Question about Brother DCP 165C Compact Color Inkjet Multifunction Printer
I think the encoder strip needs to be cleaned with a lint free cloth. If the
encoder strip gets dirty, many different problems can occur.
If the machine still errors, the encoder strip needs to be replaced - Part Number LS4467001
If the machine still errors, replace the carriage PCB assembly - Part Number LS6543001
If the machine still errors, replace the Printhead - Part Number LK3211001
If the machine still errors, replace the Main PCB assembly - Part Number LT0284011
