    i cleaned the encoder strip. it gave me before an error 50, and i followed you instructions. now it gives error 51, and i dont know whats the problem. please give me something more specific. thanks.

  • ssterjo Nov 09, 2007

    nothing yet. i dont think the encoder is the problem. as far as i know, the error nr. for the encoder strip is 50, mine is 51, and the encoder strip is correctly in place. thanks

  • ssterjo Nov 10, 2007

    ok, thank you. can you tell me which part is the purge cam? in a photo maybe? can i buy it? will it cost much? thanks

  • ssterjo Nov 15, 2007

    i found this on a web page:



    51
    The purge cam HP switch sticks to ON in the initialization sequence.


    what does it mean? can i repair the purge switch now? should i clean it or what? please answer asap.

  • ssterjo Nov 18, 2007

    maybe im wrong, but i dont see any broken gears or any other piece inside. however, i dismounted the purge, and all the gears fell out. can you send me a photo how the gears were, so i can remount it and try it a last time please? i just want to find the places of every part, because i dont remember. thanks

  • ssterjo Nov 18, 2007

    please tell me how to remount the purge cam in the printer. the gears and the other parts have fallen when i dismounted it, and i dont know their places. please help

  • ssterjo Nov 18, 2007

    i dont need instructions, just a photo of the working purge, so i can see how the gears were, in order to remount them. remounting them is not a problem, i just dont remember how they were.

Try stamping your feet on the printer for 5 times, carry the printer up with ur master hand and smash it against the wall for 8 times. Make sure there is crack on the scanner cover. Last step, dump the whole thing into the nearest rubbish bin..

Hi sorry I can not speak English, but my contribution to the failure dcp130 error 50, brother of the motor car has a lot of trouble enegia, how to test the engine is so easy to move the head with his hand from one side to and another notice that a recall is not only free to do what we can with the printer off.

You have to open the printer to fix the encoder strip which might be stained with ink (in this case it has to be replaced). Search here for error 50 (which is nearly the same issue) and see how to open the printer and to fix it.

BTW: The error codes for inkjet printers are different to the laser ones ;-) All brother inkjets useing the same carts have the same technique!

    When reinserting the encoder strip plz watch the triangle sign! You can see this arrow (triangle) on the edge of one side of the encoder strip. The arrow has to show upwards and must be positioned on the right side where the purge station is.

    Please make sure that the encoder strip is in good position within the printhead. Will post a picture later on!

    Sounds that the purge cam shift is broken. Sorry, this cant be fixed anymore.

    You cant fix it by yourself:
    The spare part will cost more than a new dcp 130c!

    Dont waste your time and money!

    Go buy a new one or a good running 2nd hand one!
    ..and sell the defectiv one at eBay!

    you cant fix it because its a allinone built which means that the purge engine and the paper feeder are one part which are driven by changing gears (yes, its the idea of a motorcar gear). one of the part is broken. 

  • Mix-it-up
    Mix-it-up Nov 18, 2007

    Sorry. Cant give you a hand, because the print engine is a built-in-one incl. purge station and paper feeder. I dont know how to rebuilt that. 

    Techs NEVER repair one of those parts and change the whole unit when a error indicates a prob with that
    (time is money, you know).
    Sorry!

On Brother Printer, Machine error 351 indicates that there is a malfunction of laser unit. This error means that the laser beam is not being detected. Just do one thing switch off the the printer off and back on again. Still the error is showing then it means your laser safety flap got defective and your laser unit may need to be replaced.

Error code 51? F & F intuitive washer


Hi just read your posting.Error code 51 means you have a Recirculation Fault.This means while the machine is filling or washing it loses water.Error code 37 means you have Pump Block error which means the machine is not draining.Please look under the machine to the front right and you should see a pump with a red or black fan attached.Can you confirm this please? I think there is a problem with your diverter valve and the information on your type of pump will help me rectify this problem for you.Please reply with additional information on the type of pump in your machine.Looking forward to your reply.

Brother MFC-665CW has error code 51, no paper found in paper path. Can it be fixed cheeply?


Hi


Error code 51 means that there is due to wate ink pads which are full. You'll need to clean these pads to remove the error message. Also check for any small bits of paper stuck under the printhead (check under the carriage). Try removing the cartridges and check for any bits of paper. Before doing any of the above said things please turn off the printer and unplug it from power source.

If this doesn't work then its an issue with the purge unit. The purge unit is responsible for carriage movement on the chrome bar.

Please tell me if you need further assistance,

Ddo problem


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Error DDo means dispenser drawer open. There is a little magnet attached to the right hand side of the detergent drawer which activates a reed switch to "tell" the machine that the drawer is closed. That magnet might have moved from it's place and that's why you are getting error ddo. magnet is part key number 51. Pull the drawer out and check on the handle part for a magnet. When the drawer is closed the magnet activates a switch in the console that tells the control the detergent drawer is closed. Please check this link for details(part #51)--

ftp://ftp.electrolux-na.com/ProdInfo_PDF/Webster/5995430112.pdf

You can glue the magnet back and the error will go way.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Error code


and even if you did get rid of error 51 that you have created, you will find that you still cant print in black, original problem is the print head is stuffed probally from dodgy non gen ink running threw it and the fix is to replace head. I don't know who is telling all you brother mfc owners to clean your print head but your paddling up the wrong creek, these heads are electronic deivices that dont take kindly to cleaning, they are not the same as other brands.
