thanks!

Open the scanner lid and close it again. this way you get a "reset" of error code and he continues to wok again.

To scan legal documents you need to set the scanner to legal. GO to Start menu / all programs / brother / scanner utility and set the size to legal.
