The 36 error mean: The machine does not work due to a paper jam. Clear the paper jam, if doesn't work maybe a sensor is dirt or bad. To disassambly the printer you need the service manual and some know how ( electronics knowledge).

All the best !

I use generic cartridges all the time in my brother printers with no problem. better to pay $2 per cartridge than whatever the brother brand ones cost!

Yes, you can manually clean the printhead. I can't provide step by step instructions, but the print head is the piece that your ink cartridges go into. There is probably a lever that holds it locaked into place. You will want to take out the ink, then open the lever and remove the print head. Then clean where the ink cartridges sit, then gently clean any coppor contacts you see and then clean the print nozzles on the bottom of the print head. Do all of this with distilled water. Dry completely and re-install along with your ink.

If this doesn't solve the issue, you can buy replacement print heads.

Common error of brother mfc/dcp printers.
Unfurtunately there is nothing what you can do.

Call brother hotline ask for service/guarantee repair.

I have figured it out! I have a Brother MFC 240CN and I was having the same alignment problem and I followed the instructions from the printer prompt as well as the manual and it does not work.

So, this is what I did. I ran the alignment test print, then when it asked if it matches, I would say "No". And then I would pick number "8" to be the one that most closely matched "0" regardless if it did or not. I did this for the 600 and 1200dpi. Then when I ran the alignment test print again, it looked better! So I repeated it again and again picking "8" each time and it looked better with every test print. After about 4 or 5 tries, it looked normal again!

I hope everyone else with this problem will see this response and I hope it works too. I was getting so frustrated with this problem. Now I don't have to get it serviced or buy a new printer!

Easy solution is to download drivers from the brother website. Takes just a few minutes and you should then be up and running or printing.

Use bin and purchase new. Repair costs are high.

The connecting depends on several issues. This cant be said within a few words.
You have to read the manual which explains the very diffrent setting (see chap. fax). You can download the manual here: (choose your country from landscape, choose your country, choose download&support)
Have a look at the faq, too.

If that doesnt help, plz call brother hotline of your country!
