Ways To Fix Error Codes Occurring While Using Brother® MFC Printer
What are the various tips to fix the error codes that can occur while using Brother MFC printer?
Brother Multi Function Center printers are the best printers, capable of doing multi-tasks like printing, faxing, copying, and scanning. But like any other printer, they also stop printing or give many error codes while performing the printing function due to faults on the user side. This can happen if the printer head is not cleaned regularly, if you are not using compatible networks, if you are wrongly installing or upgrading the printer, or if you are doing nothing but inviting error codes or error messages that block the printing function. To solve the problems, you need few precautions. Just clean the printing head daily without damaging the ink surface. Upgrade according to the tips. Use only wired connection for this MFC printer. Check whether enough power is drawn to your printer. Place the mirrors and cameras in your printer correctly. These tips will ensure you a good printing facility.
Common error codes that occur while printing and their solutions are given below:
- Error codes due to damage in fuser unit
- Error code SO5
- Error code E51
Error codes due to damage in fuser unit
Many error codes will be shown if the fuser unit of the printer gets damaged. Another error code E50 will appear when your fuser unit perishes. Heat roller gets destructed completely and that's why this error code appears. Black flashes on the screen and black pages will be the output. The solution is to replace it. When you buy a new one, make sure that your wire connection or ink is not in touch with the roller. Always clean the roller.
Error code SO5
This error code means the transfer of data is not taking place properly between the parallel port of your printer and your Personal Computer. You cannot do the printing if you are facing this problem i.e. a problem occurs with the data bus. Rebooting the computer may help you to fix this error. Most of the problems due to this error can be solved this way. Another option for you is to reset your printer.
