I took my Brother MFC-3220c in for the upgraded computer replacement, Brothers had mailed me about. No cost. Now the fax machine cleans the heads every hour or so and wastes a lot of ink for nothing. I have had to stop using it and have it boxed up, sitting in my garage. I would LOVE to use it again. Can you help?
*Oh, and can I set it, so it only does black and white faxes? Color costs too much and I usually need only black and white documents/copies anyway.
Since my original posting back in Aug07, I have two other ideas. 1. Only turn it on when you need to use it, and/or 2. replace all ink cartridges with black ink. Both ideas somewhat reduces it's functionability, but it may help a little.

hi karn..you need to disasemble your printer and clean your Maintenance unit....the coz of this error 51 is usually you are using competetor ink and then you have reset the counter (error 46) ,after you reset it, you need to change ink absorber if not it will bank those waste ink in the ink absorber and after it is full the waste ink have no place to store and it will jam the mantenance unit and the worse case it the ink maybe spoil other part of the printer go and find engineer asap if not you need to replace new unit....
No, its not possible. The problem is likely the ink has dried in the purge unit or one of the small tubes going to the waste pad. The new printhead is the fix for the ERROR 41. The problem is there is sometimes other things that go bad, purge unit being just one example. One of the biggest problems with inkjets is that consumers leave their printers alone for long periods of time and the ink dries and clogs the tiny hoses inside. Even the ink cartdriges are just ink tanks, I have replaced those many times and have seen bad ones that just won't flow, replaced the inks and it works fine. You also have to put in the id# for the printhead after you replace it. Did you do that or get the instructions?
